More About Avalon
Avalon is an American contemporary Christian vocal quartet. The group has earned multiple RIAA-certified gold records, sold four million albums, and released 22 number one Christian hits.
Avalon formed in 1996, setting a high standard in contemporary Christian music. Reviewing its 2006 projectFaith: A Hymns Collection, All Music Guide noted “the vocal efficiency and personalized stylings that place Avalon among the elite singing groups in contemporary Christian circles.” To date, the quartet has sold more than three million albums, charted 20 No. 1 singles, and won an American Music Award plus numerous Dove Awards such as the 1999 Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year for “Testify to Love.” That song, a listener favorite, has also been specially re-recorded for Another Time, Another Place.
For a debut album, this CD really rocks. I wouldn't say that it's Avalon's best, but it definitely would work for any Christian music fan. "Give It Up" is a cool song with cool lyrics. It says to give EVERYTHING up for God. "This Love" shows off the vocals of these four oustanding singers. "The Greatest Story" is a slow ballad that I really enjoy every time I hear it. "Picture Perfect World" is another good one, telling how heaven is going to be someday and what it would be like if our world was perfect. It's pretty much the same story for the remaining songs. OUTSTANDING vocals, (as usual), great songs, great everything... go get it today.
Avalon Debut Album Sep 11, 2005
The CD is in fairly good condition. A small amount of dust.
Awesome mixture of all four of this group's amazing voices Jul 28, 2004
I bought several Avalon albums and have enjoyed and been blessed by every one of them. When I ordered this CD I did not realize that it was their first release, so I was pleasantly surprised at the professionalism and polish of these songs.
All four vocalists use their voices beautifully and they blend amazingly when they harmonize.
Their first track is so profound and reminds us that God hates luke warm Christianity and would rather we be 'hot' or 'cold'. The lyrics of 'Give It Up' very clearly states that it cannot be halfway devotion or torn emotions but that God expects our all, as His love has the power to heal, it has the power to put us back together and we need to give Him 'all of our heart'
My favourite track is 'The Greatest Story Ever Told'. The concept they use here is our lives should refect the greatest story ever told and this reminds me of Paul's Letter where he says that we should be 'living epistles of Christ'.
Every song on this album is beautifully sung and the music is music for the soul.. Their rendition of one of my favourite hymns 'My Jesus, I love Thee' is absolutely the most wonderfully put together song and their voices do it more then justice.
'Saviour Love' is a reminder that God pursues us to the point where we need to sacrifice all to Him and, only then, do we find that we are the pursuers of God. The last track 'Jesus Is Lord' reminds us that we should proclaim that 'He was bruised for our iniquties and was wounded for our transgressions and, because of His sacrifice. we know that He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
Great album from a great group of singers and musicians. You would not be sorry if you bought it!!
I'm Glad i bought this CD!! Feb 10, 2003
This cd has lifted my spirits so many times. I start my Day off with it every day the first 2 songs are so upbeat and just right on "The greatest story ever told" How wonderful and their voices blend wo well together it's like angels. I don't think anyone would be sorry for buying this Cd and anyone who buys it and loves it can thank me later.
Avalon's Debut CD Sep 11, 2002
I honestly first listened to this CD when it had just been released several years back ( in '94 or '95?). It is not as fast paced or vivid as the latest CDs that they have released, but what drew me to this group was their awesome talent in harmony and energy. It is a group that has definitely succeeded in bringining the Christian community a fresh view of the Christian faith.
