4.0 out of 5 stars Daughtry Breathes New Life Into A Stale Genre. December 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heads up everyone - I'm a Taylor fan. With over 200 reviews on Amazon, I wasn't going to add my own, but so many "fans" from Chris, Kat, and Taylors boards are on the other boards bashing their releases, that I wanted to give a representation of a true music lover and show you all that we're out there.

My wife liked Chris during AI but, with the exception of "Hemorrhage" I heard the same bland nu-metal from him every week. And I hate nu-metal. Then he sang one of my favorite songs of all time - "What A Wonderful World" by the incredible Louis Armstrong. How in the world could a one-dimensional metal singer pull off a signature song by one of the greatest jazz artists of all time? Amazingly well, as it turned out, because Chris Daughtry is anything but one dimensional. In short, while I still supported Taylor each week, Daughtry made me sit up and listen, wondering what he would do next. And they just kept getting better - his version of Queen's "Innuendo" will stand tall as one of Idol's greatest performances, in my opinion.

And then, thankfully, he lost. I say thankfully, because I knew if there was anyone who would benefit the least from being sterilized by the Pop Juggernaut that is American Idol, it was Chris Daughtry.

When the album was announced, I pre-ordered it (along with Hicks'), even though I knew it would be similar to Nickleback. I can't stand Nickleback, but I wanted to support him; Idol "losers" typically don't fare well in the US. I never expected to like it.

Now I've listened to it a few times and - surprise - it's damned good, and will probably become one of the strongest debuts in Idol history.

"Daughtry" is based in nu-metal, make no mistake about it, but it's so much more.

For Chris Daughtry, finishing in fourth place in American Idol 2006 may have been the second biggest break (the first being making it on American Idol) of the young rocker's career. Had he gone on to win Idol (as he rightfully should have in my opinion), I believe we all would have been cheated in a way, and received a watered-down, corporate-friendly debut album.

When given the opportunity to join an already well-established band in Fuel upon his exit from the American Idol stage, Chris turned down the offer to the surprise of many. He instead wanted to return home to think about his career, and which of the many available paths he wanted to choose. He gathered up members of his previous band, labeled the group with the Bon Jovi like name of "Daughtry" and went into the studio to record what would be his major label debut.

With extremely high expectations set forth before him, Chris Daughtry delivered on just about every level possible. With his debut CD, the appropriately self-titled "Daughtry," Chris is able to captivate audiences of all types, ranging from the American Idol fans who supported him throughout his run on the show, to alternative rock crowds looking for a new artist to bring rock back to the forefront of the music industry.

Daughtry's first single "It's Not Over," went on to score number one's in multiple formats, and the second single "Home" is following sharply in its footsteps. From power rock songs like "What I Want" and "There and Back Again," to emotional ballads like "Home" and "What About Now," this CD truly has it all for just about anyone who is a fan of rock/pop music.

4.0 out of 5 stars So much better with the 2 bonus tracks January 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't aware that there were 2 different albums out there. I never saw the one with just 12 tracks. I snagged the one at walmart and thought it was both refreshing and also rather odd (considering today's music business mentality) to include 2 bonus tracks of songs that the full band does earlier on the album.

Anyways, these two bonus tracks really bring out a new dimension in Chris. It really showcases just how phenomenal a singer the guy is. The acoustic version of Crash is amazing. I think it would have been really awesome if the band had originally recorded crashed with Chris and the acoustic starting the song and then busting in after the first chorus with the full band for the remainder of the song. but yeah the two bonus tracks really bring out an extra side of chris that only a duet with an acoustic can do.

And as far as the nickleback comparisons, I can see some similarities but they're far from clones. Nickleback has become a cliche'd modern rock sound and unfortunately everyone new in the industry that wants to be a modern rock band is forced into the comparison with them. Nickelback continues to release the same record over and over with different lyrics. Hopefully Chris's band can separate themselves from Nickleback by avoiding this mistake.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary achievement November 22, 2006
By Neilisa
Format:Audio CD
Chris Daughty's much anticipated debut album is a amazing accomplishment. I normally don't give out five stars for debut albums, but this one has certainly earned it. It's a compilation of sheer brilliance with songs rich with emotion, drawing you in, traveling to your soul and wrapping you up in a cocoon that is nothing but raw, pure, unadulterated passion. Chris infuses so much of himself in each song that it's hard to pick a favorite track. There is no doubt that he is going to be around for a long time.

A few of my favorites:

It's not Over: Haunting, full of emotion, easily pulls you in and you forget yourself

Home: Heart-wrenching

Over You: Speaks of putting your heart back together after it's been broken. It's raw, angry, determined.

What About Now: This song rips into me everytime I hear it. It's about estrangement and what if.

By the way, If you like Nickelback, you'll like Chris Daughtry.
