Album Review

Coming off the heels of a stellar debut release, Kutless releases its sophomore disc Sea of Faces. Produced by Aaron Sprinkle, Sea of Faces is the type of disc to make a band's career. The discs rockers, like "Not What You See" and "Treason," are studio spit-shined. Sprinkles production touches throughout give the opus the legs to stride to the next level. While the bandmembers seem completely at ease with the heavier cuts, they really shine on the mid-tempo and slow tunes. The title track utilizes piano and acoustic guitars to deliver a poignant cut with lyrics to match. "Perspectives" again finds the band cutting back during the verse while the chorus pinnacles into a rock nugget. When the band utilizes both electric and acoustic guitars, the songs really seem to come to life. Check out the sincerity on "All the Words" or the introspection on "It's Like Me." Sea of Faces is a rock masterpiece. Kutless has completely delivered the goods while retaining the charm possessed on its debut disc. This opus is well-written, well-presented, and musically rich throughout.

Classic

This is such a good album. Sea of Faces is a great song, but All Alone, Passion, and All The Words are some of my favorites. This is a great album with a good sound. It's classic Kutless.

"Sea of Faces" is Not Lost in the Crowd

I'm a big fan of Kutless and have been for a while. After all, they are based in Portland! While so many are focused on "keeping Portland weird", this rock/worship group shines for Jesus and has for years been committed to reaching out to the lost and broken through music. "Sea of Faces", their sophomore project from 2004, is a great example.

The band touches on numerous faith-based themes on this CD. The title track proclaims God's unfailing love for us in spite of our mistakes, "Not What You See" explores the challenge of being a "servant to all", and I love "Troubled Heart" because of its powerful message to anyone dealing with guilt or depression. The intense, searing rock riffs on "Treason" help it to stand out, and really, this is just a very hardcore rock album. (For those who don't like fellow Christian rock/metal band Demon Hunter, don't listen to "Let You In" if you don't want to hear lead singer Ryan Clark scream his lungs out in a fashion that has to be just brutal on his vocal chords.) There is softer stuff, too, such as "Perspectives" and "All of the Words", the latter also being featured on the band's hit 2005 release "Strong Tower".

In short, "Sea of Faces" is one of the band's finest albums and definitely a gem from Kutless. As much as I miss the days of their aggressive hard rock riffs and pounding drums, I continue to be a fan of this group and continue to support them as they keep charging for Jesus. All told, two thumbs way up!
