13 Songs, 47 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Remedy Drive’s 10th album is a compelling marriage of urgent, precisely focused lyrics and textured yet hard-hitting music, offering something more artistically resonant than the usual Christian pop/rock radio fare. The tracks are informed by the band’s ongoing involvement with The Exodus Road, an organization dedicated to fighting the international sex trade. “Don’t let them own me, don’t let them use me,” declares lead singer David Zach in the title number, a surging, darkly rhythmic tune that sets the album's overall tone. Songs like “Dear Life,” “Love Is Our Weapon,” and “When a Soul’s Set Free” continue the theme of physical and spiritual liberation with a resolute sense of hope. Commodity’s sonic settings are nuanced, evocative, and frequently ingenuous, expanding Remedy Drive’s palette with airy choirs (“The Wings of the Dawn”), moody electronica (“June,” “The Cool of the Day”), and stately orchestral backdrops (“King of Kings”). Corey Horn’s insistent basslines play a crucial role here. It's a breakthrough album by this veteran faith-centered quartet.
