    5-0 out of 5 stars Supertones continue to amaze me!
    This is an excellent album.It's classic Supertones with some newer twists.They remain faithful to their orignal purpose.The lyrics and music are entertaining, uplifting and encouraging.

    5-0 out of 5 stars loud and clear
    personally, i would say, not only is this the best supertones cd, both musically and lyrically, but the best by any Christian band that ive seen as far as lyrics go. perhaps, because im not a fan of ska i have no problem with this album, which is definetly much more rock and much less ska. but, regardless of the music, which is certainly good, though not anything amazing, it is the lyrics that Matt wrote for these songs that makes this one of the best cd's i own. one of the previous reviewers wrote that they were very disappointed with the lyrics, however i find them to be the most, relavent, well thought out, and truely meaningful set of lyrics by a Christian band that ive seen. i think his words are amazingly well chosen and so full of meaning that most other Christian artists seem either to be too vague to be capable of anything this relevent or to shallow to really matter very much. "you escape reason, we escape wrath" his more meaning in it than entire albums by a lot of other Christian artists. in my opnion the music is good rock with a small bit of ska and and great lyrics.

    5-0 out of 5 stars supertones rock
    With the loud and clear album supertones are moving more toward the rock sound and stearing away from the more ska sound. Although youmight think that would amke them loose the supertones sound it doesn't.This album totally rocks especially with the song jury duty, if you like christian rock or just rock in general this cd would be a good cd to buy and so would any supertones cd after this. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars great uplifting songs
    I loved.... this album. I listen to almost all the songs on this album. These songs hold to bibical truths and the songs uplifted me when I was going thru some hard times like the song (no doubt). If you've never gone thru the desert don't buy this album you wouldn't understand it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Dreck
    Uninspired from the awful album cover to the ho-hum playing and production. If this band is connected to the Creator, then where is the creative "spark" -- one bland song after the other.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Still strong, but unduly criticized
    This album unfortunately marked Petra's decent from popularity to controversy and skepticism centered upon the drastic roster-changes they began to undergo, as evidenced by the unfamiliar faces on the cover, as though advertising the fact that lead guitarist Bob Hartman was no longer there (despite his name being all over the credits inside).

    Politics aside, this album is still very good and worth owning. Again they had the intimidating task of following up an excellent album ("Wake Up Call") and "No Doubt" couldn't quite get there. The first six tracks are great, with infectious guitar riffs and sweet rock ballads that get in your soul. Then, it loses momentum.

    "Two are Better than One" and "Sincerely Yours" don't fit musically with the band's style, and the lyrics are cliche and uninspired. "Think on These Things" is a catchy song with encouraging lyrics, but after that the album kind of goes downhill again.

    Despite these flaws, the seven good tracks definitely redeem this diddy to make it worthy of a slot in your CD tower. (How many secular millionaire artists even put out an album with SEVEN good songs on it??)

    Not as good as "Wake-Up Call" or "Unseen Power", but definitely a cut above the rest. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Might have been good as a first attempt
    Let me start out with a disclaimer: a lot of people love this album, and, musically it's sound. (no pun intended) FIFs constantly changing style missed me with this album, although "ugly day" was acceptable, it sounded much better on the live album...
    If you're a FIF fan you'll like it. If you're not, try Electric Boogaloo or "Our newest album ever" first. (Electric Boogaloo was the best IMO, but i think i'm in the minority on that choice )

    3-0 out of 5 stars Worst FIF album ever
    This album came during a very difficult time for Five Iron Frenzy. One of their chief song writers left the group before songs for this album were written, and the various members of the band (all 8 of them) kind of traded off on song writing duties for this album. As a result, it lacks the unity in sound that a lot of their other albums had (Electric Boogaloo has the same failing, but not to the same extent).

    This is, in my opinion, the least catchy and least appealing of all FIF albums. I was a hardcore fan before this came out, I bought it on the first day and I remember sitting in the car listening to it on the way home and my girlfriend saying to me "It kind of [bad isn't] it" I hated to agree, but I had to.

    For the FIF beginner go for one of their first two albums or the Quantity is Job 1 EP for their finer work. Eventually the FIF faithful talked themselves into liking this one, but without the previous FIF experience, this album will really fall flat for the uninitiated.

