With 10 days to go before its official release, amazon.com posted the full album snippets of the much anticipated sophomore offering of David Archuleta, The Other Side of Down.

It has been over a year since David released an album (not counting CFTH). Industry experts say that the 2nd album is a pivotal effort for any artist. And with David securing more creative leeway with TOSOD, the anticipation is so much more among the fanbase and critics alike.

So what do you think? Are we over the moon? Impressed? Underwhelmed? Spazzed-out? Or are you more inclined to rave @ Jive for whatever reason, after listening to the clips? What are your early favorites?

The full alum clips should tide-over hungry Archies who have been wishing for new materials from David. Meanwhile, the obligatory countdown begins – 10, 9, 8 … I know, I know, October 05 couldn’t come fast enough.

Are we there yet?

ps: Although the costing has not been confirmed yet by Sony BMG, Manila will have Archie Calendars out in time for TOSOD’s October 4 release (yup, we get it at least a day ahead). Better check your local distributor for your own album promo
