  • Summary: Teen pop star and American Idol runner-up, David Archuleta is growing up as a performer with his second album, released just before his 20th birthday.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 2
  2. Negative: 0 out of 2
  1. His vocals still gleam with so much dewy naivete that the music never succumbs to the bitterness it seems to circle. Maybe state-fair meet-and-greets are what the kid was born to do?
  2. This is a middle-of-the-road pop album pure and simple, arriving perhaps two years too late but it nevertheless proves that Archuleta has the chops to fill the space between commercials on the airwaves.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 16 out of 18

It is amazing. David voice is just like WOW!!! Every song is a hit --- it's so hard to even try to pick a favorite. David has grown so much musically and is such a talented singer/songwriter. It was great for David to have 10 of the songs on the album that he actually helped write. Check it out if you haven't already -- it's REALLY good! Actually it's GREAT! Expand

    His debut album is FAR superior to this. The lyrics are corny and childish. The production is extremely basic and bland. The only thingHis debut album is FAR superior to this. The lyrics are corny and childish. The production is extremely basic and bland. The only thing impressive about this album, for the most part are his vocals. This album is boring, uninspired & it lacks depth. Expand
