IN STORES: Tuesday 12/1

It's amazing that American Idol top-four finalist Allison Iraheta is only 17 -- her gritty voice gives her debut disc much-needed moxie. She's a ringer for Pink on "No One Else" and when backed by a piano and strings on "Trouble Is." So what is the trouble? Like many Idols' first efforts, Iraheta squanders her gifts on immature, hastily selected material. Worst offender: "Robot Love," in which she frets that her guy likes his gadgets more than he likes her. (19/Jive)
