WONDER PROVES SOLID, JUST NOT ORIGINAL
Posted September 29, 2008
By CMCentral,


Coming out of the studio with all-new material and playing to its strengths, Rush of Fools’ sophomore release, Wonder of the World, is distinctly worshipful. After releasing a successful debut and garnering multiple Dove nominations, there has been great anticipation for what’s next from these Alabama natives. With a considerable amount of self-proclaimed growth over the past two years musically, creatively and lyrically, Rush of Fools confidently picks up the musical reigns with clear direction in mind to stick to who they are and to their calling for worship.

Opening track “There is Nothing” quickly leads right into a big chorus that begs listeners to sing along. Many tracks contain agreeable, familiar beats with catchy melodies that crescendo into massively powerful choruses, including the title track and first single, “Wonder of the World,” as well as “You Are Glory” and “Escape.”

Fools’ more up-tempo rocker and sure to be crowd-pleaser is “Lose It All.” With balance and good measure, there are also strong, yet more contemplative offerings such as synth, piano and acoustic driven songs like “Holy One,” “Tonight,” “Never Far Away” and “The Only Thing That’s Beautiful In Me.”

With ultra-ambient and progressive instrumentation, what appears to be most intentional in the band’s approach to this release is that these songs appeal and move the live audience. Collectively, the tracks are extremely corporate worship friendly and invite you to join in singing along with a big crowd, certain to incite a passionate live experience. The lyrical content contains straightforward elements of Biblical truth. Rush of Fools has succeeded in its transparency about the “Wonder of the World” and continually points listeners back to God, His word, His purposes, His timing and His ways. –Penelope Stone
