My daughter is 13 and HATES my taste in music. This CD is the exception; I played it a few times when she was in the car and it vanished....it is now on loop on her ipod. This album is fantastic I can listen to it over and over. This guy is such a talent and I now see the point in 'Idol'. I like this much better than his other album. Both are good but I just love this one. I so hope he brings out a new CD soon. It is easy listening rock and falls into an area where people who like hard rock wont find it too soft to bother with, and easy listening fans will love the emotion and 'story' to the songs. He has a very uniue voice and the songs almost have a country feel to them. It is hard to pin this album down to a genre, it is just too unique.

Songwriting, Performance Both Improved On Leave This Town July 14 2009
By HuskerDog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As much as I like "No Surprise", the sizzling, energetic first single off Daughtry's Leave This Town (the follow-up to their multi-platinum self-titled debut), I'm even more impressed with the quality of the rest of the songs. Creative and original (especially considering this is mainstream pop/rock), this collection eliminates much of the 'cookie-cutter' nature that I felt many of those songs had while retaining hook-laden melodies that made it so successful commercially.

Dubbed by Chris as "a very big rock album", this sophomore effort starts that way with "You Don't Belong", a heavy rocker filled with '80's-inspired guitar riffs and power chords. Rather than using studio musicians as the debut did, Chris' bandmates recorded the musical tracks, and that's one of this album's major highlights and improvements. The almost not-stop touring allowed the band to develop chemistry, and the resulting cohesiveness shows through on the recording, giving this album a more loose, 'live' feel.

"Every Time You Turn Around" keeps the rock edge going...the band members were given latitude to "throw things in on the fly"...an extra solo line here, an extra cymbal crash there, and this song is a good example of that. "Life After You" finally slows things down a bit, but that's not a bad thing on this record. The string of mid-tempo or slower songs that dominate the rest of the album are not contrived or 'manufactured'-sounding...in fact, Chris' weathered voice bleeds passion and sincerity combined with his relatable relationship-themed lyrics. The production allows 'holes' to open up for the vocal(s) to be heard clearly.

Chris (collaborating with some of his rock 'buddies' and producers, including Nickelback's Chad Kroeger on two songs) seems to have honed his songwriting skills further...his almost innate ability to craft melodies and write lyrics from the heart continues to grab you and reel you in, without 'recycling' too much from the first record. Two songs in particular stand out for me... "September", a heartfelt ballad about growing up in the summertime in his small, North Carolina hometown but having to leave things behind to move forward, and "Tennessee Line", a country-flavored tune (fiddles and all) featuring country legend Vince Gill on background vocals. Unique and captivating, these gems are refreshing to hear while staying within the confines of the basic formula for Daughtry's success.
While returning producer Howard Benson throws in a few extra production tricks here and there, he manages to keep the sound fairly natural and the enhancements aren't too overdone.

The bottom line: Great songs, solid performance, and an overall stronger rock attitude. I'm not sure if the changes would be enough to win over those who didn't like Daughtry before, but if you did enjoy Daughtry Part 1, the sequel isn't likely to disappoint.

Daughtry Returns Strong with Sophomore Effort July 14 2009
By Michael Yovkovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Chris Daughtry and company return almost three years later to follow up on the release of 2006's multiplatinum self-titled debut which went on to be the highest selling album of 2007. After writing and recording his debut album while on the American Idol tour with session musicians, Daughtry, the band, comes together seamlessly on this radio-friendly follow-up. The album plays out as such.

1. You Don't Belong To Me- 8/10
The heaviest of rock songs on the album. For those who enjoyed Chris' harder tracks on the first release, this will be a song you enjoy.

2. No Surprise- 8/10
The first single off the album (and co-written by Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger), this tune is pop-rock in its finest form. The soaring bridge is the definite highlight of this track.

3. Every Time You Turn Around- 8/10
A midtempo rocker with a solid beat, this song builds up nicely to a catchy chorus. This one definitely has single potential.

4. Life After You- 9/10
The first true ballad on the album, Daughtry's raw emotion comes to the forefront in the vocals on this track. Very heartfelt, and very catchy, this song is a surefire single.

5. What I Meant To Say- 7/10
A rocking song with a soaring chorus and powerful vocal delivery.

6. Open Up Your Eyes- 9/10
A midtempo track with solid lyrics and an emotionally driven delivery.

7. September- 10/10
An amazingly crafted acoustic gem that breaks into a midtempo rock song. Daughtry is able to show off his vocal chops on this one. This track builds throughout, leading to a huge payoff at the end. Best song on the album.

