The seven-piece contemporary Christian rock group, Caleb's Crossing, released their self-titled, debut album recently.
For those inclined toward this genre of music, the album is spot-on. The opening track "Scream" is a rock ballad to the Lord that beckons you to "scream at the top of your lungs and shout it so loud that all can hear it." The female vocalist really brings the song together with her harmonies. The listener can easily imagine hearing this and getting chills in one of the mega-churches that have so much embraced the genre lately.
The third track, "Not That Far From Home," attempts hard-rock guitar riffs, but is definitely a weaker track than -- and not as interesting musically as -- "Scream."
"Won't Look Back," the seventh track on the album, with its mellow string start, gradually builds throughout the song, with sweet melodies and steady-growing rhythm from the drums. "I won't look back, I'm moving on" sings the lead vocalist. This is a great track and that invites one to listen again and again.
The final track, "Your Love," is probably the most honest tune on the album, and seems like it comes from the heart and soul of the writers. "So take me and lead me after your heart" is exactly what this song does; the beauty of it rings true.