    The only really stand out track on the album is A New Hope (and possibly Solidarity). Go buy those two songs on ITunes, and you aren't missing much of anything from the rest of the album.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun CD
    I bought this CD after I heard about FIF from a friend and I am really glad that I did. At first I thought that many of the songs sounded similar, but after a few listens I can now appreciate them all individually. The songs on this CD are fun and are uplifting. I especially enjoy Phantom Mullet, Ugly Day and Greatest Story Ever Told. Five Iron Frenzy is a unique group that should appeal to most people. I recommend this CD to anyone looking for a different type of music that you don't normally hear. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a really, really good CD
    When I got this CD from my older sister, I was glad I got it, but not overly excited. While I listen to Newsboys I'm not their biggest fan or anything. Going Public was a fantastic collection of songs, that I love to listen to! While Newsboys is perhaps geared more towards preteens, I'm not ashamed to admit that I still listen to them, (and a few of my teenage friends ARE their biggest fans!). I know this album was practically released in the dark ages, (I mean 1995 practically was the dark ages, I wasn't even in 1st gradeyet!), but buy it. You will not regret it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Now they're going public!
    I must say, this album is easy to get addicted to! It has a unique style of music that a lot of other artists don't seem to have. If you want my opinion on the songs...
    "Real Good Thing": I can't see why anybody wouldn't like this song! It has great lyrics, great sound, and a great feeling. VERY fun.
    "Shine": Finally, the signature song of the 'boys! Strangely, I used to get bored whenever I thought of this song. Now, I'm in love with it! It's a VERY fun, VERY exciting song. As awesome as it is on the album, it's 100% better when it's live (I was able to see the Newsboys in concert at their Adoration tour). You can tell that these guys have TALENT!
    "Spirit Thing": The song that I barely remember from when I was very young. It seems like everybody loves this song! It has a really good tune, sound, and feeling. I love the guitar at the beginning.
    "Let It Rain": I love this one! It has a very relaxing sound and feeling. I LOVE the chorus. Great worship song!

    "Going Public": Finally, the title track! It seems like nobody really talks about this song a lot. I LOVE the intro, the lyrics, and the sound. Great back-up vocals, too! I LOVE it!
    "Truth And Consequences": I LOVE this song! I've gotta admit, it's got a really catchy tune. Awesome lyrics, sound, and beat!
    "Lights Out": WOOHOO! This is probably the fastest song I've ever heard in my life. If you like fast beats, then you'll LOVE this song. It has the best vocal and instrumental arrangement. It's a VERY fun song!
    "Be Still": This song actually isn't bad. It has a feeling that's a lot like the feeling in "Let It Rain". It's also a VERY good worship song. It's pretty calm, too. Don't forget, I LOVE this one, too!
    "When You Called My Name": This is the kind of song that can stick around in your head. It's kind of quiet, but I like this song that way. There are some points where there is NO sound what so ever for about 1 or 2 seconds, just incase you think that it's skipping. I REALLY like the lyrics. Great tune, too! I LOVE this one as well!
    "Elle G.": This is a great song for the end of an album! If I had to pick any favorite Newsboys songs, this would surely be one of them! I really like the tune and the lyrics; the lyrics tell a really interesting story. I LOVE this one, too!

    Overall, I recommend this CD to anybody who has just gotten to know the Newsboys a couple days ago (that would be if you're reading this review a couple days or so after you found out about the Newsboys), or to anybody who is FAN of the Newsboys. ENJOY!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Newsboys Best
    I have several Newsboys CDs. They usually have one song I love and the rest I never listen too.
    This one is different.This is their best. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Touted by some as Christian music's answer to The Rembrandts, this Nashville four-piece delivers artful, acoustic-based rock. Shipped in to produce two tracks, Adrian Belew captures the band's sweet intensity and clean melodies on "Flood and Liquid," which features a jaw-dropping Gregorian chant sample. --Jeff Bateman ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Christian Album for all to Love
    This simply is a great album.This was my first purchase of a Christian album back in 1997.Since then I have not been much of a Jars of Clay fan, becasue they have changed quite a lot from this debut album.BUT that doesn't mean that this album is not the best good wholehearted effort that I have seen in Christian music in many many years.
    I personally perfer much much harder genres of Christian music (Demon Hunter, Project 86, Chevelle, Pillar, etc.) but I cant say enough how I just love this album (BUT who cant love the early DC Talk, Newsboys stuff!!!!).From the intro to the ending you will not be dissapointed.Even though every song is not a blockbuster, it is still a very worthy purchase.
    This album is mostly synth pop, but trust me its very good.If you want to start your music collection in Christian music this is a great way to start.If you have tons of Christian music and you don't have this one then order it, its a must have.
    This album is great for any age, with a profound clear meaning in each song.

