5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Sophomore Release, September 1, 2005
By Mark Baker (Santa Clarita, CA United States) - See all my reviews
(TOP 100 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Lifesong (Audio CD)
Casting Crowns took the Christian music world by storm with their 2003 debut. Finally they are following up with this second CD. I'm happy to say I like it just as much as the first one.

Once again they share the focus among challenging the body of Christ, encouragement, and worship. The title track is a prayer of dedication really, asking that everything we do may be an act of worship to God. This is reinforced well with the final track which gives the reasons that our "Lifesong" should be singing to God.

"Praise You in this Storm" hit my right off the bat. I like the reminder of the verses that God is with us in the storms of life. I just wish my attitude was more like the chorus of praising Him no matter what.

"Does Anybody Hear Her" is another challenge to get out of our comfort zone, look past our prejudices, and help those around us in need.

"Stained Glass Masquerade" tackles the shallowness of many of us who act like we are perfect people when around Christians. It's a trait I recognize too well in my own life and think I need to really take to heart the challenge presented here.

"Love Them like Jesus" is described as a sequel to "Here I Go Again" from their first CD. It reminds us that our job when comforting others is to point them to Jesus, the only person who can truly help.

"Set Me Free" uses a driving beat to retell the story of a demon possessed man Jesus healed.

"While You Were Sleeping" is the only misstep on the album to me. While I agree with the idea that America is far from God with our policies, I think the comparison between Bethlehem and Jerusalem of Jesus' day goes too far.

"Father, Spirit, Jesus" is a wonderful praise chorus.

"In Me" takes the fear of failure and puts it on Jesus since He's the only way we'll do what He tells us to. Once again, the lyrics are great at reminding me how weak I am on my own but that I have straight in Him.

Finally, "Prodigal" is a great ballad of repentance inspired by the famous parable. Is there no limit to the great songs that can come from that story?

One of the things I liked about the first CD was the great lyrics, and they are still front and center here. It's taken a few extra listens to fully appreciate this CD, but I know I'll be listening to it for a long time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic!, August 30, 2005
By David R. Bess (Charleston, WV) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)      
This review is from: Lifesong (Audio CD)
It's tough for a band like Casting Crowns to follow an initial CD that has become a classic with an equal or better offering. This title however, does that very thing! The lyrics are powerful and Biblical, and the music is top-notch. Each track addresses the church in a prophetic manner, reminiscent of the music of the late Keith Green.

The track "Stained Glass Masquerade" is especially appropriate, challenging church members to pull down spiritual facades and to embrace one another's humanity.

I'm thoroughly impressed -- Lifesong is definitely a must-have for any contemporary Christian music lover!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Effort, December 6, 2006
By K. Fontenot "Prairie Cajun" (The Pelican State) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)      
This review is from: Lifesong (Audio CD)
"Lifesong" is Casting Crowns second studio effort. The title track starts things off with a powerful light rock message. From there, "Praise You In The Storm" is a slower, powerful song about accepting all of the trials and tribulations that are thrown your way and still managing to thank God for them (think Job). It's my favorite song on the album and it's a timely song as well considering the recent onslaught of hurricanse last year. "Does Anybody Hear Her" is another strong song on this album. My second favorite song, "Stained Glass Masquerade," speaks volumes. Hypocrites run rampant throughout every church, and this song addresses them. The rest of the album is just as strong as these first few, especially "While You Were Sleeping."

If you've never heard Casting Crowns before, they are a lot like Mercy Me and even Matt Redman. Also, the lead vocalist, Mark Hall, has a very Steven Curtis Chapman-like sound to his voice. A lot of the music here reminds me of Chapman during the mid 90's.

Overall, a wonderful album for any fan of light rock and bands such as Mercy Me. Highly recommended.
