The Bottom Line
While these "Band With a Mission" winners definitely have the talent and the heart, I have to wonder if the whole overnight thing might not hurt them. Their debut album was rushed to the point that only two members are actually on it. Wes Willis and Kevin Huguley sang and studio musicians did everything else.
- Wes Willis has a beautiful, strong voice
- While the sound is great and the lyrics aren't fluff, the "made for radio" feel is a bit strong
- Style: Pop/soft rock/worship
- 11 songs
- Released: May, 2007
Guide Review - Rush Of Fools - 'Rush of Fools'
With shades of Casting Crowns and early Building 429 in their sound, the lyrics (that the band did write) are no joke. "Undo" is a prime example ...
- focused on the score, but I could never win
Trying to ignore, a life of hiding my sin
To label me a hypocrite would be
Only scratching the surface of who I've been known to be
Honestly; how many teens do you know that are that real and introspective?
Highlights on the release, for me, were "Undo," "We All," "For Those," "Jesus Hurry" and "Already." In fact, "We All" could easily become another Chris Tomlin or Matt Redman type worship staple.
Easy to like, easy to sing along with and showing great potential, Rush of Fools has what it takes to go far. I have high hopes that this group of talented, young musicians will grow into a strong presence in the Christian Music field. We definitely need more young leaders like these guys.
