I can't speak, so I will type. The energy on this album is ridiculous. The lyrics are deep and full of love, however this is not bubble-gum pop that doesn't change lives. This entire album is a call to action. Just listen to the lyrics on "Crazy Enough:" "Reaching out to the ones who need help/
Treating them as you first would treat yourself/
Now that would be insane..." The whole theme of this album is to be counter-cultural, and to live out the biblical mandate of loving your neighbor as you love yourself. The honesty of "Beautiful" is touching, and will be played (or should be played) at many daughter-daddy dances. The mixing is superb, Bart's vocals are top notch and shows a lot of range. Everyone's (as in the band) beats through each of these songs. While many songs don't sound like MercyMe, it's only because the rawness of their previous songs. Everything is polished, and neatly done. You will enjoy this even if you aren't a MercyMe fan. Awesome!
