As many of you know, Chris Daughtry did not win it all in his American Idol tenure, but out of all the finalists, he is considered one of the best.  Daughtry came out with his first album which was self titled, on November 21st, 2006.  Out of all the American Idol singers who have gone through the show, Daughtry has been one of the better ones.  Both him, Kelly Clarkson, and Carrie Underwood each came out with very successful and solid first albums, and their follow up albums were also very good.

Daughtry has something very special to him, that really captures the listener.  Unlike most Rock albums out there (now a day), his has something different to it.  The musical notes and lyrics are all really great.  His voice wins you over and fits perfectly with the music he plays.  Daughtry, as a band, plays well together, and it can be seen on every track on the album.  If there is one thing I want to do, it is to see Daughtry live in concert.  

Its been a little more than a year (closing in on a year and a half), and I am sure we will end up hearing about another album sooner or later.  From what I understand, there is going to be a second album from Daughtry, but there is no real word as to when, or what the album will be about or come out.  If you don't really know about Daughtry, then go out to your local music store, or Amazon/iTunes, and purchase a copy of his self entitled debut album.  I promise that this album will not be a let down, and if you are someone who likes rock, you enjoy every track on this CD.
