Album Review

This Loud Morning is a curiously appropriate title for a David Cook album. Unlike so many rockers, Cook makes music not for the dead of night but for the crack of dawn, music that greets the day with a modicum of measured inspiration. This is particularly true of this 2011 sophomore set, an album that sands down any lingering rough edges from his 2008 post-American Idol major-label debut. Strangely enough, these rough edges include not only the faster songs that peppered David Cook but anything resembling a discernable hook. Every cut marches along with a stately purpose and each track is colored with countless guitars, so many that it stands to reason that this album would sound loud, yet it never does. Everything is tempered and deliberate, which isn’t to say it’s insincere: Cook emotes with gusto, never stopping to consider that his singing is lacquered over by all those guitars. So, 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.

Not The Artist I Expected Him To Become

I thought DC would be more in the mold of guitar rock but he is more soft pop than anything. This is a solid effort considering what he has been through with the death of his brother. The tempo of each song is similar and a change of pace would be nice once in awhile but it is what it is. One thing for sure is this guy has great vocals and could sing anything. Maybe next next time out we could hear a little more rock and a little less pop.


Pretty good return for David Cook.

Disappointment Part 2

This is another waste of money that won't do any business on radio. The songs are all the same yet again pumping out insipid love song after insipid love song. The overproduced album doesn't help the weak songs either. There is no room for this kind of short sightedness on his next platter because it will be his last if this one isn't already. David Cook who I really enjoyed on Ido has done two albums back to back of complete drivel. This guy can sing and has some charm but on record he is vanilla and it's the fake vanilla that has a bad after taste.

Time to stop trying to be Barry Manilow, Amy Lee & One Republic and start rocking the boat because he's going nowhere but back to the delete bin.
