The Other Side of Down is the latest release from American Idol runner-up, David Archuleta. This album has an overwhelmingly positive message. I love that it's family-friendly with content that's safe for ears of all ages.
While it's nothing shockingly new or innovative, it has a great overall sound, catchy lyrics, and a varied set of songs. Archuleta showcases his vocal talent that fans of American Idol season eight grew to expect and anticipate. I definitely appreciated the wide range of songs. There is a good mix of upbeat pop songs and slower ballads.
My favorite has to be "Falling Stars," a soulful song of love lost. The song showcases Archuleta's vocal range. I also enjoyed the message of the song "Complain."
Cause I don’t always get everything I wanted
Doesn’t turn out just the way I thought it all should be
Baby, I can’t complain
No more wasting my time looking in the mirror
Wishing my life was a little bit clearer
No way - Baby, I can’t complain
If you're looking for something edgy, look elsewhere. It's not cutting edge, it's not Lady Gaga (thank goodness), but it is a highly enjoyable, optimistic offering from the teenage sensation.
