Crashings is an album by Christian rock band Falling Up. It generally has a heavy rock sound; however, during songs like "Jacksonfive" and "Falling In Love", it draws upon hip hop and soft piano (respectively). "Broken Heart", "Escalates", and "Bittersweet" were released as singles, and all three hit #1 on the Christian rock charts.
Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Kutless, Anberlin), Falling Up Describes their sound as 'pash rock,? the group combines their influences of rock, hip-hop & R&B. Combining the intensity of modern rock with all the emotion involved in traditional praise and worship, Falling Up is here to prove their radical style is not a fleeting attempt at sticking to a trend, but a true declaration of the passion they hold for their ministry. Crashings features guest vocals from Jon Micah Sumrall from Kutless, Paul Wright and Ryan Clark of Demon Hunter.

This Album takes no falls!| Posted August 06, 2007
Falling Up's beginning CD, Crashing, is an impressive rock album that is a sign of what's to come for the band. The music is alternative rock which offers a great style. The only draw back is there is not enough originality between all 12 tracks, but there are more than a few songs that stick out.
The intro the first song (bittersweet) is only the beginning of a great song and CD. Falling Up doesn't touch hard Rock, but does slow down on a couple of tracks. New Hope Generation" is one of the "stand out" songs, as is the awesome sounding, broken heart.
Unlike future CD's, Falling Up messages are more straight forward. It's a great start, but the Album could have used more diversity.

This band is really good. I love this cd too. My favorite song is bittersweet. I also like Broken heart, New hope generation, and Ambience. this is one of the first christian rock cds i owned, i think the third one. I love it from the beginning, and i still do. So i would recommend this to anyone.

This is honestly one of the best debut cd I've ever heard! You don't have to wonder why Tooth & Nail signed them. Falling Up has a sonic energy that comes through on every song and Jessy Ribordy is an awesome lead singer!!!!!!!!
Incredible!| Posted May 28, 2008
Falling Up is my favorite artist and it all started with this album. Crashings is a great debut and has a ton of great songs. There is only one song I don't completely love, and there are also some really incredible songs, including "Escalates", Bittersweet, and the most played Christian rock single of 2004 "Broken Heart". A great album, must buy.
A Really Good Debut| Posted May 26, 2008
Even though Falling Up's debut album is not up to par from their later releases, this debut has a fun, light-hearted nu-metal sound with catchy lyrics and beats. In just under 40 minutes you will become familiar with any of the old school Falling Up songs from this album.
