Lovato stands for survival

After spending almost four months in treatment for emotional and physical distress, Demi Lovato is back with an album that turns personal hardship into soulful gold.

“Unbroken” establishes the Disney star as an emotive performer with a strong sense of artistic direction that elevates her above her musical competition.

The would-be diary entry turned album track, “Fix a Heart,” touches on Lovato’s personal struggles with self-control. The emotional turmoil described in the song is accented by a quiet piano that never draws attention away from lyrics that painfully reveal, “I tried to sever ties and I/ Ended up with wounds to bind.” This ballad capitalizes on the nuances of the human experience without trivializing them, a virtue that transcends the confines of run-of-the-mill pop music.

Overall, the album’s message stands as a testament to survival and, more importantly, a testament to hope.
