Really good, but not great  Sep 8, 2005
I love the back to basics sound of Caedmon's Call. They play real instruments and write their own songs. They sing for their love of music and paint their lyrics like art, singing for Christ, not for themselves. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 was because the setup of the album was a little bumpy for my taste. Some songs were sung live, others were the original recording. Most of the songs that were live were really well done, but I found that a few of them had me wincing at near off-pitch notes.
A little more variety, please.  Jun 11, 2005
I was introduced to Caedmon's call two years ago when I saw them in concert with Jars of Clay. I was hooked! I got Chronicles because I only had the 40 Acres CD and wanted a sampling of their earlier work. I was a little disappointed when I found that six out of seventeen songs were from the 40 Acres CD. And most of the older songs they chose to put on this CD were "new studio recordings", which I didn't like as well as the originals. Although I still love their sound and message, I would have liked to see a little more variety in song choices for this album. I would recommend that you buy the individual albums instead of Chronicles. Plus, there are some other great songs that you will miss if you pass up their other albums!
Reassurance for the Future  Apr 14, 2004
Chronicles is a survey of Caedmon's Call's 12 years of music-making. Excluding rarities offered on their Guild CDs, and thus failing to be a complete retrospective, it offers a mix of studio and live recordings, plus two new songs. In addition, it contains brief interviews on their Fall 2004 album. Is it worth it?

Background: Caedmon's Call lost founding member Derek Webb to a solo career and found itself in the unenviable position of promoting a new album, Back Home, without one of its best singers and songwriters. Replacing Webb with Andrew Osenga, the band played on--unevenly at first, from what I've heard, but eventually with full confidence. Now, it is poised to produce what could be its most significant work to date. How does Caedmon's Call reassure its fan base that the band is still viable and worthy of support for the ambitious Fall 2004 CD while possibly wooing new admirers?

The New Songs: Chronicles bookends highlights of the band's 12 years of music with two new songs, "All My Life" and "A New Day", which were contributed by the band's in-house songwriters Josh Moore (with Terry Kelley) and Andrew Osenga. "All My Life" points to the past and opens with a robust cello solo that leads directly into the full band playing. It's a rather simple song, but it has some nice lyrical touches ("My reluctance to be/My version of me/Is all the writing on the wall I ever need") and bodes well for Josh Moore's songwriter status. Andrew Osenga's song points to the future and demands repeated listenings; it reveals a kaleidoscope of sounds, revealing the band is very much alive and well, and it shows that Osenga is a talent to be reckoned with. (More on Osenga later.)

The Live and Studio Recordings of Old. The remaining songs survey every studio album the band has made; live recordings range over their career--some with Derek, some with Andrew Osenga. (Sadly, none of the rarities from the Guild CDs are offered. Given how rare Guild 1 is--I don't have it--I was really hoping some of these would appear here. Some of their best songs were on Guild 2, e.g. "The Rich Song" and "Potifar's Door".) Highlights: "Lead of Love" from their eponymous album boasts a lovely, mellow guitar solo by Derek Webb. "This World" dates from My Calm/Your Storm, and this recent live version is amazing; the band is definitely not dead--Andrew Osenga on mandolin! Like his work on Eric Peters' Bookmark, Osenga works subtle magic. The radio version of "Hands of the Potter" is even MORE percussive than the studio version. The new studio version of "Bus Driver" boasts a for-old-time's-sake reunion with Derek Webb, and Derek has fun with this old song; it's interesting to hear how he's changed as a vocalist.

The Enhancements. The CD also contains a video selling the band's upcoming Fall release. I'm intrigued by their project that embraces influences, ideas, and musicians from Christians around the world. Given Josh Moore's orchestral mindset, Osenga's subtle magic, the better-than-ever vocals of Cliff and Danielle Young, and the songwriting skills of Moore and Osenga, I believe the band can pull this project off.

Conclusion: I think Chronicles makes an excellent case for the continued life of Caedmon's Call. As musicians, they haven't been better. "All My Life" shows they can still exude that "Caedmon's sound". "A New Day" reveals that the band can renew and reinvent while remaining true to itself. They still have a lot of life left in them. Given the low price, worthy new songs, and powerful live performances, I recommend this CD to old fans and new acquaintances.
