Reviews - What do customers think about The Faithful?
The Full Blossom of Steve Green Dec 22, 2005
The kid who came to everyone's attention with "He Holds The Keys" and did his best work on "The Mission" follows up his most lackluster performance with.....a mid-level output. But it is also clear from this recording that Green not only has grown up and is concerned that if it were his last recording what would he be proud of, the producer has gone back 'to the well' by opening the CD with the upbeat 'Sing Praise To God,' which gets you into the music immediately.
"True Christianity," while biblical in its message seems to undermine the message a bit with its toe-tapping upbeat rhythm. "The River" is one of five very deep and reflective songs that make this a mature work. It even ends with the trademark high note. "The Faithful" will make you contemplate the price true Christian martyrs pay for their faith.
"Under the altar their voices are crying, 'How long Lord 'til you come judge the earth?' But he'll wrap and redeem them in robes of pure white; for the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church."
"Safely Home" sounds like it was written in a funeral parlor although it is liberating for the Christian. "The Plan" is another "True Christianity" style rip-off that has a good message and beat and could probably function as a praise chorus.
"Roses" is a tragic tale of the abortion holocaust. There is no need to say much about it as its subject is rather obvious. But "I Repent" ranks as one of Green's most reverent as well as reflective songs. Though somber and walking in tone - as repentance should be - its message roars like thunder in the heart of the forgiven sinner.
Good but not great. Mature. Not for you if you want shallow music.
Songs of praise and devotion Sep 25, 2005
The album opens with the magnificent To God All Praise And Glory, a rousing song with full orchestra and choir. The poignant Unto Me is next, a song that spells out in a practical way what the Christian life is all about. The slow rock ballad The River is followed by the stirring title track with its beautiful imagery of the martyrs under the throne.
Safely Home is a somewhat mournful but ultimately comforting ballad about those who have passed away, whilst The Plan is a catchy and uptempo number about daily living. The Great Revival is an uplifting song with great percussion and soulful gospel-style backing voices.
I Repent and Roses are both tender ballads, the first with only keyboards and percussion whilst the second is an achingly moving song about abortion and what it really means. The album concludes with My Soul Found Rest, another devotional ballad with full orchestral backing.
The Faithful is a comforting and inspiring album of memorable songs. The sound is a very successful integration of rock, orchestral and gospel styles. My favourites include the anthemic All Praise And Glory, the gripping Unto Me, the sad but comforting Safely Home and the song of repentance Roses.
The CD booklet contains all the lyrics, sometimes introduced by scriptural passages and quotes on issues of concern to Christians today, like the persecution of believers and the killing of the unborn.
Still Faithful Apr 22, 2001
Having all of Steve Green's previous albums, I'm still a faithful Steve fan. He never fails to deliver superb performances. Though this may not be one of his great albums, I surely understand. Because this is an album with a deep mission. You will notice it from the songs "The Faithful", "The Great Revival" and "Unto Me".
At least this is an album made with a purpose. So, to those who sees it a bit serious, well it may be that way. Each songs delivers different issues relevant in our times. But hey, you can still enjoy it with some excerpts of praise-like and upbeat songs like "The Plan", "Unto Me" and "The Great Revival".
Among his 10 songs, the following 7 songs are my favourites (in order):
1st "The River" - one of the most beautiful songs I ever heard. A song of challenge to enter into the river and answer His call. This should have been the carrier song of the album.
2nd "Unto Me" - are we what we called a true Christian? An eye-opener message lovely performed in a pop, lively beat - wonderfully written by Twila Paris.
3rd "The Great Revival" - tune is a little different but joyful and praise-like. This is an African-inspired song composed by Kolade - a Nigerian missionary.
4th "Safely Home" - seems like a sad song for funerals but if you listen deeper, you'll find out it's a song of hope and promise. A promise that someday, all Christians are safely home with the Lord. Amen for that!
5th "My Soul Found Rest" - another assuring song for a weary and tired soul. Splendidly delivered by Steve with the London Session Orchestra. The song soothes my soul!
6th "The Plan" - an easy song that tell us to let the Lord lead our way and just follow and trust His direction. Cool song!
7th "To God All Praise and Glory" - here, Steve brings back the traditional hymn-like songs he used to sing. A great opening song!
I purchased this album in Singapore, when I was send there to work alone by my company. From a hard day's work with computers, playing the songs at night soothes and relaxes me. My soul found rest!
To Steve Green, continue serving the Lord through music. You have lots of fan here in the Philippines. You are also a number one fan of my brother!
* Check on the criteria on how I decide to select the stars for a certain album at my profile. I hope my review helps you a lot. Thanks.
One of Steve's best Apr 28, 2000
Being a big Steve Green fan, I was a little disappointed with his last release, "The Letter." Though the songs were moving, all the music sounded the same. I was so happy to get a listen to this CD. This reminds me of the early Steve Green. He opens the album with a terrific song of praise, "To God all Praise and Glory." The Twila Paris penned, "Unto Me" is a challenging song about putting your faith into action. He doesn't disappoint with the ballads on this one. "The River" and "I Repent" call the listener to give yourself away to the Lord. "Safely Home" is a tear jerker that reminds us of lost loved ones and brings peace with the knowledge that they are with the Father.
Steve hit the bull's eye. The songs are contemporary and challenging. It is easy to lose yourself in the message of this CD.
This is music the way it should be Dec 29, 1999
Steve Green is my absolute FAVORITE Christian artist, and this album embodies everything that he stands for. These songs are very powerful. They remind us about all of the things that we need to be aware about today in our world--things like persecution, abortion, sin, etc... These songs have a kind of modern feel that expresses not only beauty, but also urgency--an urgency to stand up for the faith. It is very encouraging to know that there is someone like Steve Green who is not sacrificing his integrity. These songs powerfully display his absolutely fantastic singing ability and the issues that we should all be praying for and considering.
