Although Lindsay Lohan's new album, A Little More Personal (Raw), doesn’t come out until Dec. 6, the CD is already getting high marks from MTV News, which finds her work on the disc to be multi-dimensional, especially when the content involves her troubled father.

The album, Lohan's second, follows her 2004 Speak, which bowed at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart and to date has sold more than 1 million copies in the U.S., as tallied by Nielsen SoundScan.

For the new album, the Mean Girls and Herbie: Fully Loaded actress has directed the video for the main track, "Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)," reports Billboard. She will also perform the song at the Nov. 22 American Music Awards, to be broadcast live on ABC.

As for the content of the song, Lohan, 19, examines whether her father, Michael Lohan – who is currently serving time in prison for DUI and assault, among other crimes – ever loved her. Michael also serves as the focus of another song, "My Innocence," in which his daughter accuses him of robbing her of her childhood.

As the song goes, as quoted by MTV: "You broke me in with your mistakes …Thanks for the breakthrough." She also credits her independent spirit to his having been an absentee father.

Other subjects that she confronts in her songs are boyfriends who sent mixed signals ("A Little More Personal") or else dropped her for someone else ("If You Were Me"). Stardom gets set to music, too, in both "A Beautiful Life" and "Fast Lane."

In the latter, MTV quotes the lyrics as revealing Lohan to muse: "So I drive around this superficial town/ With a smile on my face/ No one really knows how I feel inside/ And I'm keeping it that way."
