Reviewed by Stephen Curry

The first album 'Weights & Measures' by the Minneapolis-based pop rockers received some attention but 'Finding Our Way' has a more cohesive feel with new producers (Jeff Schneeweis and Seth Moseley) and a set of 10 songs which all have catchy melodies and great hooks and are undoubtedly radio friendly. Nonetheless, they still contain expressions of faith and trust in the midst of personal struggles and challenges. The highlight is the upbeat drum-driven "Power & Love" taking its call from 1Timothy 1:7 where God gives us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind and not a spirit of fear, and the keyboard led "More Than Famous" which is an overt worship offering proclaiming God's presence to be more precious than any fame we might seek. Other tracks such as the emotional and acoustic "Well Done" or the electric guitar dominated "Wandering & Waiting" provide contrasting styles but the overall consistency of this album is such that it creates a constant interest in the songs to keep you listening again and again.
