A Noteworthy Release
Posted November 11, 2011
I recieved a copy of the Born Again: Miracles Edition at the Uprise Festival in Shippensburg, Pa this past September. Now, let it be said that I have been a fan of the Newsboys since the days that Peter Furler was part of the band. Regardless, I was sad to hear that the Newsboys were breaking up a few years ago. Let it also be said that I have been a fan of dc Talk for a while too. I used to rock out to their Single "Jesus Freak" all the time. So it was sad to see that band fade away as well. Then, this past year, I attended Winter Jam in Reading, PA and was surprised to see Newsboys finishing off the night. What also surprised me was to see Michael Tait as the lead singer for the band! And let it be said, they put on quite a show!!
Now, the point of this lengthy intro was to explain that a majority of the song they preformed at Winter Jam came from their new album "Born Again". After the concert was over, I knew I had to get a hold of the album. Sadly, I did not have the opportunity to get a copy at the concert. It would be almost 6 months later until I had the opportunity to acquire a copy of the album. But the album I recieved was even better than I thought. I attended Uprise Festival in Shippensburg, PA where the Newsboys closed the concert again. As a promo, the band gave out free Born Again: Miracle Editon albums to the fans. So, I finally had my copy. And I was so greatful to get it too.
The album contains the content from the Born Again (Delux Edition) as well as some new remixes of favorites from the CD, including "Mighty to Save (Family Force 5 Remix). One favorite of mine is "When the Boys Light Up", which tells the story of the band break up and its reforming.
All in all, Born Again: Miracles Edition contains upbeat and uplifting music that everyone can enjoy. The Newsboys, old and new still stick to the main purpose of bringing glory to the Creator.
