We Recommend - Third Day, 'Revelation'

This week, since I've been going back in time a lot lately to some 90's or early 00 releases, I thought it might be appropriate to look back on 2008 a bit. First off, congratulations are in order to Third Day who took home an American Music Award last night (for "Favorite Contemporary Inspirational")! And with the release of their latest studio album, Revelation, this past July, we want to spotlight it as one of the highlights of the 2008.

After Third Day went edgier for their album Wire, they took a more the pop/contemporary route for the less favorable (but still had some highlights), Wherever You Are. Their latest, Revelation, returns the band to more of a rock format and they haven't sounded quite this good in some time! Kind of imagine if their 1999 release Time was a little edgier throughout, with mainstream quality production as well, and you have an idea of where Revelation lies in the Third Day anthology. It's also very refreshing to have the honest in a track like the title song. The chorus especially strikes a chord with me:

Give me a revelation
Show me what to do
‘Cause I’ve been trying to find my way
I haven’t got a clue
Tell me should I stay here
Or do I need to move
Give me a revelation
I’ve got nothing without you

So... Anyone else pick this one up yet? Let us know if you recommend it!
