Mandy Moore’s Amanda Leigh is an absolutely wonderful, beautiful, and most importantly, musical album full of fantastic songs. Country, folk, rock, and pop are all blended together to create one of the few truly great albums of the 21st century that I have heard so far. When I emphasized the word “musical,” it is because this is completely different from Moore’s first few albums. People who know my tastes in music would never believe that I liked a Mandy Moore album, were it not for the fact that this particular Moore album sounds like it’s from a completely different artist. Laugh at me for saying that if you want, but that just means that you haven’t actually heard the album. Amanda Leigh (Moore’s real life name) is a genuinely heartfelt, enjoyable, emotionally satisfying work of art.
