A Sweet Intro
Posted June 29, 2012
Over the past 13 years, the Canadian band Downhere has consistently produced good music. This first official album, released in 2001 (discounting the first independent album released in 1999) is different than their latest stuff.
While good, this album shows the band's tentative first wadings into the world of CCM. As evidenced by their winning of the 2002 Covenant award for Rock Album of the year, their entry was well-recieved.
With everything from smooth and contemplative songs (Larger than Life, Great Are You, Calmer of the Storm, Breathing In, So Blue, All The Reasons Why) to hand-clapping toe-tapping peppy songs (Free Me Up, Reconcile, Raincoat, Making Me, From Protest to Praise) and ending with a tongue-in-cheek little number (Rockstars Need Money), this album is a definite winner.
Personally, I give it four out of five, because I prefer their newer music. But if you don't have this in your musical arsenal, you need to get it! It's pretty legit :)
