Yep, they've done it again!!
Posted May 01, 2008
This is another FANTASTIC release from Avalon!! After two extremely successful projects, the group came back stronger than ever on their 1999 studio release, In A Different Light. This album is considered by many as the group's best ever, which features the chart-topping shash hits "Can't Live A Day", "Always Have, Always Will", "Take You At Your Word", and "In Not Of". With production help from CCM masterminds Brown Bannister and Grant Cunningham, Avalon matured more than ever on this project with cool pop tunes and of course more heartfelt ballads. Although this material doesn't stray away from the Avalon that everyone has come to know (it doesn't take many risks musically), that doesn't take away from IADL's beautiful lyrics and (of course) flawless vocals. Although the last few tracks almost seem to drag with ballads on the heavy side, the songs' inspring messages and irresistible melody lines make up for it!! "Let Your Love", one of the catchiest on the album, is a big toe-tapper and will really get you movin', while "I'm Speechless" will leave you just that--SPEECHLESS. Overall, another fabulous, RIAA-certified effort from Avalon... a must-buy for any avid fan of Contemporary Christian Music.
