Dear Gospel Blues Lover,

I don't believe that there was a review written for the "Innocent Blood" album yet. REZ Band (formerly Ressurection Band) really set the gospel blues on fire with this album. A lot of their former music was definitely heavy metal rock, but this album has the feel of Blind Willie Johnson (a great gospel blues musician). This album is not so much the praise and worhip style, but without a doubt, Gospel Blues. The kind that makes you reflect on how you are living your life with respect to God's word. Praise God, I love REZ Band's "Innocent Blood".

I know it seems hard to imagine that once upon a time there was little or no Christian rock. You could count 'em one hand. Resurection Band, as they were known back in 1978 when they hit the scene with their first major release, Awaiting Your Reply, was one of the very first. Without them (and with qutie a few other pioneers,) we would not have much in the way of Christian rock.
Given the blues-oriented musical direction of Innocent Blood, the lyrics concern themselves primarily with issues of poverty ("Child of the Blues"), slavery ("80,000 Underground") the Devil ("Fiend or Foul") and the hope of Heaven ("Where Roses Grow"). The band also covers the song "Bargain," originally recorded by The Who, which became a number-one hit on Christian rock radio. However, in a contemporary twist, REZ also turns a critical eye toward American culture's obsession with youth in "Altar of Pain."
Innocent Blood's cover photograph is of an eight year old girl named Trisha who lived close to the Jesus People USA community in urban Chicago. She was tragically abducted by a child pornography ring who were never caught, and most disturbingly, Trisha was never seen again. In her memory, REZ confronted this subject on the album as well.

I first had this on cassette and lost it years ago. I was glad to see it on CD...."Where Roses Grow", "Right On Time" and their cover of The Who classic "Bargain" are my favorite songs.

I have this cd in my truck right now. Recently I have been re-exploring the Resurrection Band, the Rez Band and even some solo Glenn Kaiser and Glenn Kaiser band. The GKB and GK audios are very recent releases. I can't go through this cd song by song, since the cd is in my truck, but I did copy another listener's feeback which included many of the songs. Songs that stand out for me are The Who's Bargain, a cover version of course, Where Roses Grow, Rooster Crow, Right On Time -- a Wendi Kaiser vocal, and perhaps Child of the Blues. First, Baragain is quite good but it is a safe cover version and I don't recall any great emphasis on Jesus, which should have been the reason for the cover version. Anyway, the cover version is still well done. Right on Time is a very good late 80's Wendi Kaiser vocal. The song is good but not great. Basically it is enjoyable. Rooster Crow is a short Blues tune which is describing how Peter denied Christ after he was crucified. It is very good blues guitar and vocal. Where Roses Grow is a very good blues rock tune. Also I just remembered the song called Great God in Heaven. This is acappella I believe. It too is very enjoyable and well done. There are several songs on the cd that I would consider to be a bit on the noisy and screamy side. I had trouble figuring out what some of the songs were about. They seemed a bit obscure to me or too indirect. I feel this is a pretty honest review by me. Sometimes I lay it on too thick when I like a cd. I think three stars out of five gives it a thumbs up edge. Innocent Blood is NOT a bad cd and it is not a great cd. It is a decent cd that probably could have been better with more thought or more clarity. I would have avoided songs like Alter of Pain or 80,000 Underground. The screaming noisy songs don't much for me.Read more ›
