A Little More Personal (Raw) is the second studio album by American actress and singer Lindsay Lohan, released on December 5, 2005, through the Casablanca label. Initially titled There's Only One Angel In Heaven, the album features darker material than Lohan's debut album Speak (2004). Recording sessions took place in several locations, including at Lohan's trailer during the shoot of the film Herbie: Fully Loaded, where she recorded her vocals for the only single of the album: “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)”. A Little More Personal (Raw) received mixed reviews from music critics, who praised Lohan's ambition, despite considering it a weak album. The album charted mildly compared to Speak, debuting (and also peaking) at number twenty on the US Billboard 200 chart with first week sales of 82,000 copies, and also peaking at the same position on the Digital Albums chart. However, A Little More Personal (Raw) was certified Gold in the United States by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of over 500,000 copies. It was also certified Gold in Taiwan. Lohan promoted the album with a few television appearances, including at MTV's Total Request Live, The Ellen Show and the 2005 American Music Awards.

A Little More Personal (Raw) received mixed reviews from critics. The album holds a score of 50 out of 100 based on 9 critical reviews, according to the music review aggregator Metacritic. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic gave the album three stars out of five, saying, “Lindsay Lohan clearly spells out her ambition in the title to her second album, A Little More Personal (Raw) -- she's going to shed the glitzy trappings of her debut, Speak, and dig down deep in her heart, letting feelings flood onto the page”. Erlewine also stated that the album “is far from being totally successful, it is an intriguing mash-up of heart and commerce. And it does suggest one thing that Speak never did: Lindsay Lohan may have an artistic vision as a recording artist, which is indeed a huge step forward”. Entertainment Weekly 's Leah Greenblatt said, “like so many pop records today, Personal has more than its share of filler, and like all teenagers, Lohan contradicts herself. [...] Perhaps Personal 's vulnerability is calculated, and its rawness a misnomer, or maybe she's really opening up. We'll probably never know. Lindsay may no longer be on the edge of 17, but being 19, troubled, and ridiculously famous can cut pretty deep, so props to her for letting us see her bleed — just a little”. Brian Hiatt of Rolling Stone said Lohan “makes a fatal mistake on her second album: She tries to, like, express herself”, while a Los Angeles Times critic also gave the album a negative review, claiming that, “for most of the album, [Lohan] sounds like any other self-absorbed teen, yearning to be Alanis, Gwen and even Stevie Nicks.” Whitney Strub of PopMatters stated, “what can one expect from an album that promises to get more personal but includes lyrics declaring, “no one knows how I feel inside/And I’m keeping it that way” (from “Fastlane”)?”, and commenting that “with A Little More Personal, Lindsay Lohan reminds us that, despite such blossoms, pop still has the potential to climb the charts while combining blandness, banality and vapidity”. Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine considered A Little More Personal (Raw) “more consistent than its predecessor, and it's not a bad listen by any means, but for all the so-called weighty subject matter, there's not much meat on these bones”.
