This is the same cutie who sang CRUSH?? and TOUCH MY HAND??
The music and the vid – they are so different from what David used to do. It’s sensual .. arousing .. stimulating .. allusive .. dramatic with an element of darkness – the dancing movements representing chains of emotional bondage which eventually fall off to the floor at the end of the song. Very symbolic. Very modern. A joy to watch.
I suspect David wanted a personal challenge of writing something more edgy, more dark and more badass? And also a likewise video. To break the tradition. A breakaway. To be what he is now. In fact, what he has truly done is a BREAKTHROUGH.
For me, the bottom line is simply this: DAVID ARCHULETA CAN SING ANYTHING.
But there is also something called GROWTH. And David has certainly grown. Not just in age, as in all of us. I’m talking about his growth and development in his musical maturity.
David Archuleta has also at last found himself. The HIMSELF which he wants to be. His inner self.
Will his music in the future be more like PARALYZED? Or will he continue to change genres to satisfy his vast musical talents?
The response to this single is already cracking the net! and I’m elated to see that besides the ever-doting fans, the many, many hundreds of comments within less than 24 hours are coming from netizens/fans who have missed him from the Idol days and are excited about this “Come Back”song.
