Tree63 are in the premier league of contemporary Christian rock acts and this new CD, which is produced by Joe (Family Force 5, dc talk), is as polished and bullet proof as they come. The good news is that the 11 tracks all come with plenty of guitars and big, open choruses. The bad news is there is a slight sense of déjà vu about all this, because several other big acts have all released CDs in the last year and some of the songs are beginning to sound the same. It's quite difficult to listen to "Alright" on this album and not think of "Every Little Thing" by Delirious? However, that is more a reflection of the industry itself, and not on this group. The stand out tracks are "Becoming", "The Revolution" and "World Undone" which highlight John Ellis' ability both as a singer and as a songwriter, which is growing with every recording they make. 'Sunday!' is full of integrity and honesty about spiritual matters and musically Tree63 do not put a foot wrong.

I agree with you Daniel Johnson but I always thought that Tree63 is a great group......Underrated though!!

This is their best album since "Life and Times" - it's honest, it rocks, the songs are tight and crisp. Tree63 are urgent again, they matter again and it's about time!!
