  • I hadn’t heard of these guys until Alive first hit the radio. While I really like that track, it was Youth Of the Nation which really hooked me, a sensitive, powerful song which will be inspiration to Christians and non-Christians alike, with an honest look at the problems young people face. It was that which tempted me to buy the CD. Although nothing quite matches YOTN, the overall quality is high.The comment I really can’t understand is that the album is repetitive. While many tracks are rooted in hard rock with a touch of rap, there are also slower moodier numbers and a touch of reggae, with guest performers on several tracks. Things like Ridiculous and Without Jah, Nothing make a nice change from the normal sound, with Ghetto also especially inspirational, and Thinking About Forever takes a subject which causes some horrible songs (the death of your mother) and still carries it off.That the group are Christian may make a little difference to your perspective on the album. I’m not religious myself but I didn’t find it preachy, except for maybe 1 or 2 tracks. It makes a change from much rock and rap endorsing violence, hatred, negativity and mysogeny, which is all very well but doesn’t save people (in any sense). Listening to the CD ought to make you feel happier and more positive about the world as a whole, whatever you believe
