I love bands like Creed and Alterbridge. They are bands which had or has a message. Casting Crowns and Jeremy Camp are also very good in my opinion. I am a person who listened to Metallica and Guns 'N Roses. The music I listened to had a hard rock edge to it, but was filling my head with the wrong message.

I just went and bought SonicFlood's new CD, and I have to say, I am very, very, very impressed. I know everyone is talking about what Sonicflood was back then, but it is today, and today's youth need a voice. This CD is one of the best, that I have ever heard.

My favorite songs on the CD are, well, all of them. The two that really, really move me are Everlasting and Your Love Goes On Forever. All of the songs on the CD are A+++ Rated, so it is not only those 2. The CD is really well done, and if you love the bands of Collective Soul, Creed, and Alterbridge, this si the CD for you. I hope this SonicFlood keep their members together, and produce many more CD's, because this is slowly starting to turn my heart from a negative situation to a very positive situation.

Enjoy the Sonicflood of the past, but we are no in the past anymore, look forward to the new SonicFlood. They are a very special group, and I can't say enough positive things about them.

The Lord's Love does Go On Forever!!!

I was first introduced to SONICFLOOD while driving in the country a few years back and the song Resonate came on the radio. I've been a fan ever since. I am critical of what is known as the CCM genre because I think that many of the artists have put good Christian music into a kind of self-imposed musical ghetto. But, with bands like SONICFLOOD we have seen the message get out to the worst of us wretches. Their new CD THIS GENERATION is an enjoyable listen. Rick Heil has a unique singing voice that is complemented by a great band. I like the title track This Generation, but for me this CD shines with tunes like More Than Anything and Your Love Goes On Forever. On those two cuts the band really comes together as a unit. If half star ratings could be given this one is a 4 1/2. I would like to see the band move out of their comfort zone, as at times the theme while worthy and noble, gets a bit redundant. This one is a buy.

The pioneering worship band Sonicflood has returned with their latest disc "This Generation" - a new collection of modern worship songs that will without a doubt be making their way into church services in the near future.

As many already know, the original Sonicflood has not existed since 2000 when the band initially split up and late-comer Rick Heil decided to carry on with its namesake. The band is now currently on its third incarnation with Heil still at the helm.

"This Generation" was actually recorded while the band was still in transistion of band members. Because of this, the album is essentially a Rick Heil solo album with various musicians playing on the tracks. Original Sonicflood drummer Aaron Blanton returns as a guest playing on most of the album (this marks the first time an original member of the band has played on a Sonicflood album in nearly five years).

Musicially, the album displays a harder edge and is more guitar-dominated than previous efforts. This is unfortuantely the only good side to the album. Lyrically, there is nothing on this album that hasn't been said before. This isn't neccesarily a bad thing however, the lyrics to most of these songs are typical fodder for the standard typical praise and worship song. Chances are, if your familiar the lyric content of anything released by Hillsong, you'll know what to expect here.

The other downside to the album is the vocals. While Rick Heil isn't neccesarily a bad singer, his thin vocals tend to be overpowered by the heaviness of the music. It's almost like having an adult contemporary singer do heavy metal. While listening to this album for the first time, the thought that instantly hit this reviewer was "Man, this could be a really great song if someone else were singing it".

I was first introduced to SONIC FLOOd a few years back with the classic 1st release that included Jeff Deyo, among others. I purchased not only the "Flood's" CD, but also two solo efforts by Deyo and decided to leave both bands alone after discovering that both Deyo and Flood contained only had a few songs that really appealed to me. I then heard Sonic's modern song, "Your love goes on Forever" on a compilation CD and decided that these guys were worth another shot. I picked up Cry Holy and Resonate from a local used CD store and nearly threw both into the garbage! I liked the 1st two on Cry Holy (Cry Holy and Shelter), but could not get away from the serious nasal sound of Rick Heil's voice for some time. After more exposure and becoming slightly de-sensitized to the nasal cavity "resonating" sound of Heil's mouth, I discovered that I was quite taken in by the music. Following this, I turned back to Resonate for one last shot before relegating it into the cobweb pile and also discovered quite a few good songs on this compilation as well. Finally tracking down "This Generation" through Amazon, I was blown away by the vast improvement of Heil's voice (is he working with a teacher???) and love every song on this CD. I do not agree with the writer of another review on this particular work and feel strongly that Rick's voice adds a distinct quality to the Flood's latest endeavor and gives them a unique sound. Though I liked Sonic Flood's 1st album for a few songs, dare I say that in my opinion, "This Generation" blows the original flood out of the water! Way to go Rick and crew.
