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.

Customer Reviews


David's post-Idol debut album was good, but this is a hundred times better. The songs are so much more spectacular! I can't recommend this enough.

This Loud Morning

I've been waiting for this album for so long and i'm so excited to hear it! Being a huge David Cook fan, i had high expectations...and it definately doesn't dissapoint. I Loved his debut album...but this follow up is even better!! i Loved the first single 'The Last Goodbye' so i new the album was going to be good! He has songwriting credits on every song wich always makes an album more interesting and personal. 'This Loud Morning' is amazing, every track is fantastic, making it really hard to choose favourites. However if i was to choose, i really love: 'Paper Heart' 'Time Marches On' 'Take Me As I Am' '4 Letter Word' and 'Goodbye To The Girl', But like i said all the songs are incredible...there's absolutely no need to skip any. Also if you can get your hands on the deluxe edition there's 2 extra tracks 'This Is Not The Last Time' (Which i LOVE) and 'Let Me Fall For You'. It's a real shame more people in the UK don't recognise his talent!! All i can say is it was definately worth the wait and i look forward to his future releases.


The wait is over I'm so excited can't stop listening to the songs x :)
