AN ATMOSPHERE OF HOPE
Posted September 29, 2008
By CCMmagazine,


Recently the band Sevenglory teamed up with World Vision, becoming what front man Fred Butson terms “something bigger than ourselves”…a theme wrought carefully throughout their latest album, Atmosphere. After the quietly released 2006 debut Over the Rooftops, the trio tightened up their instrumentation, added guitarist Josh Parsons, and polished their songwriting.

The result? Better, more authentic rock, with a running theme of hopefulness. The band succeeds with “The Hope” where Butson’s remarkably crisp vocals (similar to the soothing vibrados of Phil Wickham) mesh well with the simple instrumentation. “The Best is Yet to Come” features a catchy melody, an original drum backbeat, and a falsetto chorus that is right on pitch. “Show me the Light” offers a glimmer of creativity with the chorus, “Show me the light/burning from the inside/what good is a light that we hide?” Unfortunately, the peppy “Just Me,” co-written with pop sensation Brandon Heath, suffers an unoriginal tune and lyrics.

Atmosphere holds definite promise for the quartet, just not enough to ebb it out of mediocrity into greatness. Once the band starts to carve out a unique niche (instead of generic rock), they will certainly offer an atmosphere of hope for fans everywhere. - Grace Cartwright
