Jem, the Welsh singer-songwriter whose name is synonymous with the hit show “The O.C.,” releases her second solo album, Down to Earth. Do not expect this to be amazing (despite her favorite adjective to describe her tracks “Amazing Life” and “It’s Amazing”), as this album falls a bit short, packing a few hits worthy of “They” or her Paul McCartney cover of “Maybe I’m Amazed.”

Jem’s dance-y “Aciiid!” gets your heart pumping for about a 4.0 treadmill walk, and that’s about it. Jem sticks with her formula for a moderately successful record by maintaining her well-recognized palate of electronic, eclectic sampled effects.

Grade: B-
