Customer Reviews for Tooth & Nail Records This Is An Outrage CD

Tooth & Nail Records This Is An Outrage CD

The dozen tracks throughout This Is An Outrage range from pure bred alternative pop to assertive modern rock, wrapped around a topical plane that spans the palette of meaningful, whimsical and satirical. The scalding "Kick It Off" is sure to be a fierce concert classic and the aforementioned "Worth As Much As a Counterfeit Dollar" possesses one of the most contagious choruses in recent memory. "Night of Your Life Is When You Die" is an anthem for anyone who embraces the straight-edge scene, suggesting the party hearty mentality isn't all that it's cracked up to be. The energy escalating "Return" is amongst the disc's most inspirational, while the historically slanted "Frank Morris" provides a fictional account of the famed Alcatraz prison escape.

This album was great, i didn't really know what to expect with a band like capital lights, but all the songs are quite catchy, great guitar riffs with solid supporting drum rhythms, i often find myself listening to this album ALOT, which i guess is a good thing.

Very distinctive sound and a lot of energy in their music. Overall pretty good CD, but not a lot of references to Christ in this album.

The only real clues that Capital Lights are a Christian band are their association with the Tooth & Nail label, Aaron Sprinkle production, and the "thank you" notes on the CD notes. Lyrically there is little outside of Return to suggest overtly Christian themes. That said, the songs are undeniably catchy and well-performed. The use of keyboards adds a degree of sophistication and diversity to the arrangements (especially on Mile Away, co-written with Sprinkle), though on a couple occasions the sequencing of songs highlights some of the tunes' similarity. Bryson Phillips has an excellent pop/rock voice. On the whole, This Is An Outage is not so much a "Christian" CD as it is a CD made by Christians whose music stands up on its own as well in the secular market as it does for those who will gravitate to it by virtue of its Christian pedigree.

This cd is great! I saw this band on tour with Run Kid Run and Hawk Nelson. This cd has songs who can sing along to. The whole cd is great.
