Giveaway: The Other Side of Down by David Archuleta (3 Winners!)

da

David Archuleta’s 3rd studio album titled, The Other Side of Down was recently released on October 5th.  This is what he had say about it:

"I'm really looking forward to releasing this album. Most of the songs on the album represent thoughts and experiences that I've personally gone through," says David. "I hope this album helps people understand more of where I'm coming from as an artist and as a person.  It's about moving forward in life, making progress in accomplishing your goals and dreams while appreciating what life has given you."

Earlier this year, David Archuleta earned the distinction of the "Best American Idol ever" in a Billboard magazine reader poll. Archuleta was the American Idol Season 7 runner-up in 2008, and he's widely known for his exceptional vocal talent and charismatic boy next door charm. The 19-year-old Utah native received accolades for his self-titled 2008 debut; People magazine observed, "There's a surprising freshness to his popCD."  The album contained the hit song "Crush," which has sold over 2.3 million digital units to date, and went on to sell over 750,000 albums.  Last year, he released a seasonal album, Christmas from the Heart and it is certain to become a holiday staple for years to come.

My take:  I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of David Archuleta when watching him on Idol a few years back.  He is definitely a talented young man and has a great voice, I always thought.  However I’m not a fan of his singing style.  It’s a little too over-the-top for my taste.  It’s okay, but I won’t be uploading it into my iTunes collection.  But that’s just me – and don’t take my word for it.  Listen to a few of the tracks and see if it’s your kind of music.

  1. I enjoyed David Archuleta on American Idol. He had the misfortune though of appearing the same year as David Cook, who was probably my favorite American Idol contestant of all time.

    I'd love to hear David Archuleta's new CD. I'd probably give it a listen, then pass it along to my niece Bailey. Thanks!
