Stumbled on this by accident really, not sure how I missed her cause I try to keep up. Good stuff, like the one reviewer says her voice is an acquired taste but musically the album is awesome and her voice fits it. Peter W. your review is lacking in specifics on why the music doesn't glorify Christ. I'm curious is you ready the profile that the Artist herself wrote. You also state that you have been reviewing music for 12 years. You certainly seem qualified, I'd like to read some of your other reviews. Where have they published?

To rebut a previous review by another user on this page, Eowyn is indeed a Christian artist. You only have to listen to her lyrics to know that. Giving one example, her song "To My Surprise" contains the lyrics "you heard my cry, Lord Jesus rescue me." Her live shows are filled with her proclaiming the glory of Jesus. Hard rock does not automatically mean devil music, which seems to be the conclusion that was jumped to. Now, as for her music: I love it. Her voice is unique and suits the genre. It can be uplifting or heartbreaking. This album is full of wonderful songs that believers can listen to, but I also think it could reach out to the lost or mislead.

I was curious about this record, hoping to stumble across a band that might possibly live up to Evanescence (no longer a Christian band) or Flyleaf. Eowyn doesn't quite hold the charm of either, mostly due to the fact that Eowyn's voice is definitely an acquired taste, and it will be a deal-breaker for some. Eowyn's music has great instrumentation though, blending heavy electronics with hard rock and gothic undertones. Some of the highlights include To My Suprise (feat. Pillar's lead singer), To My Suprise, the touching Unfinished Memories, and Crashing. I wasn't blown away, but for fans of female-fronted rock bans like Flyleaf or Fireflight, I'd recommend this record. (Just listen to some samples first; as I said, her voice may not be to everyone's taste.)

Anyone who rated this album with any rating above ZERO is seriously in trouble in God's perspective when it comes to knowing what music is Christian or not. I have been reviewing Christian music for 12 years. This music (more like noise) is horrible and clearly has roots in a place that couldn't be further from heaven's gates. A horrible record. Definitely NOT Christian. Where is the glorification of Christ in this record??...seriously...where?

Seriously! Amazing cd... amazing girl... and amazing message! I'm more into the hardcore stuff, but Eowyn looked interesting from the first time I say her merch. Saw her live... and was hooked. Bought this cd... AND LOVE IT! She has an amazing voice! Can be calm or even harsh. Beautiful lyrics and love the music. But most of all, she has an amazing heart! Definately would reccomend this cd as I have done with everyone I have met!

A unique cross between Rebecca St. James and Flyleaf, I was surprised by how much I like this cd. Very different and very common with the secular band Evanescence. Great lyrics and harder rock music give an eerie touch but this sophomore release is a great cd. My favs are Life, Silent Screams, Unfinished Memories, and Crashing, but there are no tracks to skip in this album.