    Song:

    1. Liquid - A great way to start the album out, gets you in the mindset for the rest (love those chants)
    2. Sinking - Not one of my favorites but very worthy
    3. Love Song For A Savior - Wow, what a great song, could be the best one
    4. Like A Child - Faith is Christ gets you far!
    5. Art in Me - Will take awhile to learn to like this one, not bad, good meaning yet not catchy like the rest, soft
    6. He - A song about abuse from a childs mind, great song, wonderful depth
    7. Boy on a String - Very popular song, not one of my favorites, yet good meaning
    8. Flood - Probably the best known song on the album, very different from the rest, more a rock
    9. Worlds Apart - You'll fall in love with this one, great meaning
    10. Blind - eh so so, BUT wait don't forget the hiden song six minutes in, you will recognize it from the Much Afraid album

    Clearly this CD is a must.Any age can dive into this CD and love it for the message it brings.Best of all its all for Christ!

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite C.D.
    This is a great introduction to Jars of Clay for novices. You can sense their youth in this c.d., as it is their first, but that's what makes it so wonderful-because it has such raw, innocent beauty. "Flood" is by far their most recognized song in history, but is as equally good as other songs like "Love Song for a Savior" and "Worlds Apart". "He" is about child abuse from the child's mind, and is very sad. "Worlds Apart" is my favorite song, as it describes every Christian's struggle to give God our desires and let him mold us to want more of Him and less of the world. "Flood" is intense and the darkest on the album. It talks about those times when we have lost all hope and feel like we are drowning in our problems. "Love Song for a Savior" is a beautiful melodic love song, expressing our desire to "fall in love" with our Father. A hint if you get this c.d.: wait after the final track a couple of minutes and you will hear a bonus track entitled "4:7". It is a very cool rendition of the "Jars of Clay" Bible verse, in 2 corinthians. After that is a studio recording of "Blind" and supposedly, you can hear people talking about the O.J. Simpson trial in the background!(Though I couldn't make it out, because it was too far away).

    4-0 out of 5 stars An acoustic must-have
    This is one of my favorite CDs of all-time and Jars of Clay's best. The lyrics are skin-deep, heartfelt, and will almost bring you to tears. The acoustic and melodic sounds are refreshing and serene. The heaviest songs on the CD aren't too loud and match the content of each song especially "Liquid" which is a beautiful song about the Crucifixion but also hard-hitting with New Age-like sounds and a good way to start of the CD. My favorites include "Love Song For a Savior" which is peaceful and beautiful and "Flood" just because it is still acoustic but can be considered rock-alternative. But in my opinion the best song is "World's Apart" which is a song of conviction which literally brought me to tears and it really makes you think. This is the type of song you put on during a rain storm, a lay-in-a-comfy-spot-close-your-eyes-to-and-play-over-and-over-again melodic piece of art. I recommend to everyone because in a loud world full of sit up and decipher songs, this is lay back and let it sink in music that isn't too religion oriented and not too in-your-face. I really give it 4 and a half stars. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good.
    Wow, a poppy punk band with a girl as their lead singer! That alone made me take a listen to Element 101. And from what I've heard so far, it's pretty good. Some people may disagree with me on this, but the songs on this album remind me of Saves the Day (particularly in 'Stay What You Are') only with a female at the helm. The fact that they're Christian doesn't really factor in this for me...good music is good music. I haven't listened to every single track, but 'Standing at the Edge of Night' and 'A Faithful Fascination' are good tracks. I'll probably listen to this band when I'm sick of Jordan from NFG or Chris Conley from Saves the Day's somewhat whiny voices.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Never a dull moment!
    Tooth&Nail records once again gives us a cd, we can just sit back, close our eyes, and soak in the tunes.I had the privelege of seeing e101 at Emo's in Austin, TX.Their live show doesn't hold back anything; the stage itself was sweating for pete's sake.Crissie is one of those lyricists that we could only DREAM to be in the same position as.I've had lyrics that have grabbed me, but not lyrics that have grabbed and SHAKEN me!Very strong!Sounding like a modern day Pearl Jam thrown in a blender with old school Bryan Adams (SUMMER OF '69!), and with a little White Diamonds perfume, e101 has already rocked your socks off, but you just don't know it yet.JERSEY REPRESENT!

