Editorial Reviews

International 2006 reissue of the debut album from the singer/songwriter who has achieved enormous success with singles such as 'Bad Day'. This new version of the album features the recently recorded bonus track, 'Love You Lately'. The album confirms Powter's fine songwriting talents with standout tracks like the memorable opening cut "Song 6", the driving melodies of "Suspect" and the delicate ballad "Jimmy Gets High". The first single, "Bad Day" is a remarkably infectious pop song that was a huge hit in Europe in Spring 2005 and used on "American Idol" for contestant elimination segments. 11 tracks total. WEA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for a Bad Day October 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a phenomenal debut album from Daniel Powter. The stubbly-jawed, green-eyed, beanie-wearing 34 year old Canadian singer/songwriter gives a very impressive account of himself, and has already sold more than 100,000 albums, due mainly to a killer first single "Bad Day", something with which we can all identify.

"Where is the moment when we need it the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue sky's faded to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carrying on

Stand in the line just ahead of the law
You're faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces every time
And I don't need no carrying on

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day"

Powter wrote the songs on this album over a one year period, his musical taste inspired by childhood violin sessions, accompanying his mother on piano. The second single will be "Free Loop", but the excellent "Song 6" would also have been a great pick.

This album is definitely a keeper, other great tracks being "Jimmy Gets High" and "Lie to Me" (falsetto bits and all), "Styrofoam" and "Hollywood", but then every track is a potential single. The only problem is that there are only ten songs, and that's a crying shame.

This is no ordinary debut CD--when I got it as a gift a few days ago I had never even heard of Daniel! He's going to be a force to contend with by his peers. There's the strong and beautifully arranged song "Suspect" where he shows his feelings for another as he sings how "all (he's) thinking about is you." The CD also starts off rather strong with two songs entitled "Song 6" and "Free Loop." They are both great tracks, even though "Song 6" is more mellow and even has a somewhat '70s R & B feel to the melody while "Free Loop" has a quasi-rock feel to it. Look for songs like these to be on the airwaves in the coming months!

When we were discussing the CD, somebody said that the album is simply too short for the money you'll pay to own it. If they're trying to tell you that this CD is not worth your money, they are WRONG! Just one listen and you can tell that this album is a strong debut that leaves the listener already wondering what Daniel will do for his sophomore album. He can make his voice do a very interesting falsetto and he was brave to put different types of songs on his debut album. He took a chance and according to the charts it is only the beginning of the pay-off! As I mentioned earlier, there is a contrast in style between "Song 6" and "Free Loop." In addition, "Suspect" has a "harder" rock feel to the melody and "Jimmy Gets High" is quite a cynical story that yet is quite engaging and beautifully written all at the same time.

In short, I am VERY impressed with Daniel's debut album. The moving song "Give Me Life" with its great melody is well placed as the ending track, too. Daniel wrote songs for his CD which proves he can both write as well as perform.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated!
Daniel Powter is truly under-rated as his ability to build vocal styles without repeating them (as many of today's singers do) makes him really special. I loved this whole CD.

I really like this CD!
I would have given 5 stars if it include the lyrics.
What is THAT about?!
The only way to get the lyrics is to do a computer search.
