@DavidArchie Goes Gospel – A Snippet

Is anyone really surprised? That David’s 1st offering since he came back from his Mission belongs to the Gospel genre? Am sure some Archies are further wondering whether this will be the direction David will take from now on and forget about his pop roots and more commercial beginnings. For me? Am just excited to hear his voice on record. And you know what am more thrilled of? The Nashville connection! Granted that this Nashville Band is actually a Mormon music group founded by Jason Deere and Dan Truman, the pianist of the popular country group Diamond Rio (Source: Wikipedia), am still excited of the prospect of David leaning over Nashville […]

Parachutes and Airplanes

The roller coaster ride that is TOSOD continues when you listen to the 7th cut of this album, “Parachutes & Airplanes”. I’d say it is well placed in the CD setlist, coming after “Falling Stars”. Nicknamed “PANDA” by the arch angels, it is probably the 2nd track that the fan base is most familiar with (aside from the used-to-be-carrier single “Something ‘Bout Love”), given that David debuted this song during the BYU-ID Rexburg Concert sometime in June 2010 along with “If I Could Only Be” and “You’re Not a Very Good Liar”. PANDA received mixed reviews back then but it was my favourite among the three songs. PANDA […]

Who I Am

Listening to David’s sophomore pop album, “The Other Side of Down” is like opening a gift swathed in several layers of wrappers or boxes. Each layer, heightening the excitement; Each peeling, revealing or confirming another facet of David’s enigmatic persona. This Time it’s Personal So when David says “this album has more of me” and that “I want people to see me, hear me. It’s like re-introducing the real David Archuleta”, that’s exactly what we get – an album stamped with his personality and his own experiences. It brims with delightful pop textures, unbridled positivity and that quirky sense of “Davidism” on life and its challenges. TOSOD […]

Stompin’ The Roses

There is nothing about this song that would make you say, “Oh, that’s David Archuleta,” except the Voice. Most people don’t associate David with a rock sound – in fact some people haven’t quite gotten tuned into David’s pop-star status. There are still some who only remember the 17-year-old sweetheart with the gorgeous voice who sang ballads on American Idol. Truly, some people are just not tuned in. And they would surely be surprised to hear David perform this song, with it’s disquieting lyrics and clear rock sound. During the introduction, the bare bones of basic drum beats and single guitar notes, lays the rhythmic backdrop for the rest of the […]
