Everybody’s got a drug dealer on speed dial

Nickelback: All The Right Reasons One of my favorite new (to me) albums is Nickelback’s All The Right Reasons. I listened to it on repeat all day at work today. Every song on this album is good, even the slow songs which I’m not often fond of. If they played popular music on 24, Far Away would be the perfect song for when Jack finally sees Audrey again after 20 months apart. My favorite song on the album, besides Savin’ Me, is probably the most off-beat: Rockstar. You definitely have to pay attention to the lyrics on that one, but it’s so catchy.

Daughtry The most anticipated release was American Idol’s Chris Daughtry’s self-titled album. Unfortunately I found it rather disappointing. While the album is good enough that you can turn it on and leave it, there’s not much on it to get me excited except the first track (and single), It’s Not Over. That song is so good that everything else just pales in comparison. Tracks #7 and #10 are pretty good, but there are too many slow songs. Plus he sounds too much like Three Doors Down meets Godsmack; and while I like both bands, I was hoping for something more unique. I also find it hard to really get into any artist who does nothing more than sing. Sure, that’s a talent in its own right, but to me a band should be able to write their own material and play instruments.

    How funny, I just wrote last night that Scott and I both liked the Daughtry CD. And, interestingly enough, we think he sounds VERY similar to Nickleback, so I’m surprised you didn’t like him as much.
