Perfect For Any Newsboys Fan
Posted September 03, 2007
Don't get me wrong, the Newsboys are a great band, from the 90's. I'm less than of a fan of their work in the past 7 years. This limited edition CD is great for any Newsboys fan. While the new tracks don't amount to hardly anything, and they're hardly worth the time, the DVD portion is great. The DVD takes you behind the scenes with each band member at the time. These moments are a must for every fan, as by the time each video is finished, you get a great feel for each of these guys as a person.
The highlight is Paul Colman, who is the band's newest member, and a hilarious one at that. His lines are classic, and his personality is infectious in every way. And his Bob Dylan singing "Shine" act is one for the ages.
The newest ex-Newsboy is Phil Joel, and his segment on the other hand is agonizingly boring. The guy has a quiet personality, and isn't the type guy who is going to randomly do something. It gets stranger when they follow him to get a guitar autographed by "Frampton". I assume it's Peter Frampton, but it's impossible to tell since the guy Joel sees is playing guitar in a field, naked, and blurred by the camera.
Each member's segment is also a bio of sorts, we meet their parents, see how they got started in music, and how they came into Newsboys.
Overall, a must-have for any fan. Even those who aren't fans, but love the CD, will love the extra bonus, and for those who didn't like the CD, they'll love Paul Colman.
