All Music Guide - Steven Douglas Losey
There is something tremendously appetizing about guitar-fused rock & roll. Sanctus Real's sophomore offering, titled Fight the Tide, is a disc that finds the band maturing lyrically and musically while vocalist Matt Hammitt delivers a sterling performance. The disc's opener' "Everything About You'" is a bass-driven tune that features effect-laden guitars swirling around the melody. Well-placed hallelujahs produce a spiritual pleaser. "Things Like You" and "Change Me" both find the band playing radio-friendly cuts that move along like the Gin Blossoms with acoustic guitars giving way to a moving chorus. Throughout the opus there are more great rock moments than ...

Throughout the opus there are more great rock moments than a geologist convention. Check out the chorus on"The Show" or the emotional energy on "Say Goodbye." Fight the Tide is a disc that is testimony to a band with overflowing talents. Cut after cut proves it.

    A MUST HAVE CD!!!

    Sanctus Real combine great music with great lyrics for a CD that is amazing from beginning to end. While the music will have you singing along at the top of your lungs, the lyrics will make you think and challenge you to make a difference. This is a CD that everyone should hear. I've had it since it came out and it has rarely been out of my CD player. It's that good!!!

    It'll rock your world

    I just discovered this CD about a month ago, and it has rocked my world ever since. It's constantly playing on my ipod...which I take everywhere. Totally uplifting. The songs have a great beat to workout to or dance to, and it's a worship service the whole time. The lyrics are really powerful. This represents everything there is to love about inspirational rock music.

    Another amazing album from Sanctus Real!

    'Fight the Tide' is an awesome CD! This album is filled with a mix of real cool rock songs, as well as some really neat acoustic songs! The lyrics are exceptional! It is evident that the guys from Sanctus Real put a lot of time, effort, and prayer into making this album, as they have with their past albums. 'Fight The Tide' is very inspiring, encouraging and uplifting! This is definitely a CD worth getting!

    Worth it all!

    Sanctus Real is truly a gifted band. Not only do they have great music, but their message about God is intwined into their words in the lyrics. Even when you just need to chill, their music is always there, wheither it's in you CD player, Mp3, IPod, or even your head, they're always there to chear you up. Sanctus Real is a wonderful band, for people of all ages, wheither your "in" or out, your always perfect with these guys. Their music is a mix of Christain Pop/Rock, and yet more. Lol. Very uplifting music, I highly suggest them.

    One Absolutely Amazing Album

    I love this album. I've loved this album since the day I got it nearly a year ago. Their first major-label release Say it Loud is great in it's own right, but Fight the Tide shows more maturity in all areas of writing and production. This album, and this band are completely amazing. This album is definitely worth adding to your collection.

    My Favorite CD

    I LOVE SANCTUS REAL!!! I saw them in concert and as soon as it was over I bought this cd. It is an all-around GREAT cd. There really is nothing to complain about. All the songs are AWESOME!!! I love their style. There are great fast songs and ballads. I love all the songs but I especially love "Everything About You", "Alone", "Things Like You", "Closer", "Change Me", "Message", and "Deeds". All the songs rock! This truly is a must-own cd. Go buy it!! And if you ever get the chance, make sure you see these guys in concert, it is a spiritually moving experiance.

    Powerful

    As a member of the next generation, the music predominantly heard on the radios are very repititive in the style and what the artist chooses to sing about. If you are looking for superior music and a refreshing new perspective of life, look no further than Sanctus Real. Fight the Tide covers a wide range of genres, from head bobbing rock to soothing and flowing music. Sanctus Real sings about real life, from disagreements we have with each other, the great mystery of love, and the simple beauty of God. This is the kind of CD that you will never get tired of and one that you are sure to put on when you need a burst of energy or encouragement knowing that other people experience the same things you face in your own life.

    Must Have CD

    Sanctus Real's Fight the Tide is a CD worth having. From start to finish, it's sure to keep you listening. The songs are not repetitive and each one has a unique sound that causes it to stand out. Sanctus Real's sound isn't too loud, but it will keep you jamming until the very end.

    A MUST HAVE

    this cd is amazing. It's got songs you can really truly rock out to and songs that make you want to cry. Songs that speak to your heart and songs that tug at your soul. It's awesome how these four Ohio natives can take something so wonderful as God's word and turn it into something that ANYONE can enjoy. I myself enjoy God's word as is but they take it to a whole new level!

    The Fight Song

    This CD has become a family favorite from the 10 year old to the 24 year old, as well as us "old parents". This song shows a positive way to deal with lifes negatives. In it's simplist form it tell us to get along,. think before you speak or act, don't hurt each other. The entire CD is done in a very positive uplifting way. Oh, and it really rocks too!!
