Light Up the Sky by The Afters
First Look: ***** I discovered this band through Susie magazine (formerly Brio).
Vocals: ***** Awesome. Really. And they have just proved that Justin Bieber isn't the only one who can have a high voice (that's a compliment, mind you. It's only for one song.).
Music: ***** I love songs with good piano parts, and that...pretty much describes this whole album. Add violins and more piano, and all the usual pop stuff (technical term, there), and you've got a recipe for awesome.
Cleanness: ***** Well, yeah. It's Christian. :)
Lyrics: ***** Whoever writes these songs is talented. They're uplifting and tell a story. They actually mean something, which is more than what a lot of today's artists can say.
Uniqueness: ***** They're a little like OneRepublic. Well, actually, a lot, but that's okay because OneRepublic is my favorite artist of all time.
My Favorite Song: Right now, Runaway is number one. Why? Because it fits perfectly with Secrets of the Legend Chaser! It's rare to come across something that fits so well. Say It Now is a close second.
Likes: Ah...I think it's all been said up there. ^
Dislikes: None that I can think of now.
Overall: ***** Buy it, if you're looking for a OneRepublicish contemporary Christian band. It's current, but not edgy and they actually sing (rather than rap). What more could you want?
