Ashes Remain recently popped up as an Amazon Recommendation after a recent Christian Rock purchase. I've been away from Contemporary Christian music for the last 5 years -- so, I'm not really in the know of 'Who's Who' in this particular genre. But, I do know what I like - and "What I've Become" was an album I wanted to immediately purchase. Yes, they are rocky; but, much more than having a driving beat -- their music is lyrically complex. An example of this comes from the song, End of Me, that says "Black and white melt into gray, 'til every truth is stripped away, when nothing's wrong, nothing's okay, everyone has been betrayed!"
This album is refreshingly different than other 'artists' out there with all-fluff-no-substance lyrics. In my opinion, the lyrics shows a depth in doctrinal understanding of contemporary teachings of the Christian faith. Warning: Listening to this album with headsets on in the middle of Cubical City at work, may cause one to unconsciously head bang, fist pump, and sing out loud -- resulting in strange looks from coworkers as they pass by....(of course, I wouldn't know anything about that -really). :-)
