Album Review

Thankful marked the end of Caedmon's Call's ten-year run with Essential Records. While 2004's Chronicles included live and rare versions of some of the band's hits, Thankful is a traditional best-of collection. The band's warm cover version of Rich Mullins' "Hope to Carry On" is included, as are acoustic favorites like "Lead of Love" and "This World." Over half of the collection is taken from their self-titled 1997 album and 1999's 40 Acres, leaving the remainder of their material a bit underrepresented. Fans might argue that the omission of number one hit "Coming Home" was an error. However, Thankful remains a fitting ode to the band's popular acoustic folk-pop.

Customer Reviews

New CD coming next month!

If you have never listened to Caedmon's Call, this Cd has some good songs, although not the best ones. Don't buy this Cd if you like Caedmon's, but if you would like to get a sample of them it's okay. If you are a fan, their next release is coming out the end of August and can be pre-ordered on their web site.

Skip this and buy Caedmon's new album in August - Derek is back, so it will hopefully be back to the Caedmon's Call most true fans miss.

The group originally included Aaron Tate, who left the band shortly after its formation, but he continued to write songs with Young. After...
