Streets (Sunshine LPS 293-01) 1980?

 

 

Impressive custom rock production from 3-guy 2-girl Illinois outfit. Eternity regularly serves up sturdy rockers that pay off with a driving beat and exciting electric guitar action, while organ and background synthesizer flesh out the sound and add a few ‘80s AOR edges. That’s what you hear on tracks like ‘Greater Love’, ‘It Don’t Matter’, ‘Once Upon A Time’ and ‘Flow On’. Crosses over into disco rock with saxophone for ‘I Wanna Be’. Even the slower songs like ‘You Are My Light’ and ‘Thank You, Lord’ build up some decent power-ballad dynamics. Not as heavy as groups like The Living Sacrifice Band, but the female lead vocals (roughly half the songs) sometimes nudge them in the same direction. The production is good, yet retains the private press vibes (i.e., it’s not the glossy cleaned-up “Christian rock” sound you get on bigger labels). From The Apostolic Church in Belleville, Illinois. Same small label as Logos’ Sharper Than A Two-Edged Sword.      (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
