iTunes Review

From its opening track, Come to the River demonstrates its Southern rock bona fides with twang-laden vocals, searing slide guitar, and swampy ambiance. The key element that distinguishes this Nashville-based outfit from similar groups is its collective Christian faith. Lead singer/guitarist Walker brings a compelling backstory as a rebellious preacher’s son to the project, steeping his tunes in Biblical content while serving up a gritty, roots-based sonic gumbo that suggests The Black Crowes, The Allman Brothers, and Third Day in various combinations. “Gonna Be Alright,” “Make Me New,” and “Can't Break Me” carry a convincing guitar bite, along with a theme of spiritual revival. Slower numbers like “Brother” and “Singing Stone” (featuring vocals by All Sons & Daughters’ David Leonard and Leslie Jordon, respectively) have a bittersweet quality that shades into alt-country terrain. “When Mercy Found Me” provides a radio-friendly entry point into the album’s redemptive message. It's a highly promising first effort, fusing an outlaw’s fiery spirit with a believer’s passion.

Customer Reviews

Solid. Great energy. Well done. Strong message.

Not completely original as there are hints of so many bands ... but for the genre, it is definitely a home run. There are hints of Chris Cornell (in his Audioslave days, not Soundgarden). There's some NeedToBreathe. A little Kings Of Leon, at times. The pop-sensibility of Nickelback. Little hints of fellow Christian artist Leeland. Even a little of the lesser known band Golden State, who are a poor man's The Fray.

There are a lot of good influences here, all thrown into a blender and the end result is the Rhett Walker Band. Not to say that this band hasn't brought their own 'something' to the table, but it does sound like a lot of borrowed influences -- which is more than fine in rock-n-roll.

"Get Up, Get Out" sounds like early 00-era rock. In the style of a Fuel, a Nickelback, etc. If you like that genre, you'll dig this. Lyrics a bit too much on the nose, but good production. Same with a track like "Make Me New".

Personal faves are tracks like "Brother" or "Singing Stone", where it's stripped down a bit, or "Vessel" which has a nice groove.

Lowlight for me is "All I Need", which sounds like standard been there, done that CCM, which is a genre I generally try to avoid.

Awesome

God has truly blessed this band. The music is top notch and the message is clear. I believe God will continue to bless the Rhett Walker Band because they are doing what they do for the right reason, to show honor to God. Awesome album cannot wait to hear more.

Nice

It is surely a blessing to hear something new! God has given you a remarkable means for delivering his word. This is how he gets those younger listeners, but it also works on this 60 year old. Thanks for a truly memorable way of being closer to my savior.
