5.0 out of 5 stars Most In-Depth & Solid Release To Date April 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I must say I am very impressed by this release from Thousand Foot Krutch. I was originally teetering between a 3.5 and a 4 for this album, but I now today I feel it's a solid 4.5 (which rounds up to 5). It seems there are 4 concurrent themes running through this album: We are the ones who can make a difference in this world, standing up to resistance, what really matters in life, and this world is evil but as Christians we have a hope in God.

This is the largest collection of solid songs I've heard from this band to date. It's so solid in fact that I had to buy it even though I haven't liked a TFK album completely since Phenomenon. I've always enjoyed individual songs from Thousand Foot Krutch, but I never felt they went far enough or presented as cohesive an offering as this one.

It's groovy, hard, heavy, light in certain places without being too flaky or gimmicky, and overall, it seems like they put a lot of time into making this album. You can really tell too. Most of the songs on here are really catchy, and there's really no filler. Every song is more than listenable and solid. It's true that they aren't the most original band ever - it's not like they created this genre themselves, but that's been the case from the beginning. They found a way to develop their own sound, and the traditional TFK sound is definitely apparent throughout this whole album.

Their songwriting has definitely improved with this release. From having a few standout songs to have nearly all of them standout - I'd say that TFK has gone the extra mile with this one. The one song that had me thinking, "What are they trying to say?" was "I Get Wicked." It seems to be about someone saying that TFK couldn't do what they were trying to do, standing up to that, and proving them wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars TFK really Light's up the Sky on this one April 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Having supported Thousand Foot Krutch on Kickstarter, I've had The End is Where We Begin for over a week now, and have listened to each track many, many times. So, let me say that this is an amazing album. Currently, each song has been played 40 times since I got it April 6th. If that's not enough proof to how incredible this album is, allow me to elaborate.

Without any music from Skillet or TFK (my favorite bands) in over two years, I was very anxious for The End is Where We Begin to release. I was even afraid that it wouldn't live up to my high expectations. Well, it did, actually, it surpassed them. The End is Where We Begin is so varied, so unique from not only their music, but rock music in general that it caught me off-guard. Most bands tend to have a very similar sound throughout their whole album, and while TFK retains their signature style, I feel like song is unique. Not two songs sound overly similar. Maybe this is due to the breath-taking sound that Trevor, Joel, and Steve have crafted for themselves, but the use of acoustics, strings, and percussions are so good that it really blows you away. And the lyrics, phew, they are something. In most albums, you can pick out at one or two 'filler' songs. Not here. Every song has a meaning for you to uncover. The choruses aren't just catchy, they also grab you. If you really listen, the lyrics will convict you, encourage you, and pick you up, all while tying into the universal theme of the album; Be the Change. Here's my breakdown of each song.

The Introduction - A very fitting opening for the album. Some may find it cheesy, but I think it perfectly sets the mood for what's to come. 9/10

We Are - A heavy, rousing beginning, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

4.0 out of 5 stars A familiar but no less enjoyable TFK record May 2, 2012
By JoeAZ92
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Canadian rockers Thousand Foot Krutch have gathered quite a following over their years together, releasing what many fans consider their best recording to date, Welcome To the Masquerade, near the end of 2009. After parting ways with Tooth & Nail records, recording new music independently, and rather successfully funding the release of said music through Kickstarter, the band has now unleashed their new album, The End Is Where We Begin. TFK's latest release is a solid and enjoyable rock record on its own merits, even though a lot of it sounds pretty familiar.

Stylistically The End... goes back to the band's roots in many ways, especially with several rapped verses. The guitars are still nice and crunchy and there's a lot of fist-pumping fun to be had listening to these songs. The album is well-rounded with plenty of enjoyable rockers and a few great soft tracks to even things out a bit. Trevor McNevan's versatility as a singer is also especially impressive- I find the raps to be hit-and-miss depending on the song (mostly because the lyrics are are generally weaker in these sections), but he absolutely nails the rockers and softens things up powerfully for the soft moments. In many ways, these songs sound pretty familiar even to one who has not extensively listened to the band's past work, but even so they are all very good.

TFK hardly misses a beat in delivering great songs on The End... The rockers are some of my favorites I've heard from TFK, especially the infectious "Courtesy Call," the flooring single "Let the Sparks Fly," and the diverse and simply fantastic "War of Change." The softer songs are also very good, especially the emotionally charged and worshipful "Be Somebody" and the unique and intriguing "Fly On the Wall.
