Guide Review - Pillar - 'Where Do We Go From Here'
On the down side, some of the songs sound a bit slick and over-produced. But that doesn't take away from the fact that the lyrics are all easy to relate to at all. "Bring Me Down" and "Rewind" are easily the stand-out tracks with "Rewind" being one of those songs that any Christian out there can say "been there, done that."
Pillar is a good band with a great message. With this release they ask, Where do we go from here? and after the MCA label failure and the lack of support from Geffen, it's not surprising that they felt a bit lost. Hopefully they have found a true "home" with Flicker Records and they'll feel comfortable enough to be themselves in the future. They're a hard rock band with a lot of talent. They don't need to be "slicked up" for the masses to present great music. Raw passion, which we know they have from Fireproof, equals power. They have plenty of both and I hope to hear more of it in the future.