    5-0 out of 5 stars G-r-e-a-tM-u-s-i-c!!
    There is NO way ANYBODY would be disappointed with this latest of e101's CD's.Anyone who is... has absolutely no clue to whatit takes to successfully put across a new sound and make it work ...and I mean make it work WELL!This band and their female vocalist has done something unique in todays drab music offerings.MADE TALENT PAY OFF!Talent runs a plenty in this band and groups like Element 101 are paving the way for talent to make a comeback.WowI now have hope for music in this next millenium because of what I heard on Stereo Girls 12 tracks.Great stuff..don't miss out BUY IT! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars BEST OF SKA
    I LOVE THIS ALBUM!! This is definitlety one of the best ska albums ever made, maybe not as great as the first but the second best. I didn't hear it hen it first came out but i heard it and loved it. They have a better ska sound than the o.c. supertones and out of their 5 albums (two worship/praise albums) this is 2nd best. The best tracks are: ("The Hunted", "Jigsaw", and "Fight Of My Life". This is a definite must!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the first one
    This album is worth buying if you're into Christian Ska.I like Jigsaw and Paradise the best.However, their Motor City Ska album is superb and a lot better to skank to.I've seen the Insyderz live, and nothing gets you movin' like their songs from the Motor City Ska album.I do give them kudos though for experimenting in this CD.The Skalleluia CD is ok, but is extremely limited in terms of creativity for obvious reasons (they're tweaking mainstream church songs).Overall:Motor City Ska--BUY IT NOW / Fight of my Life--Buy it when you get around to it / Skalleluia--Borrow it from a friend first

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT SKANKING SKA MUSIC!!!
    I must say at first I was not too crazy about this album but after giving it a few listens it grew on me. It is now in my top 5 ska albums of all time!!!! Musically the insyderz lean more towards pure ska on this CD but there are only 10 songs. Tracks 1,2,4, & 10 are the songs that have some hardcore influence. You can hear punk influence on track 5 and 9 and track 7 is an interesting instrumental song. Yes it is different but it's still the insyderz brand of music. AWESOME SKA-CORE! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent in all categories
    Speakeasy is one of my all-time favorite albums of any genre.From a lyrical standpoint, the songs are at once poignant and beautiful. Words sung with passion. "Keep Waiting," "Rivers Underneath," and "Gold and Silver" are particularly good. I still get chills. In terms of production, the tracks sound amazing. I particularly like the sound of the bass and drums (I'm a musician...this stuff is important to me.) Lots of deep lows, good balance of mids and highs. Production goes well with the dark, brooding, but positive lyrical content. Plus, who could deny Mark's voice? Its strange and a wonderful contrast to the other instruments.Run, don't walk, to your local music store and buy this album.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Has it all...except one thing
    This could be one of the greatest hard rock/metal bands. They've got a great sound, great lyrics, great passion for Christ, yet Mark Soloman's voice doesn't quite go with the rest. He needs some vocal coaching. It's obviously a strain to hit the higher notes and he comes off sounding like a cross between that whiny Robert Smith and a constipated Ozzy Osbourne. If you could imagine a voice like Chris Cornell in there, then Stavesacre would go down as one of the greatest bands in recent memory. But they're doing the Lord's work, and that's fine by me! Bless them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Six Years Later....
    It remains one of my favorite albums of all time and I still listen to it regularly. Here's the score...buy this album and also purchase "Absolutes". My two favorites albums from one of the best bands of all time. While you're at it, but every album. You won't regret it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best metalcore album ever
    If you like heavy music and you don't like this album, I would automatically question your sophistication as a listener.

    "Where Blood and Fire..." is THE best metalcore album of all time.If you're new to the genre, this IS the perfect place to start, along with New Day Rising's "Memoirs of Cynicism" and Morning Again's "Martyr."Seriously, that's all you really need.

    Anyway... This is one of those albums that needs a whole three seconds of play to beckon both ears as a listener.Immediately, any intelligent listener will a.) recognize the enormously thick production and b.) the enormously thick guitar sound.And then Danny hisses... lol.Wow.Back in '98 I hadn't yet been exposed to black metal, so I was utterly shaken when I heard Daniel Weyandt seeth.And even now, after being thoroughly schooled in black metal, I'm not sure anybody tops him.They all end-up sounding thin.Though this is NOT black metal, Danny has THE richest, most scathing "black metal" vocals ever.Coincidentally, I once overheard him say, "I can breathe into a mic and label's will jump to sign my band."

    Generally, most bands in the metalcore genre, especially nowdays, tend to vituperate the listener until his/her family doctor notices some callusing on the eardrum and advises the patient to switch styles quick.Fortunately, this disc comes with no contraindications.YES, it's brutally heavy; and YES, your mom still won't understand why you like it - or, rather, why you can't stop listening to it, BUT at the same time, there is recognizable beauty here.After all, "Where Blood and Fire..." was written back when emo-hero Brett Detar (Juliana Theory frontman) was still in the band, so you know the melody's there and you know the song-writing's terrific.

    And then there's Jesse Smith, the last original member.My God, does this guy kick ass.He hits his kit like it just assaulted his mom.Seriously, each strike pulls with it the conviction of a madman; and with the killer production, he pounds like thunder.Pair this disc with a great set of speakers and you're toast.No joke, your heart will start thumping to the beat of Jesse's feet.

