Music Review: Finally It’s Christmas

From a young age, I’ve grown up listening to boy-bands. N’Sync, the Backstreet Boys, Boys II Men, the Jonas Brothers… these are all bands whose music I spent most of my childhood listening to. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I still listen to this type of music often.  Because even if the majority of them generally appeal to […]

Music Review: “Look What You Made Me Do” (CD Single)

Here at A Kid’s Point of View, I respect everyone’s opinions… including those who like Taylor Swift… but I’ve got to be honest. Her new song “Look What You Made Me Do,” from her upcoming sixth album “reputation,” is making me wonder WHAT IN THE WORLD has music become?! While the song sort of has […]

Music Review: “At This Moment/If You Don’t Know Me by Now” (CD Single)

The Nashville-based duo (consisting of writer-producer team Coury Palermo & Ron Robinson) just released their latest concept album, Nine Lives— a 9-track album that consists of […]

Music Review: “Merry Christmas Baby” (CD Single)

I have to be honest here, Disney Channel was a large part of my childhood. Some of my earliest memories involve rocking out to Disney CDs on my portable CD player. These albums often consisted of songs by artists such as Aly & AJ, the Jonas Brothers, and Miley Cyrus– some of the most popular Hollywood Records artists […]

Music Review: “Scars To Your Beautiful” (CD Single)

It’s something that’s been written about before. Songs such as Britt Nicole’s crossover hit “Gold,” Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway,” or Beyonce’s “Listen” all have this recurring theme: inner beauty and what happens if you believe in yourself. The underlying message is even present within various forms of Disney media, such as the 2008 children’s song “Fly […]

Music Review: Beautiful Awakening

Does anyone remember Stacie Orrico’s song “I’m Not Missing You?” One of the most popular songs of 2006, this upbeat pop/R&B track was different from any other breakup song. Instead of lamenting the relationship that once was, the lyrics talk about leaving behind the past and moving on with your life after a breakup. It […]

Music Review: A Jann Arden Christmas

Every year, various artists release their versions of Christmas music. Most of the time, the artists have changed the sound of these holiday classics– either to establish their sound as musicians (i.e. Shane & Shane’s 2008 album “Glory In The Highest“), or to fit in with the popular styles of music (for example, Idina Menzel’s […]

Music Review: A Very 1 Girl Nation Christmas (EP)

“I can’t even listen to this anymore. Your voices together, are just too amazing.” ~Gwen Stefani, talking about a Battle Rounds performance on Season 9 of The Voice. Although we may be slightly exaggerating, this was our reaction when we heard 1 Girl Nation’s Christmas track, [amazon_textlink asin=’B00O472AVW’ text=’“Joy.“’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’akidspov-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’03b1111d-80f8-11e7-b2ca-df912cbddb4f’] The lead […]

Music Review: “Area Code” (CD Single)

Nick Jonas is definitely making a name for himself as a solo artist. Hot on the heels of his latest #1 hit, “[amazon_textlink asin=’B0181SN52C’ text=’Levels,’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’akidspov-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’8d0132f6-80f8-11e7-94d0-f324ead71999′]” the 23-year-old singer/songwriter unexpectedly released a new track, “Area Code,” last month on SoundCloud.
