'Who You Are' - Desperation Band Stands out From the Crowd
Desperation Band, in case you're not familiar with them, is made up of Jared Anderson, Jon Egan, and Glenn Packiam. These guys are associate worship pastors at New Life Church in Colorado Springs under the leadership of senior pastor Ted Haggard and worship pastor Ross Parsley.
About the Songs
Another one of my personal favorites is "Chasing." This is a well put together mid-tempo song with a nice bass line. The lyrics talk about pursuing after God and how he satisfies.
My only complaint is that several songs into the album the music slows down, and it gets a bit boring in certain areas. However, I would say that this is a very solid album overall. Desperation Band delivers a much needed more modern worship album with originality. This is not just another worship band that is merely a clone of so many others. They are definitely worth a listen!
