I have been listening to male singers for over 25 years and have bemoaned the loss of the level of skill that was once more readily available. Sinatra on ballads, Damone for tone, Darin for rhythm, Cook for style and so much more. I agree that David Archuleta's first album is targeted to his prime audience and that a few cuts are a bit heavy on the production side ( albeit with great recording studio skill ). For those of you, however, who like the art of singing, listen a second or a third time and focus on what David is doing with his voice. His phrasing, his breath control, his modulation during short phrases and his matching of the tone of his voice to the word is remarkable. On some songs , he actually alters the timber of his voice during a long note...listen to how he matches the word ( length of singing ) to the length of the note. Sinatra was wonderful at that so that he sounded like he was really singing words...not speaking them to music. Finally , David does not fish around for pitch...He must have close to perfect pitch and he always in the center of note..not sliding up to where he should be ..that permits him to be clear and to stay with a rhythm so well. On some of the upbeat songs he is using his voice as a musical instrument and not singing around the music. I know that it would not be sound business decision for an almost 18 year old but I would love for him to add a few standards that permit him to infuse emotion in the lyric and make some old songs new again. For example, his ' Imagine " will likely be the classic version for many young people going forward. David Archuleta has a rare gift and we should encourage him to use all of his skills to reform the modern definition of a performance standard.

I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this CD. Obviously, I knew I'd enjoy simply because of his voice, which is stellar. But I didn't know what the songs would be like, if they'd chosen Crush as the single because it was the only catchy song on the CD. Well, that could not have been any farther off than it was.

I absolutely love every single song on this CD. They all have really catchy beats and melodies, with touching lyrics that can make your heart melt. It's a really nice mix of light-hearted, sweet pop songs like Crush, and Touch My Hand, and meatier songs like Desperate, To Be With You, and of course, Angels (the vocals of which just can't be beaten).

It's just an awesome CD, and has definitely become a new favorite. One that I'll be listening to over and over again.

This album doesn't deserve just 5 stars.

This looks like this will be a long review but I just have to put in my two cents. I also don't write reviews often.

Discovering the voice of this young boy (he's my age!) was probably the highlight of my music-finding life, if that makes any sense. I listen to a lot of music, everything from rock to hip-hop and r&b. I also don't consider just any song as 'good.' It takes a lot for me to think this. The music generation right now isn't the greatest. I'm a big fan of the oldies and everything before the 2000's. Yes, that includes Michael Jackson, Queen, the Temptations, even old-school Britney Spears and N'SYNC. I've heard pretty much everything. Unfortunately, music of today pretty much blows. I haven't heard anything THAT original or mind-blowing. Nothing that gave me the desire to buy a CD or a certain song. I also wanted to get away from the electronic music phase every artist is like, basically going through right now. It's just so played out! When am I going to hear something new? Someone who can actually sing? Someone who gives new meaning to good music? Well, guess what? I found that someone to be David Archuleta.

I never heard of David Archuleta until my friend mentioned that he was on American Idol and he was in the top 12 or something (yeah, I know kind of lagging on the updates!). I decided to watch an episode, no luck. It was girls singing night I believe, I have no idea! I don't even watch AI. I decided to watch his performances on YouTube. I was hooked when I heard and saw his rendition of 'Heaven.' That was.. breathtaking. The boy made me tear up! By the time I tried to catch up with David on AI, he had lost to David Cook.

I love pop music and I love great vocalists. Pop music hasn't given me much to love lately, and as for great vocals, well, sometimes I don't think anybody knows what that means anymore. Well thank goodness David Archuleta knows. He's probably the best male pop vocalist in music today. And surprisingly Jive Records hasn't saddled him with a bunch of tracks that overwhelm his brilliant vocal stylings.

Some of the best songs on the album are at the extremes: "Desperate" and "Your Eyes Don't Lie" showcasing a sexier, edgier side with "To Be With You" and "You Can" showcasing Mr. Archuleta's strengths as a romantic balladeer. Yes that's right, this 17 year old unconventionally innocent young man has the true spirit of romance dwelling inside of him.

The typically overproduced hit single "Crush" is exactly what you'd think it's about, but the introspective look at a young man's thoughts as he wonders, hopes, and worries provide some depth to the light summery confection. Not to mention Archuleta's vocal prowess, although the needlessly super-autotuned chorus distracts somewhat from the voice and sentiment. That's not a problem on "To Be With You" which is also exactly what you'd think it's about, and thankfully Mr. Archuleta expresses the sentiment with a maturity far, far beyond his years. "Touch My Hand" is a true delight, with delicately sprinkled falsettos and a soft plea backed by a stunning mixture of mellow guitar and orchestral dance track, all of which combine to make this pretty close to a perfect pop song. "A Little Too Not Over You" and "My Hands" seem like progressions from "Crush", not all that unique, but certainly catchy and enjoyable and highly reminiscent of Chris Brown, if he was from Utah.

A voice to make a grown man cry
LOL! I'm a member of the "married ,middle-aged man Archie club" myself. His voice is just so special and moving. A rare talent.

wow I can't wait for this
I can't wait either! David has such an amazing voice, and he is so gifted not only with his singing but also in his interpretation of the songs he sings.

Way too overprocessed...
No, Tami Kanas, Archuleta's voice doesn't "lack real character" and the smugness of your comment suggests you know that. The "heavy studio effects" you reference aren't about lack of vocal character, but the compulsive use of those techniques that they slap on nearly everybody... Read More

David Archuleta in concert
American Idol Could Come Up With a Fast Bestseller DVD of Just David Archuletta Show and Tour Footage. It would cost nearly nothing to produce and some of the stuff that is out there is truly remarkable.
