It should also be noted that Andy Hunter has retained his amazing Christian message, not selling out one bit. He is truly a blessing to world of electronica... Don't even hesitate, buy this CD now. The sooner you own it, the sooner you can experience this heaven-on-a-disc.
Its one and only downside? With just 6 tracks at 43 minutes, you'll be begging for more!
I became familiar with the album through the 4-track advance CD, which begins with "To Life, To Love," a song that I think is the perfect opener for the album. This commercial version begins with "Open My Eyes," a track that knocks you out of your chair right off the bat. On my own mix tape, I put "Open My Eyes" in the middle, after building up to its intense energy through previous tracks. But there are times when I'm in high gear and "Open My Eyes" is exactly what I want to hear first when I listen to Andy Hunter. "To Life To Love" works well as a final track too, though!
Christine Glass, one of my favorite singers, appears again on this Andy Hunter release, as she did on his debut. (She sings on "Alive" here.) Thanks, Andy, for having her come back! May she always be a part of your albums!
My one disappointment in this album is that I don't like the lyrics quite as well as those on the first album. But there is still enough here lyrically that it is still something that can keep you vertically focused.
One of my favorite DJs is Tiesto, a DJ similar in style to Andy Hunter. But no DJ tops Andy Hunter in my book. Both Exodus and Life are superb albums that I will continue to listen to, and they'll never get old. Both of them get me on my feet dancing like no other albums.
What is really remarkable about this EP is that all the tracks has its own flavor, style, and are completely different from each other, yet still maintaining Andy Hunter's signature ambient sound which all fans of Andy Hunter should be familiar with.
All of the tracks seem to fall into place flawlessly and with grace. None of it seems out of place. The start is hard and strong and as the CD goes on, it slowly becomes melodic, airy and light. It's incredibly pleasing to the ear.
It starts off explosively with "Open My Eyes" which fills you up with adrenaline right from the start and the intensity continues with the second track "Come On". After that it slows down and the track "Alive" comes in. "Alive" fills in for "Amazing" from his previous album except this is 90 times better. The vocals are great and the entire song is structured like Hybrid - If I Survive (Wider Angle, awesome CD). I'm a huge fan of Hybrid so naturally I loved this track. The next track "Wonderful" is well...wonderful. It's very light and seems to fall into place instead of sounding forced. The next track "Lifelight" has characteristics of BT and his style yet still having its own distinctiveness and flavor to it. The last track "To Life, To Love" is a masterpiece. I love this track and its message about loving each other and working together. It's an appropriate end to the CD.
I wish there were some more tracks, but I'm glad that at least he released something instead of nothing at all.Read more ›
I put the CD into the player and waited for a nice intro but just about had a heart attack as it played the first track. Why had I left the volume on so loud yesterday. Man, that one started with energy! Called Open My Eyes, the first piece will do just that if you decided to play it first thing in the morning. You get directly involved into Andy's Universe.
The second track, Come On, is just as fast paced, maybe even more. Definitely trying to keep you on your toes.
Then I'm Alive, the third track, brings you into a quieter mode that lets you enjoy the feeling of the two previous tracks "I fell on top of the world"
Wonderful comes next and it's probably the one that I like the least in the EP. It's advantage is that it lets me know that the next track is coming
My favorite track, "Lifelight", is just the song that I need to listen to every time I have to focus on whatever I'm doing. I don't know why, maybe it's the switching of pace, or the general dynamic of the song; but I just love it! It's the song played the most on my ITunes.
As for the last track To Life To Love, well it just musically concludes a pretty good CD.
Buy it, it's worth it. And I hope Andy Hunter comes up with an LP soon.
