iTunes Review

With this epochal 34-track set, David Crowder Band says farewell. It's a final statement of Christian devotion from one of worship music’s most innovative acts. Crowder and his bandmates pull out all the stops and touch on a dazzling array of sounds and styles, all in the service of praising God’s redemptive majesty. The stirring piano chords of “Oh Great God, Give Us Rest” build anticipation for such galloping, joyful numbers as “Come Find Me” and “Lord Have Mercy.” The triumphant arena-rock dynamics of “Let Me Feel You Shine” are balanced by stark acoustic-centered tracks like “Oh, My God I’m Coming Home.” The songs from “Sequence 1” through “Sequence 7” make an especially stunning tour de force that runs from gothic choirs through folk interludes and industrial rock explosions. Banjos, fiddles, and mandolins give songs like “Oh My God,” “I Am a Seed,” and “Jesus, Lead Me to Your Healing Waters” jolts of bluegrass energy and old-time gospel passion. The album’s breathtaking musical ambition drives home a timeless message of reverence and rebirth, delivered with humility and abandon.

Beautiful Change of Pace

I can't be the only one who's noticed that the Contemporary Christian Music scene recently has been sorely lacking in diversity of theme and musical genre. It's in this setting that Give Us Rest comes forward to break the mold and give us something that knows both the soaring heights and crushing valleys of the spiritual life, reflecting both the joyful and sorrowful aspects of real life that other Christian artists seem to miss among a clamor of "Jesus is awesome" kinds of songs. Musically, this album is a masterpiece. It's spans many genres while never feeling disjointed, and David Crowder's own personal style really ties it all together. From a religious standpoint, it's important to remember that this album is a reimagining of the Requiem Mass, a Mass for the dead. Fittingly, it spans a lot of spiritual ground, and is refreshingly deep. I cannot recommend this album enough, it's a masterpiece not only for Christian music, but for music in general.

Yes.

A great help for my life as a believer to chase after God, and a great inspiration as we make music to encourage others to do the same.

Yes, indeed!

Truly an amazing album.
