The follow up from the outstanding Casting Crowns self titled debut, comes their second album, powered by good music and the best lyrics in the Christian music community.
Life song's music is light rock, praise and worship, and contemporary, with the gripping rock song "set me free". The music isn't always spectacular, but it's good. The hit "life song" is a great sounding song for the beginning of the album that may sound just a bit to much like their last CD. Mark Hall has very good vocals as he carry's his tunes well. But like their first one, the final tracks don't make as much of an impact as the first half of the CD does.
Casting Crowns tells a story rather than sings a song, as their lyrics are some of the best on today's Christian music. "Life song" is probably the weakest song in terms of depth. The hits "praise you in the storm" and "does anybody hear her" are wonderful songs, if not overplayed. "Stain Glass masquerade" and "while you were sleeping" are fantastic songs that are very thoughtful.
If not as good as their first CD than it's really close, because Life Song lacks nothing on its lyrics and still has good music.
