The first time through I liked it. The second time listening, I let it soak in and I cried through Won't Give Up and Moving Forward. Caleb's writing and the musicianship that these three guys have together is nothing short of brilliant. Gentlemen, please keep making beautiful music and sharing your stories with the world. Amazon customers, please keep buying.

This record is a great experience from start to finish. The melodies are fresh and catchy. This album is a no question purchase for fans of upbeat indie rock and the likes of Two Door Cinema Club. Great variety and quality of production makes this record one that should not be missed!

I’ve seen these guys doing music together since they were young, and I see a lot of growth in this their debut album; 14 solid and cohesive tracks, each song a musical powerhouse with a well crafted and intentional lyric.
beautiful production with a diverse pallet of sound, including a hammered dulcimer in Moving Forward and a kid’s choir in Roll with the Punches (not to mention the hawk calls on 2:20). Produced in part by the music wizard Ben Shive, one can hear flecks of his musical genius throughout the album.
One thing I've noticed as I replay the album is the well-ordered track list which tells of a journey from innocence to sorrow to hope & redemption through the One "reaching back for the lonely".
I think so far the song Glorious is my favorite, I love how the lyrics and music naturally blend together.
It's been a long time coming but totally worth the wait; I am immensely enjoying this album.

I'm a singer-songwriter, and I have a strong taste for the kind of music that I like. Typically I download songs one at a time on iTunes or Amazon because CDs don't usually all contain good songs, but all of the songs on the CD are fresh and uplifting.

Two of the band members are sons of the Christian artist Steven Curtis Chapman. The depth of the lyricism in the songs along with the dynamic sounds of their music was what really pulled me in. These guys are the real deal, and I hope they release more CDs to come in the future.

I've listened to this CD non-stop while driving for the last week.

This is a fantastic album by a great up-and-coming band. “When I Was Younger” includes lots of catchy pop-rock tunes, but also showcases great vocals, instrumentation, and arrangements. Each track on the album is different enough musically from the others to keep you interested, and there is a depth and maturity to the writing that is refreshing. Colony House is one of those exceptional bands who can tell a story with their music, and if you listen to the album from start to finish, the individual songs come together to make a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

The album starts with Silhouettes, a carefree pop tune great for singing along as you “drive on down the road” with the windows down. As the album progresses the songs get deeper and explore themes of youth and innocence, tragedy and loss, guilt and shame, and the struggle to find hope. But “When I Was Younger” doesn’t end there, and the last few songs of the album tie together the thread of hope running through it all, drawing on themes of redemption and forgiveness. Fortunately, Colony House walks a fine line and manages to keep things from ever feeling overly clichéd or sentimental, and the earnestness and honesty of the writing is compelling throughout, a real testament to their songwriting ability.

In summary, this album is a good bet if you just want a catchy tune to tap your foot to, but it also succeeds on a much deeper level. “When I Was Younger” is easily my favorite new album of 2014 and, I hope, the first of many good things to come. I will be the first to buy the next album Colony House releases, and I highly recommend that you give them a listen.

I can't even begin to describe how perfect this album is. If you have even the slightest thought of buying it, don't think twice and just do it. It's the best album i've ever heard in my life and every single song is a masterpiece. Calebs songwriting and vocals are on point and are truly something special. If it was just reviewed on the musical aspect it would be enough to highly recommend, but the lyrics are what really make this album something incredible. They're deep and thought provoking. Not fluffy nothingness but real substance. Song about hope, perseverance, positivity, grief, commitment. So much great, encouraging words along with musical perfection. My favorite song on the album is "Moving Forward" and that's about acknowledging that bad things happen in life, but the pain is what reminds us that we're alive. Not to forget what happened, but to move forward from it. Songs like that are what this world needs, and this is full of them. Apart from the actual album, I've been lucky enough to meet the Chapman brothers Caleb and Will, and they are honestly some of the nicest people i've ever met. They're the real deal and you won't find a better album than this one.

This album quickly moved to the top of my playlist, and it has remained there since it was released back in July. While they're young, there's a maturity behind their lyrics that impresses me. My favorite tracks include "Waiting for My Time to Come", "2:20", "Caught Me by Surprise" and "I Had to Grow Up". Of course, "Silhouettes" is easy to love, but I hope that the radio stations can move past it - I don't want them to become a one hit wonder. I loved this album so much I purchased several more to give as gifts, and purchased a digital copy for myself when I found myself on the road without my copy. I can't wait to see what comes next as Colony House grows and matures in their music.