    Anyway, if you go to church and you don't preach this album, you should be crucified.If you're a Zao fan and you don't have this album - hate to break it to ya - you're hardly aware of what you stand for.10/10.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bow Down To Your New God
    Zao is the best Christian metalcore band to have ever existed. This is also the first CD with the brutal Carcass-esque vocals of Dan Weyandt, along with Russ Cogdell. Brett Detar of The Juliana Theory also plays guitar on this record. Don't forget the legendary Jesse Smith. "A Fall Farewell", "Ravage Ritual" and "Ember" are all great tracks, along with the rest of this legendary album. So set all your Switchfoot and Third Day albums on fire and buy some good music for once.

    Also, check out my Zao fan site:

    Editorial Review

    Critics of the modern Christian rock sound should take heed of Bleach's new self-titled release. They'll be hard-pressed to find fault. Bleach is wonderfully surprising both in its complexity and accessibility. The Ramone-like choruses on "Heartbeat," "You Are Good," and "Once Again Here We Are" show the band knows a good melodic hook when it writes one. Yet for every power-pop gem, Bleach counters with "Sun Stands Still" and "Straight Shooter," hard-rockin' numbers that are deep and wide and allow the group to flex its musical muscle. For good measure, the band throws in the acoustic, pensive "What Will Your Anthem Be" and the praise-and-worship-oriented "All to You," firming up the fact that singer Dave Baysinger has a real rock & roll voice that can carry a lyric through loud and soft. After two inconsistent releases, the third time's the charm for Bleach.--Michael Lyttle ... Read more

    The pinnacle of the under ground has arrived...
    Not to many know of these fine five, The greatness of there Musical talent is only matched by the same same five guys live in concert.... The band can barely be compared to anyone but them selves... With the first CD you find a very much Smashing Pumpkins like rock rendition.. but in their fallow up the grow into there own cloths... and with Beautifully but together Self titled and 3rd album the truely brake... in the making of art not just music.... this people of the world is wonderful...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Magnificent
    My earliest memory of Bleach stems from the time that I first heard "Super Good Feeling" and said "Whoa, these guys are trying way too hard to sound like Oasis." I scoffed, but by the end of the day I was standing in line with a copy of "Static" in my hands. It was a good, if somewhat goofy album that had catchy, three-chord rockers mixed with a bit of whacked out 80's synth. I'd give it three stars out of five. I say all this to illustrate the lack of expectation I felt when I saw that they had released a third studio album. I was loyal enough to buy it, but I wasn't anticipating that it would become one of my favorite albums of all time. Well, it did. Simply put, this is power-rock done to perfection. People wonder why the CD that came out after this wasn't so great, well the reason is that after this release there was nowhere left to go but down! Every song is finely crafted with a specific purpose and that purpose is achieved fully on each track. Whether the purpose is to rock out hardcore ("Sun Stands Still"), softly show devotion to God ("Give it All to You"), or just plain have fun ("Breathe"), a bullseye is hit every time. The guitar playing is solid, harmonies are well done, and Dave Baysinger has one of the coolest rock voices ever. To summarize, whether you're a devout follower of Christ or a wayward pagan, you NEED this CD. It's just plain great rock'n'roll.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Slightly different line up, new producer, sans electronics,
    Ladies and Gentlemen, Bleach has arrived! It's as if the band got together after the first two albums and said "All right, those were fun. How about we tighten up and make a FANTASTIC album?" Well, it worked. Slightly different line up, new producer, sans electronics, and here we are, standing in the presence of greatness.

    Watching the band's sound progression over the first two albums (Space in `96, and Static in '99) I was curious as all get out to see what they were going to do with this 3rd release. And in this case, curiosity gets the cat rockin'. New producer Pete Stewart (yes, Grammatrain front man/solo artist guy, that Pete Stewart) definitely had a guitar-laden influence on these guys. Gone are the electronics that had become more prominent in the second release. We now have a solid, mature, well-rounded release sure to pick up some awards on the way.

    Any radio DJ wanting to slam the CD in the deck and first-track it on air has it made with the album's opening Heartbeat. The song opens the album up by driving deep both musically and lyrically, conveying an intimacy with God not often found in a power pop hit. Tints of the quirky lyrics from the previous albums show through in the rocking Straight Shooter, but two albums worth of maturity are evident in the meaning behind the message. Once Again Here We Are is a great poppy tune, and while the message behind the music is all about keeping on keeping on, I'll take the track lyrics literally and look forward to the implied promise of future Bleach material. :) The hard and fast Race continues the theme of holding fast to the end without compromise.

    The mellower tracks on the album convey a seriousness and depth that shows the band has a firm grasp on what the game's all about. The rolling balled You is a great one-on-one track that conveys a personal message felt only through experience. This experience must have brought a heap of humbleness to turn out All That's Sweet, a mellow lay it all open track. "So here is my offering Just a downbeat and a string But to You it's a beautiful thing".

