Third Day
Southern Tracks EP



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 4 tracks: 17 minutes, 24 seconds
Street Date: August 24th, 1999


First, let me explain that Southern Tracks is not an official Third Day album. This is a (I hate to use the word for a record as good as this, but...) b-sides disc. You will not find this rare release in stores anymore.

Southern Tracks features four songs. The songs are pretty good, the best of which is probably "Underwater," a powerful song about baptism. "It's About Time" is another pretty good song about giving Jesus your life. It contains lyrics like: "It's about time that I tried to live my life for more than myself. It's about time I tried to live my life for Jesus and walk in his strength." The other cool thing about this song is that just when you think it's over, it keeps going. But "Long Time Coming" and the confusing "She Sings in Riddles" are more classic Third Day songs - not that that's a bad thing. These songs just aren't anything compared to those found on their regular albums.

But that's the thing: this should not be compared to another Third Day album. With only four songs, clocking in under twenty minutes, it serves as a treat for Third Day junkies like me. My musical tastes are changing as I get older, but Third Day will always be a personal favorite. And that is what makes this project so good.

JFH Staff's Additional 2 Cents


Southern Tracks was a four-song collection of rock tracks that never made it on Time and it's a solid set at that. True "Gomers" will want to hunt down this project somewhere if they don't have it... - 1/6/05, John DiBiase
