POWERFUL GUITAR, AWESOME LYRICS, GREAT CD! Aug 19, 2005
This is an awesome CD with a sound rivaling any modern rock band out there. However, this group combines awesome guitar (with fast, heavy riffs and guitar solos) with spiritual lyrics to boot.
12 Stones isn't afraid to express their faith, and it shows on this album. On the smashing hits: Crash, Broken, and The Way I Feel they talk a lot about struggles in life and how much we need Christ to get through all the things we go through.
All the rest of the songs on this album are great as well, so don't get me wrong there (especially Fade Away, Soulfire, and Running Out Of Pain). This is definitely a rare CD you can put in and sit back and enjoy all 12 songs over and over again!
It's an awesome CD by an awesome band - Check it out!!!
Another classic CCR band debut Jun 26, 2005
12 Stones are a quartet band that has been influenced by the now split up 'Creed' in their sound and lyrics. This band is another of these later day Contemporary Christian rock bands that have sprung up. But just like their counterparts 'Across The Sky' and 'Third Day' they have immediately impacted the Christian rock scene with two great hit songs 'Broken' where the influence of Creed is most heard and the soft melodic grace of 'My Life'. The lyrics are based on faith and relationships with each other and with God. This will appeal to both the religious and non-religious like myself. This CD has become one of my most listened to CD's next to the likes of Lifehouse, Staind and The Calling. Fans of other Christian rock bands should enjoy this group for they sing with emotion and true faith in their convictions.
12 STONES - THE BRITISH REVIEW!!! Jun 4, 2005
Ok, lets face it, the British tea bag taste in music is far different to that of the American charts, but what can i say about 12 stones! Absolutely fantastic. As a long time Creed supporter (and now a newly formed Alter Bridge fanatic), I was looking for a fresh band to listen to, and came across 12 stones on christianrock.net. I had a listen to "the way i feel" and absolutely loved the rock/metal guitar riffs and the voice of Paul McCoy. So i decided to try the rest of the album out, and now are one of my favourite bands. I can assure you, that if you were a Creed fan back in their day, you'll love 12 stones. Considering they played with Creed at concert a few years ago, its no wonder where 12 stones got their genre of music from, especially after probably listening to Mark Tremonti play. So overall, coming from a British point of view, i would definately say: if your a Creed/Alter Bridge fan, this album is definately for you. Buy it, download it, whatever...you won't be dissapointed.
Not bad May 21, 2005
I work in a Christian book and music store, so I get to hear it all, usually a month or so before the steet dates. Although I personally think "Potter's Field" is a better CD, this one isn't bad. They are not in the same league as Pillar or Kutless, but who knows how much they will mature as a rock group given time. Just look at how much Pillar has improved over the years. The thing that makes me sad is when I see reviews of Christian rock bands by (obviously) non-Christians who just don't get the message. (EXAMPLE: ok... this band ..honestly just SUCKS and nothing more. in every damn song this stupid singer is saying " i know i need you now " ...i wanna puke i cant believe that some people givem 4 or 5 stars...) There WILL come a time when that reviewer himself will be saying "I know I need you now", and it will be too late. Eternity is a long time to burn in hell.
Enjoyed it more that most albums May 3, 2005
I enjoyed this album alot. I am becoming a fan the more I listen to them. I think there very good there just missing that one hit song that will make them go big. They are just a cult hit right now and by that I mean just the Christian audience. In order to be a true ministry they have to go after more than just the Christian audience which alot of Chrstian bands and labels don't seem to understand today. The CD was pretty good I'll do a to my favorite 3 songs on the album. I like them but I can't stand Creed or Nickelback. I'm a tough critic so even if its only a 5 or 6 doesn't mean the songs terrible its just not great.
Crash 6/10 - They sound alot like Audioslave in this song. Its pretty good but pretty average. They should have had a better start up song. I'll review my two favorite songs on the album.
The Way I Feel 10/10 - I think this song is great. I love this song and its lyrics and what its about. It really spoke to me because I've felt the same. The song is very powerful and I simply love it. A great guitar solo near the end.
Open Your Eyes 8/10 - Good song I like the guitars at the beginning.
