Caitlin Crosby has appeared on such TV shows as Malcolm in the Middle, That '70s Show and 7th Heaven. But she's better than your average actress turned singer. Her credible pop-rock debut finds Crosby holding her own with the Colbie Caillats of the world. In fact the first single, "Still Have My Heart," has a summery bounce that recalls Caillat's "Bubbly." There are also shades of Pink on tracks like the empowering highlight, "Imperfect Is the New Perfect." On this song and the title tune, Crosby celebrates her flaws, her bluesy rasp adding a layer of earthiness.
