Daughtry, Daughtry, DAUGHTRY!

“A menacing metal vibe runs through “There and Back Again” and “What I Want,” the latter featuring a cameo from Slash. But mostly the disc sounds like overproduced Nickelback, something we definitely don’t need.” (Grade: C) —The Boston Herald
(and this from a paper that constantly raked Taylor over the coals to make room for their rawk god. Ouch.)

“If the goal was to establish a niche within the narrower accessible hard-rock realm of Nickelback, Staind, Hinder, Seether, Fuel, Shinedown or 3 Doors Down, well, overall, he succeeded. But he still hasn’t come up with the distinctive, career-making Kryptonite or Broken or How You Remind Me that will stand out in the crowd. I’m surprised by how commercial he was apparently aiming to make the album sound; now let’s see if it actually is commercial.”USA Today

“‘Daughtry’ falls in line with discs by 3 Doors Down and Nickelback, but with Daughtry’s strong vocals (especially on “Breakdown”), versatile guitar sounds and strong melodies, his group already surpasses the latter.” (Three stars)The Charlotte Observer

Not a CD review, but Valleywag, website of the technorati, gives us this little blurb regarding Yahoo!’s Christmas party:

“You’d have thought that, if an internet company spent a billion dollars trying to make it in Hollywood, there would be at least one perk: a decent entertainer at the corporate Christmas party. In previous years, Yahoo’s booked cool bands like Flaming Lips and Ozomatli. The star attraction this year, at Yahoo’s December 9th shindig at the San Mateo Expo Center? Baldie singer Chris Daughtry, who crashed out of this year’s American Idol in fourth place. It’s a terrible disappointment, says a disgruntled Yahoo.”

Well, to be fair, this is probably less a knock on Daughtry personally and more a down-the-nose gripe at the entire Idol franchise.

    These factors mold and manipulate the shape and cross-section’the structure’of the jet stream.
    Negative air filtration units and containment barriers must be utilized to prevent the spread of these spores.
    Chlorine is a powerful whitener and disinfectant,
    but can cause negative health effects in people, plants, and animals.

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
