South Africa's very own Tree63 first appeared on the US scene in 2000 with its Dove Award-winning, self titled debut for Inpop Records. Multiple No. 1 radio hits, domestic and international tours, and four albums later, the trio comprising John Ellis (guitar, vocals), Darryl Swart (drums) and Daniel Ornellas (bass), returns to the studio for its fifth offering, Sunday! Produced by Joe Baldridge (Beck, Jewel, TobyMac, Family Force Five) at Nashville's Garage Rock studios, Sunday features Tree63's signature contemplative and often confrontational lyrics wrapped in a worshipful sound about the band's love for Jesus and the frustrations that follow being alive in Christ in a world dead with sin.

Every Song Is Awesome!!!!!| Posted September 02, 2009
Tree63 has released several outstanding singles such as "Blessed Be Your Name", "All Over the World", "I Stand For You", "King", and "Sunday", but I'd never heard an entire album of theirs. Now I have! This CD is just purely awesome!
Sunday: This radio single is enough to encompass the entire album...and it nearly does. This catchy fast-paced tune with a lot of electric guitar is a rock song that is worth listening to over and over.
Becoming: This is a catchy tune with a concert-type drive to it. "Becoming" is for the youthful ears.
World Undone: Track 3 has a simply true message and passionate vocals. "Your Kingdom come/to a world undone". Definitely a keeper.
Alright: A simple tune and repetitive lyrically, this is a comfort song for those in need.
Foolishness: A song based on the apostle Paul's words in the Bible that the kingdom of God is foolishness to those who don't know Him. An excellent tune and an even better message.
There Is A Kingdom That Cannot Be Shaken: With a particularly long title, this track is so catchy and the message - in tune as well, as always!
Almighty Silence: Tree63 is really putting good music out there, and this track shows it. This is about God's silence when Jesus was hanging on the cross. Painfully realistic.
Walking Home With You: This is about God's neverending companionship with His believers. The wonderful road of the Christian is laid out in detail here. With good music as well, this one cannot be thrown away!
Not As This World: Here begins the guitar-fused anthem of Tree63. With catchy guitar licks and still an outstanding message, track 9 does it for this trio.
New Creation: From the famous Scripture verse, this song adds in great guitar and wonderful lyrics.
The Revolution: An excellent ending for an excellent CD, this electric guitar oriented track has perhaps the greatest message. Wonderful!!!!
Tree63 has really done it with this grand album. I anticipate their next studio release. For Tree63, this declares that they can play!

I had high hopes for this album when I listened to it. I had heard the single "Sunday" and was incredibly impressed. Catchy and with good lyrics. The rest of the album was pretty good but not fantastic. Of course, I rarely like this type of worship/gospel sound anyways, so the fact that I liked it at all is very impressive. I would defintely reccomend it to anyone who likes their style.
