Listen Up! Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

As happy as I am for Demi rising from the ashes (seriously, you go girl), I don't know if I can dig this new tune. The metaphor is cool, don't get me wrong — I just gotta ask what is up with those overly strained vocals?!? They make it sound like she's a victim in pain, not like the stronger individual she has ultimately become. Hopefully the rest of the album will contain more confident vocals from miss DL, encouraging girls to seek help for their troubles like she did.
