For over ten years now, Seventh Day Slumber has been releasing some solid rock tunes with a straightforward message: Christ is the only way. So after last year's Spanish release Rescatame, the band has taken yet another step out of the box with their first full-length worship album, Take Everything. This is a release filled with covers of today's favorite contemporary songs mixed with some classic hymns.
Their rendition of Chris Tomlin's "How Great Is Our God" opens the record and displays a nice rock/orchestra feel reminiscent of Red, while "I Can Only Imagine" showcases background sounds similar to something that I recall hearing from Led Zepplin. "Lead Me To Te Cross" beautifully mixes acoustic and electric strings and "Oceans From The Rain" is just a great listen. However, that's about it when it comes to what really stands out on Take Everything. It's not that there's anything bad on the project, it's just that there's nothing too unique available either.
All in all, Seventh Day Slumber did just what they set out to accomplish. That being that they took a chance to make an album a little out of their comfort zone and did it well. Some of the music comes off with a harder edge while they keep some tracks softer. The songs that were chosen are mostly beautiful, and it all comes together rather nicely. Those who like a little more rock in their worship will enjoy Take Everything, while any fan of Seventh Day Slumber will gladly want to add this to their collection. If, however, you don't fit into either of those categories, there's probably not much on this album for you.- Review date: 2/16/09; PReview date: 2/7/09, written by Kevin Hoskins
