There's only one thing to say about the latest from the North Carolina pop rockers - it rocks. I don't really know which tracks to draw potential purchasers to because there isn't a bad song on here. The opening track "'Made For You"' is interesting, and this is followed by a brilliant duet with Dawn Michelle from Fireflight. "One Foot" is the first one with an anthemic type sound, a real sing along song, but the best example of this (and the best track, in my opinion) is "Where I Belong" - I can just imagine a crowd punching the air to it. And the last few are just as interesting as the first. If I had to compare them to another band, it would probably be Third Day. They do have something similar about them, in that they display their softer side as well as their heavier side, to great effect (though I was also reminded of East West in places). The singer, Jason Roy, at times sounds a little like Mac but there is still plenty of originality in his timbre and phrasing. If you enjoyed Building 429's previous CCM hits, you will love this set. I love it, and will definitely be recommending it to pretty much everyone I know.
