We Recommend - Staple, 'Of Truth and Reconciliation'

It was just recently announced here on JfH that Staple is getting back together.  This was exciting news to me.  And due to that news, I thought it appropriate to recommend their final album before the break up, Of Truth and Reconciliation.  Lots of straight up rock bands are boring nowadays.  Just bland and formulaic.  Staple uses rock music and mixes in bits and pieces of hard rock and even a dash of hardcore here and there and makes it beautiful.  They know how to make good, heavy songs like "Circles We Run" and "Final Night," while also being able to be intricate and insightful, as in "Black, Blue and Gold" and "The Best of Times."  And they always had something to say.  "Gavels From Gun Barrels" speaks of our need for mercy, and "Do or Die" proclaims non-conformity to the world and sticking to faith in Jesus.  Of Truth and Reconciliation is a great album for someone looking for good rock music without having to suffer the blah offerings of bands like Red and Kutless. ~ Scott
