I thought I would have to do a transfer of this from vinyl to digital myself.
I'm glad I checked, because I wouldn't have done as good a job. A longer review is merited, but in the moment I have, let me recommend this album. As a young person trying to find something authentic, something earnest from the vocal to the lyric to the snare hit, in "christian" music, I was having little success.
Not saying it wasn't there, but I was in a position of trying to like stuff and trying to think it was good. My heart wanted to find it, and so I was being overly generous to the industry offerings.
My dad introduced me to this record, to which he had a personal connection, and even though it wasn't exactly my style at the time, it had me because of its realness. That led me to really listen, and thank God. One person found this helpful.

DPReview Digital Photography. Give Him the chance. You got to mend the wing with truth not a bunch of lies. If your tastes trend towards the metal side of things then by all means give The Exkursions a chance- you could very well end up pleasantly surprised as a result.
The song rumbles its length to raw and edgy guitars and heavy set drums but with a grooving beat upholding the backdrop. Lead guitar comes across every bit as gutsy while the sandpaper lead vocals align with the dogged scene. Fans of Glenn Kaiser Band will embrace this one. Fast paced and up-tempo, the song reinforces a churning low end and some hook driven undercurrents to establish a milieu on the catchy side of things.
Instrumental moments give rise to a jazzy jam based flavoring. The song plods its length in trenchant fashion as Mike Johnson has a field day on guitar, laying down some perseverant rhythm guitar but also cutting loose with searing leads that start slowly but end up floating between the left and right channel. It does not get more psychedelic than that, huh? Lead guitar almost gives rise to a funky feel this time around. The song starts its first couple minutes to an improvised conversation between band members that segues to a stretch of distorted open air lead guitar.
This one slogs its way, sometimes laid back and at others rollicking but all the while exuding a ton of grit laden attitude and pull you in on first listen proclivity. Musicianship is also a strength as Mike Johnson delivers more fiery licks and chops and Phil Johnson some technically done drum work.
Otherwise, we are treated to an onslaught of driving riffs and powerful drumming with some flashy soloing thrown in. This one is characterized by its calmer guitar flavorings - nowhere near as rocking as those preceding it - and hints of keyboards in the backdrop. The overall effect is a jazzy almost flowing pieces that helps add to the albums versatility. Interviews s. Faceboo k. Release Dates. Peter Carlsohn's The Rise -.
