So I haven’t done an album review in a longggg time, and so I decided to do one when I heard Fireflights new album… because well… it’s amazing. :D
I wasn’t a huge fan of their 3rd album (For those who wait). It just wasn’t as impressive as “Unbreakable”. That album was unbelievable, and I loved seeing them in concert when they toured with it. I was nervous that this album wasn’t going to be as amazing as it could be, but it is definitely right back up there with “Unbreakable”.
In this album they incorporate some electronic to their normally impressive rock sound. Dawn’s voice is amazing as usual, and the guitar is especially great in some of the songs.
Songs are as follows:
1. Stay Close
4. He Weeps
5. Keeping Me Alive
6. Stronger than You Think
7. Prove Me Wrong
8. Dying for Your Love
9. Rise Above
The lyrics are really inspirational and encouraging. It is geared more towards those who are struggling with bad situations in life. “He Weeps” poses and answers the question of where is God when there is suffering. I definitely like this song a lot. My favorite song for upbeat goodness is “Now” and “Stronger than You Think”. The guitar is so catchy and awesome sounding. :)
Overall the lyrics are great. The music is great. And the vocals are perfect. BUY THIS ALBUM!

So, I have to say that I am super proud of the Christian music world lately. They’re producing music that is good enough to use on television. We’ve come a long way from having not the greatest music ever, but good lyrics. Yeah for the best of both worlds!
Ok so I know that this is a music blog, BUT! I can’t help but spazz out for a second because I just got accepted to Anderson University. I’m so thankful to God, and overall stoked. :D :D :D
It’s not about how many people you lead or the platform in which you have to lead worship it’s about your secret place, it’s about worshiping in spirit and in truth, knowing the fathers heart and proclaiming who He is. If leading worship is about you then you’re really worshiping yourself and not God. You have an opportunity to point others to God through worship but in order to lead you must really let Him lead.
Ok so first off the name of this album is super long, which confused me. Until I realized there are like 34 songs on this thing. It is so diverse it’s sort of unbelievable. The genres that I’d say are held within this treasure trove of song are: country, singer songwriter, acoustic, your average Contemporary Christian of the moment, techno ish stuff, hymns, and classical music thrown on top for good measure.
I was sort of confused with the concept of this album, but it definitely has something for everyone on it. In fact, I guarantee that you will like at least one song on this album. You can get the whole album for $12 on Amazon. I don’t know that I’ll be buying the whole album. I’m still unsure if I like the album as a whole or not. But! I’d definitely check it out and see if you like it. It is their last album together so I’d at least pay my respects by looking into the album.
Happy Listening! :)
