5.0 out of 5 stars A New UnderOath, 1 Sept. 2005
This review is from: They're Only Chasing Safety (Audio CD)
This album shows a very different UnderOath to their earlier releases, mainly due to having a new singer. The original one left / was forced to leave the band after 'The Changing Of Times'.
This album is much more musical, the singer has a totally different voice so the music, presumably, has adapted to fit with the more musical voice rather than the low pitched beautiful howling of old. The only disappointment is the amount of tracks. As with 'The Changing Of Times' there are only 10 tracks of a normal length (around 4 minutes per song on average). But one of the ten tracks is a 50 second instrumental meaning there are only 9 proper songs.
Young and Inspiring is the perfect track with which to start the album. Builds in over 10 seconds with a slow fade in of background noise followed by 'So Let's Not Even Try' being screamed, and the music kicks in heavy and tuneful on 'Try'. Probably my favourite on the album. The tracks build up and the 'first half' ends on track four Reinventing Your Exit which was a video release in America. Then there is the 'interval' of 'The Blue Note'. Straight away it kicks back in up to pace, heavy and lyrically genius as before with the new American single 'It's A Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door'. Another great track. The album finale is one of my other favourites 'Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Others Escape'. This is mainly quiet with what sounds like an acoustic guitar. Then the first clear Christian refernces kick in with the line 'Jesus I'm Ready To Come Home'. If it is not clear, UnderOath are the cream of the Christian music. This is a lot closer to the mainstream than previous releases and therefore easier on the ear, but a brilliant, beautiful album throughout. I HIGHLY recommend it.
