Missing Peter but still good
Posted April 05, 2010
So like alot of artists over the years Newsboys have devloped a certin sound that has rocked the Christian music scene. When i got the new EP i was both excited and dissapointed. As far as music goes its great! Simple yet catchy which is a good way to intraduce the new member Michael Tait. But there in lies the problem, Michael Tait. Dont get me wrong i love Michael and have since DC Talk days and i was excited to get to hear him again. But without the Austrailian sound from Peter the album was lacking a little. Its good music, and a very good way to transfer over with simple music to get people jucies flowing but anyone expecting a old Newsboys sound will be outta luck.
Born Again 4/5- Great lyrics yet it has a theme that has been repeated to death in Christian music, however the instramental and vocal aspects of it make up for the worn out theme.
On Your Knees 4/5- A great ballad slow and with a great messege but i just couldnt get into this one that much still good though.
When The Boys Light Up 3/5- Odd lyrics and a beat that they've aready used to many times but the fact that it's about Tait joining them makes up for that.
I'll Be 3.5/5- It was good but slow and once again a worn out theme with simple lyrics. However Taits incredible range on this one makes up for the other stuff.
One Shot 4.5/5- Possibly my favorite track on the whole thing, once agian a worn out theme but made freash by lyrics that i havent seen before and a great way to refresh the theme. Also the beat is great.
