EDITORS’ NOTES

Percolating beats, high-gloss guitars, and hearty gang vocals give the 14th album by the Christian trio Phillips, Craig & Dean a fresh, contemporary feel. What hasn’t changed for these stalwart singer/songwriters is the plainspoken, Bible-rooted message of their music. Rousing electronica-tinged tracks like “What Hope Feels Like,” “If Not for Grace,” and “Let It Be Known” set off the group’s signature vocal harmonies. The countrified “Voices from the Other Side” (written for Dean’s late father) and the stirring modern hymn “Jesus, Only Jesus” recall the kind of devotional ballads that first earned PC&D acclaim in the '90s.

Cover Band

I think the composition and the vocals are decent. I’ll give them that. But sorry to say, Phillips, Craig & Dean are nothing but a cover band. The last 3-4 radio singles were simply covers of popular worship songs off various albums. As a band, where is the creativity? Where is originality? Why are you gaining all the recognition that is meant for the original artists? Please, enough! You have tremendous talent with vocals, write your own stuff!

No Longer A Force

No originality. Dan used to write great stuff. Randy’s stuff was good too. Shawn’s was ok. They are no longer original. They’ve lost their touch.

Too electronic!

PCD is one of my favorites. However, this album is their worst yet! I loved how they used to write their own songs and their awesome harmonies with each other. Their previous songs just make you sing praises to God in awe and worship. This album is so electronic...it sounds more like pop music than christian worship! Unfortunately, all too many christian groups are going more electric pop, they are losing their fans...Mercy Me, PCD. I hope that they will know that there are still a lot of fans that like and want the original and meaningful songs...
