Reviews - What do customers think about The Promise?
Plus One more star! Jul 6, 2003
When I first heard that there was going to be not one, but two Christian boy-bands (the other being True-Vibe), I have to confess that I was not crazy about the idea. My fear was that they would be a "boy band" first and a Christian group second.
Fortunately they turned out to be the reverse of my fears.
"The Promise" was one of the best albums of 2000, vaulting Plus One to the tops of not only the Christian charts, but the secular charts as well. In addition to a concert tour that was a huge hit, Plus One also popped up in a few TV shows during 2000 and 2001.
Nearly three years later, many of the songs on this album still receive a lot of radio play on both Christian and secular stations.
Although the group was put together by an outsider (i.e., someone not in the group itself) and all the songs were written by other people, the message in this album is clear: God is not just out there, but He is a big part of your life. This message is made clear by the songs "Written On My Heart,""Soul Tattoo," and "Here In My Heart."
Probably the most popular of the songs on this album, at least in the Christian circles, is "God Is In This Place," a reminder that God is here, there, and everywhere.
The group has recently dropped from five members to three members with the departure of Jeremy Mhire and Jason Perry. The remaining three have decided, at least for now, to stay a trio. We'll have to wait and see what the future holds for them. In the meantime, get acquainted with this group through this album.
one word...AWESOME! Jun 15, 2003
This CD is great! The group has great vocals, spirit, and style. This is DEFINITELY their best album yet!
The best thing that ever happened to christian music!!! Mar 22, 2003
The only word to describe this C.D. is WOW!There isn't a song I don't absolutely love on here!The song Written on my Heart is awesome,God is in this Place and The Promise are sweet songs that you can't skip.(Listen to the song The Promise if you're sad.)My Life is more secular sounding,but the lyrics are like an invitation to Christ.Soul Tattoo is SOOOOO good it's not funny! I Will Rescue You is a pretty song that slows things down a little,When Your Spirit Gets Too Weak talks about helping each other out when we're weak.Last Flight Out is a soft,beautiful love song,one of the best songs on the CD.Run To You is really good song (The mechanical voice is too cool!)Be,I didn't listen to that much but it really grew on me.Here in my Heart is another pretty love song that you have to listen to.And what album is complete without a best friend song?My Friend is a perfect ending to an awesome CD.Nate,Jason,Gabe,Jeremy,and Nathan are very talented singers!If you don't have this CD. yet, go get it.Now.You won't regret it.
it's a good cd... Dec 5, 2002
i'm not a big plus one fan, but i have to say this cd was a lot better than their other ones. this seems more Christ-oriented than their earlier cds. this is definitely an improvement, and, although many people think the love songs are inappropriate for the cd, i think that they're relevant to a non-Christian's life, which makes the cd appealing. their love songs are 'clean' & they represent love in a way that God intended love between two people to be. i appreciate how honest they are in their lyrics -- 'for you i would fly, at least i would try' last flight out -- instead of going on about all that hype about sex & drugs. the title song, the promise, also has beautiful lyrics -- 'all you can see is dark and lonely days ahead, but remember Jesus said: He knows every star in the sky...in His arms you're never alone.' if you're looking for a good cd, you've found it. i would also recommend 'ZOEgirl' and 'joy williams' if you like pop. :) God bless y'all!
