As you’ve probably guessed already, this is a greatest hits compilation. It begins with “Long Way Back” which has a raw, gritty honkytonk sound rather reminiscent of The Rolling Stones, which seem to be a large influence on the band. The later tracks would be best categorised (that is the bane of the reviewer and the band alike – boxes and pigeonholes) as blue-collar American rock. This is an enjoyable mixture of Three Crosses’ work, highlighted by songs such as “I Have Never Seen The Wind” and “Calvary”. Having said that, hover, I did find the lyrics to “Universe” and “Michelangelo” pretty weak and ill-conceived. But that little niggle aside, this is a pleasant enough album, and for those not familiar with Three Crosses, a good way to get a general idea of their music. Not a brilliant album by any means, but not bad either.

I have Three crosses and Jefferson Street still. I love this sound. Wish i could find other Christian bands along this style. Hard to find the quality put out by three crosses.

The music of Three Crosses continues to speak to me like no other. I'm hoping to see a return.

At the moment I'm listening to Three Crosses on Spotify - it says you can buy their albums from them. (I've got them all anyway...)
These are three excellent albums!

Man, I absolutely loved 3 Crosses. Found two of their CDs in a used CD store when I converted back in 2000, and those CDs have fed me and just really helped me in my walk. It amazes me you guys didn't make it big - I think some of the songs are just incredible.

Years ago you guys helped get me back into Christian music. I'm still writing alot. I was trying to tell someone about the song Mission Bell and haven't been able to locate the CD. You guys had a great sound. I hope you're still working somewhere for Him.

I was looking for some new music to bring to my church, I'm the contemporary music leader there and I remembered these guys. I like the wide eyed look from people when introducing them to a more progressive sound and still keeping the faith. Thanks Guys. .t
