solid follow up
Posted July 15, 2009
First off I am still not sure if Daughtry is a christian artist. He does have some songs that one might see as a spiritual/christian based but the cd as a whole leaves me wondering. It is clear he is a christian but doesn't mean his cd is.
That being said I am hooked on his new project "Leave This Town" The first half of the album is amazing. Some songs are a little more upbeat then his previous project, and he also has a few more slower ballads, which makes a good blend. He has plenty of amazing songs that I feel will have great success on the radio. By Surprise, his first single, has already started climbing the charts.
My favorite song on the album is Life After You. It is a great love song, and has some amazing lyrics. It is not the most upbeat song on the project but i find myself drawn to it, hitting the repeat button many times. Also is a song i can kind of see a christian based message in it.
The first half of the project is strong...but I find myself losing a little interest with the last few songs. They are not as catchy or profound as the earlier songs.
Overall this cd is amazing. 8 or 9 songs out of 12 that i like isn't to shabby. As stated earlier I love the first half of the cd but starts to sizzle slightly towards the end. Daughty is my favorite american idol contestant and still think he should have won. Glad to see that it didn't phase him and has continued to thrive. Probably the most successful idol who didn't win/also more successful then many who have won.
