Concert Review: Follow You Tour

November 9, 2009

Leeland, Brandon Heath, and special guest Francesca Battistelli at Remingtons, in Springfield MO, on October 31, 2009.  To get the concert rolling, everybody came out at once and did a couple songs, though I’m not sure what they were. Also, because this concert happened on Halloween, the bands decided to dress up as The Goonies. Leeland Mooring […]

Concert Review: Clayton Risner and Travis Flynn

October 1, 2009

Clayton Risner and Travis Flynn at Hebrews Coffee, in Springfield, MO, September 29, 2009.    Travis Flynn opened up the set, but he had some guitar tuning issues, so there was a slight delay. His style is a lot like Jimmy Needham, a sort of folk acoustic sound. My favorite song was Another Lonely Night in Tennessee, […]

In the Hands of God by Newsboys is lead singer Peter Furler’s (the last remaining original member) last album as a member of Newsboys, the job being taken over by Michael Tait, former member of dc talk.   The album starts off with the first of the two songs that reflect on Peter Furler’s time with Newsboys, “The […]

Review: Switchfoot – Learning to Breathe

September 11, 2009

         Learning to Breathe by Switchfoot is my favorite album right now, for three reasons. The lyrical poetry (in ALL the songs), singer Jon Foreman’s one-of-a-kind vocals, and the catchy tunes.   It starts off with I Dare You to Move, the original recording of the hit from their next album, The Beautiful […]

Review: Take Me to Your Leader – Newsboys

August 25, 2009

This is one of the best Newsboys albums ever. One of the reasons is the raw sound of it, and probably also because Duncan Phillips is JUST on percussion.   Take Me to Your Leader starts off with God is Not a Secret, a great opening song, next is the title track, one of my favorite Newsboys songs ever. […]

Review: The O.C. Supertones – Supertones Strike Back

August 19, 2009

Supertones Strike Back by The O.C. Supertones is a great Christian ska album. It starts off with the title track, which is very good. The next standout song is Perseverance of the Saints; it has a great verse, and a great chorus. The next song Like No One Else can get a bit annoying, but […]
