'Make Some Noise'
Posted January 23, 2009
When I first started to listen to Krystal Meyer's music, I enjoyed her bold messages which were obviously personal and very authentic as well as her loud punk sound with edgy guitar riffs.
Two cds later and Krystal enters an entirely new realm of music:pop. I was introduced to 'Make Some Noise' slowly, through the titletrack and was immedicalty hooked.
Whether this is a sign of Meyer's newfound maturity after a self-confessed period of 'desert-time' with God, or just a welcome evolution to more dancy rythms, Krystal's new style sure does captivate the senses.
The major type of songs on the album is pop including 'Shine', 'Make Some Noise', 'Love it Away'etc. etc. These mostly subtly return to the topic of anticonformity, while others discuss God's love and a Christian's relationship with Him. 'Beautiful Tonight' continues the message in 'The Situation' from Dying for a Heart in an interesting new perspective on purety.
The other type of songs is the slower, sometimes guitar driven (and at times, more punk) melodies of (amongst others) 'Up to You', 'S. O. S' and 'My Freedom'. These are mostly heartfelt songs calling out to God to 'Save Our Souls'.
The only drawbacks in this album is that the similar styles can sometimes become a bit tedious and that the message of some songs, such as 'Up to You' is somewhat unclear and sounds excessivley secular, but an overall stellar album that grips the mind.
If this album was eatable, I'd compare it with a rasberry fizz lollipop with sherbet. Fresh, sweet and interesting, but yet with more depth than realised at the first listen that grows on you with time.
