An Underrated Album That Deserves More
Posted August 08, 2007
MWS, or Smitty, has been around forever, or pretty close. However, I wasn't a big fan of his earlier work, it just wasn't my cup of tea. It just seems too old fashioned. Unfortunately after this album he went back to that format. But, after a good 15 years MWS had to change his format, do something different, or at least for part of the album. The result? His best work in my opinion.
The first two songs are MWS's best songs of his career. They're different, they're good, one is peppy, one is somberish. (Is that even a word?) It continues through a good first half of the album, then I would say it get boring again, and becomes just like his old work. So did he just use that because he already had it, and he didn't have anything better? Anyways, they're not as good as the first part, and they feel out of place.
The weird thing is nobody remembers this. Before this review, there was nothing on this website, and there's currently no review on JFH. So what's the deal? People didn't like the experiment. His fans are all over the age of thirty, and they didn't like the change. So it's an underrated album, like most great albums are. But hey, what do you expect when Casting Crowns is worshipped and hailed as the greatest thing since Jesus Christ himself walked the earth. Oooh, dagger. I'll get hate mail for that.
