Critics like Newsday's Glenn Gamboa are praising Kelly's new album, highlighting that she mixes old sounds with something. Newsday gave the album four stars. Glenn writes:
Clarkson isn’t content with simply mining old-school soul, though. She looks to innovate, as she does in “Whole Lotta Woman,” where she takes a throwback soul arrangement and adds intricate, current R&B phrasing and lyrics like “I’m a strong, bad-ass chick with classic confidence” to create something new.
Clarkson has had finer singles, but “Meaning of Life” is the best album of her career, a chance to declare her ambitions and deliver on them time and time again for her most cohesive album yet.
But "Breakaway" was a milestone in Kelly's impressive pop career. The album features an array of hit pop-rock anthems, like "Since U Been Gone," which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The smash is regarded as one of Kelly's signature hits.
Many fans revere "Breakaway" as Kelly's best album to date. It's filled with pop hits and is certified 6x multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. "Breakaway" won Best Pop Vocal Album at 48th Annual Grammy Awards in 2006. Listen to the LP below via Spotify.
