Casting Crowns is becoming my favorite band -Christian and secular. Looking forward to hearing them live in December. Hard to say which is my favorite song ...probably Thrive. I need to be reminded daily that "we were made for so much more than ordinary lives."
I am such a huge Casting Crowns fan that buying their new album was a no-brainer. After listening to it I can definitely say it was not what I had been expecting, though not in a bad way. Their style has definitely changed to more of a syncopated pop genre for this album (as opposed to some of their previous rockers and acoustic bluegrass songs), but the lyrics are still the same rich inspirations of Mark Hall that they have always been.
So, for anyone who is considering buying this album, my advice is to buy it ASAP. You won't be disappointed; just be prepared for a different Casting Crowns sound.
