EDITORS’ NOTES

It’s Not Over… the Hits So Far charts Chris Daughtry’s rise to stardom following his 2006 appearance on American Idol and up through 2013’s Baptized. In that stretch, the frontman cultivated a distinctive brand of pop-rock that veers between grungy heaviness and Nashville-tinged ballads. Where “It’s Not Over” is shot through with brooding intensity, “September” is a passionate look at bygone days that oozes vulnerability. “Go Down,” one of the collection’s two exclusive cuts, is an utterly bold and infectious piece of EDM-infused dance rock.

A return to form…nope

This song is so much better than anything from their previous album. Daughtry, to me, is a band that has really fallen from grace. Their self-titled debut album was good. Their Sophomore effort, LEAVE THIS TOWN, was very good. Their third album, BREAK THE SPELL, was great. I was very excited for their fourth album, BAPTIZED but ultimately ended up very disappointed. It was as if the band sold its rock roots in order to be more mainstream. In result, what came out of the album seemed pop and fake. Not to mention the album seemed more like a Chris Daughtry solo album (considering the band had nearly nothing to do with the making of the record) rather than a Daughtry band album. When I first heard about this song I was skeptic. I didn’t want to invest in another pop driven, money-grabbing, mainstream record. When I saw that Dave Bassett was a co-writer of this song I allowed my hopes to get up, which was probably a mistake. I like Dave’s work with Shinedown and I was hoping that this would be a return to the band’s roots. Unfortunately, it is not. “Torches” is still a lot better than anything on BAPTIZED, but I still doesn’t touch any of the material on DAUGHTRY, LEAVE THIS TOWN, or BREAK THE SPELL. I hate to say that I’m disappointed, but I am. It’s a decent song, but not the rocker I was looking for.

I'll give the song 3 stars…one more star than I am willing to give the BAPTIZED record.

Must Buy

Daughtry has been a constant, consistent great rock band. From idol to their first debut album. His Greatest Hits album is simply amazing and Torches is 🔥🔥 Spread the word of this Olympic Song!