    Things get going again with Reasons, a fast paced look at a life where God is there even when we don't necessarily submit a request. The rolling and rhythmic Breathe, with its distortion and falsetto backing vocals, calls out for new life from the breath of God. Great idea for a Tic Tac commercial...

    I was surprised at my reaction to the album, in that my favorite tracks on the album aren't the great fast paced rock tunes, but the painfully relevant and honest slower tracks, including All To You and Good. The tracks hit right to where you're at, without fluff and pretension. Sun Stands Still gets you rocking right before the end of the album, with its melodic verse, guitar hook driven chorus, slight effects on the vocals and crazy 30 seconds of distortion wonder at the end. I love albums that put just the right track at the end, and Bleach's self-titled didn't disappoint. What Will Your Anthem Be makes you stop, look, and listen before crossing any more roads in life.

    From start to finish, Bleach has put out an excellent album. Varying in styles but consistent in quality, their self-titled offers a great listen for the ears and the soul.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Second best Project 86 album...
    Why Project 86 decided to follow counterparts POD into the abyss known commercially as "selling out" is a complete mystery to me. We all know why they did it: the idea of more money. However, Project 86's type of abrasive and in-your-face sound and lyricism has never been a very marketable one. POD's success depended on their ability to completely tone down their music and message, and create pop-rock songs that spoke to the nation's youth about how to have a good time, yet simultaneously "preached" to them about how much they needed God; POD became the ethnic Creed.

    The thing that really bugs me the most about Project 86 was that they were THE band that had the most potential out of POD and them. They had the front man, they had the sound, they had the lyrics. And most of all, they had the conviction that POD seemed to shed away once the idea of more money showed itself. But, sadly, this has gone and Project 86 has lost their edge. But have no fear, they still have Drawing Black Lines and their Self-Titled albums for their fans.

    I give Drawing Black Lines four stars because of the tracks Star and Twenty-Three. They are a complete waste of listening time. Scrap both of these songs and you have an album that is arguably harder and better-produced. But because the Self-Titled has not one skippable track, and this album does, I can say without any doubt in my mind that the Self-Titled is better. Also, the lyrics for the Self-Titled are head and shoulders above Drawing Black Line's lyricism. Stars and Twenty-Three are songs that showed Project 86 experimenting with their sound. It didn't work then, and it doesn't work now. On to the tracks.

    Tracks 1-6 are the albums meat and potatoes. Those songs are, Stein's Theme, One Armed Man, Me Against Me, PS, Set Me Up, and Chimes. And are up there with anything off of the Self-Titled album. After those six songs, the remaining four songs (I am excluding Star and Twenty-Three) are just good hard-rock songs. Those four songs are, A Toast to My Former Self, Sad Machines, Chapter 2, and Open Hand. The last four are anthemic in nature, as in they repeat themselves alot. Especially the songs Chapter 2 and Open Hand.

    All in all, this is a good release. But not as good as the Self-Titled. Also, as I read some of the reviews I noticed a review posted by FunnyBobKavlin stating that the lyrics were about suicide and what not. This is the problem when a band like Project 86 begins the process of selling out, their music starts appealing to people who don't actually listen to the music and the lyrics, but just whether or not it is catchy and mainstream. To correct FunnyBobKavlin. The song in which the character is speaking about slitting wrists, is titled Me Against Me. The line is "Slitting our wrists/running for sympathy" now, I don't expect people like FunnyRobert to get this. This is actually a statement of the nature of human beings. It is about the sinful nature of people. Slitting your wrists and running for sympathy a metaphor for how incredibly self-destructive people are to themselves and those around them, and that after a person does something like this, they always want sympathy from God; they want forgiveness. It is a simple statement of the evil nature of people. FunnyRobert also mentioned a line from the song Chimes. Chimes is about a person who has died and gone to hell and how, when he was alive, everything that his flesh wanted seemed OK. But once he had died he wished he could "rewind the clock and attempt to play back" which means that he wishes he could live his life over again and not do all of the things that were tempting him.

    Like I said, this music is not for the masses and it really bugs me that they have tried to make it for the masses. I know they want to get their music and message out, but what a lot of people don't realize is that the majority they are seeking to get their message to are more like FunnyBobKavlin. They don't understand it.

