Biography

Considering the average shelf life of most bands these days, it’s a particularly rare quality when a group not only sticks together for the long haul but maintains a strong sense of mission in the process. For Sanctus Real who began sixteen years ago in the basement of the home belonging to guitarist Chris Rohman’s parents, their purpose has never wavered even as musical trends ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sanctus Real [Pieces of a Real Heart] March 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Popularly known for its captivating recordings and live performances, Toledo, Ohio-based Sanctus Real's breakthrough album, The Face of Love, released in April 2006, landing at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Heetseekers chart and amassing a string of radio hits including the No. 1 songs "I'm Not Alright" and "Don't Give Up." While The Face of Love was inspired by real-life heartache and rediscovered joy, the band's fourth studio release, We Need Each Other, marked a completion of that healing process and is a call for unity. Award-winning band Sanctus Real gave fans an early preview of its upcoming, fifth studio album Pieces of A Real Heart with its brand new song, "Forgiven," which has already been a Top 10 hit at radio.

If you like the new, softer sounding "Forgiven," then you will absolutely love the entire new album. Personally, I'd say Sanctus Real's songs have matured along with the band members, similar to Switchfoot in that way. However, if you're looking for edgy rock songs like "Everything About You," "I'm Not Alright" and "Turn On The Lights" you won't really find them on this album with maybe the exception of "Take Over Me," which is one of the rockers on the album. If you liked radio hits "Something Heavenly," "Face Of Love" and "Don't Give Up," then you'll love this album, which is chock full of radio-friendly yet very personal and engaging songs including "These Things Take Time," "Lead Me" and "The Redeemer." "These Things Take Time" got me moving in a similar way to hit song "Don't Give Up." "The Way The World Turns" completes a trilogy of songs that all focus on the topic of faithfulness and the challenges in our walks as Christians to accept and give forgiveness, and also seeking Truth and Hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars The entire family enjoyed this album July 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I orginally purcahsed this record after hearing 'Lead Me' on Air1. I was pleasantly suprised at how well the entire album is. Even my husband who doesn't really like Christian music enjoys the song Lead Me and the entire album. Currently the album is in the 16 year old sons room.
I am looking forward to more music from this artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it March 30, 2010
By RB
Format:MP3 Music
I am very, very thankful I purchased this album - specifically the Deluxe Edition. As far as the musical feel goes, if you like Sanctus Real, you certainly won't be disappointed. The feel of the album is similar to their more recent albums, except better: it's "rock," but not in the obnoxious sense. Pieces of a Real Heart has a lot of songs that I'll listen to over and over - not just one or two good ones.

The thing I really like about this album, though, is that it has that extra "something" that separates good albums from great ones: quality, authentic subject matter. The songs are honest and hopeful, acknowledging difficult, real issues in life but seeking Christ in the midst of them. I would imagine that this album was as encouraging for the guys in the band to record as it is for us to listen to.

Argh...I don't have time to do a full review right now, but here are a few final observations:

* This is easily my favorite Sanctus Real album since Fight the Tide. I might even like it better than Fight the Tide.
* I would particularly recommend this album for people feeling dry in their faith, disillusioned (whether by unanswered prayers, politics, injustice, or otherwise), trapped by sin, or questioning their faith. There's a lot of hope in this album.
* It's also a good album for young adults seeking to maintain a meaningful relationship with Christ as they enter deeper and deeper into the "real world."
* In my opinion, the acoustic versions are just as good as the original songs. Depending on what mood I'm in, sometimes I actually prefer the acoustic versions to the originals. It's certainly worth spending the extra bit of money for the Deluxe Edition. For me, the acoustic songs aren't just extras - they're necessaries..

Hope this was helpful. If not, listen for yourself - it's worth it.

I have to say this band has hit it on the head for any Christian who feels it when they fall short of perfection. We strive. We cry. We get back up. The music is inspirational, the words are humbling. I plug it in to get my day stared = )

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good February 16, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I just created a Pandora station for Switchfoot and what was the 2nd group that it played? Sanctus Real. I liked the song so much that went directly to Amazon and downloaded the album. The entire album is awesome. It is definitely a blessing to me as I'm going through some difficult times. The songs lift me up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! January 20, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is probably their best album in my opinion. Not only are all of the songs great, but this Deluxe version includes acoustic versions of many of the songs. For those unfamiliar with their sound I would say it compares well to Goo Goo Dolls' sound. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Brainer! March 19, 2011

Its simple if it says Sanctus Real on the CD just buy it. The lead singer has a distinctive voice backed up by an equally awesome band. Praise them and support them by buying legal downloads of their music.
