Biography

Derek “Chap Stique” Mount recalls a conversation he had a few years ago with Jerome Olds, the patriarch of the family whose sons started Family Force 5 over a decade ago. “At one point he said to me, ‘Hey man, you know what’s wrong with you guys? When you first came out, you were reckless. You’re not reckless anymore,’” recalls the guitarist. ... Read more in Amazon's Family Force 5 Store

Every other song is super fun to listen to and makes the wait totally worth it.

It felt like there wasn't much effort put into this album, but I'm sure there was, it just seems like there wasn't any in my opinion.

This band was not meant for the mainstream pop sound that they failed at creating in III.

Let me get this straight. I am a huge FF5 fan. I've been to 15 of their live concerts and have listened to their older albums non-stop. I completely understand the FF5 music philosophy crazy,fun, nonsense music...But then there is III. It pains me to say this but the album is terribly bad. It may be okay for middle school girls but I think this album is really going to damage them with their original fan base. In how many interviews did they say that the were returning to a more BUFPB sound? The only song that is remotely similar is the opener Can You Feel It. This band was not meant for the mainstream pop sound that they failed at creating in III. Why did they give up a sound that everyone fell in love with?

The music itself is pretty good, its too bad about the lyrics. Very disappointed, especially after how much I liked Business Up Front... and Christmas Pageant. I have all of Family Force 5's albums, and have enjoyed their musical style but been concerned about their shallow lyrics. However, this album stoops to lyrics that are less than shallow but downright objectionable. How can a band that is marketed for Christians and released on a Christian label release an album that seems primarily focused on physical attraction to women? Is this what Christians today find redeeming to listen to? Is this the message we want our sons and daughters hearing, that physical attraction and how hot you are is all that matters (and of course how to shake your body)? The worst is "Dang Girl", which by the title alone is offensive. The lyrics are all about how hot women are, including girls on spring break (I can only assume they mean the girls in bikinis, as that is what someone would see on the beaches of Panama City Beach at Spring Break). Not to mention that most of these spring break "festivities" would disgust those who are trying to live according to the Word. I'm sorry guys, but make some music that lifts up the Lord, edifies believers (with all the great sound we've grown to love from you) or get out of the Christian music scene altogether. I would painfully recommend that all who are offended by this album write Tooth & Nail and ask them to drop this band. If you are going to sing about all secular things, make it in the secular marketplace.Read more ›

Ugh... It kills me to see so many people hating on this album simply because it either "isn't what they wanted it to be" (no album is, no matter what band is mentioned) or it "disproves Family Force 5's reputation as a Christian rock band". I call bullhonkey on both of these remarks for many reasons and since I can't easily be stopped if I start ranting on something that takes hold of my heart, I'm going to keep this review simple and short with little complexity, which, for me, is easier said than done.

First off, the diversity of the sound on this CD is astounding, in more ways than one. Despite what these ex-fans say, this diversity is really good thing, as Family Force 5 has definitely set the bar for taking risks and accomplishing the sound they expected to produce. "Mamacita" has a Spanish vibe that could make anyone cha-cha til the cows come home, "Tank Top" is a fresh, soft wave of pop that's pretty chill with its own might, "Get On Outta Here" is an in-your-face crunkfest directed towards haters of all kinds, "Wobble" is also a pretty crunked-up piece of work that introduces a new dance, and the list goes on and on. "III" has so many good songs that differentiate each other in terms of sound and purpose and I believe the CD itself to be overly undermined, since it sort of drives away from the crunk-ish, rocking, poppy sounds of "Business Up Front/Party in the Back".

Next thing, the messages are pretty interesting and, like I said before, help to differentiate the songs and what the purpose of writing them was for.

I LOVE FF5! I have seen them in concert multiple times and they always deliver. BUT this album is a disappointment.... not at all what we were waiting for! FF5 if you read this please listen to your first album and realize that your classics are the best. Sad that the guys who made such awesome songs as face down, replace me, love addict, earthquake, supersonic, and kountry gentleman created this...thing.

Wow. A band that has been innovative and genre-creating comes out with easily their most average album. Two biggest things that disappoint are this:

1. I heard they were going back to Business Up Front sound (you know, more crunk sounding), instead this is the most POP sounding album yet. The opening track (Can You Feel It)is hard-rock sounding and starts the album off right. Easily the best song on the album for me.

But then it's downhill. Most the songs I'm not even sure what's supposed to grab me. The childish lyrics? Awkward sounds? I've defended FF5 in how they are different from all the lame cookie-cutter bands (especially Christian ones)but I don't get what they were going for this time.

2. The length. 3 years and we get 10 songs and 33 minutes of music. Really?!! There was no way to squeeze more on this release? I'm sure there is an inevitable deluxe album coming but you couldn't do 12 songs now and add 3 or 4 later? You know, like Business Up Front? 10 short songs? Yeesh.

It feels like even though it's been 3 years between albums, they spent 2 weeks rushing making the album before it's release. Compared to the first 2 albums (both much better) this sounds and feels amateurish.

I want to hear their next effort to redeem this one, but I'm afraid to wait another 3 years for average effort. Still a fan and still want to see them in concert, but III has lowered the bar.
