It makes perfect sense that an anonymous online music fan has best described what rocker Chris Daughtry's Phoenix-like ascension means to the ever-evolving rock n' roll canon. It's his intensity - notes the insightful blogger - a balm for an ailing industry, writing that Daughtry in a recording studio is akin "to putting a beat-up violin in the hands of a master." A "pure" and "soulful" balm, with even professional scribes concurring that "Daughtry dominates," according to USA Today. "Homeboy loves to rock" crows Rolling Stone - but if the phenomenal impact and enduring legacy of the double-platinum-and-counting debut of Daughtry means anything, it's how enthusiastically the wandering music listener has embraced rock's new standard bearer.
