On Metacritic, a website that compiles various reviews, the album received a score of 62, indicating generally favorable reviews. They note that "[her] high notes are sweet and pillowy, her growl is bone-shaking and sexy, and her midrange is amazingly confident for a pop posy whose career is tied for eternity to the whims of her American Idol overlords".
Release of the album was preceded by the single " Miss Independent ", which became a top 10 Billboard Hot hit and a number one top 40 smash. In thanks to the success of the single, as well as buzz from her American Idol win Clarkson also appeared several times on the show's second season to promote Thankful , the album sold well in the United States.
It managed to debut at number one on the Billboard with , copies sold. The album sold over 1 million copies in six weeks. Adapted from AllMusic. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Kelly Clarkson.

Never before had a rock guitarist played with such breathtaking speed and precision. There are fast runs, slow harmonies and some really nice arpeggios in them.
In the early Seventies, still buzzing from the success of Tommy , Pete Townshend labored long and hard on an elaborate concept piece called Lifehouse. So the band took nine of the best songs from the project, went into the studio with producer Glynn Johns and emerged with one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time.
In the end I had an actual nervous breakdown. Their previous album, Dark Side of the Moon , had been a massive success, and the pressure was on them to come up with something just as remarkable, both artistically and commercially.
Bassist Roger Waters and drummer Nick Mason were working through marital strained relations, which would end in divorce for both couples. Within Abbey Road, Waters and guitarist David Gilmour were quarreling over musical direction—the early stages of a friction that flared into an all-out conflagration by the time the group made The Wall some four years later.
In these volatile relationships, Waters found his grand theme for Wish You Were Here : the music business itself, and its tendency to crush the dreams of those who pursue fame, fortune and a chance at creative self-expression. And for me, Wish You Were Here is the most satisfying album. I really love it. They came out of L. The aptly named Rage Against the Machine combined the ghetto anger of hip-hop and the testosterone fury of metal with a keenly felt political mandate to champion the oppressed and fight the abuses of privilege and power.
It was a new and exciting concept back then, and what really drove the point home was the fiercely disruptive guitar work of a Harvard educated young Marxist named Tom Morello.
The napalm cry of exploding bombs, the jagged rhythm of strafing machine guns—Morello wrought seemingly impossible sounds with his ax and became an innovative and radical force in metal, as Hendrix and Van Halen had before him. The rhythmic freedom they have to drop sounds into a track.
Peaking at No. Unlike Jeff Beck on his jazz-inspired Wired and Blow by Blow albums, Satch aimed below the belt instead of at the brain, rocking out with balls-to-the-wall abandon.
The Stones were on a roll in the early Seventies, riding out a long creative streak. Exile on Main St. Richards was wasted on smack but in top musical form, nonetheless, and coguitarist Mick Taylor was fitting like a glove.
Exile was a perfect moment in the summertime of rock that would never again be equaled by the Stones—or anyone else. It came out of a haunted mansion in the Hollywood Hills—the album that established the Red Hot Chili Peppers as major-league contenders in the game of rock.
By this point, the Peppers had survived the Eighties L. But now they had John Frusciante in the fold, not to mention producer Rick Rubin, who worked with the band for the first time on Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Breaking into the mainstream was a real change in our lives. Also it was a time when John brought a whole new concept into the band as a guitar player and songwriter.
It suddenly gave us so much more to draw from—a bigger launch pad for us all to get launched into outer space from.
What you have with Number of the Beast is the musical equivalent. Prior to its recording, Iron Maiden were a band in transition. Now, the remaining members—bassist Steve Harris, guitarists Dave Murray and Adrian Smith, and drummer Clive Burr—faced the challenge of building upon their accomplishments with an unproven frontman.
What happened next is the stuff of modern mythology. Dickinson, then the singer in Samson, had been watching Maiden from the pit on their tours—and thinking that he could do a rather better job of fronting them. The Beast lineup was in place, consolidated by the return of Martin Birch, the production legend who had given Killers its muscle and whose past clients included Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.
With little more than a desire to make a record that would maintain their career trajectory, Maiden headed into the Battery Studios to start work. When they lef, they were armed with what many consider the most important metal album of the decade. The Number of the Beast was anything but a lobotomized metal juggernaut. Thanks in part to Dickinson—who, alongside his abilities as a vocalist, was obsessed with military history, fencing and literature—the new album combined its aggression with imagination and an awareness of culture.
Some burned the record in mass bonfires; others battered it into shards with hammers. As the band toured the U. Fortunately, the hand wringing of the minority could not change the fact that Maiden had found their audience.
Even with no airplay and little marketing, The Number of the Beast reached 33 on the Billboard Pop charts, earning a Gold disc the following year and going Platinum a few years later, setting up the band for the hallowed position they occupy to this day. Stevie Ray Vaughan had a tremendous impact in his too-brief career, which featured just four studio albums and one live recording. Those covers were probably the most embarrassing thing I've ever been involved with. The White Stratocaster shown on the cover belonged to Roth and he can be seen playing the same guitar on the cover of the Electric Sun album Fire Wind.
This is the guitar that Roth used on all subsequent Scorpions and Electric Sun albums on which he played. This was the band's first album to feature the band's name written in the now-familiar font used on nearly all subsequent album covers, as well as their first collaboration with producer Dieter Dierks.
