"A prophetic and artistic masterpiece..."
"Rossi blends rock, folk, alternative, and blues to communicate with passion his faith in God and music..."
"Hypnotic rock and roll with a jarring conviction..."
"Some fans of this album share Rossi's faith in Christ. Some like me, do not consider ourselves Christian adherents. I believe God is an Infinite Source that doesn't pick one religious team. Some fans of this CD are atheists. But this record reaches believers and non-believers alike because it's great rock and roll. The love and musicianship from Richard Rossi, the Rossi brothers, and their hometown assortment of musical pros from Pittsburgh shines through from the highest hill." (Adam Lightplay, Lightplay Productions)
Description: 12 original songs penned by Rossi (some in tandem with his childhood friend and collaborator John Walker) exploring faith & doubt, sex, sin, & salvation in this masterful no-bullshit album engineered by the legendary Jerry Reed and produced by Peter & Richard Rossi. Richard sings lead & backing vocals & plays guitar & harmonica. Peter Rossi plays additional guitar parts and other instruments like banjo, mandolin, & bass. Tony Rossi plays drums. And an additional ensemble of talented musicians & singers make cameo appearances to make this a masterpiece for the Master. Rossi dedicated the album to the memory of his late friends Jimmy Montgomery & Jack Sims.
