Usually I don't go for the contemporary style of music (It's cool just not my favorite) but Casting Crowns truthful lyrics shine through the genre. The beautiful "Stained Glass Masquerade" is sadly very true in the North American church. We all wear masks to hide our pain when the Bible (and psychiatrists)tell us to share our burdens with each other. "Love Them Like Jesus" gently shows us how to love those in grief and troubled times. "Set Me Free" was especially powerful to me because of the struggles I have faced (and continue to face) in my journey. And finally, I truly enjoyed worshiping to "Lifesong" which reminds me how small and broken we are and how big and perfect God is. I'm not liking the direction Casting Crowns seems to be going lately...I think they are starting to lose the cutting edge honesty that makes them so unique. However, this album has remained one of my favorites and gives me hope for the church and for us, broken, stumbling, Christians.
