- A Youth Ministry Must
This is my favorite CD. It speaks to me so deeply and the music is awesome. This is another youth minister who knows my struggles.
Get "Live From Atlanta" by Casting Crowns. It has a DVD with comments by Mark Hall. I've used this as staff devotions and in the youth ministry. It gives me a high everytime I watch it and youth just love the music and message....more info
- Simply the best!
I have been a Christian for over twenty years and have purchased more Christian CDs then I could possibly count and I must say that this ranks up there as one of my favorites, if not my ultimate favorite. I received this CD as a birthday gift and I was unfamilar with the group so I almost returned. I am so thankful that I didn't. God has used the songs on this CD to minister to me in a truely remarkable way, like I have never experienced before. "Who Am I" brings me to tears everytime I hear it. It speaks of God's awesome love for us. My other favorite that has become my theme song is "Voice of Truth". Truly a remakable band and incredible songs. I recently purchase their second CD Lifesong and I love that one too! You won't be disappointed!...more info
- Casting Crowns CD
this is a beautiful CD. I have listened to it over and over and over, can't get enough. Not like some CD's that you only like one song on, this one is great from start to finish....more info
- AWESOME STUFF HERE!
Can't say enough about this album. Casting Crowns debut album hits right where I and many others need it. Songs about issues deep in your head and heart, set to music that is listenable, with lyrics that can be understood, but not sickly sweet and drippy. If you have even the slightest desire to hear music that actually means something, get this album....more info
- If you appreciate the depth of Twila Paris' lyrics
and enjoy rock tunes, this album is for you. ...more info
- Casting Crowns: A Melody of Faith
Lately I have purchased many contemporary Christian bands and having a belief in God and his son and yet not adhering to a religion I have felt my inner faith in God and his workings strengthen through listening to these bands. 'Casting Crowns' is no different and has added to my increase in faith through worshipful music that is entertaining and brilliant. This group is made up of a number of individuals from different churches but an underlining faith in God and their faith in his workings. The songs on this album are breathtaking and glorious and many listeners will become fans of this group. The vocals are sung with a beautiful temperment and a emotional level that shows the faith in the lyrics and words sung. All 10 songs on this album are simply brilliant and radiant with faith in God and his powers. 'If We Are The Body' and 'Who Am I' are masterpieces of this album and their messages to the listeners is a example that Christian faith is alive and strong. This is soft rock with a slight twist of pop mixed in. The CD is a melody of faith, a faith in God and in each other has human beings. ...more info
- 1st and Best in Contemp Christian!
Casting Crowns self title debut album is one of the primary reasons (if not THE primary) why they are one of the biggest names in Contemporary Christian Music. Tracks 2-4 are now worship favorites played on Christian radio and in todays churches....more info
- Casting Crowns
This Album is great. It provides that edge of inspiration and self reflection that creates an opportunity to improve your Christian walk. What a great job using contemporary style with old fashioned faith....more info
- What a debut
this is absolutely worth buying. every song is good. God really bless these guys and gal with true talant. You can feel the Presence of the Lord in every song. The lyrics are well written and the music is super. personal favorites are Who am I, voice of truth and praise you with the dance....more info
This is a very, very mediocre musical effort for a Christian band. The instrumentation is the basic strummy chord-changes every four counts, the lyrics are obvious and forced, and the vocals... well, the lead singer's voice sounds like a seal barking. The voice really grates on the nerves with its strained, faux-emotional quality. Certainly there are people who really like this, and you might be one of those people. I am not. In my opinion, you'd be better off getting Thrive by the Newsboys!...more info
- Good debut with good potential
Casting Crowns has a MercyMe-like sound that at times sounds wonderful and other times, it sounds a bit generic. So while they are not as good and polished as MercyMe, it's exciting to see what Casting Crowns will do next. They either have tracks that are worth repeating and others you just want to skip. Highlights on this album include: What If His People Prayed, If We Are The Body, Voice Of Truth, and Who Am I? Unfortunately those are the first four songs and after that, the songs go either way. I kind of like Praise You With the Dance, but I wouldn't say it's a great song. I think the album "Lifesong" was kind of like that, too. Half great songs, half mediocre. But with potential like this, Casting Crowns will only get better and oneday release the perfect album. And there is no doubt about it. They will be around for a long, long time. I wish they let the woman sing a little more, too....more info
- Great Lyrics
but it was too heavy overall. Could have gone for a lighter sound -- less rock influences......more info
- LOVE IT!
I just love this cd! i am new to Christian music and just started listening to it on the radio. i wanted to get some of my own and i know almost every song on this cd! this is a great CD and very inspirational! i find myself singing these songs while i am running down the road! very upbeat and wonderful! this was a great purchase!...more info
- Casting Crowns CD is GREAT!!
I LOVE this CD!! My kids love it also. It is very uplifting and great to listen to anytime. Thanks!...more info
Love the CD! There isn't one song I don't like. I can listen to it over and over again with ever getting tired of it :) ...more info
- Love this cd
I first became aware of this group when I heard "Who Am I" on Wow Hits 2005 and I wanted to hear more. This has become my favorite cd...there isn't a bad song on it....more info
I have never heard worse lyrics in my life. How many people have ever sat down and asked "Oprah what to do"? The whole song, "What if His People Prayed" begs the question, if you were worried about whether or not people are praying why are you singing a song about it? If people are listening to your song, then they are not praying.
My guess is the money is better this way....more info
- From a twelve-year born again Christian
I was saved about 12 years ago and no album has touched my life and influenced my life as much as this album. I listen to a lot of Cristian as well as country, rock and a little bit of other stuff, but this one is the best I've heard period. ...more info
- Christ's Call Can Be Heard with Joy!
Always a pleasure to listen to this one. The lyrics speak true and urge us all to live our faith and really reach out to others in the name of Christ. Christ calls us to be His body--let's obey and act!
- Wide Appeal & Worth Having
Casting Crowns got it right. I love this CD and so does my youth group. My favorite song on there is "If We are the Body" because it speaks the truth about the church. This song hits home and asks questions along the lines of - "Why does the church judge people seeking help rather than reach out to them?"
Over all, the music and lyrics are solid. This is worth having in one's music library....more info
- Powerful CD
This CD contains the amazing "Who Am I?" which can bring tears to your eyes. Other tracks also are designed to really make you think about your relationship with Christ. This band pulls no punches...they sing from their heart. Looking forward to the new CD just released yesterday !...more info
- Casting Crowns best CD, IMHO
Awesome sound, awesome lyrics. And, if I'm correct it's their debut CD. Never gets old....more info
- Simply the best
The best Christian CD of 2003 and 2004. I love 3rd day, but Wire was not even in the same class of quality. From top to bottom, every song is great....more info
Incredible. Really makes you think of the work that the lord Jesus Christ did for us. Get it. Peace be with you....more info
- Awesome lyrics!
I love the lyrics! The music is good as well. This CD will move you. My favorite song is "If We Are the Body". Listen to this CD! You will most likely enjoy it....more info
