The Problem With Special Editions| Posted August 08, 2007
Alright, I loved the regular edition, but didn't own it. So this comes out, and I pay seven bucks for three more songs that what I would have gotten. I wish I would have gotten the regular edition. Because this is a pathetic excuse for a special edition, in fact, it's just plain lazy.
You get three "New" songs, I had high hopes for "We Exalt Thee". Kutless just got lazy on it. It could have been so much more, it could have been a great worship moment. What do you get instead? Awkwardness. I thought "My Savior, My God" was a cover of Aaron Shust's hit. It isn't, I don't know where it came from, but it's very poorly done. The singing is bad, and the retention of the song is a little under two seconds, but not much less. The last song? The live version of "Strong Tower" that was from the live CD, which Kutless fans already have.
Overall, a useless, pathetic, lazy excuse for a special edition. Get the regular edition, because this is just plain embarrasing.
Different Worship| Posted February 12, 2008
I would have to say that Kutless is my favorite Christian rock group. With that said I was thrilled with Kutless's worship album "Strong Tower". It is impressive from start to finish. It is hard to pick just one song off of this album but I think my favorite is "We Exalt Thee". This is a bonus track not found on the standard edition of the album. Other great tracks are: "We Fall Down", "Take Me In", "Ready For You", "All Who Are Thirsty", "All Of The Words", the title track, "Word of God Speak", "Arms Of Love", and "My Savior And My God". Simply put this is an incredible album.
