Daughtry Would Like To Be The One That Carried You (To The Record Store)

Jun 1st, 2009 // 3 Comments

I’d think that Chris Daughtry and his eponymous band would wait at least until the first-week SoundScans of their second album came in before they started casting themselves as Saviors Looming Over The Apocalyptic Yet Kind Of Clean Earth, but I suppose this is an era where one has to strike while the iron–or at least the promotional cycle afforded by appearances on the final episodes of American Idol–is at least a little lukewarm. (Of course, the CCD-indoctrinated part of me hopes that this cover was expressly designed for the purpose of allowing some genius with a lot of time and a computer to Photoshop-remix this with “Footprints.”)

  1. I don’t know which is the lesser of two evils – Daughtry or Footprints. Let’s just burn ‘em all.

  2. For all the talk about this being a “rock” album, this really isn’t helping their case.

  3. I think No Surprises isn’t helping their case that this is a rock album. That thing is a high pitched bore (except for that odd a capella end which is a low pitched mess). Disappointing. And didn’t they say it includes country tunes too?
