"It's rock n roll that you can sink your teeth into..."
In the last couple of years I've reviewed four projects by this band, two double disc chronologies, the studio album Revelation and now the CD/DVD combo Live Revelations. So, why so much product?
Simple answer; everybody loves em! I'm yet to meet someone who actually dislikes this band! People may give a luke-warm response, but you can't dislike these guys. They're honest with their tunes, their lives and their ministry output.
Highlights on this disc have to be the crowd-singing Cry Out To Jesus, the big rock of Otherside and the quite exceptional surprise of the U2 cover, When Love Comes To Town.
Some sensational cameo's from Jars of Clay, Switchfoot and Robert Randolph mean that you may not even notice the absence of Bono and BB King...well, almost! The band is unfaltering and the vocal of Mac Powell will punch a message through your speakers like few others.
A definite high five for the production of a DVD worth watching! Too many discs these days come with an averagely-produced live gig as a bonus extra. You watch it once, then it takes up room in the CD rack. This one follows the band on tour, gives some 'real insights' into the band and shows you the track from the plane to the bus to the stage and back again.
It's rock n roll that you can sink your teeth into and it'll entertain you via the telly and the trannie. Noice.
