The Other Side of Down

So yesterday was the big day. David Archuleta's new album, The Other Side of Down, was officially released yesterday. Of course, all of David's real fans had already heard the new songs last week. In fact, Sony/Jive sent out the fan packs ordered from David's fan site the middle of last week. Most of us had the album late last week. And we feel in love with it really quickly, or at least I did.

What is not to love about David's music? Of course, not every track is on my all time favorite list at this moment. I'm sure I will change my mind a few times along the way as I hear the songs live. That is the true way to judge any of David's music. Live and in person. I so hope that he will come to Texas for this tour. Of course, every fan around the world wants him to appear in their town or at least close enough to drive to. He can't be everywhere at once. But I really need to hear him live again. It's been 15 months since I heard him in Houston with the Demi Lovato tour. That was too long ago and his performance was too short. I could listen to him for hours and not get tired.

Well, speaking of listening to David, I just listened to his performance on Live with Regis and Kelly tv show and I am so proud of that appearance. Elevator and Falling Stars both sounded wonderful and the interview was great also. David sounded confident and comfortable during both parts. I bet he gained some new fans with that performance. Just be yourself David and people will fall in love with you. You call yourself dorky but we all think that you are wonderful and charming.

I want to write a personal review of the album but I think I need to listen a couple more times before so I can really think about the lyrics to each song. I'll start this tomorrow morning when I'm not rushed.

At this very moment, my favorite songs are My Kind of Perfect, Who I Am and Elevator but this my change tomorrow. We will see.
