Overview

Why Lime? Inventive worship leader Dave Crowder explains it this way: They took two EPs, one called Green and one Yellow, blended them together, and voilà -- Lime. The EPs were premium giveaways and therefore went mostly unheard by the general public, an oversight fortunately now corrected. Though the CD contains just eight tracks, Crowder's richly expressive vocals and intricate musicality make this a moving experience, brevity notwithstanding. Lime offers several live tracks, all showing DCB to be a passionate performing band, and the in-concert recordings of such noteworthy cuts as "God of Wrath," "Sing Like the Saved," and "You Alone" run the emotional gamut, from awe-inspiring to tender. Crowder is one of Christian music's hidden gems; there's no one else like him. His lyrics are so passionately Christian that there's little chance those outside the religious fold will find him appealing, which is their loss. For those who appreciate music with a spiritual theme, Crowder is a must-have.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jared Johnson
Considering the David Crowder Band's grassroots beginnings (the band formed to counter a lack of church attendance among Baylor University students), it seemed fitting to combine two previously unreleased fan rewards to fill the time between studio albums. Lime came from The Green CD -- recorded in Irvine, CA on the first Passion Experience tour in 2001 -- and The Yellow CD, which included live recordings from an Atlanta concert in 2003. Both were give-aways for fans who attended release parties for Can You Hear Us? and Illuminate or pre-ordered online. The appeal to casual listeners is following the evolution of the band's sound from generic worship to trend-setting electronic pop during their coming-out period. Otherwise, there is little to rival the original studio work of Illuminate and A Collision, the two albums that acted as bookends.
