Daughtry Releases “Break The Spell” And Gets Rave Reviews

November 22, 2011 07:57 AM by Lisa Princ

Daughtry fans are rejoicing, as the band released their third album, Break The Spell yesterday, and it is already getting rave reviews. Some are comparing it to the likes of Bon Jovi, and others say this could be the American Idol alum’s best album yet! Read on for more details!

If you have not purchased Daughtry’s new album, Break The Spell yet, you may want to head out to the store. Critics and fans alike are praising the third album by the rock band. While it is being compared to a Bon Jovi like sound, Break The Spell has fan calling this album “amazing,” while critics are saying that this could be Daughtry’s best album yet.

The Washington post writes: “Break the Spell, his third and possibly best disc, isn’t embarrassed to try a little bit of everything.” They go on to say that Daughtry should not be compared to Bon Jovi since they are outselling Bon Jovi at this point.

USA Today adds: “Break the Spell doesn’t break the Daughtry mold, but it does find the group stretching out a bit. The earnest, angst-ridden rockers are still there, in the title track and early single Crawling Back to You, but songs like Rescue Me and Gone Too Soon broaden the band’s sound.”

Billboard says of the new album: “Daughtry certainly knows how to cover the bases. Break The Spell isn’t quite all things for all people. But it comes pretty close.”

One of the more memorable tracks on the album, Gone Too Soon, seems to be the one track many folks are raving about, as the track reveals the tale of a child lost, as Chris sings about imagining a child’s birthday, and what he/she could have been.

    I don’t know where you’ve been reading but most of the reviews I have read pretty much pan the whole CD. Rolling Stone called it cheese ball. LOL

    Well every review I’ve read about this album certainly is not a rave review at all. In fact, more often I’ve read where the album sucks. I’ve listened to several tracks off it. Same old boring repetitious crapola. Bad lyrics, bad vocals, just bad all around.

    I love Daughtry since day one of American Idol. I love each song on each album for numerous reasons. This band truely knows how to connect to people, fans, music lovers, and the joys lof life. God bless them, they are honest people who love music for what it can reach to others! This album is amazing! I cannot pick a favorite.

    hahaha You sure cherry picked those reviews. Heres one from Slant magazine……. and there are more like it.

    Daughtry’s third album, Break the Spell, reaffirms that the band is defined by competence rather than ambition or creativity, by rote expressions of overwrought emotions rather than insight or depth. As principal songwriter and lyricist for the band, Chris Daughtry deserves the blame for the album’s utter lack of substance; he’s proven himself incapable of writing a coherent, compelling narrative or of turning a phrase that isn’t based on an obvious, threadbare cliché.

    I do not pay any attention to anything that old rag called rolling stone has to say. As for the rest that you haters like to bring up. Blah, blah, blah, blah.

    I think this is their best album to date, and I love it!!!!!!!
