The Afters approached their sophomore release as if they had nothing to lose — as if they were still undiscovered bandmates serving lattes at Starbucks in Mesquite, Texas. In reality, however, expectations for the foursome following their landmark debut could hardly be higher. Their melodic hit "Beautiful Love" had led them on an impressive run — it was featured on MTV's 8th and Ocean and was one of the most downloaded inspirational tracks in 2006. Combine that with their Best New Artist nod at the Dove Awards, and the band underwent a metamorphosis from unknown to unavoidable. Never Going Back to OK touches on this theme, suggesting that a similar transformation from ordinary to extraordinary is part of each believer's journey. The album, a cross between Switchfoot's The Beautiful Letdown and Sanctus Real's The Face of Love, adds a great depth to the Afters' repertoire with deeply palpable modern rock ballads like "Oceans Wide" and "Summer Again." But the core of the album is a steady dose of radio-ready rock, from the powerful essence of "Keeping Me Alive" to the urgency of "Tonight." Without straying too far from their roots, the Afters distanced themselves from the pack with this record.
I loved the original song and this remix is really cool! It's just one of those songs that sounds great remixed.
okay so i got their new cd like a month ago or something, and i thought it was absolutely amazing. and today i looked on itunes and saw this in the new music section. i thought at first that they were releasing the cd again for some odd reason, but i clicked on it and saw it was a dance remix. now i am not usually a big fan of remixes especially dance remixes, but i really enjoyed this song. i can see this song becoming a huge summer hit.
i have heard this version on the radio, and have been WAITING for iTunes to put it on! Thank you! Get this song, its amazing!
