After the commercial disappointment of 2007's My December, Kelly Clarkson goes back to giving the people what they want on her fourth CD. That means more of the radio-friendly pop-rock that made 2004's Breakaway a multiplatinum smash. In fact, "My Life Would Suck Without You," the infectious first single, which shot to No. 1, was produced by Dr. Luke and Max Martin, the same tandem that delivered "Since U Been Gone." Taking no chances, Clarkson enlists a roster of hitmakers, including OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder and Daughtry producer Howard Benson, who scores two slam dunks: "Don't Let Me Stop You" and the Katy Perry-cowritten "I Do Not Hook Up."
