Overview

One of the brightest spots on the CCM map in 2005, Lifesong was powered by a second dose of Mark Hall's earnestly challenging worship themes and a penchant for reflective pop. The Florida band's sophomore album was the number two best-selling Christian record in 2005. It nearly went gold after four months in release and came a mere 20,000 units short of overcoming Switchfoot's Nothing Is Sound for the top spot. The mega-hit title track seemed ubiquitous for months on end, culminating in a pair of Dove Awards for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year and Group of the Year. Hall's artistic balladry buoyed other hits, including "Does Anybody Hear Her," the story of a wayward young woman and the church masses who unrighteously judge her rather than reach out. This type of "painful but true" storytelling never seems heavy-handed, which may explain the CD's runaway success. Listeners seemed to take comfort in the Scripture-based calls to action that challenged churchgoers to admit their shortcomings. Songwriting credits include Nichole Nordeman on "Stained Glass Masquerade." From start to finish, the album showcases songwriting that is consistent, polished, and potent, furthering the septet's reputation as one of Christian music's most popular acts of the 21st century.

I LOVE Casting Crowns and I had to get Lifesong as soon as it came out because their first was simply amazing! "Stained Glass Masquerade" really touched me because I know that sometimes I feel inadequate and like I'm putting on a mask and I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't measure up. Lifesong is definitely my favorite song though-it's a wonderful song of praise and love for our awesome God!

Just I thought the last album could not be approached, much less exceeded, This group has done it. It provides the heart and spirit of the Christian Faith.

If you want to feel better, to feel uplifted, then Lifesong (or anything from Casting Crowns) is for you. What an amazing group of talented individuals!

If you like their previous album, you'll love this one. The songs contain deep and convicting thoughts, motivating this believer to have a deeper and authentic relationship with Christ! While many Christian artists sing superficial "feel good about your self" songs, Casting Crowns has taken the liberty to address issues in modern day churches as well as songs of encouragement and worship.

Yet another great Christian Contemporary genre CD! Lifesong and Set Me Free are my two favorites on this CD. If you like MercyMe or Stephen Curtis Chapman, then this is your CD.
