Review

“Church Music” is the title of the newest album of the David Crowder*Band. What can you expect from a title like that? Of course an organ and a big black gospel choir would be the obvious thought of many people. What a disappointment will this one be for those people! It’s nothing more than a great melodic, electronic poprock ride with soaring vocals, bombastic melodies and rockin’ guitars. One of DC*B’s previous albums “A collision” was a huge surprise to many, me included. “Remedy” didn’t quite reach the same level as “A collision” but was still a good album that was more on the safer side than “A collision”. DC*B is a band that is not easy to pinpoint. De lyrics are almost all the time thought-provoking and original, not the basic cliché-stuff. The songs are catchy and are richly filled with piano’s, guitars and electronic sounds. Any type of song is performed with great skill. You can tell that these guys are around in the scene for a long time. Some tracks are even dance-tracks like “Eastern Hymn”, “The Veil” and “We are loved”. Elements of Newsboys come to mind listening to these songs. Other songs worth mentioning are the title song, which is a disco-song (yeah, really!), the great cover of Flyleaf’s “All around me” and the beautiful ballad “How He loves”. Oh, I forgot to mention the rocker “God Almighty, none compares”. This song has many tempo-changes and culminates into a great twin guitarsolo! DC*B again created a great piece of music. “Church Music” definitely warmed my heart, it will heat-up yours too and that’s a promise.
