Letter 7 - Follow the Light Empty
PostSubject: Letter 7 - Follow the Light   Letter 7 - Follow the Light I_icon_minitimeSat Nov 08, 2008 2:58 pm

Ok, yes I know I'm a little late in discussing this album, but hey I'm slow....

I still remember being totally stoked by Letter 7's first album "Salt of the Earth". And was very happy to find out they were releasing a follow-up album this year. Like most I was a little surprised to see the change in musical direction. It wasn't a drastic change, but I thought they had a great sound and musical direction on the first album and was a bit shocked to see they had messed with it.

After listening to the album several times, It seems that much of that change was due to a maturing in the song writing department. After repeated listens I have to say that "Follow the Light" blows away their first release (I didn't think that was possible, but there you have it). This is an exceptionaly good record. There isn't one bad song on the disc, and I find myself singing the songs in my head (and out loud) for hours after hearing the album.

This album will probably top my list of favorites for 2008

Until the Stricken and Disciple discs came out, Letter 7 was holding on to the top slot on my favorites list. I like those two just a tad bit more, but I don't think I can really downgrade Letter 7 past number 3 for the year. It's just too good.

I don't have the Stricken disc yet, but I would still expect the new Letter 7 to still beat them out for my list. And well....you know how I feel about Disciple.
Tongue

If there were 5 or 6 more Christian metal acts making music in the vein of the new Letter 7 disc (with the same quality) I would be happier than a pig in slop. Love that hard rockin music with tons of melody in the vocals.

I just have not made myself sit down and write a review. Sorry, bro.

Did you get that lyric file to open?

"Salt Of the Earth" was an album I like from the first listening.
"Follow The Light" takes a bit more listenings.

Sometimes when I listen to new music my mind is too full to really listen.
That was the case when I first listened to "Follow The Light"
But sometimes it really helps me to empty my mind to listen to music.

It's good, but not nearly as good as Salt of the Earth.

I've been listening to it daily, and it's still not grabbing me the way the first one did.

Surprised to hear that, seems like the hooks in this album are big enough to catch a whale. I find myself singing them all day long.

Never heard them before last week. Picked this album up at an indoor flea market. Kept it in my CD player for a week and heard the whole album about 6 times during that week. Loved several songs, especially Nail in the Cross, Send me an Angel, Mystery, and Prayer Warriors

It was cool to read through this old thread.  I never seem to find anything as cool as Letter 7 at the flea markets I manage to make it to.

Me neither but in the NW, aren't many who listen to that kind of Christian music. 
Man, Tall Tyrion.

Yeah I'll take the blame for that one.  I angered TT over some issue several years back (I think it was about the police).  He closed his account and never came back, bummer because I really liked him.

I think TT went through a spiritual crisis, he left all the boards.
