iTunes Review

This South Carolina-bred foursome retains the rootsy qualities it displayed on earlier releases while adding a bolder, more accessibly sonic edge here. The result is a fresh take on Southern rock, underscoring a largely acoustic instrumental approach with aggressive rhythms and strategic dashes of electric guitar. Bear Rinehart proves himself a wailing lead vocalist in the classic Ray Charles/Joe Cocker mode, diving into tracks like the stomp-driven “Lay ‘Em Down” and the expansive “These Hard Times” with a desperate fervor. “Stones Under Rushing Water” (a wistful ballad featuring Nickel Creek’s Sara Watkins) and “Garden” display Bear’s ability to project innate strength with an almost tremulous delivery. Though much of The Outsiders has a serious tone, there’s a playful spirit in the carefree “Girl Named Tennessee” and the slinky “Prisoner.” With “Let Us Love,” Needtobreathe delivers a soaring message of redemption. All told a nearly flawless effort, at once heroic and very human at its core.

Customer Reviews

Needtobreathe shows no sign of stopping!

With now their third album under their belt, the band has proven that they are force to be reckoned with in the Christian and Rock Music scene. They have a unique southern sound, with just enough arena rock to keep a wide appeal. "The Outsiders" is a great installment in their music library and possibly their best, yet! Best tracks- The Outsiders, Lay 'Em Down, What You've Done To Me, Hurricane, Won't Turn Back, Garden, and Let Us Love.

whoa, is this the same needtobreathe, whatever, sounds good anyway

It's funny how this band has progressively become more and more southern. It didn't seem too long ago when this band was releasing singles like Shine on and You are Here. Oh, well, even if their next album ends up being country, I'm all ears as long as they keep producing great music.

Another Great Album

NTB has exceeded expectations as they have taken their songwriting to a new level. With each album, their musicianship develops into seasoned artistry. Beautiful album!
