Im more of a rock music person but sometimes you need easy going contemporary music. good music and sound equalization. I like masculine vocals and he sounds kind of wimpy otherwise I'd give it 4 stars but I respect his fortitude to write christian lyrics unlike many christian bands with crossover lyrics. Ive heard the newer "this generation" title and will buy it.
Heart of Worship Aug 30, 2005
First time I heard SonicFlood, I had to buy their album Cry Holy. They are WONDERFULL. I like Heart of Worship, it brings you back to the altar. I would love to see them in concert. They have a fan for life.
One of the BEST worship albums out there!! Aug 2, 2004
I have to tell you, I've never heard Sonicflood's music before until I heard 'Cry Holy' on the radio. I fell in love with it. Then I went to the store, found their album and read the title's on the back of the cd. I loved all the titles so I figured I'd buy it. Well, after hearing the album all the way through the first thing that came to my mind is that these songs were just the words and feelings I have for God. These songs are love songs that we would love to sing to Him. To be honest, this album helped me a lot when I was going through a ruff time in my life. It was a constant reminder of God's love for us and it helped me lean on Him through it all. My favorite's are "I will exalt the one", "Satisfied", "Shelter", "Love of my life", and "God is great". But I do love ALL these songs. I don't know about anyone else who has listened to this album and worshipped with it but, I really felt God's spirit in these songs. Sometimes it's hard to find the words of love to express to God. These songs hit the mark. I HIGHLY recommend this album. You won't be disappointed :)
Great CD! Highly recommended! Jul 10, 2004
I got this CD for the song "God is Great". I was deciding between this CD and the Hillsong CD (which also contains a version of that song) and I am glad I chose this one!
I do not have any other Sonicflood CDs so I cannot compare, but there are tons of great songs on this CD, "Cry Holy", "Everyday", "Unconditional", "Rushing In", "I Will Exalt The One", "Satisfied" and "God is Great" are my favorites. I like the Chris Tomlin version of Here I Am to Worship better ... but the version on this CD is still pretty good.
Overall I was really happy with this CD, and am now going to have to (eventually) get the other Sonicflood CDs too :)
Sweet communion with God May 31, 2004
I bought Sonicflood's debut album back when it was the only Sonicflood album out, and liked it okay, but it was never one of my favorites. It was quite uneven, I thought, some good songs and some uninspiring songs.
For that reason, I guess, I wasn't inclined to get their subsequent albums. But I did end up getting "Cry Holy," albeit not with great expectations.
Boy was I surprised! What a difference from the first Sonicflood album! Immediately I liked this one much better! Upon looking at the credits, I discovered Jeff Deyo was gone, and in fact I've heard Jeff Deyo's first solo album, and I didn't like it at all, so as far as I'm concerned, it's just as well that Jeff Deyo left Sonicflood because I like better the direction the band has gone without him. By the way, I've now also heard Jeff Deyo's second album, and although it's a little better than his first album, I still don't care for it. There's a lot of energy there but I cannot relate to it worship-wise, not to mention the musical weaknesses of his albums.
From reading the reviews of others here, I've learned that all of the original members of Sonicflood have departed except for one. It seems some reviewers are perturbed that this band uses the name Sonicflood, when it's not the same band, and they forever miss Jeff Deyo. I suppose if you were a big Jeff Deyo fan, then you're better off buying his solo albums than buying this. As for saying this band does not live up to the name Sonicflood, I don't get it, because I like this far better than Sonicflood's debut. (I haven't heard any other albums besides the debut and this one.)
I like every song on this album. The music is beautiful, repeatedly leading me to a time of intimate communion with God. Song after song dwells on the greatness of God as well as his wonderful love.
Something that I find especially pleasing about this album is the guitar work. The guitars on here add such richness to the songs. There are only two songs on here I had heard before--"Here I Am To Worship" and "Famous One." On both of these, the beautiful guitar embellishments make them my favorite versions of these popular songs. The eloquent guitar sounds add to the worship experience, making beautiful music before our glorious God.
In my growing up days, people in church would find that a particular organ solo would enhance their worship experience. I was never much for organ; I liked electric guitar. These days I go to a church where the electric guitars are very strong and upfront, so I'm used to the ways in which the guitar can add to the beauty of worship. So many worship albums I get, the guitar is so much in the background that the album sounds wimpy and lacks character. This album shines above most worship albums because the guitars are not buried in the background but are a central contributor to the worship experience.
While the guitars on this Sonicflood album are not cruncher-killer, they are upfront and full of beauty. I feel as I worship while listening to this album that I am surrounded by opulent sounds of guitar floating up to the majestic God, or at other times in joyous communion with him, surrounded by beautiful sounds as if in a sonic garden.
There have been some complaints in other reviews about the singer's voice, calling it "whining" and displaying "little heart and emotion." I don't feel this way at all. I think the vocals are very fitting to the overall sound of the band. As I follow the words and engage in worship, I feel full of emotion. If the singing were bad or lacked emotion I would not feel that way.
I like every song on this album, but I would like to mention two highlights. The climax of the album is "God Is Great," which soars in elation and praising of God. "Rushing In" and "Love Of My Life" are two songs that are particularly sweet in their expression of communion with God, experiencing his love.
This album is one of my favorites of 2003, and definitely one of my favorite worship albums. I am certain that I will enjoy this for years to come.
