Not the original band? So what? It's still good
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Here's the opinion of a middle-aged Christian rocker: this line-up of SonicFlood is good. "Resonate" is uplifting and accessible worship music. It's not "groundbreaking" as some considered Sonicflood's earlier works, but that's not the goal of worship music; leading people to enter into relationship with God is the goal. This album succeeds.
Sonicflood is maturing from it's formative days and that's great to hear. This takes nothing away from earlier albums - it's just part of life.Check out their latest album "Cry Holy" - it's even better than Resonate."
Not bad...but not fantastic either!

"First off, what others have said about this being a very different sound than SonicPraise is absolutely true! That, in and of itself, isn't a BAD thing...it's just that if you're looking for more of what you got on SonicPraise, you'll be disappointed. If you're OK with something a little different, then read on!
Aside from being a different sound, the best I can say about this CD is that it's just OK. When I first put the CD in, the first word that came to mind was "campy"...it's a little more fluffy than previous outings. Since then, the CD's grown on me more, although it'll never occupy a space in my "Can't live without" section. While everything is executed pretty well, there's just nothing new or groundbreaking here, either musically or lyrically. I also felt like some songs had a needless overabundance of goofy sound effects. Basically, while SonicPraise had more of a "live" feel to it, this is very definitely a studio album with a much more polished sound.
All in all, it's an enjoyable CD to listen to, but it won't knock your socks off and you probably won't be compelled to listen to it over and over."
Solid 3rd release

"This is a solid release from SonicFlood. Jeff Deyo isn't with the band any longer but it's still great music with great lyrics. If you liked SonicFlood's earlier releases you'll like this one as well."
