Daughtry’s radio-friendly rock is as middle-of-the-road as an interstate’s center lines.
The band’s tunes are well put together, almost to a fault.
There’s no edge or personality to them, just craftsmanship.
Band namesake Chris Daughtry is skilled at grafting singalong hooks to by-the-numbers arena rock conceits like lighter-in-the-air choruses and lyrics awash in generalizations on love and overcoming the odds.
Maybe that’s why the group has been successful: Their tunes require no effort to digest on behalf of the listener.
Daughtry’s catalog goes down easy.
The hard part is remembering any of it afterward.
