Artist discography


With their sophomore release NeedToBreathe come back strong from Atlantic Records with "The Heat." Starting off with the short almost country sounding intro "Spare The Time" and then busting out with their signature pop rock sound with "Restless," this album continues to show their growth as musicians.

This band shows off their amazing musicianship and songwriting abilities. Displaying that these guys can write a catchy pp rock album that will capture you within the first track. After hearing the first few tracks, they had me wondering what was coming next.

With showing off their pop rock skills they also have a very intimate raw country-ish side to them on this effort. Using country like slide guitars and beating bass drum in "More Time" this really shows everyone a cool side mixed with the catchy melodic side of the band.

The really catchy radio rocker "Signature of Divine," is the catchiest song on the album and really driving and powerful chorus. The only negative thing I have for this album is the singer doesn’t really do much with his voice making some of the tracks seem repetitive. Other than that these songs are really good and these guys know how to write a catchy Christian rock ballad. For fans of Splender, Sanctus Real, Maintsay.

3 stars ??? Are you kidding ? Listen to this album again. For me, without any doubt, one of the best pop rock album of the year. Better than the first so 5 five stars.

3 Stars? That's it? One of the best albums of the year imo.
