Editorial Reviews

Season 7 American Idol winner David Cook will be releasing his sophomore album, This Loud Morning (19 Recordings/RCA Records), on June 28th. Executive produced by Matt Serletic (Rob Thomas, Matchbox Twenty, Collective Soul), This Loud Morning features tracks written and co-written by Cook along with many acclaimed songwriters including, David Hodges, Ryan Tedder, Kevin Griffin and Marti Frederiksen. Says Cook, "This album is the culmination of one of the loftiest endeavors I've ever undertaken. The end result is an album that I cannot wait to share with everyone." Earlier this year Cook recorded the farewell song for the 10th season of American Idol, which can be heard every week this season. The song, chosen by American Idol creator and Executive Producer Simon Fuller, is a remake of Simple Minds 1985 smash “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. After winning the Idol crown in season 7, Cook went on to sell over 1 million copies of his self-titled debut album and set out on a year long nationwide tour in support of his multiple hit singles. Released on November 18th, 2008, David Cook (19 Recordings / RCA Records) entered the Billboard charts at #3 and the digital album charts at #1, marking the best debut from an American Idol winner since 2006. Collectively the songs from David Cook have sold over 2 million tracks and ringtones combined. Cook’s coronation single, “The Time of My Life” was certified platinum and is not only the biggest single debut but the highest selling coronation single in the show’s history.

I am a huge fan of David Cook from Idol and from his first CD release.
Michael Hultquist
I loved EVERY SINGLE TRACK which is very rare for any great album, especially when there were 14 tracks on this album!

The wonderful David Cook is back with an amazing cd that captures the spirit that he posesses to tell a story with his music. The essence of his album is the beautiful Circadian which is the first track of the album and ends with the wonderful Rapid Eye Movement, being the catalyst of the entire dream series. I am in love with every single track on this album. including the 2 bonus tracks. Cook's voice gets better and better with time and possesses a wonderful falsetto.

Each track in between the sandwich is like opening a plethora of brightly coloured gems. I cannot choose a favourite. Each day I change my mind and choose another. I cannot explain how this album has made me feel the movements of each track. In the soft flowing songs like Fade Into Me, (swoonworthy) and Goodbye to the Girl, the staccato movements of the fabulous Time Marches On, the light and the dark, and then the big choruses of Paper Heart and We Believe. Finally there is the lid flickering of Rapid Eye Movement where my lids actually do start flickering in time to the music. This is an amazing concept Cook has planned.

You must experience this wonderful album first hand. Congratulations to Cook and the Anthemics.

I'm also known as "magicalbeck". :)
Greetings to any readers who happen on this. I need to preface my review with this information: I have two and a half decades of experience as a singer, pianist, classical musician, rock musician, vocal coach, musical director/arranger/writer, and as a soprano lead actress in musical theater. (not all at the same time!) I don't give you my resume because I hold myself or my opinion in higher esteem than any music lover. We are all in this together, searching for art that moves us. I just wanted to let you know that my review is from that perspective, to perhaps shine a slightly different light on Cook's most unusual gift. (I review the songs so skip down to them if you like. I realize this is long!)
David is a tenor, but possessor of a stunning instrument that is actually rather rare in rock/pop music. In my opinion he is a dramatic tenor which is a very large voice with a great deal of ring and resonance, that can be pushed to dramatic climaxes more easily than the usual light leggiero voices or warm, bright lyric tenors. Cook's voice has a very dark, rich, beautiful color compared to other tenors. Yet unlike some dramatic tenors, it doesn't sound forced or wobbly; in fact the vibrato is spinning and perfectly free, even while he often adds the rasp. There is nobody I have ever heard do this better. He basically sings perfectly clearly, and raspy, simultaneously! Who does this?!! I know of no one.

If you are musically inclined to records you can pontificate or enjoy small talk over while they are playing in the background, this is perhaps not the one for you. Season 7's Idol champ absolutely cries out for your undivided attention. He told us he was versatile vocally in his first televised audition, and he meant it.

It has been a long wait for Cook's new record. And this wait was well worth it. Leaps and bounds above his first studio record, This Loud Morning takes you on a dreamlike journey through the gestation of a relationship. Still anthemic and big, with bridges that swell massively, the songs feel more raw and more lyrically like Cook. His band was also involved a great deal with the record, and you can tell. There's so much more than driving guitars in this effort and I'm impressed with the way they infused more instrumentation and melodies - especially with the piano, played by his masterful keyboardest, Andy Skib. There are so many highlights - both the opener, Circadian and the closer, Rapid Eye Movement, give you real bang for your buck. But there are some hidden gems, like Goodbye to the Girl, penned with bandmates Skib and Neal Tiemann, and Fade Into Me, that showcase Cook's voice and prove that he can sing a ballad or an anthem. The oddity is his current single, The Last Goodbye, which was clearly chosen as a single due to the Ryan Tedder co-write, but even that has it's fun moments.

I can't stop listening to this record. Cook just keeps getting better.

This is an amazing CD. A cut above DCTR for sure. It has intense emotional lyrics and intriguing instrumentation. This is a MUST buy CD even if you weren't a DC fan before. You will be NOW! Get a good set of earphones and enjoy! I can't stop listening. One of my fav tracks is We Believe. It hit me the first time I heard it. Also love Right Here With You and Hard to Believe. If you have ever had a relationship... This CD will bring up all sorts of memories, good and bad. It is a true experience! GET IT!

I was excited for this album to come out and I was not disappointed! This album is everything that his debut album should have been and more. After hearing his first self produced album "Analog Heart", I was hoping that his first album would have the same feel and it just fell a little short. But, that doesn't mean that I didn't love his first album, I really did!

This album is the first album I've ever heard that grabbed me on the first listen. I loved EVERY SINGLE TRACK which is very rare for any great album, especially when there were 14 tracks on this album! Absolutely no filler on this album. Buy the deluxe edition, you won't regret it!

I was really impatient waiting for this album but now I'm glad it took him this long. A lot of time and effort went into this album and it shows!

This Loud Morning
I cannot wait to receive this album that I pre-ordered. The Walmart soundcheck blew me away. This is an awesome collection of music mastery from Cook and his band. This guy just never stops topping himself.

What are your favorite songs from This Loud Morning and why?
For me the songs Circadian and Rapid Eye Movement are the best on the album although I do love Goodbye To The Girl and Time Marches On as well. This is a fine album all the way through. Besides the 4 songs I mentioned there are many that deserve praise. Fade Into Me the current single is... Read More

The net is jambed-packed with David Cook goodies and must-see's!! Don't be surprised if hardly anyone comments here. For instance, I've taken a short break from streaming TLG video at VEVO, voting for the video at VH1 Countdown, livestreaming his Vietnam concert (another act is opening right now.... Read More
