Though not especially challenging musically, this Maine group of five’s amateur rock custom certainly has a convicting message to present. Their sound is sort of a hit-and-miss piano-led style loosely derived from groups like Fireworks, 2nd Chapter Of Acts and Keith Green (they cover Green’s ‘Asleep In The Light’), with a few sporadic trumpet leads. Sometimes too much in the contemporary gospel/ccm/praise direction for my tastes, but if you pay close attention you’ll notice they can muster up a decent rock edge here and there, including some keyboard and guitar solos. I got a kick out of ‘Romans 13:1’ which speaks to being obedient to the law, with four verses speaking to the speed limit blues, stop sign blues, tape deck blues and income tax law blues. Most songs written by leader Eric Hanson. Cheap sun-through-the-clouds cover photo. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
