DAVID ARCHULETA: The Other Side of Down {Music Review and Giveaway} (11/15)


I love music, every and all kinds, moreso now that I am older. I was given the opportunity to review David Archuleta’s new cd, “The Other Side of Down”. You may be thinking, hmm, who is David Archuleta? Remember that cute little brown haired boy on American Idol, you know the one who when he opened his mouth, the sound that came from it was soothing, beautiful music. Who knew that little guy could belt out some awesome music???

My favorite song on the entire CD is “The Other Side of Down”. I love the upbeat tempo, the words, the beat, just everything about it. The entire cd is great and would be a fantastic addition to anyone’s music collection.

Track Listing:
1. The Other Side Of Down (3:13)
2. Something ‘Bout Love (4:22)
3. Elevator (3:24)
4. Stomping The Roses (3:01)
5. Who I Am (3:44)
6. Falling Stars (3:35)
7. Parachutes And Airplanes (3:33)
8. Look Around (3:26)
9. Good Place (3:25)
10. Complain (3:24)
11. Things Are Gonna Get Better (3:14)
12. My Kind Of Perfect (3:37)

My 8 year old, Kylie, loves this cd and regularly goes into her room, turns on her stereo (yes, we still have the old-fashioned stereo system in our house), and starts singing and dancing. I, at times, join her in dance and song. This cd is catchy for all ages, young and old.  It brings rhythm to all bodies and truly is a great cd to have.

Thank you for this review. Yes, all ages can enjoy David Archuleta's music. I am a grandmother of 5! He is also one classy individual; respectful, humble and always looking to involve himself in charity work.

Yes, TOSOD is a fantastic cd. Thanks for your review. I am not able to pick a favorite song on the album as it seems to change daily. What a great voice and a great person!

Missed the Black Friday Lowe's Giveaway. Just got to your blog and saw on another post the mention of
that, but it started early this morning so I just went now and entered that one on facebook.
Really like David Archuleta.
I hope a song off this album
makes it to radio. Would love
to hear him again after Crush!

Sure I'd love to be in a drawing for
the David Archuleta OSOD giveaway!
This would be a gift for Madison!
