Worth a listen
Posted May 25, 2008
Dizmas is a fun band, and their first major label release stays true to who they are and what they do best. I was hesitant to pick this album up at first, since half of it is re-released songs from their first two albums. The selection was good, including Jealousy Hurst, This is a Warning, and Redemption, Passion, Glory. I would have liked to see Let This One Stay make the cut as well, but that's just a matter of personal taste. In terms fo the big picture, it probably would have been out of place on this album, so I can't fault its exclusion.
Even with the small number of new songs, this album is worth getting a hold of, on the strength of the new music. Yours will grab you on the first listen with it's anthemic (in a modern rock kind of way) celebration of our Creator and catchy guitar hooks, while Save the Day nicely epitomizes the Dizmas sound. Worth Fighting For and Different also fit this mold, though with a milder (but far from dull) approach.
One you put this album in your cd player, it is hard to remove!
