I honestly think that musically and lyrically "Time To Go" is the best. I love the piano work in there.

i just keep finding stuff to listen to that's so much better. i'm not really in the mood for stuff that needs to grow on me.

since age of reptiles, showbread hasn't really done anything that's impressed me. i'm a bad fan... but i still love them.

i could have just said... their music has not been good.

i believe showbread's doing what God wants them to do. that doesn't mean i have to like their music.

gonna throw out my opinion really quick. I'm not a huge fan of the record.

I like it, but it is my least favorite showbread record by far. It has some really cool songs on it, but it also has some of the worst songs they've ever written. I've never been in pain from listening to a song before I heard Time to Go. I never thought it would be a Showbread song that would do that to me.

Besides Drew's kick hind quarters drumming, the rest of everything seems really half worked. The melodies are recycled from other showbread songs, and Josh's vocals seem really lacking.

BUT, that does not mean I hate it. It has some great lyrics, and there were some spots that were absolutely awesome. I think the bass tone is crazy awesome on the songs, and everything sounds relatively tight.

The thing that gets me is that I know the talent that is there in Showbread, and I feel like some of the performances captured were not as good as they could have been.

from you, nothing else. it's just funny because "reviewing" a showbread record is like having a renowned food critic judge fast food...it just wasn't made to be reviewed.

i've actually asked the mods on sputnik to delete my showbread reviews because of this. and they won't.

No music is "too good" to be reviewed. I understand that Showbread is not writing music for critics, I know they're not aiming to impress. It may sound like a review, but it's my opinion. I'll always support what they do, no matter what they release because I believe in their message.

i'm not saying their music is too good to be reviewed; i'm saying that reviewing it is funny because it's not made to be judged by the standards that reviews have.

but it's really irrelevant at this point because i know you weren't reviewing it...it just sounded like it.

I think they make it to be good, but the focus is on the message...why make music if it's intentionally bad? Josh could just write poems and books and stop wasting his time with the music aspect...he could get so much more done that way

yeah, i've seen them say things along the lines that if they didn't think their music was good, they wouldn't make it.

I'm fairly certain I've posted in here before, but I'm sharing some info anyway: The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things is definitely my favorite song. Especially the ending. "In all the tangles of who I am, the truth is that You love me." It always helps bring me back when I'm feeling like I'm not even worthy of eating dirt for the rest of my life, let alone the love of God.
