I heard Pillar a couple year ago at a concert with 5 bands, and I didn't like them much then; so I've never looked back into them. That is until now. I thought I'd give them another go(or maybe an actual go :P) So I decided to listen to For The Love Of The Game, and I have to say this album is great.
For The Love Of The Game starts out with the song of the same name and rocks out with a great message. Then it goes to a clever song called "Turn It Up" which is probably one of my favorite songs on the album. It's very smart in the way it uses Christian album titles in the song to create a very good song. Honestly, most of the album's songs seem to be well thought out and promoting great causes. Like "Reckless Youth" which promotes sharing your faith recklessly in the sense of not caring what anyone, but God thinks. And then "State of Emergency" which talks about us needing to take action to reach the world for Christ instead of just sitting back in our distractions. And that's just scratching the surface of this great album.
I think these guys are a little harder than I typically listen to. That's probably why I didn't enjoy them that much several years ago. Therefore that may turn some of you away from this album, but as long as you enjoy harder rock this album should be in your collection. I personally will have to pick this up sometime in the future when I see it on sale. Since other albums are currently ahead of this, but don't let that turn you away from this album. It's still a great album.
My Score: 8.8
