We Recommend - PFR, 'Them'

I was sitting here trying to think of a project to recommend for this week, and when I opened iTunes, "Say" by PFR came on. Like a warm blanket or a steamy cup of hot cocoa on a frigid evening, the melodic vocals of Joel Hanson and the encouraging lyrics of "Let me hear you say 'It's ok.' Let me hear you say 'It's alright.' I could really use some words that comfort so I won't be alone tonight." set to a lovely piano pop sound enveloped me. After debuting the recent blog that highlighted Audio Adrenaline's Hit Parade record, someone wisely commented that PFR's Late Great PFR collection was another excellent hits record done right. PFR was at the top of their game when they told the CCM world that it was time to hang it up. Them was their swan song -- and a gem at that. From the aforementioned "Say" to the rocking opener "Pour Me Out" (which still sounds awesome today) to the anthemic ballad "Fight" to the tearful closer "Garden," Them was a solid pop rock effort and probably the band's most timeless of their releases. If you don't care about the year a record was released in but could use a little pop rock peace, check out PFR's Them. - John DiBiase
