Review: The Altar And The Door By Casting Crowns

Posted in Music Reviews and Interviews

God has us singing to the church and talking to a believer. To a culture now that would call it preaching to the choir-I guess we would call it discipleship. So, it’s really discipleship set to music.” (Mark Hall, on The Altar and The DoorBonus DVD). Challenging the church comes naturally to GRAMMY award-winning band Casting Crowns and is evident in the release of their recent third studio album, The Altar and The Door.

Review: Afterwords By Collective Soul

Posted in Music Reviews and Interviews

hey say that you know a hit when you hear it. That is the case with the song "Hollywood" from Collective Soul's new album, Afterwords. "Hollywood" features a fun melody that you catch yourself tapping on the steering wheel in traffic and a chorus easy enough to remember for singing in the shower.

Review:  Glory Revealed: The Word Of God In Worship

Posted in Music Reviews and Interviews

The laundry room, the Sound Kitchen, and the back of the bus don't sound like great places to record. However they are three of the places chosen to record the amazing worship album, Glory Revealed: The Word of God in Worship. Being recorded in unusual places has not stopped this album from housing the multi-artist hit “By His Wounds,” or being a collection of some great songs that we should hear for years to come. 


Five Score And Seven Years Ago By Relient K

Posted in Music Reviews and Interviews

From their beginnings as a campy pop-punk sensation to the commercial successes of the band’s last three consecutive gold albums, there is no doubt that Relient K has grown into the mainstream of alternative rock.  Their forthcoming “Five Score and Seven Years Ago” reflects a new musical and lyrical maturity, but it also made me long for the “old days” of straight-up fun with Matt Theissen (lead vocal/guitar/piano) and his crew.

Posted in Music Reviews and Interviews

  Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest."  (Matthew 11:28, The Message) That verse could be used to sum up John Mark McMillan's newest album.  "The Song Inside The Sounds Of Breaking Down" comes at you like an emotional freight train, and if you manage to stow away for a while, it's a rough but rewarding ride.


Review:  For Freedom By Jimmy Needham

Posted in Music Reviews and Interviews

"Here's yet another college-kid worship attempt.  Hum-drum guitars, a decent but unremarkeable voice, and the loose college praise band behind him."  That's what I thought before I popped the CD in.  Jimmy Needham may look young, but his writing abilities belie any preconceived notions you may form from the CD cover.

by Author Unknown Posted in Music Reviews and Interviews

  In Northeast Ohio you'll find an amusement park called Cedar Point that has the tallest, fastest, steepest roller coaster in the world.
