Coming off the heels of a stellar debut release, Kutless releases its sophomore disc Sea of Faces. Produced by Aaron Sprinkle, Sea of Faces is the type of disc to make a band's career. The discs rockers, like "Not What You See" and "Treason," are studio spit-shined. Sprinkles production touches throughout give the opus the legs to stride to the next level. While the band members seem completely at ease with the heavier cuts, they really shine on the mid-tempo and slow tunes. The title track utilizes piano and acoustic guitars to deliver a poignant cut with lyrics to match. "Perspectives" again finds the band cutting back during the verse while the chorus pinnacles into a rock nugget. When the band utilizes both electric and acoustic guitars, the songs really seem to come to life. Check out the sincerity on "All the Words" or the introspection on "It's Like Me." Sea of Faces is a rock masterpiece. Kutless has completely delivered the goods while retaining the charm possessed on its debut disc. This opus is well-written, well-presented, and musically rich throughout.

Kutless Is Here To Stay| Posted January 27, 2008
Kutless releases their sophomore album Sea Of Faces and boy is it good. It's a bit mellow than their debut but this one is really good. Jon Micah Sumrall sounds really good on this album and all of the songs are great.
By Changing Your Angle| Posted December 10, 2007
After buying this album and giving it a couple of spins it found its way into my CD rack and seemed destined not to resurface. My first impression was very ho-hum. To my ear every song seemed almost indistinguishable from the next, and certainly indistinguishable from the milieu of current rock at the time. It wasn't terrible or anything, but not that good either and certainly forgettable. On a whim, I recently decided to give it another chance and I played it again with much the same response...until I got to the last song. Tucked neatly away at the end of this CD is a gem of a song called "It's Like Me" which not only grabbed my attention but impressed me in every way that matters. On the strength of that song alone Sea Of Faces was added into regular circulation and I noticed that the more attention I paid this album the better it got. After a while the substance of this album became evident and the strength of some of the other songs began to shine out. I doubt this CD will ever become a favourite, but it certainly contains some quality songs and it does seem to grow on you. I guess you just have to give some albums serious attention and not always expect to be blown away straight out of the gates.
Personal Highlights: Let You In / Sea Of Faces / It's Like Me
Personal Low Points: Troubled Heart / Passion

There are several songs on the album that retain Kutless's ability to rock, but most of the album is boring. They're pretty good at ballads and worship but they were better at rock which they started to lose in this album. It's not a bad album, but it could have been so much better.
One of my favorites!| Posted January 22, 2008
This is my favorite cd from Kutless out of all of their stuff thus far. Every song is so unique, but all of them are rocking-which is what these guys do best. "Treason" is awesome!
