"I just won a copy of this CD from Christian Rock.net and when I received it, I knew this was going to be a jam packed CD that spreads the message about Jesus. Some of my favorite songs on this CD are "No Place Like Home" because when we're feeling lonely, it reminds us that is there is no place like going home and "Gospel Love." If I could, I give this a 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars."
4 Stars...here's why.

"Without attacking Ben Van Meter and with all due respect to his opinions, I would like to give the "other side of the story" as it were. On the song, "You Are My Son", Chris Padgett's unique vocal style comes through in a more clear way because it's the slowest song on the CD. I did not find the vocals a product of faulty production especially since it is produced by two of the best in the business, John and Dino Elefante. However, Padgett's vocal styling is definitely not for everyone. Those of you who like "normal" vocals will not want to purchase this CD. I also did not find the music style to fall short of its target audience. Scarecrow and Tinmen are not that far away from secular pop rock stars Vertical Horizon. However, the sounds are not identical and a fan of one band is not guaranteed to be a fan of the other.Scarecrow and Tinmen ultimely deliver a CD worth purchasing for those of you who are more adventurous. "Scarecrow and Tinmen" and "Dreamy Light" are the strongest radio friendly songs on the CD while "You Are My Son" delves deep into the love God has for all of his children. On their debut release, S&T delivers a solid effort. Is there room for improvement? Absolutely. Is this CD a complete loss? Absolutely not. Side note: Their sophomore release "Superhero" is the result of the band coming into their own musically and contains the hit "God is Good"."
A truly touching, gospel-driven tour de force!

"This big label release for S & T really showcases the talent and vision of this one-of-a-kind band. The emphasis is Jesus, the music and lyrics are a refreshing break from the mainstream. The songs get in your head. A true blessing."
