Wide-Eyed and Mystified

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jared Johnson
Wide-Eyed and Mystified is a line in the infectious track "The More," referring to the awe with which we look at God. But it could just as easily denote the reaction of fans who first become familiar with this Canadian-bred Christian band on this third effort and wonder how they lived so long without this masterly crafted melodic rock.