    These guys are my favorite band on Tooth and Nail.If you like NOFX, Blink 182, and/or MxPx, then you should get this cd.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect!!!!!!!
    this cd is one great album. it sounds a lot like slick shoes. especially the guitar parts and lead singers voice. they even have the same type of pop punk songs. it is awesome.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Woo-hoo!Punk Rock!
    The Undecided is the first Tooth and Nail band from Canada and the reasons are obvious.One listening to this CD and I thought of the obvious reference to a certain punk trio from Bremerton.But after repeatedlistenings I have realized there's more to it.These guys have tons oftalent, a love for God and great song-writing abilities.There'sstraight-ahead punk, pop-punk and even a song that reminds me of ska!Ifyou like MxPx, Slick Shoes, or even the Supertones, you will love theseguys! ...

    Editorial Review

    In addition to its message of all-out, headlong surrender to the Gospel, Delirious's first widely accessible album also has just plain old good music. Often described as the "new U2," Delirious's resemblance is not hard to detect.Martin Smith's vocals, like Bono's, are far ranging and have a captivating, heart-wrenching emotionalism.The band as a whole has a kind of reckless innovation that consistently surges into stunning new territory. On King of Fools, for instance, the presence of a violin, a choir, and a Rickenbacker in one song is not an unusual combination, and the use of every kind of guitar in existence seems to be their specialty.Anyone would agree that Delirious is casting a mold of their own. Their hunger for God is strenuous and explores the depths of all struggles: the longing for more of Him and developing the patience to wait, the struggle for belief when "blood rolls down upon our land" and when love spills "down that wooden cross" ("White Ribbon Day"), and the struggle when the gifts He brings "rob [our] innocence" ("King or Cripple").In every song, the tension eventually culminates in a contemplation of the Cross--as when in "All the Way" Smith erupts, "with you I'm washed as white as the snow and all crimson stain becomes as a shadow"--and the effect is only more stirring.Never has an album had so much rock and so much passion; listen and you'll be hungry for more. --Courtenay Kehn ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great message, BUT...
    Don't get me wrong - I LOVE Christian rock. In fact, my very first introduction to the genre was a 2 disk set from Delirious. Since then, however, I've also been introduced to Audio Adrenaline, Third Day and DC Talk - among others. While this particular CD is masterfully mixed and the guys are all masters of their instruments, it just lacks the driving force behind the message I've come to appreciate from others. (I often tease my wife - who tends towards the more mellow in music - that she needs to start a support group called, "Headbangers for Christ.")
    This is a decent album, (dating myself there), and the rhythmic backdrop of "August 30th" - while initially annoying to me - became strangely soothing and reassuring by the end. There is plenty of good to be said about this disc, but if you tend towards Third Day and AA, this one probably isn't for you.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Who says Christians can't rock?
    I became a Christian because of music.The people who showed love to me helped, but it was the music, all-encompassing and powerful that made me feel like something important existed beyond myself.Delirious's music was a big part of that.

    King of Fools is centered around the complementary themes of doubt and faith, questioning God and redemption.One of the reasons I love this band so much is the fact that they aren't always "happy-clappy" like so many other other worship bands.Their songs are sincere, thoughtful, intelligent, and most of all, powerful.They address issues that anyone with a complex faith has struggled with, and found their faith stronger because of it.

    For example, take their single, Deeper, one of my favorite worship songs, and one of the first I learned.It's alternatively questioning, enthusiastic, humble and completely in love with God.From the honesty of "I want to be meeker/But have you seen this old earth? and "I want to go deeper/But is it just a stupid whim?" to "And the wonder of it all is that I'm living just to fall/More in love with you," this song encompasses so many of the emotions inherent in the contemplative Christian life. (Or at least in mine.) Plus, it rocks. Likewise, "White Ribbon Day" expresses many of the same fears, and is particuarly relevant today (although it was released in 1998).I certainly couldn't help but think of Bush's lack of doubt about God's support for the War in Iraq listening to the lyrics "How can it be that God is love?/When blood rolls down upon our land."In all, the song is an insistant call for peace and love, following Jesus's message of loving one's neighbor.

    As for music, anyone who thinks Christians are all uptight Republicans who can't rock hasn't listened to Delirious?.Beyond their punkish look, the band can rock with plenty of loud guitars and passionate singing.The music is generally straightforward rock, with a few lovely songs breaking the mold.For example, "What a Friend I've Found" starts as a sparcely arranged, prayer-like song and evolves into a gorgeous gospelly song backed by guitars.

    In addition to all this, Delirious? prove you can write a terrific worship song without using the words "Jesus," "Lord" or "God" (in fact, they have several).If you want a Christian band that is just a great band in general, listen to Delirious?They're my favorite Christian band, and one of my favorites overall. As for King of Fools, it's pretty amazing for a debut album.