8. Ghost Of Me- 8/10
An uptempo rock song with a soaring chorus that utilizes solid backing vocals and searing guitar riffs.

9. Learn My Lesson- 7/10
A solid midtepmo song that doesn't quite deliver as much as the other ballads on the album.

10. Supernatural- 9/10
An extremely uptempo rocking track that utilizes driving guitar riffs to create an almost manic effect throughout.

11. Tennessee Line- 9/10
One of the slower paced songs on the album, this track toes the line between rock and country while never quite crossing it. An emotional ballad with excellent backing vocals, a string section, and a beautiful steel guitar ringing throughout, this is a standout on the album.

12. Call Your Name- 9/10
This haunting acoustic track is a solid way to close out the album. One of the more emotional tracks on the album, Daughtry is at his best on this tune.

If it isn't broken, why try to fix it? Daughtry doesn't produce anything earth shatteringly original with this new offering, but they do succeed immensely in crafting 12 songs that are sure to please the millions of fans who purchased their debut album. Their latest effort is chalk-full of catchy tunes that will be sure to keep Daughtry blasting away on every mainstream radio station for the next few years.

Daughtry rocks!! Aug. 6 2009
By M. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This tops Daughtry's first album! He says himself that they had ample time to work on "Leave This Town" which wasn't the case with "Daughtry", pressured by the powers that be to release it quickly. Although Daughtry has had a number of top singles from their first album I believe "Leave This Town" will produce even more. The first single release, "No Surprise" is a great, catchy tune! Other songs on this album will follow quickly on the airwaves and will easily make the top 20. Buy it!!!

Daughtry Does it Again July 23 2009
By Eagle Vision - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Daughtry's Second Album is just as great as his first. The collaborative effort with Chad Kroeger from Nickelback makes the first single "No Surprise" one of the best songs of the collection. Chris Daughtry's brilliance in song writing and delivering the message helps bring this star to the forefront of rock. However, he also shows his craftiness to sing ballads, like "Call your name" and the duet with Vince Gill, "Tennessee Line".

His unique style, with a little more creative freedom in this work, will make any Daughtry fan happy to purchase this album.

You will not be disappointed.

Love it or Leave It July 14 2009
By Glenn O. Kirms - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Okay; so I'll be the one to ride the middle of the road here along with one other reviewer so far. I'll give this album the same rating as I did his debut. I just don't see this as a five star outing, but that's my opinion. For those of you on the Daughtry bandwagon then you'll give this sophomore effort nothing less. I like Daughtry and I think he has a great voice and I was really expecting him to break out and do something different on his second release since he had more control to do what he wanted. Yeah, I know, as one reviewer said, if it ain't broken don't fix it. But what's wrong with thinking out of the box, being edgy and getting out of that comfort zone to make a really great album. Overall, the album is good and each song is a catchy song if that's what you like. But, to be honest, each song sounds like the leftover's from his debut album that never made the cut. I'm not saying I don't like this as I have it in my mix, but I think he could have done so much more than just playing it safe and keeping it pretty generic and like his first album. I know, it's the record business and this sells, but I was looking for more originality on this release as compared to the first release with the record company more in control. I don't have any favorites here yet although the opening track does open up great so I thought I was in for a nice surprise, but then track two opened up and it really wasn't a surprise any longer. No offense to any die hard Daughtry fan out there, but I was just expecting better. I won't repeat step by step each song as other reviewer's already have done that. With all that said, if you like Daughtry's first release then you'll be sure to love this release without even leaving your town.

On a side note: pick up the two bonus tracks ("On the Inside" & "What We Have Become") on I Tunes to complete this album. And then try to find the other bonus tracks that are out there: an acoustic version remake of "Pokerface", "Traffic Light", "One Last Chance", "Get Me Through", "Long Way" & don't forget the great rendition of Foreigner's classic hit "Feels Like the First Time".

On a second side note: the bonus tracks, if you can get them, are actually the best tracks from the album that didn't make it to the album. Go figure. The more I listen to this album the more I feel that Daughtry has sold out his hard rock edge and given in to cheesy top 40 pop rock. Now, I'm starting to select the few tracks I do like to keep in my mix and there won't be as many as from his debut. Hopefully, on his third release, if it happens down the road, he brings it all out and stays away from the sappy stuff that is found on this album. Still three stars even if you don't agree with me here as many of you won't that rated it at five stars.
