Reviews - What do customers think about Audio CD-Wonder Of The World?
God-centered and Gospel-focused Jul 7, 2009
Wonder of the World is an excellent follow-up album that brings a strong focus to the person and work of Jesus Christ, and how his followers should respond to him, namely, to "lose it all."
Great songwriting by Wes and Kevin!
Great percussion riffs by Jamie!
I STRONGLY recommend this album, and also if you have opportunity to catch these guys in concert don't miss them.
Great Album! Jun 20, 2009
First heard "Never Far Away" on the Hugh Hewitt Show and bought the album. Great song and great album!
Rush of Fools May 5, 2009
I became a fan of the Contemporary Christian band Rush of Fools when their first album came out. I heard a song on our local Adult contemporary station and I simply HAD to find out who did the song. Wouldn't you know it was by Rush of Fools. Their Sophomore release tops, by far, the initial album. This CD will find its way to your favorites bin. Buy it! Satisfaction guaranteed! I promise.
Great sound, but I've heard deeper lyrics. Mar 26, 2009
I loved their first album, but this one just didn't meet the same standard. They sound great on this album, but the lyrics just didn't cut it for me. They are generic to me. I love them still, but I think that they have got to work on deepening the message. The next album has promise.
Rush of Fools [Wonder Of The World] Feb 9, 2009
Rush of Fools has made quite an impression with 2 albums in less than 2 years, including an impressive self-titled debut album that made several top 10 lists in 2007 with the stand-out songs "Undo", "We All" and "When Our Hearts Sing". The band was nominated for best new artist of 2007 and "Undo" was nominated for song of the year. That is a pretty hard act to follow and if you liked "Rush of Fools" as much as I liked it, you probably had pretty high expectations for their newest album "Wonder of The World", released September 16, 2008.
For awhile, I only had the title track and had to remind myself I was listening to Rush of Fools when the song came on in a playlist as the sound and style of the song is different from the first album. Now, the second single "Lose It All" is doing very well and although also has a different sound, reminds me why I like this band so much. I downloaded the entire album "Wonder of The World" about 1 month ago and I highly recommend it. The opening song "There Is Nothing" sets the tone nicely for the album with the biblical and uplifting lyrics "There is no wilderness, no desert place, no sickness, There is no sinking ship, no history, no weakness, That You can't save me from". The entire album is full of very worshipful and uplifting lyrics such as the opening line of "Wonder of The World": "Father, How can it be that You are Father to me, Savior, How can it be that You are, Savior for me, Everything I need".
Every song has a similar sentiment of praise and worship to our Savior set to catchy melodies and sung with emotion by Wes Willis who co-wrote every song with fellow band member Kevin Huguley and producer and songwriter Jason Ingram. One song I keep coming back to is "Lose It All", which is one of the highlights of the album and very catchy, upbeat and worshipful. The second half of the album is pretty mellow and contemplative and I enjoy listening to the entire album in order and sharing in the worship experience with the band. I'm looking forward to seeing them in concert the next time they come to my area.
If you like Building 429, Ruth, Sanctus Real and Above The Golden State, then you should really enjoy this solid worship album. I score it 88% out of 100%, solid B+.
