Album Review

While Pillar honed their trademark modern rock sound, the world changed around them. Rock fans in 2008 no longer sought the next Hoobastank, but instead had gravitated to the comfortable, family-friendly appeal of DAUGHTRY and Nickelback. As a result, real rock acts either found a new way to package themselves or became yesterday's trend. Thankfully, the four-man outfit from Tulsa found a way to be heard by millions of new listeners by marketing themselves at major sporting events, including Super Bowl XLII. The title track was picked up by ESPN for various promotions. The sound on For the Love of the Game varies little from Pillar's previous efforts, but a renewed focus gives it enough revitalization to pique some interest. These guys have always been comfortable in their own skin, and now they're apparently at home on SportsCenter as well.

Fantastic Album!

The title says it all!

For The Love Of... All That Is ROCK!

Pillar is a personal favorite artist of mine. One of the first bands I discovered shortly after finding Jesus, these guys did two things for me: (1) helped my faith and assurance in my Father grow, and (2) they showed me that Christian music ISN'T lame!
I mean, these guys blow me away... ESPECIALLY in this album. I've found that Christian music can be found in just about every music genre, from Gospel (which is great) to screamo (not really my thing either way). And in this respect, Pillar is one of the best out there.
As time went on, they went from "ok" (in my opinion) to what you see in this album. "For The Love Of The Game" is their best album yet, with each and every track just as epic as the last. I recommend this album EXTREMELY. Pop it in at the next party you host, and just watch what happens!!!

Pillar is comprised of Rob Beckley (vocals), Lester Estelle (drums), Noah Henson (guitar), and Kalel (bass). These Christian rockers with an alt-metal edge have been honing their infectious sound since 1998 while attending Ft. Hays State University in northwestern Kansas. A deal with Flicker was inked in 2000 after the band's self-released debut, Metamorphosis, impressed the label. Within months, Pillar followed things up with Above. Their first single, "Open Your Eyes," was popular on the college...
