You may have already heard of this Atlanta-based band through one of the renowned Acquire The Fire events, where they are often playing in front of an audience of thousands of young people. This CD, containing 11 songs of God-centered and relentless worship, is Unhindered's studio debut and was produced by Scotty Wilbanks (NewSong, Third Day). "You Are My Creator" starts the album off with a rocking, yet melodic sound, focusing on God's greatness while "Father Will You Come" is a powerful ballad which intimately expresses the desire to experience God as a father who "calms our waters" and "defeats our darkness". I have especially fallen in love with the closing song "Farewell Lullaby", which talks about a half hearted devotion to Jesus because of fear of embarrassment before pronouncing a desire to be free and unafraid. Even in the rock worship field as crowded as today's scene 'Be' stands out. Altogether an amazing package, just what the next generation of radical worshippers is looking for.
