chris daughtry has an excellent voice but that only gets you so far...i am sick of hearing this same type of song over and over from them...i would like to hear a little variation maybe? they will keep on making the same album over and over again and continue to remain blahhhh

Few surprises found on Daughtry's new track

After releasing their debut back in 2006, Chris Daughtry and the boys from Daughtry make their presence known at radio with “No Surprise,” a mid-tempo earworm that will surely be the perfect catalyst to usher in the band’s sophomore effort. “Surprise” kicks off with Chris’ distinct vocals following a brief instrumental intro and quickly turns into a catchy chorus that sounds very similar to the material that can be found on the band’s debut. It was written by Chris along with Chad Kroeger from Nickelback in addition to Eric Dill and Rune Westberg. Kroeger’s influence on the lyrics can be heard clearly, which is a plus and minus at the same time because the stigma that Daughtry is “Nickelback-lite” will be a little more difficult to shake. This basically means there is not much new to band’s sound, but that’s just how it should be, as this sound is its strong suit. The strongest part of the song comes at the bridge when Chris really lets loose (“our favorite place we used to go / the warm embrace that no one knows”) and then the short verse that follows it gives the song a more unique sound. It’s true, however, that “Surprise” can be accused of being formulaic, but that won’t hurt its chances as a starter track. Still, “No Surprise” is just the kind of song radio is in need of at the present, and there’s not a better band to bring this sound back to the forefront than Daughtry.


This is an amazing song! I heard it on the radio earlier and absolutley fell in love. Great song. Not sure its worth the 1.29 though. I can get it some where else for cheaper.

Building on his start as one of the most popular finalists of American Idol's fifth season, Chris Daughtry's post-Idol career spanned the archetypal modern rock of his early albums to the folk- and dance-tinged territory of 2010s albums such as Baptized. Where Bo Bice proved that American Idol could have a rocker as a finalist, Chris Daughtry proved that the show could generate a successful rocker outside the context of the show. Of course, it helped that he was the polar opposite of Bice, a shaggy...
