Biography

Band: CAEDMON’S CALL
Album: Raising Up The Dead

Caedmon’s Call is all grown up. We met them in a college dorm room, played and sang along with their acoustic guitars and folksy harmonies, and nodded our heads to their lyrics, which expressed the kind of faith that went beyond our churchy roots. The band that felt like the kid in the youth group who fought through the ... Read more in Amazon's Caedmon's Call Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Overdressed long Overdue August 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Overdressed Long Overdue

This album by Caedmon's Call is the best album that they have released since leaving their independent roots and moving to a major label! Their first self-titled album came close as it contained a large number of their indy songs but wasn't quite as raw.

I remember sitting in a young adults class at Second Baptist in 92 - one of the only times I ever went there - and they happened to be playing a set from their then new album My Calm//Your Storm. I immediately snatched a copy up that day and it has remained at the top of my CC list of albums. However, this album comes very very very close.

Many Caedmon's Call fans have been waiting for the sound found on this album to return to Caedmon's Call for several years. Some will say it's the return of Derek Webb paired with Cliff Young and Danielle's voice. I believe this new album shares something from the independent albums and that is consistency of good lyric writers. I do not want to knock the writers on their previous albums but those writers were not why CC listeners listen to CC. MC//YS and Coffee split the lyric writing duty between two very capable writers - challenging intellectual Aaron Tate and inspiring Derek Webb. I found it refreshing to have lyrics that challenged my thinking and encouraged extracurricular reading that many of the songs pointed too. This album, Overdressed, shares duty mainly between 2 very talented writers - Derek Webb (2 of the 14) and Andrew Osenga. Derek's wife also contributes some very nice pieces to this album as well but the continuity and flow of this album is clearly centered between Andrew and Derek.

The album begins with a tune by Derek called "Trouble" and it's a nice start to this album and happens to be the title track.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOME PROBLEMS, BUT STILL . . . September 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It seems to me that this CD doesn't have the passion, freshness, and memorable cuts that others have. No major gems here. Having said that, It's still worth buying and listening to. They're just that good. By the way, bringing Derek back was not necessarily what they needed. He's gone off in another direction (a good one, though) and does not seem to be in the groove with the rest of the group. I love Caedmons and was hoping for an in the park home run, but got at best a triple. Granted, though, a triple for Caedmons would be a grand slam for other Christian folk-rock groups!

5.0 out of 5 stars Caedmon's Call is back! September 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I haven't been very impressed with thier past couple of albums, so I was elated with the way "overdressed" turned out. It was great to hear Derek back in the mix, but the addition of Andrew Osenga (who in my opinion is one of the most underrated song writers in music)took the cake-and that is saying a lot from me because Derek and Sandra are my favorites! Caedmon's is back to thier old magic with deep, though-provoking lyrics and beautiful melodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-rounded September 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is the best Caedmon's Call album yet. The lyrics are powerful as always, but this time they show a greater maturity as they address issues of family ("Sacred"), marriage ("Love Grows Love"), and global responsibility ("Two Weeks in Africa"), without giving up their expertise in pondering difficult situations ("There is a Reason") and commentary on society ("Expectations"). Yes, the music is wonderful, very acoustic and passionate, but the real power comes when you listen to the words which speak to your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you like old school caedmon's, this album is for you September 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
i've been a caedmon's fan for YEARS. i have every album they ever put out. seen them in concet too many times to count derek was always my favorite member, but lately his music has gone in a direction that isn't so much my style(though i loved she must and shall go free). well, welcome back the old derek on this album! when i first heard trouble, it brought me back to the first listening of "My calm, your storm" or their self titled album(i call it the brown cd) guitars, organs, ect..... and by the second song i was thinking, huh, this has to be written by aaron tate, they must've made up. but after looking at the liner notes saw that andrew wrote it. mmm...he must have been really heavily influenced by aaron's "take to the world".

i have never thought that danielle had a very good voice, but somehow when she sings with derek, their voices seem to sound good together. though i would've preferred to hear derek and sandra do "share in the blame"

personally i think that the brown cd(self titled cd) is the best cd they have ever released...i mean, i just don't want coffee has to be the best song ever written. but this is a pretty good trip back to the old style of caedmon's call....and helps me to foget the lame "long line of leavers"

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Caedmon's Call August 29, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Overdressed is a refreshing harkening back to what makes CC themselves. The welcome home to Derek Webb has great effects on this project. I especially enjoyed All Across The Western World and Love Grows Love--cause I'm just a sap like that!! I only recently obtained a copy of My Calm//Your Storm and intentionally listened to the entire CC discography in anticipation of getting this cd. Overdressed is definitely CC at their core of their distinctive sound. The lyrics are insightful, challenging, and fun to sing along in places as well. The music is the folk-rock driven sound that made the group. I hope they keep this kind of material going on as long as God gives them the insight and ability!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Album, Not The Absolute Best, Though.
Overdressed is a good album. You really can't deny this. I find "Hold the Light," and "Sacred" are the best songs on this album. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Most of the lyrics pander to typical, cheesy Christian radio airplay
I have been an avid Caedmon's Call fan for over 10 years. But this album was a great disappointment to me. They seem to have lost their musical rawness and lyrical subtlety. Read more

Caedmon's Call is capable of more than this. Nothing will beat their debut CD. How many band members do they need? "Sacred" is the best song. Read more

Ahhh, Caedmon's Call. I still love to pop in their self-titled album (still one of my top ten Christian albums of all time) and My Calm/Your Storm into my CD player. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and enjoyable.
I think this is a really good album. I'd give their self-titled debut and "40 Acres" 5 stars. This one I gave four.

The good: Having Derek back really is AWESOME. Read more
