3.0 out of 5 stars Good follow up album, 18 July 2009
By 
This review is from: Leave This Town (Audio CD)
It's been quite a while since Daughtry burst onto the scenes, with a fantasic debut album.

Finally with their follow up, it is much of the same strong vocals from Lead singer Chris Daughtry, with songs full of the usual pop/rock swagger.

Nice power balads in 'Life after You' and 'Open Up your Eyes', rocking out with 'You don't Belong' and 'Every time you Turn Around'. And an interesting Country sidestep with 'Tennesee Line'.

It's a sold, strong album, but in my opinion not as good as their first amazing album. Definitely worth a listen though as it's a 'grower'.

I've only listened to the sampler, but from what I can hear, this album seems to have a slightly better mix of harder songs along with some softer tracks than the first one. But... he's ruining his voice. He sounds horrid on "Ghost of Me". Does no one else hear that?

You're right the mix between harder songs and softer ones are good with this album .... Daughtry do sound good on the harder rocking songs, but there isn't the 'standout' songs for me like you had on the first album.

I do agree that Chris' voice can sound strained, almost painful sometimes, something I notice more on this album than the first one. But that's purely my view and I do get how others will love that sound.
