All Music Guide - Kelly McCartney
Howie Day is a rare talent. His feel for melody and structure coupled with the poetry that comprises his lyrics prove this point over and over, 11 songs running. Even amid, or perhaps thanks to, tastefully straightforward production, Day's brilliance comes through. And seeing as he was 19 when he made Australia, he's just getting started. His are the songs that stick in listeners' minds and ears for days on end, even after only one listen. Dive a little deeper and one gets to the heart of his intimate storytelling, and they'll be awfully glad they did. Just pick a tune, any tune. From "Sorry So Sorry" and "She Says" to "More You Understand" and "Morning After" or any ...

From "Sorry So Sorry" and "She Says" to "More You Understand" and "Morning After" or any point in between, these are great songs one and all. They are not the work of a teenybopper. Rather, Day falls more in line with Fiona Apple in terms of the maturity and depth of songwriting craft that surprisingly comes from such a young upstart. Indeed, he's an old soul who just happens to have blonde spiky hair. Those who love the smart pop offered by folks like Jonatha Brooke, Neil Finn, and Sheryl Crow will, from the opening groove box rhythm, be hooked on this wunderkind. And his live performances are just as mesmerizing. It's no wonder Australia sold over 10,000 copies before any of the big boys even had a chance to take a meeting.

    'Australia'- An Amazing Album!

    This is truly an amazing record! 'Sorry So Sorry' is one of my favourites, actually, all of them are equally amazing! This is a break from the pop scene today. He doesn't sound like anybody on the charts. His music is relaxing and catchy at the same time! This music is definatly for those who want a break from artists like Avril Lavigne and Jesse McCartney. Overall, this CD is worth the 9 or 10 dollars! The songs are all very well put together, and are perfect for anybody! Some amazing songs are 'Sorry So Sorry', 'She Says', 'Ghost', and 'More You Understand'.

    An Amazing Talent & An Amazing Debut

    This album is quite haunting. I beg all of you to witness this amazing performer in concert. I saw him three times last year opening for Tori Amos. He's brilliant!

    Yeah, Howie

    Buy Australia, you won't be sorry! If you've seen him in concert, you might be slightly disappionted, but it will get you through until you get a few of his concerts! If you've heard him on the radio, then you will totally enjoy Australia. The songs are great, everybody has their own favorite, many love "Morning After," I personally like "Secret." This album can't compair to Howie live, but I still listen to it regularly.

    Awesome CD

    Howie Day is just awesome. His musical creations are amazing. I had long been a fan of Howies live stuff, and was really excited when he put out this studio CD. I urge you to check the CDout... but even more so, I insist that you go see Howie live. Thats when he is in his elemnet and you will be so amazed at his talent. Howie Day is for sure, one of the next big things in music.

    Incredible Voice

    Howie's voice is incredible. He has a sexy voice that makes you listen to the CD all through. IF you like John Mayer, then you will love Howie Day.

    All of the songs on the album are solid. Once you see his live show, you'll be totally convinced. He's very creative and innovative.

    Great lyrics, still listening after Two years

    Rare for me, since I change my music out all the time, this has been a part of my regular CD rotation for two years, and I see no reason to change that. He's been voted Boston Best two years in a row, and its deserved. Great lyrics, amazing in concert, definitely something to see to understand.

    One of the BEST up coming STARS

    I saw Howie Day in concert and the performance was just as exciting as DMB. Yes...just as good as DAVE. If ever there is a chance to see him, it is a MUST!!! He is amazing and has such a talent.

    Not many have this much talent....

    I first saw Howie when he opened for Tori Amos in Tampa, on her Scarlet's Walk tour. He is the first opener that I actually enjoyed, and bought the CD after the show. His challenge is to provide his concert listeners with something other than just a guy playing guitar solo on a stage. He answers that challenge by playing a one-man-band show. The things he did on stage--it blew my mind!! I definitely recommend this CD, it grips your soul with its raw emotion and lovesick angst.

    Amazing, Inventive, Brilliant

    This album is amazing an inspirational. Howie's lyrics are intelligent. His voice is similar to artist such as Sting(Police) and Dave Matthews(Dave Matthews Band). The only thing more amazing then the album is his live show, where howie turns his guitar into a one man band with his various pedals on his guitar and his vocals. This is a must have for any serious music fan. Esspecially people who love the music of Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer and fans of Radiohead
