We have to admit: We have a hard time taking romantic ballads and lovelorn slow jams seriously when they come from teenagers. Which is kind of illogical, considering teenagers spend a lot of time obsessing about their broken hearts. But thankfully, Vanessa Hudgens doesn't devote too much of her second album to puppy love, although "Don't Ask Why" is pretty sweet and the Dr. Luke-produced broken-heart-with-a-beat jam "First Bad Habit" is compelling. Ms. High School Musical's best tracks -- like the Fergie-fied "Hook It Up" -- are all about going out, having fun and flirting.
