John Davis: Arigato (2007)

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

When Knoxville indie rockers Superdrag disbanded in 2003, somebody forgot to tell frontman John Davis to unplug.

John Davis - ArigatoDavis is back with his second solo album, Arigato—an unapologetic Christian apologetic that is as ferocious in sound as it is convicting in lyric. Davis has a knack for straight-ahead rock ‘n roll that pulls no punches and delivers pulsing rock revelations.

The album’s lead track, Chant Down Babylon,” sets the pace for a rollicking exploration of Davis’ constant struggles between spirit and flesh. On “Lamentation vs. Laughter,” Davis declares, “Every step further along / feels alright for a time but it comes out wrong / We still trespass, we still transgress” — later admitting that “without You, all of this means nothing.”

Arigato is a big musical thank you both to a Creator who provides in spite of personal failure and to die-hard fans who continue to stick with a post-Superdrag John Davis.

Would put on a mixtape between: Superdrag and Stone Temple Pilots

Tracks to sample: “Chant Down Babylon” (iTunes), “I Need Someone” (iTunes), “Lamentation vs. Laughter” (iTunes)
