iTunes Review

The Dove Award-winning Christian combo achieves an austere, emotionally resonant grandeur in these tracks, avoiding artifice or bombast in favor of a simple message of compassion. The same uplifting tone present in the band’s breakthrough hit “By Your Side” is heard throughout this album, expressed in intimate, strikingly poetic terms. “Healing Begins,” “On and On,” “Strong Enough to Save” and similar tunes frame Mike Donehey's yearning vocals with atmospheric tracks built around stately pianos, sparse guitars and tastefully-applied strings. Tenth Avenue North returns to the themes of shame and forgiveness again and again, touching upon the snares of materialism (“All the Pretty Things,” “Empty My Hands”) and self-obsession (“House of Mirrors”) along the way. “Oh My Dear” is especially moving in its depiction of a relationship tested by a heart-wrenching secret. Buoyant tracks like “Hearts Safe (A Better Way)” and “You Are More” underscore the hopeful content of the lyrics.

It was about a year ago when I came across this band. I had been going through a very rough point in my life and it seemed like there was no hope. It was only then that God blessed me with friends when that was all I ever wanted. They introduced me to this band and they instantly became my favorite out there. Not only are their songs solid but their hearts are as well. If I had not heard Hold My Heart for the first time I have no idea where I might be. They have inspired me to become involved in worship ministry somehow. I have also left a message on the top of every one of their singles. I feel having people know your story is good, and helps them in knowing that God's power is real. He pulled a 180 in my life and he can do the same for you!!! God Bless!! Congrats Tenth Avenue North, Your songs have suceeded in reaching people.

Awesome Album!

Tenth ave has been such an inspiration to me, and they truly desire to pursue Christ. The whole album is awesome, but "you are more" and "any other way" are unbelievable!
