|Live Like We're Dying|
|Sometimes we fall down, can't get back up We're hiding behind skin that's too tough How come we don't say I love you enough? 'Til it's to late, it's...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
The surprising and effective acoustic arrangement of West's song demonstrated that Allen has some genuine interpretive skill, but the studio version here layers on a heavy-handed drum machine that sounds like Phil Collins's "In the Air Tonight" and pulls focus from Allen's performance. It's just one of the miscalculations that makes Kris Allen yet another lackluster, characterless Idol debut.

The songs are Exceptional post-Idol album--quite possibly one of or THE pinnacle(s) of any Idol alum's first attempt while on tour. The songs are melodic, catchy, enjoyable...and they LACK cheese! It's...well, a time for miracles. Mwahahah. Kris Allen was a worthy winner. But not only that, he's shown such growth from his first, indie album, "Brand New Shoes". I'm not sure why the critics are so hard on him, because he doesn't deserve it whatsoever. (Probably slanted and biased. I also think the calculations are askew.) Check out songs like: "Can't Stay Away", "Before We Come Undone", "Written All Over My Face", "The Truth", "Alright With Me", and of course, "Live Like We're Dying". Any of those are enjoyable singles, but several others are quality choices as well. Enjoy!… Expand
JKDec 7, 2009I love this album! The songs are all really catchy, and there isn't a single track that I don't like. I especially like Before We I love this album! The songs are all really catchy, and there isn't a single track that I don't like. I especially like Before We Come Undone, Let it Rain, and Red Guitar. I think Kris did a great job on this album. Looking forward to seeing him in concert once he goes on tour!… Expand
LMNov 29, 2009I like Kris Allen but he just swimming in bland music on this album. Acoustic Heartless would have been better than the poppy version on this album.
LarCDec 7, 2009Overproduced!!! This album is not Kris's style at all. He shines with simple acoustic accompaniment. Anything else upstages him.
