CD Reviews

Superb tribute album packs a punch
JB | Cincinnati, OH | 06/25/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have listened to Wes King's music for years-- his lyrics are incredibly powerful, are derived directly from the Bible and really force the listener to think. This tribute CD contains Wes' best work recorded by driven indie bands. The combination of rich, lyrical writing coupled with the intensity and clarity of the younger bands communicates the Gospel in a manner that commands attention. The production is superb, from hard rock numbers to crystal-clear solo female voices, the arrangements are uniformly excellent. The whole project was crafted in love with a real servant attitude as an attempt to help Wes' family pay medical bills. Wes had a type of lymphoma that is very difficult to treat and has a high mortality. The best part of this whole project is the outcome-- Wes survived! Life is Precious belongs in your CD library."
One of the best tribute projects... ever.

(5 out of 5 stars)

""Life is Precious by Life Is Precious, Wes King Tribute" is simply one of the best tribute projects ever created. Each artist on the project took the time to create their own arrangements of Wes King's original songs and made them their own. It is obvious that much love went into the creation of each track. The styles range from rock, to piano/vocal, to folk, yet the project has a very strong cohesiveness despite the divergent styles. The project drips with artistry yet remains accessible due in great part Wes King's amazing song writing. Wes King fans should give it a listen just to hear a fresh take on Wes' classic songs. Music lovers in general should give it a listen because it is one of the best projects in recent years."
Very GREAT compilation!

Give it a spin!"
