Can't Deny the Formula Works!| Posted June 16, 2008
I'm a bit predisposed to like the vocal style since I liked BarlowGirl's 1st two releases and I love Plumb and Evanescence. Something I like even better about this release are the powerful lyrics. Particularly, the songs "Here's My Life", "I Believe In Love", "Million Voices" and "Song for the Broken" really jumped out at me.
Barlow Girl keeps getting better| Posted July 23, 2008 How Can We be Silent is, in my opinion, Barlow Girl's best CD yet. Compared to the albums Barlow Girl and Another Journal Entry, this album has more depth and meaning. All the songs hit Christianity and real-life issues head-on. The lyrics are so inspiring and have so much depth; the word "ouch" ran through my head a few times when listening to the words. The music is bound to inspire and relate to people of all walks of life. Also, the melodies are more mellow than the band's past albums. How Can We Be Silent is worth every penny!
Good, sophiticated pop/rock.| Posted October 11, 2007
This album is not a revolution in sound but rather a progression. While " another jounral entry" was more raw and energetic with songs like "grey" and "let go" this album is lighter and more ambient, just take a listen to the first radio single "here's my life" to know what I mean. The fact that this change has taken place is not bad at all, infact it shows a new found maturity in their music. But even if you wanted more of the high voltage rock energy of their previous efforts, songs like "a million voices" and "take my chances" will do the trick. And if your looking for something new the jazzy "one more round" will provide a pleasant surprise. Overall this is pleasant and sophisticated pop/rock different from previous efforts by BarlowGirl but still a solid and mature album on it's own.
Great| Posted June 10, 2012
I really love this CD. The songs are moving and passionate with great vocal style and instrumentation. One of my favorite songs is "I believe in love." This song is so beautiful it makes me want to cry. This is a great Barlowgirl CD every fan should buy.
Brillance!!| Posted May 17, 2011
I've been listening to BarlowGirl since I was in middle school. I still think that their message is great. They are great role models and their morals and beliefs are in their music. It's really positive and it gives me a sense of hope when I listen to it. God Bless them and their music ministry.
Okay| Posted September 04, 2009
it was okay...I prefer their first two Cd's because it was more energetic and I could relate to the lyrics. The lyrics in this Cd are more mature but the music puts you to sleep and I found the vocals to be annoying after the third song.. :/
War| Posted September 02, 2009
We are in the midst of a war and yet most people (especially Christians) won't except this fact. They want to beleive that everything is ok. Barlow girl in this album expresses the fact we are in a war against the darkness. And Satan is attacking our young people more than he is our "elders" of the church. This album encourages us not to give in but to step it up a notch and start fighting for God and for the sake of salvation amoung the unsaved in this world. This album is by far my favorite album. Everytime I listen to it I get pumped and ready to throw down. So devil....let's go "One More Round"....

BarlowGirl Goes Another Round| Posted January 15, 2009
They’ve done it again.
BarlowGirl has been churning out hits since their 2004 self-titled debut album, and it’s evident that they’ve grown tremendously since then, musically, lyrically, and spiritually.
The first five tracks show a darker rock, almost Evanescence-like sound. The vocals are hauntingly beautiful and harmonious, and the lyrics are deep and expertly woven together. Once you pass the halfway point, the songs lean a bit more towards the pop/rock sound of Another Journal Entry, and they even throw in a little bit of jazz on “One More Round.”
“Song for the Broken” does an excellent job of introducing the album, rocking while showing off the girls’ voices. They admit to being broken people and not any better than the rest of us.
Placing the song “Keep Quiet” just before “Million Voices” was a clever move--the former asks “Jesus, Jesus, why’s Your name so offensive? Why are we so scared to tell this world You’ve saved us?” and the latter says that we’re “a million strong and getting stronger still…they’ll remember we were here.” It’s a reassurance that we’re not alone in our beliefs.
“One More Round” was a standout from the beginning. It’s jazzy and laid-back sounding, until you get to the taunting chorus--“So take me one more round/I’ll just keep fighting/One more round/You’re messing me up, but I’m still here.” They’re telling the world that no matter how many times we get knocked down, we’re ALWAYS able to get back up again.
“The Guy Song” is, well, a guy anthem…slightly odd coming from a group of girls, but the guys need it. “I Don’t Regret” ends the album on a lovely note, telling God that they don’t regret letting him lead their lives.
Lyrically, they once again tackle relevant issues that hit close to home with many of us--believing in and trusting God with everything (“I Believe In Love,” “Here’s My Life”), being vocal about your beliefs (“Keep Quiet,” “Million Voices,” “Take My Chances”), and granting forgiveness to others (“Sweet Revenge”). One of the best lines on “Sweet Revenge” says “Break these chains, won’t see this through/’Cause setting you free/It means my freedom too.”
Overall, another fantastic release from BarlowGirl. Definitely pick up a copy.
