All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Pillar returns after the success of 2002's Fireproof with Where Do We Go from Here, a further streamlining of the combo's cross of alternative CCM and secular post-grunge chunkery. Elements of rap-rock still exist, particularly in the intonation of vocalist Rob Beckley, but cuts like "Hypnotized," "Bring Me Down," and "Let It Out" are closer to where Pillar is now, opting for the slick and brooding aggression of a Hoobastank or Seether. The band still prefers to preach subtly -- lyrics allude as easily to the Big JC as they do a hearty or faulty earthly relationship. "I want you to know/I finally see/That you simply love," goes "Simply" -- the lyric sheet prints in caps ...

Elements of rap-rock still exist, particularly in the intonation of vocalist Rob Beckley, but cuts like "Hypnotized," "Bring Me Down," and "Let It Out" are closer to where Pillar is now, opting for the slick and brooding aggression of a Hoobastank or Seether. The band still prefers to preach subtly -- lyrics allude as easily to the Big JC as they do a hearty or faulty earthly relationship. "I want you to know/I finally see/That you simply love," goes "Simply" -- the lyric sheet prints in caps to prevent specific pronoun assignment. The quieter "Rewind" is a similarly first-person meditation on past mistakes, while "Underneath It All" is a propulsive confidence number with some great dirty guitar tones from Noah Henson. Other highlights of this solid effort include the late-album entries "Staring Back" and "One Thing," which offer a bit of grit after the softer detours of Where Do We Go from Here's midsection. It's another quality effort from Pillar, who probably deserve more exposure, as they can hang sonically with any of their mainstream post-grunge peers.

    A Great, Solid Rock Album!

    Pillar is one of among several groups whose music I have followed ever since their start, and this particular album of theirs is without a shadow of a doubt my absolute favorite of theirs. It's a nice solid rock album, with a couple of lighter riffs as well. Pillar also carries with them a clear positive message, and I would recommend this album, or anything by Pillar for that matter, to anyone. It's great!

    consistent, solid progression from Fireproof

    I was so pleased with Fireproof that I almost expected to be disappointed with this release. What could have been either a shallow carbon copy of Fireproof, or such a transition from their established sound that it fell flat, has proven to be neither. I should have known better. Pillar has shied away from their original rap/rock mixture and is now focusing strictly on vocal rock, which enhances their sound greatly. Lyrics still focus a lot on spiritual warfare, adding to the overall power of the songs. There are no "filler" songs here. Powerful guitars, great vocals, thoughtful lyrics and a fist-pumping beat. It's all good. Pillar have matured in every way on this release -- we could very likely look back at this album as the one that established them as one of the big players not just in Christian rock, but in the secular realm as well.

    These guys are BANGIN'!

    Pillar is an awesome band. They've been around for a while now, never ceasing to amaze their fans with their in-your-face lyrics. The thing I enjoy most about these guys, is the fact that they're christians. They don't compromise their faith for anyone, not even record labels. "Where Do We Go From Here?" is a cd that any Christian and Non-Christian should own. It's got uplifting lyrics, and makes you think about life and what's in your future. It also answers questions of the here and now. Rob Beckley's vocals aren't disappointing, but intriguing. Making you want to listen to this cd over and over again. If you were impressed and satisfied with Fireproof (either release);you'll regret not picking up this rockin' disc of devout creativity.
