The band doesn't want their music pigeon-holed into any one particular category so that it's able to reach the widest possible range of
But being a reviewer I have to put some sort of label on it. Their music is mostly a mix of pop and punk styles with some power pop also thrown
into the mix.
Whatever label you want to place on it the only thing that really matters is that it's really good. You'll find lightning fast guitars,
booming drum work and really well done vocals.
The CD starts off fast with the pop/punk song, "Procrastinating" that deals with human nature of always putting things off until later. Be it something as mundane as doing homework or more important things like going to church or sharing your faith with others.
The rest of the songs deal a lot with real life issues from a faith perspective. The need to really release control of our life to God and following His guidance.
There are also several songs of hope for people down, troubles or depressed with life.
One of the best examples is the song. "Hold On," that deals with the subject of depression and how much God loves us unconditionally even when we want to give up on ourselves.
The last listed song on the CD is, "Angels In Chorus." The song is the band expressing their total devotion to God.
The band says the song takes them back to their earlier days as the worship band at their youth group in Arizona
There is average music, good music and then that category of special music.
With the combination of great music and lyrics found on this release it falls into that special music category.
Whether your young or just young at heart,this release, destined to be a pop/punk classic should be on your must buy list.
Great job guys!
