All I Ever Wanted is a 3.5/4 album according to the LA Times.

deluxe-edition While on the subject of Kelly Clarkson, her latest album, All I Ever Wanted has scored a 3.5/4 rating by the LA Times, here are some quotes from the review which can be fully read here:

Clarkson, ever the overachiever, has delivered on all counts. “All I Ever Wanted” is a masterful rapprochement with the mainstream, full of cheerfully ear-snagging tunes, inventive production, exhilarating vocals and enough inherent Kelly-ness to put aside fears that her label bosses implanted blond electrodes in her brain to make her behave.”

“The title track evokes the soul-rock fusions of Timbaland and Rihanna, while “Whyyouwannabringmedown” gives Clarkson a chance to howl the way she’s wanted to since her grunge-loving teen years.

“”All I Ever Wanted” also has a couple of the old-fashioned tear-jerkers that Clarkson does so well — “Cry,” which she cowrote, and songbird Keri Noble’s “If No One Will Listen,” which she produced — and an apparent Pink tribute song, “Don’t Let Me Stop You.””

“The album is a generous helping of the Kelly so many love — yes, Photoshopped and slicked up, but with her big, brilliantly accessible heart and voice intact.”
