This is like buying a "Top Hits" CD only to find that it's not by the original artists. These are supposedly the songs tearing up churches, but these lounge band renditions are more of a snooze than the tired hymns they're meant to replace. Can this be the same Maranatha Music that once put out the Praise and Maranatha series of albums? That once had Tom Howard arranging their records? Does it have any relation to the Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa that put out the Altar Boys' Gut Level Music, Undercover's Boys and Girls Renounce the World and Leslie Phillips on Back to the Rock? When you want to put those out again, Maranatha, I'll be listening.
The good thing is that if you get a CCLI license, you can perform these songs at your own church, and some of them are strong songs when played by real bands like Third Day, Delirious, and the O.C. Supertones. This CD demonstrates the down side of cranking out praise songs as a cottage industry. Go listen to the Beatles (Ringo had talking drums, not a drum machine). You say you want a Reformation? Start with the music.
