"When it comes to describing this band - and particularly this album - I simply can't find the words! After their self-titled debut, I was hooked. But this one blew my mind (almost literally - I turned the volume up too loud!). I've been in Christian music retail, and Christian radio (hosting a rock show), and I've NEVER heard a better overall band. There's not a single track on this album that let's you down. From the opening line and first off-kilter rifs of "Con-Con" to the grooviest remake of Moody Grape's "Murder"... your feet will never stop tapping! (or, if you're a drummer like me, your whole body won't stop playing along!) The blend of voices and instruments is seamless and intimate as much as it is vivid and pulsing. Stephen Murray's vocals are more than impressive: he conveys the whole spectrum of emotions with such intensity and honesty, you can relate to every note and word. Troy Deaton's lead guitar is impeccable... I love the solo/duet with the bass on "Slow"! Tok's bass is smooth, like a nice chilled Dr Pepper. And driving them all is Shane Atkinson, easily one of the top 5 drummers in rock today - Christian or otherwise! The music is flawless, the emotion is raw, the message is undeniable.... this is the Christian life as it is, with all its ups and downs.... Take up the challenge, if you dare - and Christ is there all the way!"
