CUSTOMER REVIEW
This is altogether a very solid album. Although people may criticize this album as dated etc, it is still a gem and classic of the Alternative Christian Rock genre. Notable songs are Cure like sounding tracks: "There is No One Like You" and "Heart Wide Open". I also love the song "The Last Ones" a really intense gothic number. Although this album is altogether a very powerful album in a worshipful, spiritual way, the songs that quickly bring tears to my eyes are "I Will Always Stand By You" (a song about how Jesus is always faithful to us and loves us just the way we are, dispite our inadequacies and failings), and "The Killing" ( a song about the Crucifixion of Jesus and the pain he went through to bring salvation to all who believe). This is a really intense album and unlike so much mediocre cliche Christian music out there this album expresses the heart of God in an extremely passionate and unique way. Sometimes I wish there were more expressive Christian bands like the Violet Burning. These guys really live out their walk in a way that many non Christians could enjoy their albums, as they tend to stick a way from excessive Christianese lingo. This is definitely one of the best Christian albums of the 80s. Other great Christian 80s gems I would recommend would be 77s "Ping Pong Over the Abyss" "All Fall Down" and self-titled, and the Choir's "Chase the Kangaroo".
