Not quite there for me
on 24 February 2012
I like what this band is doing with regards to the direction they are taking Christian music, but I still find myself loving some moments and then cringing at others. For me, the lyrics too often are lacking and haven't been thought through properly. I don't have a problem with half-rhyme, but I think that if you use this tool then at least make the words powerful. All too often the words of these songs just seem to exist with no real purpose.
The other reason why I have to give this album 3 stars is that, in my opinion, they have a talent for producing lacklustre covers of great songs. "You are my vision" is no exception. The new words are pale in comparison to the original and the new music misses the all the power. However, "Build your kingdom here" shows just what they can do and it is brilliant. I look forward to see what they do next, but this album doesn't excite me enough for me to want to buy another.
