Cry aims to keep the hits coming while widening her range even further beyond her Nashville beginnings. Between the Bon Jovi-ish ballads and Britney-esque beats are studio quirks that ma-terialize for a few hip moments before getting out of the way of Hill's smooth bellow. "I Think I Will" begins with Middle Eastern percussion and string instruments, while "Beautiful" encircles a slow-burning guitar solo evocative of classic Pink Floyd. Yet Cry remains contrived, an album of crocodile tears from an entertainer who can sing anything but often means nothing.
