American band In Due Time might have an unashamedly old school sound but they are gloriously vocal about their faith in Christ. Curtis Curry's lyrics have moved forward since 2003's 'Back To Basics' album, covering subjects ranging from beleaguered faith in '"Crushed And Conquered" to a courteous head nod towards parental guidance in "Dedication". Whereas there are no tracks that really leap out at you, that fact works to their favour as you are happy to listen all the way through the album without skipping to the "best tracks." Unfortunately, when compared to their contemporaries such as labelmates War Of Ages or Facedown's Bloodlined Calligraphy, the songs seem to move in a lump-fisted way. This might be down to IDT's "keep it simple" approach, but we can only hope that this strategy pays them back in time as it's leaving them a little behind the pack at the moment.
