Old School Hymns For A New School World| Posted January 17, 2012
Classic hymns such as "Down By The Riverside" and "The Lord's Prayer" are given an awesomely refreshing infusion of Americana and Celtic-like roots rhythms that make them sound novel and very relevant to the day and time in which we live. The spare arrangements, a little banjo here and a loose piano there, allow us to hear Greer's uniquely lean yet emphatic vocal quiver that is well-suited to these creatively inspiring arrangements. This, as a whole project, is one of the best sacred music albums I've ever had the pleasure of hearing.
Old School Hymns Given A New School Vibe| Posted January 17, 2012
I've never listened to Andrew Greer until today, and I have to say he has a super incredible voice. I honestly cannot stop listening. I usually don't like old hymns - of course the words to the old hymns are beautiful, but I just don't care for how tired they sound, Andrew Greer took that tired sound and made it exciting. For those of you that think like me - that the old hymns need a new school take - this album is worth the listen!
Bluegrass Gospel| Posted January 17, 2012
I don't really consider myself an expert in musical style so I could very easily be wrong but it seemed like a bluegrass style of gospel. It was definately a strong style that a person would either love or hate. Personally I would never listen to it again. But the production was very good, the vocals were creative and the instrumentation was snappy. If you like traditional gospel music, old time country music and of course the lyrics of these hymns then I think you would really like the freshness of this rendition.

Worth Dying For is the worship band that you want at your church. These folks are on fire for the Lord! I love the explosive energy that they bring to each track and Pastor Jeremy's spoken words pack an extra punch calling us out of this world and into His.
