Fresh Beats and Hope
Posted August 17, 2009

'All That Matters' was the first single off of this, Addison Road's first album on INO Records after a string of indie projects, and if your local Christian radio station is anything like mine--you heard this song a couple times a day and by the end of the week, you knew all the words by heart. So needless to say, after hearing the song a few hunded times, I had to run out and buy this album.

It starts off with the earthy and upbeat song 'This Could Be Our Day' about living our lives to the fullest every day and letting nothing fall to the wayside. 'All That Matters' is up next followed up by 'Sticking With You', another upbeat pop song about God never leaving our side.

'Hope Now' is the standout track on the album. Musically sounding much like Leeland and The Fray with the electronic melodies that make the song ebb and flow, and with lyrics so simple yet so powerful as 'I Am Not My Own, I've Been Carried By You All My Life' , this is sure to be one of your favorites on the album as well.

'Start Over Again' runs long but with the same electronic beats as 'Hope', it will leave fans wanting more...'It Just Takes One' takes a clever turn musically. Whimiscal and upbeat, a lot is going on in this song. Sounding almost like a collaboration between tobyMac and Newsboys, with the same message as 'This Could Be Our Day' about making a diffrence in the world around us.

'Always Love' follows the same suit of fresh beats with a hopeful message while the album slows itself down again with the wake-up call song 'Casualties' about the world slowing dying around us in need of a Savior, and the lyrically chilling and musically moving 'Run' (my favorite track on the whole album).

The most current single off this album closes it with a punch. 'What Do I Know Of Holy', Just lead singer Jenny Simmons vocals and a piano, tackles the issue of authentic Christiananity, anbd what it truly means to follow Christ with our whole hearts. A very moving song--whether or not you buy this whole album this one at least worth listening to.

This was one of my favorite debut albums from 2008. Fresh beats and the consistant message of hope running through the album are sure to leave any listener satisfied. I look forward to seeing what the band comes out with next--if your a fan of of some of the more modern earthy pop bands--Addison Road is the band for you.
