CD Reviews

Be prepared for a musical extravaganza
(5 out of 5 stars)

"People at first classified this band as a typical grunge band--riding on the coat tails of others. This album as well as their masterpiece of a second album reveal that this rationalization does not even begin to characterize CC and their music. First of all, Marc Byrd is a lyrical genius. He crafts images in your head that don't leave when the song is over and at the same time the words delve into your emotions. Secondly, the music is brilliant, intense, hard, soft, and...well it covers a vast array of music. Every track is a highlight although I like some less than others. "Broken Smile" is one of those ballads that will never go away, "Treasure" is a happy rocker, "Last Time Out" is a surreal journey while "hate" is a acid thrash song. They offer a tremendous variety, deep, thoughtful lyrics, beautiful vocals and harmonies and driving rifts and beats. This album is a must in any Christian alternative or just alternative collection."
Common Children: the most uncommon Christian group

"From the minute CC burst onto the Christian Music scene they had an instant admiration from my friends and I. This album is representative of all facets of the group. Their surreal sounds (broken smile) are accompanied by some flat out moshers (I hate myself) that all make for a well balanced attack on your senses. The band's newest album Delicate Fade is phenominal. This band is only going to get better. If your looking for that Smashing Pumpkins sound then you have found it in these UNcommon artists, they are a real find."
