Customer Reviews

Fantastic Debut Album!

Welcome to the Dynamic Show Ever Being Gave. This is Jacob’s Trouble’s first album! (other than a 5 track EP released independently. Those are the first 5 tracks on the album: “Diggin Up Bones”) The album features incredible songwriting and lead vocals from Jerry Davison along with the help of the rest of the band and their producer Terry Taylor. The musicianship of this album is phenomenal! Jerry Davison produces a solid and energetic performance on the drums. Mark Blackburn captures the mood and feel of the album with his excellent guitar playing. Steve Atwell comes up with a solid and genius bass-line for every song! If you are a Beatles, Monkees, or U2 fan, Christian or not.. you will love this album! I now present to you my song by song review:

1. Wind and Wave 9/10: One of the bands most enduring and popular songs, Wind and Wave is a catchy upbeat tune about the Christian tendencies to doubt their salvation and a daily struggle to believe. This song offers encouragement to the believer and reminds them that God will “Never leave you, Nor forsake you.”

2. Tell Me what You See 8/10: Track 2 is a cover of an obscure Beatles song and JT does a fantastic job putting a new spin on it! In addition to the more up-tempo approach to the music, It also offers a new perspective on the lyrics of the song: the vocalist taking the view point of God asking and begging us to put our trust in and have a relationship with Him!

3. She Smiles At the Future 9/10: This is a lovely song written by the lead singer to his wife. The instrumentation on this love song is beautiful and simple, so much that it could have been right off a Beatles album. The lyrics are even more beautiful than the music and largely taken from Psalm 31, a beautiful passage in scripture about a Godly wife.

4. Church of Do-What-You-Want-To 10/10: This upbeat and overall just-plain-fun feel of this track works well with the satirical lyrics. The song is written in response to the growing acceptance of false doctrine in mainstream church. The lyrics, meant to be taken sarcastically, help us remember that we should always be careful who the focus of our lives are: Us? Or Christ? If the answer is us then we are in danger of becoming the church that this song warns us about. This is one of my favorite tracks on the album, musically very catchy, Especially the guitar riff now the end.

5. Awfully Familiar 10/10: A really brilliant song musically and lyrically. The music has that sort of psychedelic vibe you might hear on the Beatles’ ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ and JT, in my opinion, accomplishes just as well as the Beatles ever did. From the dreamy background vocals, to the sound effects, to the trippy E-bow part, to the coronet part, this fantastic song about prophesy is one of the album’s best.

6. Waiting for the Son 10/10: The influence of the Beatles and the Monkees have been evident up to this point. But on this track you can hear the U2 vibe make a big appearance that would influence the band’s genius songwriting more and more in the coming albums. Not to say that this song is a U2 rip off, far from it! There is no escaping the fact that JT has created a masterpiece with this song. From the soft opening to the epic ending, this song presents dynamic, creativity and passion rarely matched in the Christian music of today.

7. Door Into Summer 8/10: A great cover of a fantastic, yet often ignored, Monkees tune. The lead vocals of Mark Blackburn fit this song perfectly. The message here is clear: What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and loose his soul?

8. If You Believe: 7/10: Differing greatly from the original version heard on JT’s collection of rarities, “Diggin Up Bones”, this song features a slower tempo and more emphases on lyrics than the original version. This is a good song about accepting the offer of love that Christ is offering us… I still prefer the original version on “Diggin Up Bones”

9. Million Miles: 7/10: A catchy upbeat song that expresses a love that is willing to go the distance for it’s object. The band is really tight and together here resulting in one of the most jammin’ songs on the album.

10. All For You 7/10: Featuring the awesome vocal talents and great song writing skills of Mark Blackburn! The slide guitar and contemplative lyrics really remind me of George Harrison.

11. Psalms 151 9/10: Psalm 151 is a beautiful and humble song of thanks to God. The acoustic vibe is really cool on this track and lends itself well to the vocals. A perfect album closer.

Door Into Summer (album) 9/10
This is a great album filled with some of the band’s best work. Having said that, there next three albums are even better. I STRONGLY encourage you to purchase this entire album. However if you REALLY can’t do that… here are my top 5 suggestions for first time Listeners:

Wind and Wave
She Smiles
Church of Do-What-You-Want-To
Awfully Familiar
Waiting for the Sun
