Guide Review - Big Daddy Weave - 'What I Was Made For'
The classic "You're Worthy of My Praise", performed with BarlowGirl, is already heating up the airwaves. I can't say that I was overly thrilled by it, but I'm not a big fan of covers. I'm much more drawn to new material and BDW does not disappoint in this area.
I can't rave enough about "Without You", a mellow song reeking of devotion. It is stunningly well done. "Killing Me Again", featuring Fred Hammond, is a powerful message-driven song about addiction that in a perfect world I'd love to see featured with morning announcements in every high school. But I'm a big dreamer. Don't miss "It's All About You," a simple yet commanding anthem (love that organ!) The last track is a tricky one, "Quiet Time", 5 minutes of silence. That's right, no song. Weaver's notes say: "If you have time to listen to this record, then here's five minutes to spend with God." Ya gotta love these guys.
