In an era when a lot of Christian rock groups are turning to rap-rock, aping such successful mainstream artists as Linkin Park, Kutless emerges with an album of melodic hard rock. Kutless' mainstream influences are clearly such guitar-heavy yet tuneful groups as Creed and Fuel, and the Christian quartet actually holds up pretty well against their secular counterparts. "Your Touch" is a particular highlight, featuring a wall of guitar muscle and modern rock hooks galore. "Run," meanwhile, is an affecting rock ballad. As one would expect, themes of spirituality crop up throughout. On "Down," a girl wrestles with self-image, while "Again" dwells even more directly on faith with its discussion of God's love. Overall this is a strong debut, and like the Supertones before them, Kutless rises above a lot of the bands in this sometimes-justly maligned genre.

"Run" is a great song. Unfortunately the rest of the album is just a bad rock album. Nothing interesting, nothing new, nothing that strikes you as good. So a bad debut for Kutless, which makes since since self-titled albums usually turn out bad anyways. Relient K, Kutless, Lifehouse, all turned out bad. This is no exception.

If you think Kutless' newer stuff would be better if they were a post-grunge band, this album is for you. Of course they throw in some of the great worship that people have come to expect from these guys.

This isn't my favorite, but it's still really good. My favorite song is your touch. I also like run, tonight, and pride away. This is a really good debut cd. Look where it got them now!

Kutless is a very good album because helps hard rock lovers like me remember that it`s the words are the thing that counts.
you can like the distortion and the music but listen to the words.

I love, Love, LOVE this CD! I love the raw rock sound and the passion included. I fell in love with this band early on and still follow them and their progress. They're amazing!

Kutless is a great band. With that said I wasn't all that impressed by their self-titled debut. Though it does boast my personal favorite Kutless song "Grace And Love", the complete album was not spectacular. "Run", "Vow", "Again", "This Time", and "Saved" are good tracks but the rest of the album is so-so, in my opinion. But even Kutless's weakest record is powerful. I would still recommend any of Kutless's records to anyone that likes a little rock.
