Overview Big Daddy Weave hit the national scene with a bang! They became the BEST SELLING NEW ARTIST at Christian Retail in 2002 with the release of 'One and Only,' received numerous honors and accolades, and since then have garnered FOUR TOP 3 RADIO SINGLES between their two albums. While all of these things brought recognition to the band, their lives were turned upside down the summer of 2004 - in both good and hard ways. Hurricane Ivan swept across the East Coast and demolished the band's offices and left their homes and communities devastated. Through this difficult time, Big Daddy Weave banded together and met with Jesus in a whole new way as their families were expanding and sharing the joys of new life in the midst of much loss. This album, more than any that have come before, is a very real peek into the lives of the members - their experiences and what they have learned.
'For those who don't, we want them to know that they were made for a moment by moment relationship with God.' - MIKE WEAVER of BIG DADDY WEAVE

You guys have done it again and better! This new CD should be rated with 10 stars. It is so Christ filled. The growth of you guys as a band is amazing. Every single song on the CD is magnificent. "Without You", is the greatest of all ! The talent of Big Daddy Weave is the best out there. This CD showcases it all!
Great CD Aug 4, 2005
It seems so often in the field of Christian music that you have to choose between meaningful lyrics with spiritual insight and the often-noisy `rock' songs that are so catchy and enjoyable. However, with Big Daddy Weave's album WHAT I WAS MADE FOR...you get both!
The title track `What I Was Made For' is a catchy rock number with uncompromising lyrics. It grows on you with each listening. (In fact, I was so intrigued by this song, I listened to it three times before I even listened to the rest of the album). Definitely one of the highlights of the album, 5 stars.
"Just The Way I Am" is another great song with another great message. 5 stars
"For Who You Are" demands that you turn it up. It is definitely one of the loudest, clearest songs about God's attributes that I know. 5 stars.
"It's All About You" is one of the slower songs on the album...although it is far from boring. A good modern praise song. It's simple lyrics will make it easy to learn. 5 stars
"You're Worthy of My Praise" has been one of my favorite modern worship songs since I first heard it on a Passion album BETTER IS ONE DAY. Barlow Girl (a great band) joins Big Daddy Weave on this rendition of this modern classic. 5 stars.
"His Name Is Jesus" is a slighty-less-catchy rock song (compared to "What I Was Made For" and "Just The Way I Am", but a great song all the same. With repeated listenings, it's sure to accumulate fans. 5 stars
"Give Up, Let Go" is a good song. 4 stars
"Killing Me Again" is probably my least favorite song on the album. It is very different musically from the rest of the songs on the album. 3 stars.
"Without You" is another slower paced song with merits all its own. 4 stars.
"Words of Life" is another slow song. It is definitely one of the highlights on the album. 5 stars.
Great for fans of Sonicflood, Third Day, Kutless, and Jeremy Camp.
In this case, different is GREAT!!! Jul 27, 2005
The guys from BDW are the greatest bunch of guys you would want to know. Humble, Christ-driven, and down to Earth. I was first exposed to their music when I came across their independent release, "Neighborhoods." Ever since then, they've been on God's straight and narrow in doing what He wants them to do through their talents and music. This new album is right on with all of their previous releases: Honest, worshipful, encouraging, and inspires anyone who listens to it to want to grow their relationship with Christ. What a novel idea to leave the last track silent!!! Just The Way I Am, Give Up, Let Go, and Without You are some of my favorites. The sound is different...a little more heavy, but it's done so well. And the drum tracks are done to perfection. New and old fans, you won't regret this purchase.
