Pretty good, but not as good as first | Posted September 06, 2007
I have a deep, deep respect for BarlowGirl. They have the most amazing message for teen girls today I wish that every girl could see them in concert just once ( i have had the privilage of seeing them 3 times) and just here what they have to say. They have taking a stand against immodesty, premarrital sex, and other hot topics that plage today's youth.
I have a passion for rock, mostly hard, so I really enjoyed their first album. The second one was Ok, but not my fave. The third... well I was a bit insulted that they would call it a rock album since the main intrument happens to be a violin. Beautiful, moving but puleeze! NOT ROCK! And that is totally Ok, because the sound is not the most important thing about music, it's the lyrics, and the heart of the singer(s), but please don't call it rock, because that's just wrong.
The "Song for the Broken" was so incredible moving and beautiful that I just lost myself in the music. Violins really give me a headache, and a screaming guitar give me pleasue (lol) but the lyrics and the sound of Alyssa Barlow's voice just melted me. The same with "I believe in Love" and "Here's my Life" Just beautiful worship that anyone could get lost in.
"Million Voices" I found to be very encouraging. Sometimes when we look at the trouble in the world and the persicution that Christians are getting we sometimes seem to forget that we are not alone in our battle with the world. We feel so along, like we are the only pine tree in a forest of Palm trees!! Barlow sings "We're a million strong and getting stronger still they'll remember we were here. with a million voices breaking silence till they'll remember we were here." it was very encouraging.
And last but not least, "The Guy Song!" It is a fun, upbeat song that they wrote just for guys! They have seemed to be a band for girls so not wanting to forget about the men in the world they wrote them a song! It's one of my faves now.
The CD is good, and I can see how it will become some people's favorite!
