Editorial Reviews

After two highly acclaimed albums Tenth Avenue North takes a bold creative leap forward on its new album, The Struggle. Inviting fans all over the country to lend their voices to the process as they recorded this album in cities along its tour route, the songs explore themes of forgiveness, redemption and grace. "We really fostered the dance of both the music and the lyric while thematically unpacking the idea of what it means to struggle," says lead vocalist Mike Donehey. "We are free to struggle, but don't need to struggle to be free. It's about the permission to struggle but also a challenge not to stay there." With The Struggle, the band offers up lyrically substantive songs people have come to expect from Tenth Avenue North.

I've been following TAN for a few years now. Their heart for worshipping Jesus and the authenticity of their lyrics that reveal their own brokenness, of which I can identify with, has drawn me to their music. Their songs often remind me of how I am in desperate need of Jesus.

I've seen this band grow musically and spiritually. "The Struggle" is a work of art that showcases the talents of the new band members, Rueben and Brendon, while keeping the signature sounds and in-depth lyrics that the band is known for.

Highlights: "Worn", "Don't Stop The Madness", "You Do All Things Well", "Where Life Will Never Die"

With The Struggle, the band offers up lyrically substantive songs people have come to expect from Tenth Avenue North.

The opening set of tracks are all among the best songs I've heard on any album in the past few years. From the beginning notes of "Shadows," I was hooked by the lyrical and musical intensity of the album. The opener kicks off the musical journey immediately relating to listeners, "We're born into the longing," which leads to the confessional chorus--"I've been running / chasing nothing but shadows / Oh Lord please come / raise my dead heart...You can keep me from chasing after the shadows." The great Brit-rock style guitar riffs are found throughout this substantive album. "The Struggle" has more vertical lyrics: "Why do I still give in to temptation...I will trust You, take You at Your Word." That leads to the freedom we can all proclaim as believers in the sincere chorus, "Hallelujah, we are free to struggle / we're not struggling to be free / Your blood bought it / makes us children / children drop your chains and sing." Amen!

I just started listening to Christian music extensively in the last couple of months. This CD is so soothing, spiritual, and to the heart. I like the way this group sounds, regardless of what type of genre of music they are categorized in. The song "Worn" makes me cry every time I hear it, it is a masterpiece. If you need to forgive someone in your life, listen to "Losing" and you will understand why the need to do that is necessary. The Lord God has blessed this group and along with Michael W Smith, they are my favorite Christian rock band.

I bought this album for the song Worn, but soon found out how wonderful, inspiring and peaceful the rest of the album was. Enjoy it more each time I listen.

I could say a million things about the CD...as far as lyrics, I'd say the scored extremely high. Worn and The Struggle are my favorite songs on this CD. The heartfelt lyrics really show where these guys stand. As far as music, you'll find the typical 'Tenth Avenue North' sound as before. If you're a CCM fan, you can't go wrong here.

Not as good as the previous 2 albums they did, but I'm sure it will grow on me as time goes.
