Now you're Cookin'

This album is exactly what you'd expect from this particular American Idol winner. Rock anthems, ballads, and an album cover picture of Daughtry with hair. With writing credits on 11 of the 14 songs (there's a sneakily hidden track after song 12, twelve minutes in), Cook establishes himself as a singer/songwriter, and steps up from his Analog Heart days. All he needs now is someone to create better album jackets.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Declaration: We hear you!
2. Heroes: Rockin' intro, monster rock ballad
3. Lights On: My son loves this track, and plays it at every opportunity. It's even on his cellphone as both the ringtone and the wake-up tune.
4. Come Back to Me: This completes the opening quartet of best tracks on the album.
5. Life on the Moon: Okay, make that a quintet
6. Mr. Sensitive: How emo can you go? Hard rocking chorus.
7. Lie: I like it, and that's the truth
8. Avalanche: the snowball's rolling
9. Permanent: Dude sings his heart out
10. The Time of My Life: The title-winning song

A solid album, recommended for fans of arena rock, eye-liner embellished rockers and American Idol.

Thanks for the review - especially the SASS ;) - and insight into Cook's effort. I was a big Cook fan last season of AI and have been meaning to check out his current stuff. Will definitely do that based on your notes here.

Hi Darin - His new stuff is a definite improvement over Analog Heart
