Editors’ Notes

The smart, bittersweet folk/pop of Caedmon’s Call is in fine form on Raising Up the Dead. With founding member Derek Webb back in the fold, the veteran Texas-bred combo offers a batch of songs informed by their faith, if not always explicitly Christian in content. Webb displays a touch of the edginess found in his recent solo work in “Family” (a plea for inclusiveness with electronica overtones) and “God’s Hometown” (a moody waltz depicting the wages of unhealthy love). Danielle Young steps out as lead vocalist on the buoyant character sketch “She” and the yearning “Come With Me.” The band’s underlying folksiness comes through on the genteel, fiddle-accented “I Need a Builder” and the bruised-yet-hopeful “Streets of Gold.” Throughout, Cademon’s Call balances a sense of social conscience (heard in “Sometimes a Beggar”) with a celebratory spirit of personal revival (captured most powerfully in “Free”). They could easily get by with smoother, more comforting songs than these. That they choose not to do so is a measure of their artistic integrity.

Customer Reviews

Welcome Back Caedmon's Call!

All 12 songs on "Raising Up The Dead" were written by the original band members, with 6 of the new songs being written and sung by Danielle Young. If like me, you've always wanted more from Danielle, this album is totally for you. "Miss You" is hauntingly beautiful and is sung by one of the most underrated female vocalists in Christian music in my opinion. "Come With Me" reminds me of "Shifting Sand" and "Time Inside Out" reminds me of "Say Anything" by Aimee Mann. Closing song "Free" is a stand-out ballad. "Family" is written and sung by Derek Webb, one of my first loves in Christian music, and reminds me of classic Caedmon's from 1997-2000 like "Bus Driver," "Table For Two" and "Thankful." Welcome back Caedmon's Call, I've "missed you" greatly!


So excited about this! I didn't even know this was getting released today. Looking forward to listening to this more fully!

I actually really like it

I've always loved Caedmon's Call because their music and lyrics aren't always what you hear on contemporary radio anymore. I like SOME praise & worship, but I LOVE when when the Gospel and Life in general are put to music. CC does that here. If y'all were expecting music and lyrics like what is on In the Company Of Angels, it's not really like that. It's music and lyrics that are above mediocre. I'm tired of hearing CCM and P&W. This is refreshing and much easier on the ears. Plus, I honestly think Rich Mullins was smiling from above while CC wrote and recorded this album. More important, I think God would want this album to be out there for all to hear for a reason. He has a plan. He always does. Overall, great album, great music, great lyrics, and great vocals. Well done.

CCM band Caedmon's Call fuse folk-rock with adult alternative rock influences.

The group originally included Aaron Tate, who left the band shortly after its formation, but he continued to write songs with Young. After...
