We began this worship project, IT IS WELL, by asking one question, “Can we do something unique?” There are many worship records; however, we were driven by the challenge to do something different, something Kutless. Although we’ve done a worship-oriented album (“Strong Tower”), we are in a different place right now and wanted this project to reflect our ... Read more in Amazon's Kutless Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Transitional Album June 24, 2008
By Derek
Format:MP3 Music
I've been a fan of Kutless since 2004 and have heard every song they've ever done. That being said, I was expecting quite a bit from this album and while some of those expectations were met, some of them were not. There's enough here to keep me around for their next album, but not as much as I was hoping for/expecting. Most of the songs are too short, and there's a few that I wish they would have done more with. I def wouldn't buy this album in it's entirety but I would purchase several songs off it.

A small breakdown of the songs:

The Feeling - Great way to open the album, but it was too short.

Sleeping City - Great instrumental, but again it was too short.

TKTYA - Best song on the album, period. They didn't make this the title track for nothing. One of the best songs I've ever heard them play live as well. Def get this one.

TDATC - Would have been an even better song if they would have went with diff riffs/lines, but the bridge right before the breakdown [and the breakdown itself] near the end are awesome. Get this one.

Complete - I prefer the radio version cuz it's shorter and packs more of an emotional punch.

The Rescue - Great song, great vocals, great breakdown. Get this one.

Promise You - Great song that gives me chills [esp during the soloing] every time. Def get this one.

Guiding Me Home - I thought this was gonna be another 'All The Words'-type ballad, but I was pleasantly surprised when they took it in a diff direction. Get this one.

Overcoming Me - The only part I like about this song is the SHORT breakdown near the end. If they would have went with diff riffs/lines in this one, it prolly would have been better received by me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "new" Kutless, and that's a good thing. July 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
A lot has happened to the Portland, Oregon-based Christian rock band Kutless in the last two years since the release of their third studio album Hearts Of The Innocent. Founding guitarist Ryan Shrout left the group to spend more time caring for his infant daughter who had been diagnosed with a serious disease. The band's guitar technician Nick DePartee steps in to fill his shoes during live shows and eventually becomes a full-time member. Frontman Jon Micah Sumrall suffers some near career-ending injuries. All of this and more has contributed to a Kutless that sounds vastly different from what most of us have become accustomed to.

So how exactly does this "new" Kutless sound? In a word: amazing.

Certainly, you can tell that at the core this is still the same Kutless we know and love. However, this is far and away their most experimental and mature album released to date. The integration of new guitarist DePartee into the fold has brought a decidedly different sound to the band's music. I hate to describe it as "arena rock" because that almost always implies the 80's hair metal cheese factor, but it's easy to see what the band had in mind when writing these songs: to simply rock each and every arena they perform them in.

The album kicks off with "The Feeling," a short but tasty track that is more or less a call to arms for Kutless fans to come together and rock out for Christ. This track was available for free download from the band's website for a while, and it sounds like nothing they've ever done before. The instrumental piece "Sleeping City" follows, and although it too is rather short it is also beautiful and somewhat haunting at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kutless Rocks. July 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Kutless has returned with "To Know That You're Alive", their first studio album since 2006's "Hearts of the Innocent". Besides being their first album with new guitarist Nick DePartee, "TKTYA" also finds the band stretching their melodic hard rock style into new territories and breaking new ground in the process. It almost seems as if Kutless had been working up to an album like this their entire career and finally reached it with abundance.
Like always, Kutless's Christ-centred lyrics are at the forefront and singer Jon Micah Sumrall's voice is full of emotional delivery and passion. Also at the center of the music is some dynamic string arrangements which dominate a majority of the tracks. The use of strings is quite reminicent of some of the more recent music by bands like Skillet.
Nearly every track on "To Know That You're Alive" is a standout. Among the many highlights are the title track and it's instrumental prelude "Sleeping City", "Complete", "The Rescue", "Guiding me Home" and the neo-progressive "Dying to Become" which is quite unlike anything Kutless has ever done.
Hands down, this is yet another solid album from Kutless. The band has definitely has turned a corner with this album and has displayed a wealth of new musical ideas without compromising their Christ-centered message.
"To Know That You're Alive" could very well be Kutless's best album to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best All-Around Christian Rock Album October 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw the cover of this album and liked the artwork and then sampled a few tracks. I loved a number of them and thought I'd buy the album. I can truly say I got more than I bargained for with this purchase. I really love the orchestral ballads (Dying To Become), the smooth songs and the harder hitting songs. This is my first Kutless album but I will definitely get their next one. I wanted a hardcore album but I found that I appreciated the great balance of alternative and hard rock themes and lyrics used in this album. Truly an excellent album.
