Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2004, Rebecca, Alyssa and Lauren Barlow have continuously inspired fans with such intimate portraits, as with their sophomore set, "Another Journal Entry" and with such bold challenges as 2007's, "How Can We Be Silent". For BarlowGirl the focus is always on sharing what God has placed on their hearts. They continue to do just that with "Love & War". According to Becca Barlow: "I think there are two continuous messages that we are trying to get across on this album: One is that time is short and we don't have time to not follow the Lord. We don't have time to do the things we desire to do. It's time to be bold and follow the calling God has in your life. The second message is that it's all about being in love with the Lord and about that relationship with Him. If we don't have that relationship with Him, we can't have the boldness."

The first several songs build on the love and war theme with the upbeat opener "Come Alive" with the cry to "wake up, get out there's no time to waste now" which really gets to the heart of the matter including the charge to "be the change we've all been waiting for". "Open Heavens" keeps the theme of waking up going with the lyrics "can you feel the Spirit move you, calling all hearts to wake". Both songs really grab me and fire me up to stand up for God and for my beliefs. Then, first single "Beautiful Ending" hit me even harder with the challenging "it scares me to think that I would choose my life over You, My selfish heart divides me from You, It tears us apart". The song is beautiful and encourages me to live for God. If you are looking for this album's "Never Alone", "I Need You To Love Me" or "Here's My Life", this is it.

Barlowgirl has again put together an album with solid Christian lyrics and a great sound.

This one has songs that range from rock to a much lighter sound. There is some real diversity in type while maintaining a consistent theme. The focus of this album is that time is running out and it's time for Christians to make their mark. The message is a challenge that gets the listener's attention.

There are many very good songs on this CD. I particularly like 'Running Out of Time' and 'Beautiful Ending'. The latter is really a must have song for any fan of rock in general and/or Christian rock in particular. This is well worth getting.

I got hooked on BarlowGirl with their first two albums, BarlowGirl and Another Journey Entry. They were both full of upbeat, catchy tunes and beautiful ballads all with strong, personal lyrics. I have to admit, How Can We Be Silent was a disappointment for me, with most of the songs being slower, and they just didn't get to me like the previous albums. So when I heard that BarlowGirl was coming out with their fourth album, I hoped that it would not be a sequel to How Can We Be Silent.

And it defintely isn't. Many of the songs are fast and fun and just overall lighter than How Can We Be Silent - at least as far as the melodies go. The lyrics are as beautiful and meaningful as they have always been, and there are songs on the album for almost every stage a Christian can go through with God...the good times, the hard times, and the hopeless times. They also focus on the war between the world vs. God and who is getting our attention, which is something all Christians need to be reminded of. The slow songs are absolutely beautiful, and the harmonies in this album are awesome as always, but BarlowGirl never lets us down in that sense. I can't even decide what my favorite songs are at this point because I love all of them. BarlowGirl, you've done it again.

In "Love & War," BarlowGirl could've delivered a mindless replica of its previous albums. But the artists made the right choice: They used this opportunity to take the next step in their musical evolution. This album marks the end of the band's teen days.

This CD reflects a sense of maturity and sensibility that give the band credibility as a long-term centerpiece of the industry. It has the feel and sound of BarlowGirl's previous albums with the lyrical maturity and melodic grace of industry veterans. The album is still undeniably rock-centric, but the Barlow sisters never take it too far. It's still grounded in rock-pop, but it cannot believably be criticized as teen pop. It's better than that. Smarter.

The first single, "Beautiful Ending," is a must have. Excellent touch. "Sing Me a Love Song" avoids cliche and accomplishes a catchy sound.

The hidden gems, however, are "Open Heavens" and "Tears Fall." "Open Heavens" weaves together rock and soft pop seamlessly. But "Tears Fall" is the stunning piece of the album. A major surprise. It's a soft ballad that steals the spotlight on the album. It almost hints at the band's future direction and continued musical evolution.

I thought the album before HCWBS was not only a great christian album and great album in all. One of my all time favorites. And was hoping they would continue with that style and do a HCWBS part2 kinda. But they did AJE part2. But I do love AJE and I wasnt dissapointed at all. And I remember more of their fans not thinking as much of HCWBS so it's the right diretion for the band. Great christian messages with the same upbeat rock. Worth it's cost. I just wonder if their will be an expanded editon later down the road????
