The first thing that strikes you about these Tennessee pop rockers is the consistency of their sound. Aside from the lyrics, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this was a secular chart album. So four minute, guitar-based anthems abound. Songs switch between narrative, such as the poppy "Right With You", and worship, like the congregational "We Want The World To Hear". Some of the narrative lyrics sound a tad awkward at times but, on the whole, they work well. There is even a cover of Phil Collins' "Another Day In Paradise", which is surprisingly effective. The songs that really stand out are the raw and catchy "Just Like Somebody Else", the intimate "From Here" and the short but brilliantly upbeat "Blue Skies". If you enjoyed the band's first five albums you'll definitely like this one.
