Synopsis

Product Description
To best understand Larry Norman, you should realize that the man is a dichotomy, in the grandest sense of the word. While other rock stars existed to follow the prepackaged template to a tee - even if that meant punishing another seemingly innocent hotel room - Norman existed on an entirely different plain. He was the church boy holding his own in the decadent world of rock music, an insubordinate jester with a rebellious streak that stretched out long before the birth of punk, and a performer whose raw energy, spiritual force, and playful wit made him the endearing rock icon he is today.1975's In Another Land is honest, raw and humble. With this album, (Part 3 of his famous Trilogy), Norman showed he was a force to be reckoned with. 1972's Only Visiting the Planet had already taken root and shook the hallowed doors of CCM. In Another Land took it farther, producing a seminal inspiration of musicians for over 30 years. Now, as his songs have been covered by everyone from DC Talk to Frank Black (Pixies), it is worth looking at the originals.In Another Land contains some of his most well-known songs, including The Rock That Doesn't Roll, Righteous Rocker #3, Six Sixty Six, and I Am a Servant.'He was a lone wolf. He looked different, sounded different and he presented his beliefs in a way that rang true. Larry Norman knows what he's doing and if you haven't noticed, you should.' - Frank Black (Pixies)'The most significant artist in his field' - Time Magazine
'A maverick' - Entertainment Weekly
'Thematically controversial' - Paste Magazine
'A creative genius' - Huffington Post
'A huge inspiration' - Harp Magazine
'The most important writer since Paul Simon.' - Billboard Magazine
'Enormously influential' - USA Today
'A powerful lyricist and master of obliqueness.' - London Guardian

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Just like the two earlier parts of The Trilogy - "Only Visiting This Planet" and "So Long Ago the Garden" - "In Another Land" shows how great Larry Norman was. He was such an important person for Christian rock music. If you don't belive it - you must listen to rockin' tracks like "The Rock That Doesn't Roll" and "I've Searched All Around". Although this is the least good of The Trilogy - it has many memorable moments, such as "Six Sixty Six", "U.F.O.", "I Am a Servant", and "If God Is My Father". Also the new version of the classic "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus" is great. Unfortunately, many of the songs are too short - I mean the songs like "Diamonds" and "Hymn To The Last Generation" - they seem to end before they really start. But still - Larry's lyrics are touching and his voice was brilliant in these albums - the albums still rule the Christian rock music.
