Sorry about this, but I would like to address a negative review I saw on this site: I believe the message of "NOT DATING" is that boys and girls should not look for a possible life partner until they have figured who they are and where they are going in their own life. Makes sense to me. To the reviewer who criticized Barlow Girl for writing a song against dating - I thought tolerance was in? Oh, that's right; only worldly tolerance is the order of the day. Silly me, I forgot.

And now, on with the review:

#1 On My Own - Nice attempt at creating something different, but I'm not sure success was found. The lyrics are not the problem in this song. The music has too much of a hard, repetitive strum to it and the fast-beat-to-slow beat and back again just doesn't work well on this tune.

The lyrics are about the times we really need God to take over in our lives - the times where we really fall hard. That makes this song very strong in the lyrics department. I just wished the women had worked a little harder on the rhythm and timing for this one. I thin I could learn to love the song, but it may take awhile.

#2 Pedestal - Na-na songs aren't my thing, but it is a little catchy - this second song with lyrics that once again outperform the music. As the father of two girls who attend Peer Pressure High School (at least that should be the name of the school), the lyrics in this song hit home hard. Even girls brought up in a loving Christian home can be a victim of idolizing these stars and their fame appeal.

#3 Never Alone - Is God there? Many times we cry out to the Lord we know is there. We feel Him at times so strongly it is amazing, and at times we can barely sense his presence.

This is good music. It reminds me of Evanesence. Especially "Never Alone." The only issue I have with it is that being a mom now of four young children, it doesn't touch me quite the way it might have before I got married. But for a single young woman, it is great. It is a rare thing to find a "Christian" band that still cares about what God really says.

There were a few who reviewed this and didn't understand the "no dating" issue. Barlow Girls do not believe in dating. However, an alternative to dating is called courtship. Courtship is when you look for a man to have a special relationship with for the SOLE purpose of finding out if you want to marry him. If you find you do not want to marry him, you break off the special relationship and return to friendship only. This is different from dating because dating means you are using each other for physical pleasure and have no goal in mind but momentary fun and if you happen to get married...that's cool. Courtship has a goal and if done properly...nobody is used and the relationship glorifies God. Usually, courtship is by and under the girl's father's supervision. This keeps everyone safe from broken hearts and sexual sin.

So for those who were confused...it doesn't mean Barlow Girls expect to be married by arranged marriage or something. It means that they are taking a stand against selfish, momentary, pointless dating and keeping themselves (including their hearts) pure for their husband. Just like the Church is called to do for Jesus! :-) Ephesians 5.

I take offense to one of the reviews for this CD where the reviewer states a one star rating because they say "no dating" and he/she didnt like the chord progression....
I bought this CD because I heard a track on a freebe CD and I was impressed. I brought it home and from the first listen I was hooked. These sisters have a very unique sound and a very positive message. Also, a big part of the appeal for me is the lead singer's voice. She is just fantastic!
This is a CD for all ages (although it is probably geared towards teenagers). I am a 39 year old guy and this has a permanent place in my CD changer! Every song on this CD is great and I highly recommend it. If you want fun, uplifting, positive, catchy, great vocals, good songwriting, and something you can just crank -- then this is the CD for you.
Good job Barlow Girls -- thanks for the effort - you chicks ROCK!

OKay, this is a AWSOME album. If you're wondering, BarlowGirl is a group of 3 sisters. I absolutely LOVE this cd! Each song has it's own sound, and it's own, personal message that shouldn't be ignored, especially if you're a teenage girl.
1. On My Own: This song is really good, it has some neat, original lyrics on it, as do all of the songs. It's a rock song, but it's not the most upbeat one on the album. One line is "I promised myself that I wouldn't fall, but here I've fallen, I guess I'm not as strong as I thought, All I can do is cry to you. Oh God you have to save me, you're my last and only hope.." (4/5)
2. Pedastal: This one is a bit harder than the first track, and it's lyrics are equally original and interesting. Not one of my favorites, but still a very good song. "You're a god I know it, How you stand above them all, You are my perfect person and I'd hate to see you fall." (3/5)
3. Never Alone: Very Good song. It starts out quiet and calm, then goes into rock, and sort of bounces between the two, creating a pretty neat-o song. It has some pretty catchy lyrics, too.
"Such a deep, deep reassureance You've placed in my life We cannot Separate, 'Cause you're part of me, and though you're invisable I trust the unseen.." (4/5)
4. Harder Than the First Time: This is another hard song, it, like most of the BarlowGirl songs, has a tendancy to stay stuck in your head. It has a hard background, and it's basically a good song. "I didn't see you, but God I want to, You've come alive and I think I've fallen harder than the first time.." (3/5)
5. You Lead Me: This is one of the slower songs on the cd, you can easily skip it to go to the next track, though it is a nice song when you're in the mood for it. It speeds up a little near the end, but still remains pretty quiet.
