"This is the second of only two releases by The Channelsurfers. On both cd's they have the sound of veteran recording artists, with a very richly layered sound, both in the production and in the effects and tones they use with their instruments. At times the music is quite different, but it is obvious the bandmates have a strong grasp of music construction, chord voicings, and progressions. The overall sound, to me, is reminiscent of the Chili Peppers. At times it is very funky, with a popping bass line. The lyrics are clever and meaningful and sometimes there is an obvious insider's joke going on. Some songs are primarily related to matters of faith, some relate to personal issues and some are just for fun. I really wish this band had caught on and stuck around. As old as both of their releases are, they still have a very fresh sound. If mainstream is for you, then this band isn't."

"Good stuff, boys and girls! Aaron Scantlen is the new singer, and though he don't sound much like the old singer, he does a real good job! The Rage Against The Machine-isms are for the most part gone, and the result is a very good sounding modern funk...Just like with Tunnel Vision, i'm amazed at how such an obscure band (relatively speaking) can sound so good! the production on the guitars is awesome, and the bass and drums sound good as well...Most of the songs here DO center around Christ and salvation, with the exception of a few..overall, it's just really good stuff, with good Christian words (and a really funny metal parody!)...."Wherever God is that's where i wanna be!"....excellent tunage, yo! buy it!"
Not like their last album at all...

"The Channelsurfer's last album was soooo awesome... crunchy guitars and plenty of funk. The lead vocalist did such a great job. I don't know what the deal is with this new one, but he tends to whine too much. The actual musicianship is quite good, but I bought it expecting more of the same. Sorry folks... you may like the new vocalist, but he's too wimpy for me. Take a listen first if you are used to the old surfers."
