Overview

It's always a treat to watch a young rock 'n' roll outfit like Third Day mature into a major musical force. This Georgia-based fivesome has improved with each release, and many fans thought 2000's sublime Offerings: A Worship Album represented the band at its apex. But the follow-up, Come Together, sends Third Day to dizzying new heights. Lead singer Mac Powell's vocals have never been more passionate, nor his bandmates' playing more powerful. Many of these 12 tracks -- all written by the band -- strike the same worshipful tone as Offerings, but there's anger, remorse, and playfulness in the mix, too. The opening track, "Come Together," with its plea for unity within the church, sets the tone here; songs like the affirming "I Got You" and defiant "Get On" focus on areas of common ground among the faithful. As Third Day continues to gel artistically, it will only be a matter of time before mainstream audiences discover their unabashed rock sound.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Little did the members of Dove Award winning Southern Rock band Third Day know how timely the title of their November 2001 album Come Together would be. A name chosen a year and a half prior to the release date, the five Georgia residents had no idea of the importance the United States would soon be placing on unity, the very theme that underlies the band’s fourth studio project Come Together. Recorded over an 18-month span of time, in a makeshift studio transformed from a once loft-style office, Come Together features the band’s trademark Southern Rock sound supported by front man Mac Powell’s unmistakable vocals. When compared to the band’s previous projects, Come Together most resembles the group’s self-titled debut album. However, with this release the band, composed of members Powell, Mark Lee, Tai Anderson, Brad Avery and David Carr, have created an innovative and edgy blend of the Southern Rock, Pop and CCM styles, resulting in a majority of tracks unlike any of their prior work. While a couple tracks do bring to mind pieces from Conspiracy Theory No. 5, such as “I Don’t Know”, over all, Come Together is a well-loved sound set to a finer detailed musical approach. Songs include “40 Days”, “Still Listening” and “Nothing Compares”. ~ Ashleigh Kittle, All Music Guide

This album is both a great worship album as well as to just listen to for enjoyment. Third Day just keeps evolving as a musical force with each album and I find myself singing songs off of Come Together from the time I wake up till I go to bed at night. I love this album so much.There are no filler songs here, all of the material on this album is great to listen to. The lead singer's voice is so unique and engaging. The lyrics are so meaningful and the music is first rate. This is top rate Christian Rock.And if you are looking for Christian music that is also just great music, this would be an excellent album to check out. I cant think of anything negative to say here except that the album has to end and I wish there was more.

I had no idea that Christian music was this awesome... until I met Trevor. He introduced me to Third Day and I was blown away. The lyrics are so deep and the way each song sounds completely different from any other song is an outstanding acheivement by this band. I have been a punk/rock fan for years... but never have I seen something so amazing that it has made me change overnight like this. KEEP IT UP THIRD DAY!!!

I had no idea that Christian music could sound...you know...good. At least not until a friend of mine dragged me off to a Third Day concert. I was amazed. Not only are they a just plain good rock band, but they really let the glory of God shine in their music. It's powerful, emotional stuff, and I recommend this album highly, even to mainstream rock listeners.

Like Smitty's i2eye, Newsboys's Take Me to Your Leader, and Steven Curtis's Great Adventure, this is the crowning achievement in Third Day's career. This one will be tough to beat. Fantastic musically and spiritually.

I really like this CD, i have been listening to it since the summer of 2002 and i haven't got bored of it yet and show no sign of it. This CD is a must get for anyone who likes Rock, Christian Music, or both. There are many great different types of songs in this CD.

One day I was feeling really unsure about some stuff, and listening to this album really helped me...some say it's not Third Day's best, but I really like it. It's what I call "comfortable music," which I think is music that puts me in a comfortable mood to be able to think through problems rationally.
