Us Rating: ***

It's been eight years since Kimberly Caldwell, 29, was booted from American Idol -- but her first album turns out to be worth the wait. The TV host's robust, commanding singing style echoes Pink (note the striking similarity on "Naked") and transforms average material into an unexpectedly noteworthy piece of pop-rock. (Capitol)
