REVIEW : Day of Fire - Losing All

I've returned from my brief 'moving' absence with a review of Day of Fire's third album. This is a must-own for any fan of hard rock, especially the last song. In coming weeks I'll also be reviewing Sanctus Real's latest along with A Hope for Home and The Classic Crime. Stay tuned!

REVIEW : Darkroom - Stay Here With Me (For Better or for Worse)

Darkroom is a true indie band, releasing their sophomore album on their own once again. Stay Here With Me... is an album worth owning if you enjoy your music laced with beautiful sounds from trumpets, strings, pianos, and a xylophone behind a powerful vocal effort. Need something to brighten your day? Darkoom is the answer.

REVIEW : The Access - The Time Has Come

As my final review for the end of a decade I'll revisit a missed worship album that deserves attention. The Access released their debut in 2008 and they are worth checking out if you are a fan of other worship bands like Casting Crowns and Leeland. The Access do their part in making music that stands out from their contemporaries.

REVIEW : Cool Hand Luke - The Fires of Life

In light of the end of a decade and the fact the end of this year is going to be REALLY slow on new releases I'm going to be reviewing some old gems from this past decade as well as some duds. It's to fill out our database of albums as well as prepare for the Best of 2000's lists the staff is working on. Here's a beauty by Cool Hand Luke that shouldn't be missed!

REVIEW : Switchfoot - Nothing Is Sound

It's week 5 of our 7 Weeks of Switchfoot and that means the 2005 release, Nothing Is Sound, is up to bat. You likely won't find many albums that flow better than this one from one track to the next and if you've missed out you can get it for $2 new at Amazon! Just be sure to give it time to grow on you.

REVIEW : Switchfoot - New Way to Be Human

Welcome to the second week of '7 Weeks of Switchfoot'! Today we explore their sophomore album, New Way to Be Human which was released in 1999. You know, back when everyone was still freaking out about Y2K. Looks silly in hindsight no? This album sure doesn't as they capitalized on their debut in every way.
