Say It Loud

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
The name says it all on this major-label debut from Sanctus Real, an Ohio-based modern rock foursome. Say It Loud is best appreciated with the volume at 11, in part because this kind of upbeat, buzz-saw-guitar rock demands it. Most of the 12 tracks examine the usual themes of God's love, staying strong in the faith, and encouraging fellow Christians in their walk. None of this is especially new, but lead singer Matt Hammitt and lead guitarist Chris Rohman, who wrote or co-wrote all of the songs, have an ear for strong melodic hooks, while producer Pete Stewart shows his talent for turning power chords into things of beauty.

The name says it all on this major-label debut from Sanctus Real, an Ohio-based modern rock foursome. Say It Loud is best appreciated with the volume at 11, in part because this kind of upbeat, buzz-saw-guitar rock demands it. Most of the 12 tracks examine the usual themes of God's love, staying strong in the faith, and encouraging fellow Christians in their walk. None of this is especially new, but lead singer Matt Hammitt and lead guitarist Chris Rohman, who wrote or co-wrote all of the songs, have an ear for strong melodic hooks, while producer Pete Stewart shows his talent for turning power chords into things of beauty. Hammitt sometimes gets lost in all the bone-crushing guitars, but when his voice is allowed to shine, as on the title track or the album's two ballads, he has a knack for nuance amid all the frenzy. Speaking of ballads, Sanctus Real's softer side, as heard on "Inspiration" and "I Love You," provides some of the most poignant tracks on Say It Loud. The band may chafe at the notion, but sometimes a whisper is more powerful than a shout.
All Music Guide - Steven Douglas Losey
Say It Loud is the debut opus from Toledo Ohio's' Sanctus Real. Produced by rock veteran Pete Stewart, this debut is a proclamation of edgy modern rock meeting energy-bursts from front to end. Cuts like "Captains Chair" and the title track are straightforward rock ventures that boast meaty guitar hooks and driving rhythms reflecting the flavor of the disc's heavier moments. On the flip side, tunes like "Hey Wait" and "After Today" present the band's lighter side in a flattering light. Each tune is a radio-ready power ballad that exhibits the same potency as bands like the Elms and Audio Adrenaline. Throughout the disc vocalist Matt Hammitt is sterling, while guitarist Chris Rohman delivers potent riffs throughout, offering memorable hooks and rock bravado. Say It Loud is a solid debut from a Midwest powerhouse that seems to have found the groove.

    Saw them in concert and fell in love

    I saw Sanctus Real while they were on the See Spot Rock tour.... and boy do they rock! The leead singer Matt has a very good voice, and most of their songs are very catchy. They are very nice in person too (they signed autographs after the show). Audience of One, Say it Loud, Captain's Chair, and Hey Wait are some of my favorite tracks. I highly recommend this album. It has a positive message as well as great sounding music.
