"Parade is by far one of Go Fish's greatest works. Out of Breath and Part of the Proof proudly display Go Fish's "acappella with an attitude," while "Created For This" tries to capture the live concert atmosphere. With "Infectious," the music wavers from the strong vocal base that Go Fish is known for, though the songs are still very beautiful, touching, and exciting. Watch out... here comes "Parade"! ...an absolute must-have for your CD collection. Go Fish has really put together the best of all worlds-their acappella, rock, praise and worship... The song "Tonight" is invigorating, and expresses the thrilling, upbeat concert atmosphere. It's absolutely exciting. "The Hand Song" is by far the most touching song on "Parade." It's a story song that really grabs your attention and holds it. As for "Please Please Like Me"-the first song on the album-it starts out perfectly... with acappella. What better way to set the stage for the group that's known for their "acappella with an attitude"? The song makes it clear that it doesn't matter so much how people judge the men in Go Fish. Rather, it's how God views them. As the song says: "I have an audience of one, and you're not Him." Another song, "Piece of Heaven" clearly empathizes with the loss of a loved one. The vocals shine especially in this song, and the heart-felt message is beautiful. The song "Parade" expresses a very interesting point of view. It says that while we may not see all that's going on, God sees "the whole parade," and he knows "just where I'm going." "Chrome Fish" lets the listener imagine how non-Christians may view Christians. Christians may put chrome fish on their dashboards, they may have a Bible sitting next to them, and play Christian music, but "is there anything behind your chrome fish anyway?" "No chrome fish could take the place/ of what people see when your faith is on the line." The song "Chrome Fish" really challenges Christians to live what they believe.
Also, for those who have "Infectious"... did you ever wonder what the mystery object from the hidden track was? Well, wonder no more... it's completed on "Parade"!
"We now return to the cantata entitled `What Did You See' by the group Go Fish"...
Good music, poignant lyrics, a return to a strong vocal base, and a message focused on God.
Let's continue the fun!"
I hate parades but this CD ROCKS!!

"Go fish is a great band for all ages, young and old. My favorite song on the album has to be the Hand Song. I rate it a 5/5. The first time I heard it I cried (I don't cry ever during movies, songs ect.). That's how touching it is. Please Please like me 3/5 pretty good song but not my thing. Ask 2/5 not my favorite. Savior 3/5 to soft for me but a nice song. The Hand Song 5/5 as I said. Alright 4/5 that's just what it is, alright but not my favorite. Parade 4/5 pretty good yet not my favorite song. Lullaby 2/5 bed time only!! Piece of Heaven 4/5 nice song. Perfect Love 5/5 this and the Hand song are the main reason I got the CD. Chrome Fish 4/5 pretty funny song. Tonight 5/5 Awsome song to sing along to. The bonus track What did you see 5/5 WAY TO FUNNY TO SAY!"
