Until the Whole World Hears

All Music Guide - Jared Johnson
Casting Crowns may not alter their songwriting approach much from album to album, but that's more of a credit than an indictment. After all, that approach has made them a best-selling contemporary Christian band since their debut in 2003. The consistency in their music comes because they see themselves as ministers first and music artists second. Their well-known lead vocalist and songwriter Mark Hall doesn't approach an album like a typical artist who picks and chooses songs based on how they fit musically. Rather, songs that make the cut on a Casting Crowns album are the ones that Hall feels have the most impact on his own youth ministry. This focus, combined with the ...

After all, that approach has made them a best-selling contemporary Christian band since their debut in 2003. The consistency in their music comes because they see themselves as ministers first and music artists second. Their well-known lead vocalist and songwriter Mark Hall doesn't approach an album like a typical artist who picks and chooses songs based on how they fit musically. Rather, songs that make the cut on a Casting Crowns album are the ones that Hall feels have the most impact on his own youth ministry. This focus, combined with the band's musical prowess, makes Until the World Hears another powerful worship experience. Their hearts remain in scripture, and their themes continue to get right to the point. And no one can argue about racking up 4.5 million album sales in six years. Still, when everything they touch turns platinum, some might wonder how a little more variety would sound from such experienced professionals. Besides a minor lineup change -- new drummer Brian Scoggin replaces Andy Williams -- the band's core sound continues to land in the AC cross hairs. They have so much to offer in word and note that longtime fans can't help but wonder how they might update their sound on future releases.

    Totally Fabulous--A Must Buy!!!!

    I highly recommend this CD to everyone! Especially, for all the teenagers and young adults in your life. I like it so much that I have bought several copies for friends and family as Christmas gifts. Trust me--you won't be disappointed!

    Another superb offering from Crowns

    The title song has a way of growing on you, to the point that you've just got to listen to it over and over again. The genuine love Crowns has for the Lord comes through in their music consistently, and UTWWH (Until The Whole World Hears) album is no exception to this rule. Although to date my favorite album is "The Altar and the Door", this one ranks right up their with it. With the release of UTWWH, Crowns show why they repeatedly win the "Group of the Year" in the annual Dove Awards. If you are a Crowns fan, you'll definitely want to pick this CD up, but then, you probably have already!

    Had to have it!

    One of the only cds I listen to from start to finish. There is no song worth skipping. The music is awesome and the lyrics are powerful. I love it so much I bought a copy for my best friend. This is music with a message.
