Jamie-Lynn Sigler, better known as main protagonist Tony Soprano's daughter Meadow in the HBO Mafia series The Sopranos, runs through a set of contemporary pop tunes in her debut album, HERE TO HEAVEN that'll be familiar to fans of Britney Spears and sundry other teen queens. Sigler's voice is almost buried in many of the multi-layered arrangements, but she successfully negotiates her way through the ballad "He Wouldn't Listen to My Dreams" and the simple "Little Mr. Heartbreak," revealing a voice that's still a work in progress (she's only 19) but can be quite affecting, given the right material. Elsewhere there's the predictable Sopranos reference of "Bada Bing" (the name of the strip club that's a Mob front in the series) which here is a pop-soaked, harmony-heavy behemoth, and the Latin-tinged "Ole Ole" in which Sigler gets to show her Cuban roots.
