Aly & AJ
Into the Rush by SoCal sibling duo Aly & AJ, Disney's second consecutive tween-pop project to cross over successfully from Radio Disney to mainstream Top 40 (following the strangely superpowered High School Musical soundtrack), is perfect for Kelly Clarkson fans tired of waiting around for the first-season American Idol to follow up 2004's Breakaway. It's high-gloss blow-dry pop about being all that you can be in the face of middle school misanthropy. Not everything on Rush is as thrilling as "Rush," Aly & AJ's "Since U Been Gone," but on stage the girls rock quite a bit harder than many of their mall-core cohorts.
