I have only heard Clay's TITN on the radio and agree his AI performance was better. My station hasn't played BOTW yet.
Ruben's CD shows his talent much better than his AI performances. I do wish they would have given him an original song and put Kiss and Say Good-bye on the CD, but that's just my opinion. His sales would have been much better, since FWOW isn't a fan fave and Superstar was already on the Love Songs CD. No matter, I love his voice enough to listen to both sides of his CD throughout each day.
Everything on the Love Songs CD is pretty good, although I usually skip Carmen and only listen to Kim C because the song itself is one of my favorites.
Kelly's CD is very good, and the more I listen to Justin's, the more I like it. Why do I think I'll like Tamyra's more than either of those? Guess she'll have to wait until after Ruben and Clay drop theirs now. Looking forward to more AI CDs and enjoying those I have in the meantime, including the first season's compilation.
