Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Love has the power to lift and affirm in times of trouble ("Amazed"). Hudgens apologizes for hurting someone during a season of misplaced priorities ("Don't Leave"). On "Gone With the Wind" she asserts that she's comfortable with herself and won't be bullied into following the crowd ("Now I'm standing my ground/Am who I am, and for that I'm proud"). A girl can see that a relationship isn't healthy for her, however ...

Objectionable Content

Against her better judgment she keeps going back for more ("First Bad Habit"). Similar dysfunction creeps into "Last Night," on which the singer excuses a partner's extracurricular activities as long as she doesn't have to hear about them. Hudgens toys with dating a guy she's been warned is only after "one thing" ("Identified"). The party anthem "Hook It Up" says friends will be "hookin' up with someone" in the context of dancing. That song also uses a mild profanity, and it respects a guy for having cash and a woman for her "hottie body." The line "I gave you everything; body, mind, heart and soul" could imply a sexual history on the lovelorn "Don't Leave."

Summary Advisory

When it comes to sensuality, the singer/actress best known as High School Musical's Gabriella Montez is no Janet Jackson. Still, mildly suggestive lyrics and squishy morality make her latest solo disc inappropriate for tween fans of those doe-eyed duets with Zac Efron.
