Candice Glover originally planned to release her debut two months after she won "American Idol" last May."Die Without You" echoes Brandy -- but with stronger vocals -- while "Same Kind of Man" and the powerful "Forever That Man" mirror Fantasia.The 24-year-old hasn't found her voice entirely, and all of the songs aren't complete winners (like the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced "Passenger"), but Glover demonstrates promise as she shows she's more than a balladeer: She coos beautifully on "Kiss Me," which sounds like a future radio hit; she shines on the beat-driven, Southern hip-hop-flavored "Coulda Been Me," co-written by Ester Dean; and "In the Middle" surprisingly interpolates Shabba Ranks' "Ting-A-Ling" in a good way.On the piano-tune "Damn," she nails the song when she sings of falling in love with another woman's lover in a calm tone.Glover stole the show on "Idol" when she adapted her voice to a wide-range of songs, from Paula Abdul's "Straight Up" to the Cure's "Lovesong," which she includes on the new album.
