Stellar Kart are the punk rock band from Phoenix, Arizona who have broken through in the US CCM scene and have a style similar to that of Blink 182 and Relient K. The catchy guitar work, the wise use of drumming and the energetic vocals make the disk an easy and enjoyable listen. Not only that but the song content is meaningful and thought provoking, whilst giving you something to rock to. The slower songs, such as "Me & Jesus" and " Wishes & Dreams", have us considering how God's love is there for us, whilst songs like "Activate", "Lose Control" and "I Wanna Live" move faster, spurring us on to do God's work and bring fuller life to those around us. Some songs sounded quite similar but that isn't really a bad thing. This is a recording that is willing to admit fear of failure, encouraging taking risks for the good of others.
