article imageReview: Chris Daughtry is back with superb studio album 'Baptized' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Nov 24, 2013 in Entertainment
Singer-songwriter Chris Daughtry released his latest studio album "Baptized" on November 19 via his label, RCA Records. He either wrote or co-wrote all of its songs.
His latest studio album commences with the cathartic title cut "Baptized" and it is followed by his lead single, the inspirational "Waiting for Superman."
It is followed by the catchy "Battleships" and "I'll Fight" is another solid tune.
"Wild Heart" is a favorite for sure and "Long Live Rock & Roll" is upbeat and extremely radio-friendly.
Equally noteworthy cuts include "The World We Knew" and "High Above the Ground," where he showcases his smooth vocals. "Undefeated" is another optimistic track.
The poignant ballad "18 Years" is another powerhouse performance by Daughtry. It deserves to be a single at some point in the future.
"Cinderella" is quite different than his previous musical work, since it has a laid-back and mellow vibe to it that is reminiscent of a typical Train or Jason Mraz song; however, he takes a risk and he is successful with it.
The Amazon deluxe edition of this album closes with an acoustic version of "Battleships," which is a real treat.
The Verdict
Overall, Daughtry excels on his latest album Baptized. He sings with a great deal of emotion and it is evident that he loves what he does for a living. The only mediocre offerings that I found on here were "Witness" and "Broken Arrows," however, the album as a whole is well-written and well-sung. Although it is not too rock sounding, it will fare well on the pop and adult contemporary radio airwaves. It garners an A- rating. Well done Daughtry.
