This is everything I've been waiting for from Five Iron.
This will please the Rock N Roll fans and the old school Ska fans.

If I was the punk rock purest of my youth, this album might have actually offended me.

But... taking this album at face value, it's actually not too bad.

The melodies are...

GREAT BLUEGRASS FOLK CROSSOVER | Posted February-11-2015
You have got to listen to this album. It'll remind you of other fun, thoughtful bluegrass and folk you've listened to before, but you've feel happier after hearing it....and hearing it....and hearing it. And you gotta see them live. I havn't had that much fun at a concert since the old school five iron frenzy days.

So Far, So Great. | Posted November-26-2013

This is everything I've been waiting for from Five Iron.

This will please the Rock N Roll fans and the old school Ska fans.

They didn't just come back and casually put out an album for the sake of the masses. It's actually some of the best written melody's and lyrics they have ever done. You can't hold a great band down!

Is the same Hawk Nelson? | Posted March-28-2013

The melodies are fun to listen to, and ejoyable to have stuck in your head.

I dont really like live albums, but when I do, it's from Gungor | Posted October-09-2012
There's an expectation when you listen to a Gungor album that it's going to be great music, but also different.

Yes, different in a good way...a great way.



The Gungor concert experience is probably not going to be like the other concerts you've been too, and that's a good thing.



Their creative ability and talents are outstanding, but they don't go overboard with their creativity to where the unfamiliar sound is distracting or weird. On the other hand, it helps you experience God in a new and fresh way.

The different musical elements, from bluegrass to pop, blend perfectly on this album. It's so nice to hear some original music, and you can tell that's exactly what Gungor is trying to accomplish.  We don't all worship God in the exact same way because we are all created differently, so why does "worship music" have to fit with a certain sound or method. It's obvious on this album that it doesn't.

another good one from Kearney | Posted August-02-2011
This album is right in line with what we've come to expect from Mat Kearney.

The rhythm and melodies are smooth enough to make you feel relaxed on a late summer day, but poppy enough to get stuck in your head for a fun weekend.

Combine that with thoughtful and inspiring lyrics, and this is one to keep on your ipod rotation.
