Editorial Reviews

2009 sophomore album from the million-selling former American Idol contestant, the follow-up to his massively successful 2006 debut album. Daughtry achieved global success with its self-titled debut, the biggest selling artist release of the past two years and the fastest selling Rock debut in SoundScan history. Daughtry spent most of the last two years on the road performing to sold- out arenas and opening for Bon Jovi and Nickelback in 2008.

As much as I like "No Surprise", the sizzling, energetic first single off Daughtry's Leave This Town (the follow-up to their multi-platinum self-titled debut), I'm even more impressed with the quality of the rest of the songs. Creative and original (especially considering this is mainstream pop/rock), this collection eliminates much of the 'cookie-cutter' nature that I felt many of those songs had while retaining hook-laden melodies that made it so successful commercially.

Dubbed by Chris as "a very big rock album", this sophomore effort starts that way with "You Don't Belong", a heavy rocker filled with '80's-inspired guitar riffs and power chords. Rather than using studio musicians as the debut did, Chris' bandmates recorded the musical tracks, and that's one of this album's major highlights and improvements. The almost not-stop touring allowed the band to develop chemistry, and the resulting cohesiveness shows through on the recording, giving this album a more loose, 'live' feel.

"Every Time You Turn Around" keeps the rock edge going...the band members were given latitude to "throw things in on the fly"...an extra solo line here, an extra cymbal crash there, and this song is a good example of that. "Life After You" finally slows things down a bit, but that's not a bad thing on this record. The string of mid-tempo or slower songs that dominate the rest of the album are not contrived or 'manufactured'-sounding...in fact, Chris' weathered voice bleeds passion and sincerity combined with his relatable relationship-themed lyrics. The production allows 'holes' to open up for the vocal(s) to be heard clearly.

Chris Daughtry and company return almost three years later to follow up on the release of 2006's multiplatinum self-titled debut which went on to be the highest selling album of 2007. After writing and recording his debut album while on the American Idol tour with session musicians, Daughtry, the band, comes together seamlessly on this radio-friendly follow-up. The album plays out as such.

1. You Don't Belong To Me- 8/10
The heaviest of rock songs on the album. For those who enjoyed Chris' harder tracks on the first release, this will be a song you enjoy.

2. No Surprise- 8/10
The first single off the album (and co-written by Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger), this tune is pop-rock in its finest form. The soaring bridge is the definite highlight of this track.

3. Every Time You Turn Around- 8/10
A midtempo rocker with a solid beat, this song builds up nicely to a catchy chorus. This one definitely has single potential.

4. Life After You- 9/10
The first true ballad on the album, Daughtry's raw emotion comes to the forefront in the vocals on this track. Very heartfelt, and very catchy, this song is a surefire single.

5. What I Meant To Say- 7/10
A rocking song with a soaring chorus and powerful vocal delivery.

6. Open Up Your Eyes- 9/10
A midtempo track with solid lyrics and an emotionally driven delivery.

7. September- 10/10
An amazingly crafted acoustic gem that breaks into a midtempo rock song. Daughtry is able to show off his vocal chops on this one. This track builds throughout, leading to a huge payoff at the end. Best song on the album.

8. Ghost Of Me- 8/10
An uptempo rock song with a soaring chorus that utilizes solid backing vocals and searing guitar riffs.

This tops Daughtry's first album! He says himself that they had ample time to work on "Leave This Town" which wasn't the case with "Daughtry", pressured by the powers that be to release it quickly. Although Daughtry has had a number of top singles from their first album I believe "Leave This Town" will produce even more. The first single release, "No Surprise" is a great, catchy tune! Other songs on this album will follow quickly on the airwaves and will easily make the top 20. Buy it!!!

Daughtry's Second Album is just as great as his first. The collaborative effort with Chad Kroeger from Nickelback makes the first single "No Surprise" one of the best songs of the collection. Chris Daughtry's brilliance in song writing and delivering the message helps bring this star to the forefront of rock. However, he also shows his craftiness to sing ballads, like "Call your name" and the duet with Vince Gill, "Tennessee Line".

His unique style, with a little more creative freedom in this work, will make any Daughtry fan happy to purchase this album.

You will not be disappointed.

Okay; so I'll be the one to ride the middle of the road here along with one other reviewer so far. I'll give this album the same rating as I did his debut. I just don't see this as a five star outing, but that's my opinion. For those of you on the Daughtry bandwagon then you'll give this sophomore effort nothing less. I like Daughtry and I think he has a great voice and I was really expecting him to break out and do something different on his second release since he had more control to do what he wanted. Yeah, I know, as one reviewer said, if it ain't broken don't fix it. But what's wrong with thinking out of the box, being edgy and getting out of that comfort zone to make a really great album. Overall, the album is good and each song is a catchy song if that's what you like. But, to be honest, each song sounds like the leftover's from his debut album that never made the cut. I'm not saying I don't like this as I have it in my mix, but I think he could have done so much more than just playing it safe and keeping it pretty generic and like his first album. I know, it's the record business and this sells, but I was looking for more originality on this release as compared to the first release with the record company more in control. I don't have any favorites here yet although the opening track does open up great so I thought I was in for a nice surprise, but then track two opened up and it really wasn't a surprise any longer. No offense to any die hard Daughtry fan out there, but I was just expecting better. I won't repeat step by step each song as other reviewer's already have done that. With all that said, if you like Daughtry's first release then you'll be sure to love this release without even leaving your town.Read more ›

whole album preview of Leave This Town
Ive listened to big chunks of several of the songs and this cd is a huge improvement. Several of the songs hint at relationship problems. I hope stardom hasnt injured his marriage. The songwriting still seems to focus a tad too much on relationship issues, but the songwriting seems to have more... Read More

Found 2 errors in the recording of the cd
I just took a listen to those two tracks. I noticed the blip in track 5 more so than track 6.

I saw the link. Is it just me, or would it be nice for Chris to cut out the macho posing for the cameras. Lighten up Chris.
