Rush of Fools [Wonder of the World]
Posted October 07, 2008
“Following on the heels of an unmatched debut year, Midas Records group, Rush Of Fools is preparing for the release of its highly-anticipated project, Wonder Of The World. Slated to release nationwide September 16, 2008, the sophomore effort is reminiscent of the band's debut release, filled with passionate lyrics and contemporary, hooky melodies, yet takes the band to a new level musically, personally and spiritually.”
This album was an exciting one. It was interesting to hear what the band had in store for us after such a great debut album. Some of the songs just spoke and grabbed me immediately. The first song on this album “There is Nothing” speaks about just that, there is nothing. There is nothing that we can do on this earth that you (the Lord) can’t save us from. No matter how much we mess up and how bad things get You are always there ready to save us from it all.
The next song that stood out was “Holy One”. This song speaks. Part of the chorus says “All other noise, fades away / Like all of the fear, when your voice I hear / You’re beckoning me, to come and just be a child at your feet / seeing my need for thee.” The last verse in this song says “Your’re enough to satisfy / When the world has left me only dry. Enough to save my life, when the world has left me here to die.”
The eighth song on this album, “Tonight” also had some interesting lyrics. It speaks about God’s unconditional love. It says “Cause You give when You should take away / And You take what should have been my pain / And You offer good when I've none in me / You're the only love that makes me complete.” God will never walk away from us. We don’t deserve the love He bestows upon us but He is always there to give to us.
These couple of songs I have picked are just a sample of what the rest of this album has to offer. I don’t know what I would do without the love of God. If you ever have any doubts on God’s love, then this is the album to pop in the CD player and be reminded as to why we were created and what our duties are as to while we are on this earth.
This was a good follow up album. I enjoyed listening to the music and what the lyrics had to offer and how it affected me personally. This album (compared to the first) to me seemed a little more mellow. It had more of a worshipful attitude. It showed how versatile the band is. I would like to wish continued success in there ministry and future albums. Always keep your focus on God and continue to give everything up to him and you will be greatly rewarded and truly blessed. Thank You.
