Energetic, passionate power pop that sets the pulse racing. Musically it is raw, with an energy that is reminiscent of early Delirious? / Fono / Split Level, etc, etc. Lyrically these songs are about passion - whether they are taken from Scripture, written by the band or the band's own versions of other well known songs. Put the music and the lyrics together and you have something that reaches your head, your heart, your feet and your soul. After the first hearing you will be singing along with the hooks as they come song after song and playing along with those power chords. Six songs are recorded in the studio and eight are recorded live but they all have that same intense energy level that makes you want to play this CD again and again and again. After the music finishes one line is said that sums up this CD - "let our lives be as passionate as our music." This is music to change lives. This CD does not have distribution, but deserves to have as wide an audience as possible. Be in at the start of something that could be absolutely amazing and check out and/or
