Usually bands with a sound like Transistor Radio aim towards making an impact in the mainstream market, but not these guys. A Legacy Between, the first release from Up At Nite Records (otherwise known as the new rock imprint of Syntax Records) and Transistor Radio, will not disappoint pop rock fans who don't mind a hint of punk thrown into the mix. What's even more remarkable than the music, is the way the line-up came to be. Guy, Jamesdon, Sam, Andrew and Jordan actually came together through prayer... and MySpace! If that's not God willing, what is?
Christian bands used to keep lyrics dealing with deep, serious issues to themselves because of the way CCM marketed their music and audiences seemed to prefer more cookie-cutter messages. Times have truly changed from the era of DC Talk and "Luv is a Verb." Christian bands these days are unafraid to water down lyrics or speak out about everyday issues that everyone deals with because Jesus doesn't just help those who have 'perfect' lives, He helps anyone who is willing to seek him. That's what makes this record so appealing.
It would be a task to decipher a specific genre that this album fits into, seeing as each member has his taste of music and brings their own influence to the band's sound, but that just makes the album robust and unforgettable in sound that truly is A Legacy Between.- Review date: 9/22/07, written by Jessica Gregorius
