"There is a Reason" Story Behind the Song


Album: Raising Up The Dead

Caedmon’s Call is all grown up. We met them in a college dorm room, played and sang along with their acoustic guitars and folksy harmonies, and nodded our heads to their lyrics, which expressed the kind of faith that went beyond our churchy roots. The band that felt like the kid in the youth group who fought through the ... Read more in Amazon's Caedmon's Call Store

Overview: In many ways, Caedmon's Call's new album "Back Home" is an album by a band transformed. Aaron Tate is no longer their principal songwriter; "Beautiful Mystery" may very well be his last song for them. Young Josh Moore, a musical prodigy whose skills at keyboard have reshaped the sound of the band, is a man now, and his songs on this album reflect a maturity and experience only hinted at in "In The Company of Angels"; rather than a liability, this youngest bandmember has proven to be a rewarding contributor to the band. Caedmon's Call continues its solicitation of songs from outside the band; the result is an impressive portfolio of great diversity. Lastly, the band has achieved a remarkable maturity, and it shows in the polished performances, flexible interactions between soloists, seemless integration of all styles, including world music, that they have explored, and the arrangements that let everyone shine without anyone stealing the limelight. Caedmon's Call has grown up musically and spiritually and returned to report what it has learned, and "Back Home" is our opportunity to share in the family reunion.
The Songs: Principal songwriters include Randall Goodgame, Sandra McCracken, Josh Moore, Aaron Senseman, and Aaron Tate (with help from Cliff Young and Derek Webb), the latter two contributing just one song each. Unlike previous albums, the songs of "Back Home" are not obviously linked thematically, although "Purity of heart is to will one thing" or "Keep your eyes on the prize" come close to a theme for this album. Not as engaging or memorable as previous songs, most do not cry out to be sung repeatedly for months on end.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Feast for the Soul and Their Best Album Yet May 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Caedmon's Call has long been loved for the variety associated with any of their projects. Three lead vocalists (Cliff Young, Derek Webb, Danielle Young), two primary songwriters (Aaron Tate, Derek Webb), and five different musicians (Cliff Young, Derek Webb, Joshua Moore, Todd Bragg, Garrett Buell) have contributed immeasurably to the band's success. Each of their projects has been different from each other: their folk/alternative self-titled major label debut (1997) was followed by an attempt to capture their live sound in 40 Acres (1999). That album's successor, Long Line of Leavers (2000), was very experimental in nature musically and a departure from previous efforts lyrically. Finally, In the Company of Angels (2001) was a worship album that sounded ... well, pretty much like you'd expect a Caedmon's Call worship album to sound. Nonetheless, there were three big surprises with that album: the inclusion of several slightly modernized hymns in the mix, the decreased songwriting and vocal input from Derek Webb, and the introduction of three new songwriters: Sandra McCracken (Webb's wife), Aaron Senseman, and bandmate Joshua Moore.
Still, all of these diverse projects really didn't hint at what would come with their newest release, Back Home. In some ways, Back Home can be considered a combination of styles from each of their previous albums, but in other ways, it's startlingly original. When Caedmon's Call hasn't been singing about human love in the past (as was true for roughly half of Long Line of Leavers and about one-third of 40 Acres), it's been majoring on theology, and a particularly Calvinist one at that. In the process (and this was undoubtedly unintentional), heart has taken somewhat of a backseat to head.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best yet February 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Back Home", the fifth studio album from folk-rock group Caedmon's Call, finds a middle ground between the acoustic folk rock of their early years and the experimental pop of recent years (particularly their "Long Line of Leavers" CD), but tends to lean more toward their musical roots. The opening track, "Only Hope", features the familiar acoustic guitars, vocal harmonies, and worldly percussion that have established Caedmon's Call as one of the most unique sounding groups in Christian Music. Two others that feature these signature elements are "Hands of the Potter" and "Awake My Soul", two lively numbers, the latter of which has a bit of a zydeco feel to it. However, many of the tracks build on that signature sound to provide something totally enjoyable. Standouts include "You Created", with the trade off between male and female vocals of Cliff and Danielle Young; "The High Countries", which features Danielle's smooth voice against a mellow musical backdrop somewhat reminiscent of parts of U2's "The Joshua Tree" CD; and "The Kingdom", which combines majestic string arrangements with some Asian influences. Lyrically, the biggest change is in the songwriters: instead of relying solely on their usual songwriters, Aaron Tate and Derek Webb, they brought in a host of songwriters including band member Josh Moore, Webb's wife and independent artist Sandra McCracken, Randall Goodgame, Andrew Peterson, and others. Tate and Webb only contribute one song, "Beautiful Mystery", which they co-wrote with Cliff Young. Still, the quality of the lyrics remains the same: contemplative, introspective, and thought-provoking. Read more ›
