BlAke takes you iNto his Audio DAy Dream and succeeds!!


Jordin's album turned out nice and is a solid debut but failed on the charts. I think Blake's luck will be diffrent. The wait was deff worth it and I'm happy to say Blake has pulled it off. His first single "Break Anotha" is just a glimpse of where the album is going to take you. Blake said he wanted an album that was like a continuous 80's mix tape with diffrent influences. He did that and more Blake mixes everything from hip-hop/electronic/pop and the list goes on. I'm also impressed to see that he had creative control co-writing almost every track on the album except "Surrender". He may not have the best voice but Blake knows how to use it well and explodes with personality and uniqueness on this debut. This is one album you need to BUY!!

KEY TRACKS: Break Anotha, Know My Name, Without You, She's Makin Me Lose It, End of The World, and 1000 Miles.

The Title is Exactly RIGHT!


The previews of the songs don't do this album justice! The songs and interludes fit together seamlessly, the variety of genres is stunning, and the different elements are all fantastic. Blake's voice is superb, as are the instrumentals and beatboxing. This album is a MUST HAVE!



Blakey, you ROCK! This is such an overall AMAZING CD! It's so well put together! Awesome lyrics, sick beats, and fluid tunes make this CD one heck of a debut...definitely gives Chris Daughtry a run for his money as "best Idol debut"...and that's truly saying something because DAUGHTRY is the best rock album out there currently! I'm so proud of Blake, to say the least! "Here's My Hello" is going to be a massive hit! You mark my words! :) The interluding in between is so creative...truly is like the 80s mix-tape throwback that he wanted it to be...it's like a blast from his past with modernity written all over it...2080s as we both like to call it ;D

Watch out world, Blake Lewis is going to be "breakin' anotha" record sales figure with this hit CD...let's all take a trip into his Audio Daydream...

Blake, I love you...stay RAD!


About Blake Lewis

Best known as the beatboxing contestant on season six of American Idol, Blake Lewis hails from Bothell, Washington. Lewis comes from a musical family -- his mother used to be in a rock band and continues to sing and play guitar -- and began singing himself at age five. He impressed Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell, and Paula Abdul at the Seattle auditions with his beatboxing and performance of Seal's "Crazy," and further wowed them at Hollywood week, where he performed with fellow contestants Rudy Cardenas and Chris Sligh. Performances of songs like Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" and Jamiroquai's "Virtual Insanity" reflected his hip musical tastes; some of Lewis' other favorite artists include Björk, Imogen Heap, 311, and Gnarls Barkley. His distinctive style won him early fan support, including a voting bloc calling themselves "the Blaker Girls," and Lewis ultimately emerged as the season's runner-up.

While completing the subsequent American Idol tour that summer, he spent most of his evenings focusing on his full-length studio debut, co-writing 12 of the album's 13 tracks and collaborating with such producers as OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder. Audio Day Dream dropped in December 2007, buoyed by the leadoff single "Break Anotha." Audio Day Dream failed to gain much of an audience and Lewis parted ways with Arista in the summer of 2008. Just over a year later, he reappeared on Tommy Boy Records with Heartbreak on Vinyl. The album peaked at 135 on the Billboard 200 and Lewis was left without a record contract for a couple years. He resurfaced in 2013 on Republic Records with Portrait of a Chameleon, a spring release preceded by the single "Your Touch," which was featured in commercials for Microsoft Internet Explorer 10. ~ Heather Phares
