iTunes Review

The title has two meanings: Following the departure of longtime frontman John James, Peter Furler got up from the drummer’s stool to become the Newsboys’ new singer, and his natural charisma defined the group’s second golden age. Then again, the album is also a call for believers to be bold in their evangelism, something these 10 songs capture with the usual Newsboys quirkiness. Highlights include the soaring ballad “Entertaining Angels,” the strobe-light beat of “Hallelujah,” and the sing-along opener, “Whoohoo,” sung by bassist Phil Joel.

Legendary band

Every album starting from go and back was when they were in their prime. Their lyrics and music had originality that made them Different from every other band. You don't here other bands like the newsboys with peter furler anymore. They were part of the big bands era. ever since peter left their style changed completely to something that is not the newsboys 2015 will be they're 30th anniversary

2 of 4!

If you don’t know what the title means, it means that this is album 2 of 4 that I still love and listen to today. This is yet another great Newsboys album that they brought to us! Sure, John James may have left, but that meant Peter went on vocals full time! Definitely a classic Newsboys album to buy!
Favorites: ALL OF THEM!!!

The group gained six number one singles on the Christian charts, and has been featured in more secular media...
