Pillars third album, The Reckoning, sounds more like a debut album, than a popular Christian rock group. They did a shirt from their usual rock sound to a screamo sound; unfortunately the transition was not very smooth.
The album is quite disappointing because their best song is their single "where ever the wind blows" and it's not even rock, to make matters worse is the fact that the radio version is better than the one on the album. The songs "Resolution", "sometimes" and the single "everything" are the best rock songs on the CD. But after that the music isn't really worth mentioning, that includes the title track.
The screaming kills a fair share of the songs, that and the little difference between songs, which pretty much over shadows and highlights of the Reckoning. Pillar, however, showed some skill in song writing, as a lot of their songs are meaningful and have good lyrics, although "angle in disguise" is a bit weird.
A step back for Pillar musically, while their writing might have improved, fans might be writing off the Reckoning of their list.

I personally have all of Pillar's albums. I do like the earlier Rock/Rap combo that was apparently their signature style. However, I must say that this album is to me - their best. I am completely drawn in by the work of their drummer, Lester Estelle Jr., as well as the rest of the band. They definitely have solidified a spot in the afternoon mix of Christian rock playing at work.

This isnt my favorite cd. i like their older albums. I just cannot focus on this cd, i just cant get into it. But that is just my opinion. I think it didnt sound like Pillar used to sound.

The new album from Pillar is better sounding on the ears than Where Do We Go From Here. This album is so good that it has been nominated for a Grammy. Pick this one up.
