Customer Review

on 25 September 2004
A gripe I have with many Christian bands is that they don't seem to be able to wrap up meaningful lyrics, strong music, passion and personality in one consistent package. When I first heard "If We Are the Body" from this album, I was very impressed. Would the rest of the album consist of one or two more great songs and then seven or eight duds?
Nope. While the first six songs and the last four songs are dramatically different in theme and tone, all are extremely well-written, insightful and powerful. Mark Hall has some of the sharpest lyrics going, exploring the power of prayer (and the absence of prayer), our responsibilities as the body of Christ, the power of faith, the power of God's grace, the futility of working for earthly treasures and the importance of our personal witness. And that's just the first six songs.
We are then thrown into four praise songs, which slightly upset the flow, but perhaps bring a much needed lift after such a deep and introspective start. While the final song, Your Love Is Extravagant, is a nice finish, to me it seems out of place as the only song without Mark Hall's contribution to lyrics and music. But hey, this is an excellent album, minor quirks and all.
