All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Needtobreathe offer up another collection of sweeping, reverent rock songs with The Outsiders, the band's first effort since The Heat earned praise from the Christian community two years prior. This is the musicians' first album as genuine stars, and the music is appropriately huge, with echoing vocals and ringing guitars that take their cues from classic rock. Such epic material has become fairly standard in the CCM world, where the influence of U2 and Coldplay is never more than a guitar riff away. The Outsiders also flirts with touches of roots rock and traditional gospel, though, from the title track's powerful Southern stomp to the sheer power of Bear Rinehart's ...

Needtobreathe offer up another collection of sweeping, reverent rock songs with The Outsiders, the band's first effort since The Heat earned praise from the Christian community two years prior. This is the musicians' first album as genuine stars, and the music is appropriately huge, with echoing vocals and ringing guitars that take their cues from classic rock. Such epic material has become fairly standard in the CCM world, where the influence of U2 and Coldplay is never more than a guitar riff away. The Outsiders also flirts with touches of roots rock and traditional gospel, though, from the title track's powerful Southern stomp to the sheer power of Bear Rinehart's voice. Like Will Hoge, Rinehart puts a contemporary spin on the raw, gritty sounds of Joe Cocker and Otis Redding, and his strong delivery is almost preacher-like in its intensity. As a result, this album covers more ground than records by similar artists, and it does so without alienating any of its secular-minded listeners, too.

    Refreshing, Relaxing, and Positive!

    My girlfriend and I both discovered this artist through Air 1 radio and enjoyed what we heard. I bought us this album the other day, and we really enjoy it. These guys are a mix of southern folk rock, contemporary, and gospel...and it is one of the most refreshing albums in any of these genres I have heard in a while. It also carries a very positive message of hope and redemption within the lyrics. I for one really enjoy these guys, as does my girlfriend, and I would recommend it to anyone other there to check out.

    Refreshing, Original, Fun, and Recommended

    This NeedtoBreathe album has a very original style - a kind of southern, bluesy, hip style. Each song is a lot of fun to listen to. Some of them are country love songs, which I am not typically a big fan of, but each of these has an awesome beat and catchy tune. The rest have a soft Christian message - soft enough that any audience would enjoy, but as a Christian myself I love this addition to my positive music collection. I am not typically the kind of person to listen to things over and over again even when they are new, but I have listened to this CD five times in a row now and love it more every time.
