Hard Hitting Realistic Christian Rock Music
uriahtestament | Washington Court House, Ohio | 06/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I see why they call themselves the Normals. So often in Christendom there is a language that is spoken that is not true. We deny that we sin, we deny that we are human and we deny that we ever have a problem. Not these guys they say what they feel in their songs. I have great respect for this group. It helps to see that others are struggling with the same issues that I am in everyday life. Musically I would call them an alternative rock band. If you like Switchfoot's newest album you would like the Normals. They have a classic rock feel to them also. Real hard to explain but lyrically they hit a home run. I heard the song Everything and it just blew my mind. Check it out this is a great CD and a great group."
Can't Get Much Better Than This
chadanddenise | Upstate, NY US | 10/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These guys are great - musically and as "normal" people. The lyrics on Everything always make me stop what I'm doing and listen, really listen - they are true to life. I had the opportunity to run into The Normals a few times and they really do make an effort to reach out to people - they don't just sing about it. Better Than This and Song and Dance are catchy and fast. Running from the Sun is a great "driving" song. Everyone can relate to I Need You - you find yourself singing it right away. One of my favorites on the album is actually Daddy's Girl, it doesn't seem to match the rest of the album, although it's another "story song" like Everything, it doesn't feature Andy's vocals as warmly - but I like the emotion in it. Prepare for quirky lyrics ("It's like walking on ice in socks" - What I Cannot Earn), affirming subjects and incredible guitars. I can't stop listening to Andy, Mark and Clayton!"
Not So Normal
Johnmark | California | 07/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This rates among my top 5 favorite CDs(Nothing is Sound, Sea of Faces, Better Than This, Exit East, Jesus Freak). It has a strong acoustic rock feel. I've never listened to a CD like it. Their definitely not normal. The best track in my opinion is 6: I need you. Whatever the price, I reccomend that you by this CD, you won't regret it. Music just doesn't get any "Better Than This"."
