    This Loud Morning is a mediocre record from David Cook. Sounds like a typical mainstream radio rock album. There is nothing that distinguishes David Cook's music from all of the other mainstream rock bands. The whole album lacks originality. Sounds like Chris Cornell meets Nickelback. What's worse is David Cook didn't even write a single song. I guess that makes a manufactured pop starThis Loud Morning is a mediocre record from David Cook.

Sounds like Chris Cornell meets Nickelback. What's worse is David Cook didn't even write a single song. I guess that makes a manufactured pop star just like all the other American Idol Winners.

    This Loud Morning was (for me) a 50/50 kind of album. As hit and miss as it is, each song is very well produced and well performed but highly cliche at times. Also Cook co-wrote every song on the album, contrary to what was said by "m2msucks".

    The Last Goodbye, Time Marches On, Paper Heart and Goodbye to the Girl are the songs that really make this album. Even though it has a couple

    The Last Goodbye, Time Marches On, Paper Heart and Goodbye to the Girl are the songs that really make this album. Even though it has a couple skip-able tracks, This Loud Morning is another decent offering from Cook and his band, his incredible voice combined with the production skills of Matt Serletic make for an entertaining listen. See for yourself. 6/10.

    This Loud Morning offers an irresistible balance of pop and rock to satisfy existing fans and entice new ones to Cook's musical camp, especially those oblivious to Cook's season seven Idol win.

    This Loud Morning winds up as an album that's primarily textural mood music for the morning, and one that's not all that loud either.

    Cook must think the greatest era of rock history was between 1995 and 1999, when bands like Better Than Ezra and Our Lady Peace pumped alt radio full of post-grunge jangle. Both of those bands' frontmen have co-writing credits on the former Idol victor's second album, This Loud Morning.
