iTunes Review

Images of revival and resurrection turn up repeatedly in Illusions, Spoken's first album in six years. The Arkansas-bred hardcore band has a lot to say about the sustaining power of Christian faith—but it also may be celebrating its own ability to survive after numerous label shifts and lineup changes. Founding member Matt Baird remains a mighty-lunged frontman capable of harrowing screams and soaring melodic vocals, avoiding overkill in favor of believably impassioned testimony. “Stand Alone,” “Through It All," and the title track are ferocious spiritual anthems filled with anguish and healing. Baird stands firm against the enemy in “Beneath the Surface” and fuses romantic love and spiritual passion in “Take Everything.” Pop-tinged tracks like “More Than You Know” ride buoyant rhythms while keeping their messages uncompromised. Whether the band is delivering an all-out rock assault (“Shadow over Me”), moving with a swaggering strut (“Don’t Go”), or ascending to deliver an heroic chorus hook (“Calm the Storm”), Spoken backs up its heaviness with sharp, supple musicianship.

I Love you Spoken!!!

Spoken is truly an amazing band... All the groups of Spoken were always talented, and always Christ-centered. All of Spoken's albums have been my favorite, but this one, simply just blows my mind. It is all the best rock styles composed into an album. Brilliantly creative, and truly inspiring.

As with many hardcore Spoken fans, we looked forward to this album for a long time, and it is truly worth much more than our little wait. Spoken was patiently creating this incredible record while performing numerous tours and shows. -- Spoken truly melts the skin off my face live.

Thank you, Spoken. You have been a light in my dark times. Matt, I truly connect with your lyrics. I know God is soo freaking proud of you!

Christian heavy rock band Spoken formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1996.

Second LP ...What Remains, was similar, but it wasn't until their third (and final) record for Metro 1, Echoes of the Spirit Still Dwell, that they began to get much heavier.
