That Was Then, This Is Now

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Chasen make their major-label debut with That Was Then This Is Now, an album that flirts with some secular traditions -- alt-rock chief among them -- but lays its cards on the sacred side of the table. Like Switchfoot, the band takes its cues from post-grunge's swagger and U2's uplift, creating a sound that mimics the fist-pumping appeal of stadium rock but champions a more spiritual message.
