Editorial Reviews

"I won't be caged to the status quo. I'm not afraid to stand and say what people won't." This lyric, taken from the song "Get Up Get Out," off of Rhett Walker Band's debut album, Come To The River, is one of several clues that this is not going to be your typical Christian music band or album. With a bold message reminiscent of Rich Mullins, Keith Green plus contemporaries including Casting Crowns and southern and rock influences like Third Day, NEEDTOBREATHE, The Black Crowes and Tom Petty, Rhett Walker Band not only stands out among the pack but once heard, cannot be forgotten.

The songs on Come To The River have a raw honesty not usually heard and cover relatable themes of grace, redemption and mercy. The album's first single, "When Mercy Found Me," tells Rhett's story of a life headed in a wrong direction compounded with choices that were breaking him which share how mercy and grace radically changed his path and gave him freedom. Other stand-out songs include the opener, "Gonna Be Alright," the haunting, "Brother" and the title track, "Come To The River."

A band basing its ministry approach on the tried but true "Prodigal Son" back-story - Walker wandered quite a bit in his teen years only to return to the faith of his childhood, in his early 20's - The Rhett Walker Band fly their confederate musical flag high on Come to the River, their Essential records debut. With material ranging from Southern rock anthems to Dixie fried folk ballads, it is RWB's adeptness at the latter that marks them as a band to watch. The majority of Come to the River is, largely, 'been there, heard that' with almost 3/4ths of the material the type of blazing guitar/mid tempo/southern pop anthem that are Third Day's stock in trade. Yet, when the band strips it down some - like the more recent offerings of Needtobreathe - and fully commits to the folk ethos of the southern musical experience (The lovely title cut, the country inflected "Brother" and the intimately sung, "Singing Stone") they unleash a sonic direction they would be very wise to base their future projects on. That said, the band more than adequately plays a variety of rural genres with equal aplomb and Walker has a voice for the ages...a strong, clear, but extremely emotional instrument that, alone, is worth the price of the album. Come to the River is definitely not a bad first attempt, yet leaves the Rhett Walker Band plenty of room for further growth.

I heard "When Mercy Found Me" on klove and instantly liked it (and wished it were played on radio stations more often). Then I heard the rest of the album. Wow! "When Mercy Found Me"- although great- is their softer, more mainstream appeal song. That means the rest of the album is beast!!! I'm going to buy a physical CD for my father, since he's a rock country fan and there are few unabashed Christians singing awesome rock country songs about Jesus.

I'm a middle-aged female listener and can't believe how much I really love this CD! The lyrics aren't theologically deep but the edginess of the music surprisingly hooked me from the very first song. When I heard "Gonna Be Alright" on the radio for the first time, I knew immediately I wanted to hear this group's other songs. Unfortunately, the CD had not yet been released so I took a risk and pre-ordered it without previewing any other song. I was not disappointed and may even wear the CD out soon!

RWB is smoking hot! "Come To The River" is jam packed with lyrics from the heart as well as melodies that make you wanna turn up the volume and sing along at the top of your lungs. This is a must have for the music lovers library!

If you cut your teeth on ABB & Lynyrd Skynyrd, then grew up on Molly Hatchet & Zac Brown, now grow up in the Lord while rockin' this new group. First they pour Grace all over the listener with gems like Vessel, When Mercy Found Me & Come to the River, encourage us to wake up & kick the enemy's be-hind in Can't Break Me, strengthen our trust & dependence on the Lord with All I Need & Make Me New, then challenge us out of complacency & onto the front lines with Get Up, Get Out. They extend the hand of brotherly love via gentle rebuke to those who look with disdain & a false sense of upright superiority (read: self-righteous snobbery) on such as us rockin', Lord lovin' 'RhettNecks' in Brother. Then they humbly give Father God all the credit for the gifts they share with us in the ballad Singing Stone, a fitting Amen to this awesome collection of musical worship. However....

That said, & praise given where it's due, like so many others in the business, they've used their new found public platform to espouse their political ideology. They give us lyrics of grace, but politics of hate (in the Lord's name, of course). Only when we as Christians come to understand that Jesus called us to be warriors for social justice & change, not to political battle, will we become the united catalyst for change that Christ intended. We're to become followers of Him, not a flag or nationalism. Do your Spirit & soul belong to Caesar, or to Christ? To who's Kingdom is your allegience given?

If this misguided political ideology leaks its way into future musical releases, I for one won't spend my money for it. Guess I'll just have to settle for being blessed by this first offering until I wear it out!

Summary...Buy this! You'll be blessed!

I purchased the first single from this album, "When Mercy Found Me" immediately after hearing it for the first time on K-Love. Could not wait to purchase the whole CD. I am VERY impressed!!!!! Great album!!

Didnt know one single thing about these guys before seeing them at a Christian music festival.

So it made hearing them a 100% non biased opinion. Needless to say, well at least for me, a band is defined by how they interact with fans when theyre live. RWB delivered HUGE for me. At my show they had a 5 song set. Which included Come to he River,Gonna be alright, When mercy found me, Get up, get up, and brother. I did recognize Brother as a song my local Christian station has played. My favorites are Come to the River, and Get up, get out and Brother. Honestly though, they're all great!

This album is so easy to listen to, thats not to say it doesnt have engaging tracks or that its 'easy listening" as in like smooth jazz, I mean that the talent of these guys when they interact as one has a congenial easy to follow vibe thats easy to dig even at first listening.

The southern rock flare produces a tremendously cozy "guitar on a porch" style thats laid back and makes me know, this is not the only album from these guys I will buy.

If you are a fan of Third Day, you'll love these guys too.

Recommended if passionate southern gospel rock sounds like it'll work for you, like it did for me. Worth everyone of the five stars I give it.