    4-0 out of 5 stars As expected, a strong album by one of today's best!!
    Having listened to Delirious for a few years, I expected this album to be a strong one, and I was not disappointed.Overall, about half of the songs are outstanding ("Sanctify", "History Maker", "Deeper", for example), while the rest are all pretty good.The band covers a wide range of musical styles (hard, pop, soft, etc), and they deliver well in each catergory. Although I must admit that I prefer the louder, upbeat songs on this album more so than the slower ones.

    I have seen Delirious compared to U2 on numerous occasions, and never agreed with this match.Having listened to this album, I have reconsidered this comparison and think that it does warrant consideration.Some of the songs have a U2 quality, except that Delirious is much more obvious about their faith.

    I definitely recommend this album to any CCM fan who does not already own it, especially if you are a Delirious fan.If you are new to CCM, Delirious is a great band to use as a starting point.Musically they are very talented, and lyrically they are powerful. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars he was heard...over and over and over again
    This is undoubtedly one of Michael Card's very best compact discs.It abounds with eloquence of lyrics, the likes of which we, his fans, have not heard since POIEMA.If you've enjoyed Michael Card's past efforts, then you'll most likely be hooked by this one from the first few notes of the first song until the end of the CD.

    The song "Violent Grace" places the sufficient grace of God (which He has lavished on us) in a whole new light.The song "He Was Heard" is an oldie which is also found on the CD KNOWN BY THE SCARS; but I personally recommend finding it on THE LIFE, which is Michael Card's trilogy of the Life of Christ--comprised of KNOWN BY THE SCARS, SCANDALON, and THE FINAL WORD--a magnificent collection of music. However, I'm still glad that Mr. Card saw fit to place that one in this fine collection of songs.

    "Seventh Sunrise" has become one of my all-time favorite Card tunes (I never realized how much that sounds like "cartoons" until I typed it just now--man, was that cheesy!).It celebrates the beauty and anointing of the Sabbath.With that being the second to last song and "Grace Be With You All" being the very last song, this CD features one of the finest farewells any Christian musician has ever tacked on to the end of a CD.

    This one is much better than UNVEILED HOPE and almost as good as POIEMA.But once again, I heartily recommend Michael Card's THE LIFE (as well as THE ANCIENT FAITH, his musical trilogy of the Old Testament).I look forward with eager anticipation to the soon-to-be-released A FRAGILE STONE, Michael Card's new project concerning the apostle Peter.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful variety, powerful lyrics!
    Here is another triumphant album by my favorite musician! Michael Card spins the themes of the Book of Hebrews into strong lyrics sung within great, folk-styled music and little gospel too (the title track). In the first song, "A Violent Grace," (which shares the name of Michael's book on Hebrews) Michael approaches the crucifixion from a different angle, saying that Jesus' love for us is "ruthless" and "wreckless," paying a violent price for our relationship with God the Father. I love hearing Christine Dente's gorgeous voice (Out of the Grey) in this one."By Faith" is an exciting version Hebrews 11 sung with Jars of Clay's Dan Haseltine, and by including Dente and Haseltine, the voices of my three favorite music groups have come together on a single album.
    "Soul Anchor," with its gospel organ and choir, delivers ringing words of truth. "[Jesus] is a soul anchor. . . Before we call, he answers us with hope." Those words combined with some from "Never Will I Leave You," struck my heart one day at work; I walked out to the car to cry and repent. Of course, I highly recommend this album to all thinking Christians and eclectic music lovers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Superb Collection of Spiritual Music
    I would have to label this album my favorite from Card's collection. The songs have such zeal and passion; each reaches into your soul and changes you in a way you might never have imagined. "Never Will I Leave You" is perhaps the most meaningful CCM song I have heard. With the promise that even when "you fear/the scars and tears," Jesus is there "with you through the storm," Card reminds us that we need never fear in God's loving arms. We are never abandoned. And Card challenges us in other songs to make that promise true for others -- to suffer and tend to the sick, the dying, the imprisoned, the anguished. "New and Living Way" is another exemplary track.

    I also admire Card for striking out in new musical directions. He even includes a full-out gospel song that is unlike anything you've heard from Card before! You may not thoroughly enjoy it, but I think the breadth of songs conveys a larger message: that there is room under the "spiritual tent" for more than just one type of follower of Christ. All are welcome at the Lord's Table.

    Take the challenge. Try this album. It will challenge you. ... Read more

    I bought this cd about a month ago, and am now totally satisfied. I actually bought it at the Family Store, and listened to it once. After like 3 weeks, i went back to listen to it and realized what i was missing. It did take another listen to realize it was totally awesome. I listened to it like a week straight in my car. It is a lot different compared to Five Iron Frenzy. Five Iron Frenzy is Ska/ rock. Brave Saint Saturn is pure rock, with some effects. It was the best $3 i spent.
