What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Daughtry / Daughtry
Daughtry I have never seen an episode of American Idol, which will either give me tremendous credibility as a music reviewer or demonstrate that I in fact deserve none at all. My own opinion of the show, which derives largely from what I read on blogs and see in the carefully selected clips that appear on The Soup, which I do watch regularly, is therefore as uninformed as it is heartfelt. I'm not into reality TV, whether because it reflects reality too well or not at all I'll lead you to decide. Suffice it to say that I don't enjoy embarrassment, whether mine own or somebody else's. It's like fingernails on the blackboard of my soul.

I mention all this to explain why I've never before reviewed anything by an Idol contestant, at least not knowingly. I'm coming at this second release by Chris Daughtry (actually by a band called Daughtry fronted by Daughtry) knowing nothing more than what I learned from the review on the iTunes Store: that he's humorless, takes himself way too seriously and approaches every song in pretty much the same all-out style. Come to think of it, that's a pretty good description of me.
