Synopsis

Amazon.com
You've got to be pretty good to open for the pope. So it's no surprise that the Supertones, fresh off their January 1999 opening gig for the Papal One in front of 68,000 people in St. Louis, have a release worthy of any audience. Chase the Sun, the band's third album, builds on the ska-driven mold the group has forged and offers up another dose of riddims, rap, and rollicking fun. Both the opening "One Voice" and "Fade Away" showcase power-chord rock rhythms broken only by the skintight staccato horn section. "Away from You," the first single, is indeed radio-friendly and will draw strong comparisons to classic Bob Marley. The 'tones can even slow down, as evidenced by "Old Friend" and the final, reflective "Refuge (In Conclusion)." --Michael Lyttle

With age and time they just get better and better!!!

"The Supertones just keep coming up with deeper and more powerful lyrics. The song Health and Wealth(13) is a perfect exapmle. We Americans are so materialistic and ethnocentric, they point it out. I think that some younger people will not understand such deeper lyrics but this is what's on his (Matt M.) mind. I like this album more than the previous two, mostly because of the different sounds of the songs. Again with each album the lyric content just becomes more meaningful. Dedication (5) this song talks about the sacrifice we make when sharing the gospel, another awesome song. Refuge is another song which I feel is so refreshing and a great way to conclude the album. It is just a song that calms me down when times get bad. SUPERTONES ROCK!!"
Incrediable introduction to Christian rock

"I was introduced to this CD by a good friend. I am a new believer, and often found other bands too offensive or forward. For a new listener to anything Christian, I found the OC Supertones gave me the music I wanted with the message I was searching for. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
