The Golden Rule [edit]
by Above The Golden State | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: January 26, 2010

Known for their catchy guitar riffs and sing-a-long hooks, rock/pop trio Above The Golden State has spent a year and a half creatively crafting songs for their sophomore release The Golden Rule that inspire Christians to live to love those around them. In communities, neighboring cities, throughout the US and across the world not just through what is said, but what actions support faith. Above The Golden State delivers the message in a way that youth and adult alike can be encouraged by in their everyday walk with Christ through blending thought-provoking lyrics, memorable hooks, and a one-of-a-kind Portland, OR style sound.

Needs more Songs for Hit | Posted February 25, 2010
Above the Golden State's second release is great. The Golden Rule and I am Loved stand out more than any other. But there choice to go only with six songs may or may not pay off for them. Hopefully their fans will want more.

If this goes gold | Posted January 28, 2010
I'd be surprised. It'd be a funny headline, but.....I like the songs well enough, it's just that nothing stood out extremely. That being said, I like the 2 songs they're offering free, "I Am Loved" and "The Golden Rule" (chorus a little obvious on the latter though.)

nice | Posted January 27, 2010
This album is their best yet. The songs have good lyrics and a meaning behind them. I think that this album will be a big hit and every one will be talking about Above the Golden State.

Good as Gold | Posted January 23, 2010
The latest release by Portland, OR based rockers Above the Golden State is both satisfying and disappointing at the same time. Satisfying, in that it is in fact a Christian Album, and if it were not for the rock music, one might think it's a modern worship release. That is refreshing to me, in that most Christian music these days seem to have been purged of Christianity. It's good to hear a group unashamed of the gospel "love your savior and your neighbor as yourself" just one line as an example.

Now to the disappointment. IT'S ONLY SIX SONGS. I may be the only one, but I am only lukewarm toward the recent trend to the EP. I really like the full 10 to 14 song CD. Maybe it's because I grew up with the Vinyl Album (kids, ask your parents), but even though bands tend to release more EPs a year, as opposed to 1 full album, I prefer a CD to an EP.

It is for that reason alone, (and the fact that it's only January), that I am holding back a half star and not putting this as one of the Best Releases of 2010. There is hope, as I consider Breaking the Silence by The Letter Black, also an EP, as one of my Top 10 of 2009. Only time will tell if it was a wise decision to "always leave them wanting more."
