David Crowder*Band
Remedy



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 10 tracks: 44 minutes, 56 seconds
Street Date: September 25, 2007


After David Crowder*Band was named MSN Music's 2006 Artist of the Year, fans have been eagerly anticipating what the band will do next. Earlier this year the band announced that Remedy was coming.

On previous releases, David Crowder*Band's songs alternated between the radio-friendly and the more experimental. But with Remedy, David Crowder*Band has struck the balance between making music that is both innovative and accessible. The sound of Remedy reflects a natural progression of David Crowder*Band's music over the years. Elements of Crowder's previous releases Illuminate, Sunsets & Sushi, and A Collision are all present (well, perhaps not the bluegrass) and fused together to create a sound that is unique in Christian music. Although this is not a stylistic departure from the sounds of previous albums, the songs on Remedy are fresh and original, and not just "more of the same."

"The Glory of It All" and "Can You Feel It" get the album off to a good start and set the tone for the rest of the record. "Everything Glorious" - first heard on Passion's 2006 live worship CD of the same name - is given the studio treatment for the first time. The passionate (no pun intended) dynamics of "Everything Glorious" present in the live recording feel toned down on the studio version, resulting in a CCM radio-friendly but bland version. Other highlights on the album include "You Never Let Go," "Rain Down," and "We Won't Be Quiet."

Although Remedy is the shortest of David Crowder*Band's full-length releases, it is also the most consistent from start to finish. Those looking for a fresh, original, and accessible new worship album should look no further than Remedy.
