Album Review: Daughtry’s Break The Spell

Thanks to one of my Twitter friends Autumn for tweeting she was going to buy the Daughtry album after she got out of school today. After that I looked it up on Spotify and ademptted to listen to it. After two episodes of Ridiculousness I switched it off and listened to the album fully. There’s a more mellow tone compared to Nickelback’s album. In there’s it was big and hardcore. Daughtry’s first single from the album, is like the song of the whole thing. Every song is slow and mellow. Doesn’t really get loud.

Out of the whole album, my favorites were “Outta My Head,” “Gone Too Soon” and “Lullaby.” I’ve got to say “Gone Too Soon” is pretty much the saddest song I’ve ever heard in my entire life. The title could give away what’s about. Good thing I braced myself beforehand. By the last few before it ended just seemed like dragging on and on. I’m a Daughtry fan and I just wanted it to end. It sounds harsh I know, but not every review I do has to have a happy ending.

I’ve got to say after those songs ended and I heard an acoustic guitar play and Chris’ voice sing this sweet song I almost started crying to that one too. It was called, “Lullaby” and you know it was written for those little ones he’s got now. What I found so weird about it was both Daughtry and Nickelback had songs titled “Lullaby” and both were so different on music wise. How they were written were similar, but I’ve got to admit Daughtry’s was too adorable to ignore. I liked Nickelback’s sound to their’s though. If you like mellow albums, this might be a winner for you.

Album Review: Nickelback’s Here And Now

So today is the release of Nickelback’s new ablum “Here And Now” and I’ve actually looked forwarded to this album a lot more than their other ones. My parents love their music and I’m a fan too, just not like them. After listening to this one though, I think I can say I love them and feel happy about it. When Sirius XM Octane started playing “When We Stand Together” and “Bottoms Up” I could feel myself getting hooked fast already. I expected to not like every song, because there’s not too many rock albums that I can listen to from start to finish. This, I can add to that list. Even though I might have a few songs on repeat.

I know I’m already addicted to “Lullaby” because of how it starts. It starts with a piano, and it’s so much different. Now since I have never listened to their past albums from beginning to end, I could be wrong. I’ve never heard them not start off with a guitar before this song. It’s kind of a surprise. I definitely think it’s a four and a half star album. I just wish they had more than 11 songs.

My mom and sister watched the American Music Awards, and mom’s got a crush on the bass player and drummer. She literally asked me after the commerical come on and said, “did you see the bass guitarist and drummer?” She’s a nut. I’m a Chad fan, he’s just too good looking to ignore. I hope they come to Indiana when they go on tour. I think my parents and I would fun seeing them live. If you’re a Nickelback hater reading, don’t you dare post a comment. It will be deleted for sure. Hell, if you’re a hater, maybe this album will change your mind for good. It’s seriously the best album of the year. Best rock album at least.
