After a little bit of controversy surrounding her pregnancy status with her first child, Ashlee Simpson stepped away from the public media eye and stopped promoting this 2008 album. The halt in promotion could’ve been the reason why the record debuted at #4 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, but ultimately did not certify gold or platinum, which is unfortunate because it was a solid record. A departure from her contemporary-pop 1st album “Autobiography,” “Bittersweet World” took an unorthodox cue from 70’s and 80’s pop-rock with a tinge of punk. Funky, fun and full of attitude, “World” discusses relationship issues between lighter-hearted tunes. An album sampler is below.
