I came across this band when looking for contemporary Christian music. Listening to the samples made me want to buy the album. This is Needtobreathe's 5th studio album but the first I bought and listened to. Every track on this album is fantastic. While "defined" as a Christian rock band, they have a Southern/American sound to many of their tracks. Bear Rinehart's vocal are raw and unique and there is no doubting the band's musicianship. The energy of the first 3 tracks gives way to the folksy Oh, Carolina, and the meoldic, athemic worship song "Multiplied". I can listen to this over and over again.

The Reckoning has to be one of my all time favourite records (with the Outsiders not far behind), so their new album was always going to have a lot to live up to. On many accounts it does, Difference Maker, State I'm in etc. are wonderful tracks, but for me there are a few songs which didn't quite live up to the standard of the Reckoning. However, it is still being played an awful lot on my Sonos, Nokia and iPad. If you like Needtobreathe you will definitely love this album

For years I have heard this band mentioned, but never took much notice. I ordered this album on the spur of the moment and wow, it blew me away! No wonder it made no.3 on the Billboard album charts.
Highly recommended for fans of Kings of Leon or Southern rock. Long live the Rinehart brothers!
