iTunes Review

On their fifth album, Building 429 displays the same Christian commitment and guitar-fueled energy that made their 2004 hit “Glory Defined” so memorable. The band’s sound is crisp and tight here and lead singer Jason Roy adds to the album’s sense of honest, reality-grounded expression by drawing upon his recent experiences as a worship pastor. Tracks like “Made for You,” “One Foot” and “Awaken Us” deal with questions of faith in hard times, underscoring their themes with hard-cracking drums and searing guitars. Even stronger is “Right Beside You,” an uplifting call for unity featuring Firelight’s Dawn Michele on co-lead vocals. Listen to the Sound offers some effective sonic contrasts, adding synthesizer embellishments in spots and laying down sparse, acoustic-driven grooves (most effectively in “Love Has Been Spoken”). Interwoven with the chorus hooks and insistent rhythms is a message of earthly conflict (especially in “War Zone”) and eventual salvation. Building 429’s ability to capture a believer’s struggles makes Listen to the Sound rewarding to hear.

First off, thank you for your input but you are wrong. And I will tell you why.

1. I am a teenager, and there are plenty of popular, terrible songs out there right now. Would you rather me be listening to Kyoto by Skrillex or Where I Belong by Building 429? Worship music keeps our minds on Our Creator and keeps our mind from sinful, profane songs.

2. You think God didn't give us permission to use instruments?!? I don't ever remember Jesus giving us authority to take a vacation either. But do you know why we can do that? In Genisis 1:26 God gave us humans dominion over the whole earth. We were meant to do whatever we want, as long as it was not sin. God never said that using instruments was a sin. Look at the Ten Commandments, why don't you? Or maybe look at what Jesus said "sums up the Law and the Prophets." Instrumets are FINE. In fact, in 1 Samuel 16, Saul is tormented by and evil spirit. Guess how Saul is soothed from this? By David playing the harp (a musical INSTRUMENT!!!!). God granted healing through the worship of Him through instruments. Soooooo they are obviously fine, in fact good, to use.

Secondly, I must address Building 429. Amazing job. I love your music. I especially love Where I Belong. It's my favorite song right now. Keep up the good work. You are doing a good thing. You are warriors of the Good and Living God. Happy Easter to you guys.

Thanks for reading,

Awesome New Record!!

So glad that the new record is finally here. These guys are amazing live and as strong as ever. This album shows that B429 is a band you'll be hearing about for a very long time. Keep rocking guys.


Great lyrics, but musically, this sounds like 500 other CD's I have. Not much musical originality here. Same old chords, pop sound, etc. Is it just me or does every band sound the same now? Two guitars, a bass, and a drum set just doesn't do it for me unless there's some complex chord progressions behind it that sound new and different.


Formed: 1999 in Fayetteville, NC

With a name taken from Ephesians 4:29 ("Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up"), Building 429 are committed to music as much as message. Led by vocalist/guitarist Jason Roy, in its early days the band also featured bassist Scotty Beshears, guitarist Paul Bowden, and drummer Michael Anderson. In 2004 the band made an immediate impression on the CCM community, watching its debut EP, Glory Defined, and its title track single hit the...
