Under The Radar

Hard-working hat-wearing ‘Had A Bad Day’ songwriter Daniel Powter’s third album is a bit of a mess when all’s said and done.

Hard-working hat-wearing ‘Had A Bad Day’ songwriter Daniel Powter’s third album is a bit of a mess when all’s said and done. For all of the Canadian songsmith’s attempts at putting together a bunch of songs featuring more hooks than a fisherman’s tackle-box, the results are forgettable, meandering, Beatles-lite bollocks, to be frank. At one point the deluded warbler even invokes the spirit of the Boss when he hollers, “Baby we were born to run” during the pedestrian ‘Not Coming Back.’ Well Daniel, if by, “Baby we were born to run,” you mean “baby we were born to be a one-hit wonder” then we get what you’re saying, dude.

Key Track: 'Not Coming Back'
