If you are new to Decyfer Down, just buy this album. You will love it. Excellent writing, terrific performances, this is still one of the top Christian rock bands in the world.

If you are a DD fan, you will miss Caleb Oliver on vocals. TJ Harris is a good singer, but Caleb had a unique sound. If Caleb sang with another band, I would instantly spot his voice. I could name you thirty rock singers that sound just like TJ. He's a great singer, really strong vocals, but he doesn't have that uniqueness to his voice.

By the way, there was a Crash EP released last fall with Crash, Best I Can, and a third song Now I'm Alive that didn't make the final album. These were sung by Caleb. If you want to compare Caleb's version of the title song with TJ's, track down the EP. I'm glad I bought it when it came out. I feel like it's a collector's item, sort of.

This album isn't as hard edged in its sound as End of Grey was, Decyfer Down has some change of pace songs here with a lighter touch. But it's still serious rock, they're not turning into a pop rock band. Not yet anyway. Despite my hurt over Caleb's leaving, I still recommend this band to you very much.

I would've rated this album five stars, except for the lead singer change. Buy it.

This is my first time listening to Decyfer Down, and I must say, I totally enjoyed it. They also stand for something I believe in, Christ. But they don't shove religion down your throat, but rather share their experiences through music and how Christ had gotten them through the moments in question. Their sound as similar to bands like Thousand Foot Krutch, Pillar, Red, and even a lil Puddle if Mudd. I like their range of music and look forward to more material from them in the future.

For those wondering what took Decyfer Down three years to release its sophomore CD Crash on INO Records, there were plenty of roadblocks that would've sent a lesser band down for the count. In between albums, the hard rock foursome found themselves victims of a freakish van crash that sent its vehicle sliding across several lanes of traffic, sideswiping a guardrail and sending equipment flying in all directions. Outside of a directional refinement, Crash also finds vocalist TJ Harris--formerly of Fighting Instinct fame--stepping up to the microphone for previous leader Caleb Oliver, who was recently married.

Opening song "Crash" is one my favorite rock songs of the past year, originally recorded with Caleb on the digital "Crash EP" and re-recorded with TJ on the album release 5/5/09. I like both versions, especially the emotional tie-in to the band's van crash and the challenges of life. The album continues with "Desperate", another great rock song with a great message. "Fading" is next and is currently a top 10 hit song on the rock chart. My favorite song is next, "Best I Can", also originally recorded with Caleb and re-recorded with TJ. The song is a ballad and really reflects my personal desire to live life the best I can for God.

"We believe that we've taken it up a notch as far as our songwriting and performance goes on the songs as well. The songs touch on different aspects of our journey as believers, that God has a purpose and plan for your life." Drummer Josh Oliver

If you like Christian rock bands Disciple, Pillar and Red, you should enjoy this solid rock album by Decyfer Down, especially the songs "Crash", "Fading" and "Best I Can", which are my favorites songs on the album.

End of Grey was a fantastic album. It was nothing other bands haven't done, but they pulled it off really well. Caleb's absence on this album does hurt Decyfer Down's sound, though TJ is a decent replacement. I think most people's problem is TJ has a very typical rock voice, and it's not memorable enough. I would tend to agree. However, I think more of a problem lies in the songs themselves--most of them are mediocre. There are three ballads on this album: Best I Can, Moving On, and Forever With You and they aren't that great. On End of Grey, Burn Back the Sun is a great power ballad and Here To You is beautifully written ballad. TJ doesn't sound as good when he slows things down, even looking back at Fighting Instinct, the ballads were not particularly impressive. On Desperate it seems like he's talking his way through the verses. The bridge is actually pretty good, except for the lyrics: "You know my name, You know my pain, and I need You x5." Ride With Me is good. Wasting Away is has a couple nice riffs, but the rest of the song isn't up to par with a song like Walking Dead. Over My Head, despite the lack of originality in the title is a pretty good song, and has one of the catchier choruses on the album. The Life is just not that memorable, in fact even after listening to it 8 or 9 times, I had to replay this song in order to remember what it sounded like for this review. TJ does a nice job with the title track, but the real gem of this album is Fading. It is possibly the best Decyfer Down song out of all 20 songs they've recorded. The riffs are amazing, the drums are epic, and TJ's voice really shines on this song, although I wonder what it would have sounded like if the original person who penned this song, Caleb, sang it. Unless you are a true Decyfer Down fan, I'd skip this release. Instead I recommend buying the individual songs: Crash, Fading, Ride With Me, and Over My Head. If you're completely turned off to this album, at least get the song Fading.
