Details Release Date: Apr 13, 2010; Lead Performance: Jason Castro; Genre: Pop

The American Idol season 7 finalist's debut album comes on like an early spring day. You can feel the sun shining through 
hummable tracks like ''Closer,'' but hints of a harsher season remain on ''It Matters to Me'' and the heartbreaking ''You Can Always Come Home.'' (FYI: The deluxe version, with six extra tracks, is well worth springing for.) B+
