4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable pop music - doesn't feel like 'Christian Music', July 9, 2005
This review is from: I Wish We All Could Win (Audio CD)
This is a CD that I have to admit I initially checked out because of who was in it. You see, the lead singer goes to the same church that my wife and I do. So when he came out with this CD, I had to check it out. And surprisingly, I liked it a lot. At first, I didn't think I would, since it was going to be somewhat poppish, and I generally listen to things like Black Sabbath. However, I really enjoyed this. The songs were catchy, and fit my listening tastes well. It's not perfect, mind you, but it's terribly enjoyable. I particularly loved the songs Beautiful Love, Until the World, Love Lead Me On, and Way You Are.

They're a Christian band, but they're not being marketed that way. They don't try and really "hide" their message - it's all over their lyrics, and if you talk to them, you'll know it. But in terms of marketing, it's not being pushed to the forefront. That probably allows them to get into places that they normally wouldn't, as a "Christian" bands tend to get pigeonholed into corners and not allowed access to the mainstream of public music awareness.

I'm friends with the singer, and I hope the band does well from a personal aspect, and as musicians - as I liked the album and want to see what they'll do for a followup.

One note, this band existed for awhile in the Dallas area (where they're from) with the band name of Blisse. Some of the songs on this album did appear on an idie release of theirs called "When the World was Wonderful".

Finally, if you visit the customer images section for this album on Amazon, you'll see a picture of the band I submitted from their record release party on Feb 22, 2005 - the day this album came out.
