A new favorite
Posted November 21, 2012
Nine Lashes' World We View is one of the most unique sounding rock albums I've heard in a long time. The very first track, "Anthem of the Lonely," takes a stand for Christ... even if that means to stand alone. Something this band makes no bones about. Their heart is to share God's love. No question. This world needs a little more of that. My daughters and I really like "Get Back." When this song comes on, we sing along, and sometimes I'll hear them just start singing it on their own. And they often ask me to play it again. "Adrenaline" features guest vocals from Thousand Foot Krutch's Trevor McNevan. It's a fast, almost chaotic anthem. And I love it. "Our Darkest Day" features guest vocals from Demon Hunter's Ryan Clark. Now normally I don't care much for screamed vocals, but there's enough of the smooth Nine Lashes melodies that I totally miss the screamed bridge or background vocals. It's not enough scream to make me want to skip the track. It's still a good song and I guess it's appropriate that Clark screams "through the darkest days I will scream your name aloud." I enjoy listening from front to back, top to bottom. World We View will stay at the top of my favorite rock albums list for a long time.
