While "Until The Whole World Hears" was good in some respects, it sounded more like a sophmore slump than the fourth CD from a successful, award-winning band. To me, that CD was a misstep especially since it was new songs weaved with covers. Now, "Come to the Well," was a return to what made Casting Crows so successful: a straightforward hard hitting message wrapped with tight production, beautiful singing, and fresh music. CC took a risk in "Spirit Wind," and I believe it paid off. I believe they have returned to their form last seen on "Lifesong." Overall this is a great CD. But I am sure there are bound to be haters. I must remind people that CC has been more about the ministry than the music since they started this gig.
