Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2012 two CD release, the final studio album from the award-winning Christian Rock band. Give Us Rest is an epic, triumphant album that poetically illustrates that, in death, something new is reborn. The album showcases the band's unique music style and touches on Worship, Pop, Rock, Bluegrass and Electronic genres. It features 34 tracks, including the first single "Let Me Feel You Shine".

About the Artist

Named among the "most thoughtful, progressive and exciting acts in contemporary Christian music" by The New York Times, the popular yet unconventional David Crowder*Band released their last GRAMMY® nominated album Church Music in 2009 which debuted at No. 1 on the Christian retail chart scanning over 35,000 units. This gave David Crowder*Band their largest street week to date ranking in at No. 11 on the Billboard Top 200. David Crowder*Band's latest music video for "SMS (Shine)" nabbed coverage on NBC's The Today Show, Fox & Friends, USA Today, Billboard and Paste Magazine online as well as a GMA Dove Award win for "Short Form Video of the Year." The video was also recognized at the LA Film Festival in 2011. Along with the group's 9 GMA Dove Awards and 22 nominations, the band was the first Christian artist to be named MSN.com's Artist of the Year in 2006. The band is also part of the Passion Movement, participating in university student gatherings in the US and around the world. The group's leader David Crowder is further an acclaimed author, having penned two books, including his acclaimed, highly personal, Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven, But Nobody Wants to Die: Or (The Eschatology of Bluegrass).

David Crowder's final album, "Give Us Rest", was inspired by a requiem mass, or a "mass of the dead", frequently celebrated in the context of a funeral (according to Wikipedia). With a history of such incredible albums as "A Collision" and "Church Music", which are two of my all-time favorite albums by Crowder, could their final album possibly be their greatest yet?

First, a few quick initial impressions (for those who don't want to read the entire review):
* The album is much more musically diverse than their last album, "Church Music", which could be a positive or negative depending on your viewpoint. As a whole, this album sounds less cohesive and single-minded musically, which means that occasionally it "flows" a bit oddly. Personally, I appreciate the musical diversity. In this sense, it's much more like the highly diverse "A Collision", to which "Give Us Rest" is a direct successor.
* There are very few - if any - radio-ready K-LOVE singles off this album. Nothing sounds 'standard', like "How He Loves" off Church Music or "Everything Glorious" on Remedy. Likely singles, if any, would include "Come Find Me" (possibly the most radio-ready of any track), current single "Let Me Feel You Shine", and perhaps "Fall On Your Knees" or "After All (Holy)". However, these are NOT corporate worship songs, as every song - being highly intricate and unique and wonderful in its own way - would be a challenge to pull off by a standard worship band. For those looking for more corporate worship staples or K-LOVE-style songs, I would not recommend this album.

David Crowder and his band have led us on a merry journey over the last 7 albums, from upstarts who sounded like nothing else out there to the go-to guys for some of the best, most creative praise and worship rock around. Crowder's amazing, idiosyncratic voice and the unfailing songwriting always kept our eyes on Jesus. I am sad that this is the last planned Dave Crowder Band album. I am happy that it is so fantastic. Like Rich Mullins wonderful liturgical influenced work (A Liturgy, A Legacy, and A Ragamuffin Band), Crowder uses the Requiem as the touchstone in this album. But there is hardly a trace of sadness here-this is a requiem full of thankfulness, of joy, of worship. Finishing the album up with hymns like "Because He Lives" gives me absolute chills every time I hear it. This is a wonderful album, full of real and genuine adoration, full of hope and full of the ingredients that make Crowder's music so creative and special. I am thankful that we have this final document of an amazing band--perhaps most amazing because they never seem to want to keep the focus on them, but only on Jesus. Highly, enthusiastically recommended.

Summary:
David Crowder Band, the cutting edge of Christian worship bands in the last decade, offer up their sixth and final album. It's a virtuoso effort of bells, chimes, whistles, banjos, techno, and choir-pumped glory, with their most Christ-centered focus and ambitious musicality. It's an unforgettable experience.

Review:
No one does it quite like the David Crowder Band. Not only have they been light years ahead of the Contemporary Christian scene (which is mostly light years behind), but they're often outpacing their secular counterparts. While most Christian bands have an equivalent in the mainstream -- Third Day is Pearl Jam, Tree63 is U2, Group 1 Crew is Black Eyed Peas, Switchfoot is Switchfoot -- there's really no close match to DCB. While they may be made of many derivative parts, David Crowder's signature country twang and the aggressive, experimental musicianship is more than a copy-paste quilt of genres. He's really in an artistic league of his own.

This double-disc album, again featuring an operatic structure between songs like Church Music, comes together more like a meta-narrative than musical pieces. Where his previous album felt like a foray into uncertain ground, this time DCB masters it. It is the best of David Crowder but more than a best-hits album. In an era now where music listeners can buy single songs for a dollar, this is not one of those albums you can cherry-pick for custom listening. It demands to be heard like a book, from start to finish, full blast. Like any album that is not immediately radio-friendly, it may take a few listens or rewinds to appreciate the craftsmanship. Or you may get right on board like I did.

Hey folks, been a long time Crowder fan - appreciate their influence and how many times I've entered into personal worship and adoration of the Lord through their music and ministry...but this last album of theirs...it's taking a while to sink into and get used to. Perhaps I need a few more listening sessions...but it's just not doing it for me. Perhaps they've become OVERPRODUCED like there are too many cooks at the mixing board...all of these additives and sounds quirks and I guess I just miss the rock and roll worship sound of their band. Perhaps I'm displaying my age, but I was eager to enjoy this album and I will miss them being around, but I haven't quite gotten there yet. Another part of me also appreciates their live stuff with the Passion series...I find that with other bands like United Live - their studio work is subpar compared to the live music with other worshippers. Crowder's band is always better live, it seems, than in the studio. Yes, the latter sounds sharper and cleaner, but the live stuff just gets to that heavenly place...which for me is why I enjoyed the band in the first place. Sorry fans, just my opinion.

Peace and grace to the Crowder Band and their families.
