I am a channel changer. There. I said it. My ears are sensitive to music with a lot of loud clashing cymbals and percussion. There is plenty of percussion and a great beat, but this doesn't hurt my ears... well, not if it's at a reasonable volume. ~grin~ One thing about me, I'm nobody's target market. The songs on this album do not make me want to change channels. I enjoy them.
I was excited when I heard the song Fighting my Battles. I think this is a song I may hear in my church in the near future. It is a glorious, depend-on-God song.
This music is so upbeat, it invigorates me. Hmm... this might good house cleaning music! I'm listening to Time of my Life right now. My head is bopping back and forth. It makes me feel young (51 if you're wondering).
Wake Up My Heart is an awesome song of devotion and crying out to the Holy Spirit to awaken our hearts out of their slumber... something we truly need in the United States, and the world. It's an anthem song that I can imagine being sung around the world.
The members of the Afters have lived through some very difficult times recently. They've really pressed into God, and this album shows their devotion to God.
My teen girls' favorite track was "Shadows".
Amy's (15) Thoughts:
I think it was a good CD, with good music. You should consider getting this CD if you like Contemporary Christian music. I like the songs "Shadows", "Wake Up My Heart", and "Sunrise". It's upbeat. Over all, I enjoyed it, and I give this CD a 4 1/2 star rating...great!
Emily's (19) Thoughts:
It was good Christian album, kind of a fun CD. It has a cool sound to it. It's a fun CD.
Listen in and see what you think!
