We Recommend - All Star United, 'All Star United'

This is one of the finest recordings known from the 90s. Ian Eskelin, the vocalist and also a solo artist, has contributed so much to the alternative genre in the last 15 years, and this album a perfect example of an experience that’s unforgettable. There are so many songs that shine on this album such as: “Angels”, “La La Land”, “Smash Hit”, and “Tenderness”.  - Wayne Myatt

I actually think it's funny Wayne picked this album for this week. Listening to ASU's new album The Good Album a lot lately (which comes out in the UK this week and in the US sometime this year), it's put me in a bit of an All Star United mood, so I've been spinning their 1997 debut quite a bit. I love this album. From the band's ability to be tongue-in-cheek and sarcastic about issues in the church and packaging it in such a catchy pop song, to the fact he can also shoot straight to the heart in the slower songs like "Drive," "Torn," and "Tenderness." Still a fantastic record 12 years later! Check out the lyrics to the opening track, "La La Land." They make for a great read as well. - John DiBiase
