If there is one word that sums up a relationship with Jesus, it is intimacy. 'Iris To Iris' is about an intimacy where two see eye to eye. This is the fifth studio album and the band's third major release, preceded by 'Space In Between Us' in 2004 and 'Rise' in 2006. Thankfully it is one that shows a musical and lyrical maturity. "Grace That Is Greater" (than all my sin) speaks of one of the most important aspects to grasp about Christianity, and the security that it provides. The song is possibly one of the most important sermons we all need to hear. The guitar-led stadium rock is anthemic and even though touring with the likes of Sonicflood, Casting Crowns and Tait of dc Talk fame, the comparison with Third Day is obvious, even if it is just for the strong, manly vocals. The album breaks down the divide between worship and more performance orientated rock with the congregational focussed "Majesty" and "You Are So Beautiful" being standouts. In fact the driving theme is so uplifting it would easily get a whole stadium up out of their seats. These guys won GMA's new Artist Of The Year in 2005 and judging by this release they are going to be around for the long haul.

I definitely agree with this part of the review. You can tell this has been inspired by the Lord.
