This has got to be my choice for Christian rapcore/hard rock album of the year. I've been steadily wearing this CD out for the past five months or so, and I'll probably continue to do so until it's bequeathed to my kids. You want a description of what these guys sound like? Take a generous portion of Limp Bizkit, some early Green Day, and a small lump of Rage Against the Machine, put them all in a blender, and hit "Frappe". (Sprinkle on a little Beastie Boys for added flavor.) What you get is some of the most raucous hardcore, rap, and punk you'll ever hear. When lead vocal Lipsick makes the announcement at the end of the CD's old-school style intro that the Krutch is "gonna get this party started", they do just that, launching right into the frenzied first song, "Puppet". This song alone knocks Limp Bizkit's alleged best stuff right into the dirt. The party just gets wilder from there. While most of the songs have a rapcore flavor, the boys dip into pure punk a time or two with "When In Doubt" (a salute to teenage angst) and "Come Along". They also put a Christian spin on a rocking cover of EMF's club hit "Unbelievable". The last track ("Lift It") makes an excellent cool-down ballad for the heavenly adrenaline rush this album brings. DJ Dove (the album's co-producer) found a great talent in the Krutch boys, and once people start experiencing this CD, I think they'll be making heads bang for a long time to come.

The great thing about this band is they don't sound quite like anyone else in the genre. The bad thing about the band is that they sound like they want to.
The band does a great job emulating (and often improving on) all kinds of sounds ranging from alternative to hardcore, rapcore, funk, and punk... often all in the same tune. "Puppet" is POD mixed with Limp Bizket. "When In Doubt" is MXPX mixed with Eve 6. A friend confused "Set It Off" with Rage Against the Machine. In "Small Town" and parts of "Supafly", the singer croons like Our Lady Peace. "Lift It" is almost a Vineyard praise tune. And throughout is a pretty distinctive white-kid punk-rap that could be from several of the bands listed above. There's no one way to describe them, and they mix it together well.
Also, I like the lyrics. Some words, like "earthquake" and "party" show up a little too often to feel fresh by the last track, but generally the rhymes are interesting. I especially like that the whole album thematically mixes "having a rollickin' good time" and "Jesus" in the same place. Albums need to have more of this; joy is a big part of what Jesus is about. I imagine if someone had a so-called ghetto blaster at Mary's friend's wedding party, Jesus would've been spinning this album when He turned water to wine.
On the downside, I feel only "Puppet" and "When In Doubt" really come together completely. Tuning in to the other songs, I couldn't really say, "Ah, this is TFK's style." I'd be more likely to get mixed up in the various influences, which don't always fit together smoothly or transition well in a song.

A year ago, Thousand Foot Krutch released Phenomenon, and the world found them. They were nominated for a Dove Award for "Best Recorded Album of the Year", received a Vibe award for "Hard Music Album of the Year", and had tons of radio airplay. The disc sold over 100,000 copies and was supported by extensive touring.

What everyone didn't know, however, was that this was their second CD. Now they have re-released their first CD, Set It Off, adding six new tracks. Recorded five years ago and independently released, the songs really don't sound dated at all. If you're a fan of the "rapcore" style made popular by groups like POD and Pillar, you'll find a lot to like here.

"Everyone Like Me" starts the disc off and it's a brand new song. This one really does sound like it could have come from Phenomenon. I loved this one and it started the CD off perfectly.

"Unbelievable" is another great song. The chorus is really catchy and like every other song on this collection, it rocks! You've probably heard this one before on the radio.

The last five songs on the disc come from their 1998 indie release EP "That's What People Do". All of them are good, but it's easy to see the band was really just hitting their stride about this time.

At 18 songs you really can't go wrong with this disc. I've never heard the original CD so I can't speak for the improvement in quality thanks to the remastering, but this one sounds as good as Phenomenon. They definitely rap a lot more here than they did on their sophomore release, but that's not bad. While I like the direction they went in after this one, you'll need to add this one to your collection. If you're looking for another great Christian rock CD, grab Set It Off!

This was the last of the 3 TFK albums I bought, and I was surprised to discover that this is their best, and also most versatile. They sound like everyone from Linkin Park(only much better) to Sublime(again only better) to their new sound found on The Art of Breaking album. Trevor is a blessed and gifted musician, he is good at whatever style he decides to use.Unbelievable is the best song on the album, previously done by EMF in the mid '90s. The first song is good, sounds more like their new sound. The 4th song is a must listen too as well. I strongly recommend this album.
