Limp Bizkit of christian rock Jun 1, 2004
I remember the first time I listened to this cd that I liked it, but I didn't love it. I knew they had potential to become great, but they weren't there quite yet. If you like Limp Bizkit then you'll like Pillar just so long as you don't have a bias towards christian music. "Above" is for Pillar, what "Three Dollar Bill, Y'all" is for Limp Bizkit. Only I like above better than the bill. I love this band, but I gotta give this cd only 3 stars, because if I gave it a 5 then I would have to give their next cd "Fireproof" a 10 and the stars only go up to 5.
Pillar are amazing.... Dec 16, 2003
This album, their first on Forefront Records is just great, songs like Original Superman are just awesome, these guys are the sort of band you can listen to all the time and not really get sick of hearing them, I've only known about them since last year but since then I managed to get them to the Parachute Festival here in New Zealand where they were exceedingly well recieved, having promised they would come back the following year, to which they are. These guys have a really good sound - good use of guitar, bass and drums and followed up by really well written lyrics, Pillar are a really good solid rock band and a huge difference to the likes of Limp Bizkit where Pillar are actually good. The songs Live For Him, Above, Original Superman, Open Your Eyes and Reaching Out are well and truly my favourite tracks on what really is just an awesome album.
If you've heard these guys before and dont already own this one, get it, you wont be disapoointed, or even of you own any of the later albums, get this and see where they really kicked it off.
Ugh!! Jul 24, 2003
When I first bought this cd, I thought it was gonna be good, but when I heard their first song, I just knew it wasn't going to be that great. I have listened to it multiple times since, in hopes that I might like it better after I heard it a few more times, but that never happened. I guess I just like harder music than Pillar. I personally think Project 86's cd (Drawing Black Lines) is much better than this drivel. Do yourself a favor, don't buy this cd!!!!!
Brilliant Feb 16, 2003
When I first listened to Above, I thought Pillar was just another Christian rock band. But then I started listening to their lyrics and I was dumbstruck. Their raw emotion and energy that they put into their music hooked me. The blend of rap and rock sounds fresh even if you've listened to a dozen other artists with the same style. I would highly recommend this album, as well as their second album Fireproof.
