Perfect perky background music

"First off, I'm a huge David Crowder Band fan, so take that bias into account. If you're unfamiliar with what he has to offer, I recommend his album "Can You Hear Us?" and, of course, the original "Illuminate."

"Sunsets and Sushi" is more like an EP than a full album, offering only eight remixed songs. Each is different from its original, but the remixes (as noted by other reviewers) are not hard-core dance pop (the way, say, Britney Spears remix singles tend to be). They're mostly electronified, with a little more reverb here, a little sampling and repetition there. I love listening to it while I work, although it is a little unusual for DCB to be relegated to background music, I listen to his normal albums in the background as well.

To illustrate, "No One Like You," a loud, fast high from the original CD, becomes a contemplative pop-rock number with shades of dance-music sampling. Or take one of my favorite DCB songs ever, "Deliver Me." Sarah Brightman originated it, and he did a driving, melancholy version on "Illuminate" with a Christian chorus tacked on at the end to give it a lift. The remix loses the driving sadness and desperation and verges instead on eerie trip-hop. It's not better or worse, just different; I happen to like all three versions.

I definitely wouldn't recommend this album *instead* of the original "Illuminate," as these songs are more about sound than passion or emotion. But it makes a great addition to a Crowder fan's collection."

"I highly recomment this cd to not only fans of David Crowder, but to fans of good, well-programmed electronic music everywhere. For those unfamiliar with the band's work they're actually a rock band. This album however, is an "electronic" interpertation of their album ILLUMINATE - not really remixes of the songs from that album (which is what I was expecting). These songs are completely different. The DCB (David Crowder Band) didn't take the easy way out and through a dance beat and some synthesizers under perviously recorded songs like most bands do when offering albums like this. No, they gave the listener brand new songs.

If I was driving thru a city on a rainy night...this is the album I'd play. I don't say this to suggest the songs are sad or depressing, (because they're not. they're actually beautiful and remind me of HOPE), but I say this in that these songs make me feel like I'm on a mysterious journey. And isn't that what our life with GOD is? He's the leader. This is the album I'd play while traveling down roads unkown, lead by a great king."
