Cant wait for the TOUR and his first album.
Minh T. Nguyen
After a few listens I like it and will have it in rotation with his stuff from idol and his pre-idol albums.

If he can pull off this song, he can sing ANYTHING...and he can!

David Cook .. winner of 2008 American Idol. I wrote CHEESY before I read the story from the songwriter behind the song here: blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=54139274&blogID=423067994

The song is INSPIRATIONAL, and this is the first release from a powerhouse of a voice. Amazon needs to re-add his first solo album, "Analog Heart" here for sale again (it was pulled midway through the Idol competition, apparently the powers that be at Idol thought it was disadvantageous for Cook to have an album for sale; even though they permitted other finalists' albums for sale here {and continue to do so}). We will hear much, much more from this young man. What a powerful versatile, edgy voice!

Except for the phrase "magic rainbows" in The Time of My Life, the lyrics and sentiment of this song are great. DC really is having the time of his life right now and he deserves it. This sound showcases the best of his vocal abilities: sometimes gentle, sometimes rough, with soaring high notes at the end. Don't worry DC can rock, go check out his previous albums with Axium and his solo effort, Analog Heart. His upcoming album will be huge. No doubt about it. It just killing me to have to wait for it.

I'm not a big fan of AI coronation songs, but this one has gotten into my head and I can't stop listening to it. It reminds me a little of Lifehouse's "You and Me" (or at least I keep mentally segueing from one to the other, which usually means they have something in common in terms of the melody). So, no, this is not my usual taste, but David Cook is an original and he can make even a coronation song sound fresh and moving. I have no doubt that his music after AI will sound less poppy, but I still think this is a decent debut.

When you look at the lyrics themselves, this song is absolutely cheese filled. I wouldn't necessarily like the song itself; however, David Cook shows that he's a true craftsman with his music. He took as song he had to sing and gave it his own indy rock flair. I can listen to this song over and over again and not be phased by it's "magic rainbows."

David Cook spins this required song for the AI winner his own way to make what was originally pure cheese into something...less cheesy. After a few listens I like it and will have it in rotation with his stuff from idol and his pre-idol albums.

I am really excited to see what David will do for his next album. With his song writing/arranging skills and ability to deliver a song combined with the resources now at his disposal...I think he will create something awesome! I can't wait!

Yes this song is cheesy, but it's appropriate for the "moment". Plus, it's not his song per-se. It's the winning song that's chosen by the producers of A.I. He's gotta walk their line for now, and then we'll see the real David Cook a little later.
Anyone who was lucky enough to buy Analog Heart before it vanished (me), has already heard his true potential. His stuff with Axium isn't bad either. He's not Daughtry-esque at all. In fact these two would make an excellent double bill for a concert.
Anyway, Analog Heart, which is D.C.'s freshman solo album from 2006 is a superb, indie album. Problem is, I don't think anybody outside of Tulsa heard it prior to American Idol. If his RCA album is half as good as Analog Heart, he'll be around for a while.

Dream Big should have been the Idol coronation song, but Cook put as much of his style into this song as he could, magic rainbows and all. It's actually a fairly uplifting song, and still gets to me as I think about his win on the finale. Compared to other coronation songs, it's the best since Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This".

However, I don't believe the song is at all representative of what to expect from Cook in the future. For those of you who missed out on Analog Heart before it was pulled, that album was all sorts of brilliant.

Even when he is singing about "magic rainbows", David Cook can sell any song. He has beautiful tone and range, and even if this coronation song is not representative of his style and ability (and it's not), he still manages to invest enough of himslef in it that the song simply WORKS.
Hopefully RCA will let him have creative freedom with his album, and do the fans a favor by re-releasing Analog Heart, his indie record from 2006.
