Take 6
Feels Good



Album length: 12 tracks
Street Date: March 21, 2006


Feels Good, album number twelve for the a cappella sextet that formed on the campus of Huntsville's Oakwood College back around my birth, heralds their welcomed return into the Christian music spotlight after nearly a four year break. Although I was not immediately taken by Take 6's latest, after a few months, it has really started to grow on me.

"Come On," the energetic first track, is the perfect show starter for the many years of touring that I'm sure will follow this release. It also works well to help erase the mediocrity that has reverberated throughout their last couple of albums. On the chorus, they remind the audience, "Come on everybody, we're just getting started, rocking the party," and amongst all the souring harmonies and beatboxing, I'm inclined to believe them! If one was looking for the polar opposite of the aforementioned track, that would be the powerful yet reverent "Lamb of God," a song that puts nothing in the way of the completely Jesus-centric message. You can feel in every word sung the love these six guys feel for their Savior.

If the album ended there, things would've boded better for the overall project. But, with songs like "You Can Make It - Go On," the group starts to date themselves. They cannot hit the same harmonies anymore, and it doesn't sound good when they try.

I still admire Take 6, however, because even after their extensive history, they are still making music. That is more then can be said about 90% of music groups out there (Think recent breakups of Audio A, Watermark, Sixpence, the maybe/maybe not DcTalk). No one can dispute that there is something about Take 6 that really works, and although you will find nothing groundbreaking on Feels Good, you will notice a renewed passion in their music that has been absent for quite some time.
