With all the "I hate Ashlee Simpson because it's the popular thing to do" crap flying around, I felt I needed to step up. I own the album....by choice. I think it is a FANTASTIC sounding record. John Shanks produced it and played 90% of the instruments on there. Terrific guitar tones and nice pop/rock arrangements. With that said, I will be the first to admit that she's another 'canned' act who was created by the record company to make them rich, but everyone acts like she is the first one! Please! They've been doing this for years! Why is it that she is picked on the most and people feel the need to make an example out of her? When she messed up on SNL the entire world was like "OMG! She uses tracks!" News Flash: Most modern day performers do! For the most part I can understand where most people are coming from, but it seems to be the in thing to hate Ashlee Simpson. I'm just waiting for Hot Topic to start selling "Ashl33 S1mps0n is the Sux0rs!!!!" t-shirts. Please people. Get over it! It's not a huge deal.
