Us Rating: * 1/2

Former paint salesman Lee DeWyze won the dullest season ever of American Idol -- and now he has a solo disc as exciting as, well, watching paint dry. He bends his formidable, husky croon to mimic John Mayer ("Dear Isabelle"), Jack Johnson ("Weightless") and even fellow Idol David Cook ("Me and My Jealousy"). But he fails to reveal his own identity -- or leave an impression. (19 Recordings/RCA)
