Powerful | Posted February-21-2014
This is probably one of the msot powerful books I've ever read. I have went back to his other book "i Kissed Dating Goodbye" we will see how they compare in the next review I write haha

But what made this book powerful was the message. It wasn't based on rules like I was expecting. It was based on where your heart and relationship with God are. It wasn't just like no sex is bad. It explained why the heart and God attribute sex to being a tool for good in the long run and a very spirtual experience.

It took my understanding of basic level recreational dating to a new level. I can honestly say that as a 22 year single man, this book has made me rethink many things and because of this I actually ended a toxic relationship in my life. I can honestly say and will recommend this book to anyone looker for something deeper and to try to fully understand what love essentially is. I don't know if it's because of where I am in my life but this book spoke wonders to me and I know it will do the same to you.

Thought Provoking | Posted September-08-2010
This book is definitely not for the weak minded or weak in spirit. However, being only the latter, the book provided an excellent experience and gave further understanding of what Christianity is at the core. It is an eye opener and not necessarily a page turner but it gives great insight to the ideas of Christianity. It breaks down everything and explains it philosophically which is what is needed to truly understand.

Addiction leads to epic album | Posted October-20-2008
Anyone can dig a hole but it takes a real man to call it home. Is a strongly motivational song for me.

This, like many songs on the new CD is about Spencers addiction to cocaine. In the new Alternative Press they interviewed him and he came out and said he had a serious problem. And although he never formally checked into rehab, he says he is "clean as a whistle." He also said that writing songs about his problem has helped him release his "demons." When he came to the rest of the band with his problem, they basically told him "we dont want you in the band anymore." This really hurt spencer and didnt help his addiction, or his falling in and out of depression.

In the opening line he says "Im no leader Im jsut a mess.....I've led us all astray." To him. He is the face of Underoath along with Aaron... and he is stating that he has run this band into the ground with his problem. He then says "Are we too far gone?" This comes from when the band had a near break up and the peak up his addiction. He then says " I'm afraid no one is listening anymore." Like i said before...when he came to the rest of the band with the news of his addiction, and they turned him away. He was very hurt and was upset that they weren't acting like the Christians they should be. The rest of the song reflects his addiction and his struggle to break it. In the end he talks about "jumping or staying." This is about his battle with depression. Finally at the end of the song he is asking for forgiveness from God for all the wrong he has done.

We've all been there maybe not cocaine, maybe porn, maybe alcohol, I don't know where you've been but we have all been addicted to someone and lashed out wanting someone to listen but no one does. We ask if we have gone to far and no longer can accept forgiveness. This entire Album goes on and proves to us why we need God and how God can forgive us and will forgive us. Many thanks and 5 stars awarded to the brilliance that came out of something bad.

Not quite right | Posted September-26-2008
This band had it all. The extreme talent of Norma Jean and then some. In case you were unaware, Norma Jean was formally know as Luti-Kriss but forced to change their name due to Ludacris or some nonsense like that.

Either way they brought an extreme amount of hardcore mayhem and meshed really well together. It is unfortunate that only 4 of the 6 original members went onto to Norma Jean and then one more former member also joined them.

Norma Jean is as far as I am concerned the re-incarnate of this band and forever will be. So Live on Luti-Kriss in Norma Jean just as is it is meant to be through your hardcore lyrics and extremely talented Guitar solos.

Ant-Decietful | Posted September-24-2008

Norma Jean vocalist Cory Brandan explains The Anti Mother as “The Anti Mother is a character we created which represents anything that is deceptive, and yet possesses an outwardly beautiful nature.” Which makes sense, as the fourth album from the metalcore staple is the most melodic album they’ve created. Going back to work with Redeemer producer Ross Robinson, the band has learned how to channel that aggressiveness into something more melodic, while still being just as destructive as before.

They are clearly firmly developing well. I enjoy the way they are headed and hopefully they continue to be this way.

Norma Jean has cut a path in Metal music, and continues to push boundaries and push limits on the "Anti-Mother" creating a symphony of discourse and chest pounding songs. A perfect addition to an already astonishing catalog of music, "The Anti-Mother" once again why Norma Jean are trend setters, and a leader in the game!

good stuff | Posted September-18-2008
This is a great album. I saw it performed live and it made it even better. The sound is great quality for a band such as this. I am highly impressed with what they are able to do with their talent.

Undiscovered | Posted August-10-2008
This guy is truly an undiscovered artist. His music is able to touch and refine your soul with that powerful moving lyrics. If you are into a slower paced worship album then this is the one to get.

Unimpressive | Posted August-09-2008
Upon seeing them in concert with Underoath. Yes, I do realize they are completely different genres of music. However, I bought their album because on the stage they were very enthusiastic and excited to be here. Listening to it made me realize that they sounded like other bands I have heard. When I hear a band I long for a unique sound to affilate them with and this band did not bring that to the table. As others have mentioned they were like Anberlin Or Relient K and I cannot stand Relient K but I do know their unique sound. This band had no uniqueness and I was very unimpressed.

Rapcore | Posted August-09-2008
This rapcore style of making their music has appealed to me for 3 reasons. 1) IT makes it catchy but not to catchy and annoying like a pop artist would. 2) It gets a point across quickly. The words come at you so fast you can not stop to think about it and when you try to comprehend what they say you realize the deeper meaning to the song. 3) It allows them to mature, this review is long overdue since this is their first album but it allows them to inenevate new ideas and thoughts and styles into their next cds as we see. Rapcore is a good style for them.
