The band does so yet again on its third Reunion Records album The Struggle, a 12-song collection that explores the themes of grace, forgiveness and redemption through thought-provoking lyrics anchored in an adventurous sonic landscape.

In the two years since its national label debut with Over And Underneath, Tenth Avenue North has become a radio fixture with back to back hit songs "Love Is Here" and "By Your Side" and back to back Dove Awards for New Artist of the year and Song of the year. Tenth Avenue North's anticipated sophomore project, The Light Meets the Dark, is a great collection of confessional and authentic expressions of faith. It appears that the success of the band has allowed them to creatively express themselves and for me that has really paid off with an improved second album. The album's themes are brokenness, healing and mercy. Once again the songs are poignant and powerful, and in recording the new tunes, the band brings a more seasoned level of musicianship and intensity, reminding me of Robbie Seay Band, Coldplay and Seabird lyrically and musically.

The first single "Healing Begins" encapsulates the theme of the new album. It's where the title of the record comes from. It's basically about confession -- confessing your sins to one another that you might be healed, which is a scary thing to do. You can believe in God and love God, but confessing the things that you keep secret and hold on to -- that keep you tied to your past and weigh you down --confessing those things is not easy. The opening four tracks, all released as singles already, are all among the best songs I've heard on any album in the past few years. "Strong Enough To Save" and "You Are More" kept me hooked lyrically as Mike's vocals are very engaging and I was able to relate to every theme. "The Truth Is Who You Are" really grabbed me musically as the guitar part at the end of the song reminds me of "Fix You" by Coldplay, one of my all-time favorite songs.

After meeting with these guys twice -- talking with them and praying with them -- I'm totally sold on their hearts for ministry! Their songs reflect their genuine desire to bring freedom into the lives of all who hear these soothing tones and creative guitar work. I bought this new CD at their first release party in Seattle only a few days ago and have listened to it several times already. The depth of the message of each song reflects the depth of character in the lives of each of these band members. They all encourage us to bring our brokenness to our Savior who has done it all already for us -- we can rest in His eternal love for us and let the healing begin in our lives.

In fact, Healing Begins was an excellent choice for their first single release with a powerful message behind its gentle melody. The band also played Strong Enough to Save, You are More, and Oh My Dear at their concert last week, leading us to speculate which one of these could be their next release. I love the power behind both the chorus and the message of Strong Enough to Save. You are More in my opinion will be their challenger for the next Song of the Year Dove Award -- it's so encouraging and lifts us out of the rut we fall into -- it's not about what we've done, but what has been done for us. How can anyone listen to that song and not feel the joy rising in their hearts, bringing a smile to any downcast face? Although Oh My Dear is Mike's favorite song that he's ever written and a beautiful one at that, it may be too long for a radio release, much like my favorite song of theirs from their last CD -- Times. Empty My Hands will also be another candidate for the radio, but then again an argument could be made for just about every song on this CD to become an individual hit.

Overall, this is an incredible album, and Tenth Avenue North definitely improved musically and continued their message, furthering the gospel through their music. "Over and Underneath" was more musically cliche, and probably more "catchy", but Tenth Avenue North really takes a risk with more creative music on this album. The strings and piano on "The Light Meets the Dark" are phenomenal, giving a more emotional feel. "Healing Begins" has a bit of a strange intro, but it is a powerful song with the main message of the album - dropping your walls and confessing to others in order for the light to meet the dark. "Strong Enough to Save" is my favorite song on the album so far. It is extremely catchy and has very empowering lyrics. "You are More" will, without a doubt, be their next radio hit! The lyrics remind me of Jonny Diaz's "More Beautiful You". "The Truth is Who You Are" is incredibly deep, and along with "Empty My Hands", is probably the deepest, most emotional song on the album. "All the Pretty Things" is the perfect song for an American society obsessed with "things". "Any Other Way" reveals a great Christian paradox, that the only way to truly love is with "hurt" and "pain". Once again, Tenth Avenue North displays their awesome maturity and knowledge of Biblical principles. "On and On" is a beautiful piano ballad, moving into the heartbreaking "Hearts Safe (Any Other Way)". The chorus cries out "Why?" repeatedly, asking God why a brother or close friend who grew up in church can no longer see God the way the band does. However, it is a hopeful prayer for God to open his eyes. "House of Mirrors" follows and exhibits an awesome metaphor. Perhaps my favorite line on the album is "But a house made of a mirrors never helps you see any clearer. It's yourself you can't see past.Read more ›
