5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, May 25, 2004
This review is from: The Faithful Anchor (Audio CD)
The first time I saw unwed sailor play was at cornerstone a few years ago. The sun was just setting, and I strolled casually past an generator powered dirt floor stage. The musicians formed silhouttes against the dimmed sky. Whatever you would imagine the musicians playing in such a context, is probably close. Poetic? Powerful? Relaxing? Yes, Yes, Yes. All this, with the exception of the last track, is done without words. Without words? Yes, and actually quite well.
I have no idea what the boys had in mind when they wrote tracks 3 and 5, but I can tell you exactly what they mean to me. Not that I will, but know this. There is something invigorating about this whole cd, something that I can't quite put my finger to, something that one reviewer called a "spiritual element." Well, I'm not sure about all that, "spiritual" has a lot of connotations that I don't think work, but if you think of "spiritual" as that element of man that transcends what he does in this world; the thing which unites the far flung roles he embodies in this world and makes them something more,enables him to both preserver, and yet, in the midst of it all, to be more than simply existing, that is to really live. If that is your definition then, heck yes, call it "spiritual" all day long. I love this stuff.
