One of the problems that arises in trying to review Taking Back Sunday's "Faith" is that the lyrics ("You might lose your faith in science/You might lose your faith in wealth/You might lose your faith in Jesus, oh/Or lose faith in yourself . . . Just please (please)/Don't lose your faith in me") so obviously invite comparison to Sting's vastly superior "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You." It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Taking Back Sunday actually meant "Faith" as an answer song, though if they did, they don't seem to have said anything about it that I could find. Whatever their intent, "Faith" emerges onto the music scene in the shadow of one of the best solo recordings by a truly amazing songwriter.

In spite of, or more likely owing to, their derivative nature, the lyrics are the best part of this song. The musical setting consists of some pretty intense guitar slamming that comes out louder and more prominent than the vocals for much of the song. The vocals aren't anything special either; the singing often gives way to arguably tuneful shouting at times of greater intensity.

It's not a bad song, and it's worth a listen, especially if you like your music with a hard-rock edge. I'll be keeping this one in my music collection, but "Ten Summoner's Tales" is going to get a lot more play.

Well its not the Police ... but hey, who is?

On its own merits though this isn't a bad tune at all. I will look forward to its intro of a low volume distant repeated guitar chord followed by loud semi crunchy guitars and back ground harmonized ohhhh's. Then comes some pensive church organ as the singer tells the listener he might make some mistakes but he's got your back. And then it gets louder with driving guitars and some nicley harmonized background vocals. Nice teaser to make me wonder about the rest of the cd.

I must admit when I heard the ohhhhh ohhhhh's that it made me want to compare them to every performer from the Beatles to Katy Perry but I restrained myself and managed to focus on this particular song. It's not ground breaking but it is a nice rocking effort.

Tell all your friends is one of the best records ever, since then, I always expected every new TBS record to be like that. Finally Faith sounds like the continuation of that first record.

Some songs invite comparisons because of their lyrics. However, I feel that Taking Back Sunday's "Faith" can stand on it's own merit.

The music is what I had hoped it would be and is great for moods that will come to me. It is fun to check out different artists.
