David Crowder Band

Any DCB fans here? If you're not...well, you should should be. Their new cd 'A Collision' just came out yesterday and is quite the masterpiece (it is number 2 at itunes and will takeover the number one spot by the end of the week).

I haven't read his book, but will definitely check it out.

the new cd is great!!! I preordered it through the DC*B website and it came with a bonus dvd with four demos (audio files) and the behind the scenes video recording of the song 'i saw the Light,' which is (are you sitting down???) a bluegrass hoedown tune. It is worth the price of the cd alone. I really dig the extra stuff they include too - like the interludes, etc.. If you check out the liner notes - read them carefully, you will find a link to a bonus mp3 as well, with a quiz for more stuff.....they are so cool, what other band does this???? Well, I guess we did get the bonus track 'Mercy' from "the boys".
Sorry for the rambling...Bean

Picked up the latest cd last night, and after one listen, I'm pretty stunned.

Lots of similarities to Sufjan Stevens' Illinoise but not quite on that level, with the entire album flowing together, demanding to be heard and responded to as a whole; the track listing being long, wordy, and more similar to a novel or play, not a rock album... Really, the album feels like it has an accompanying visual aspect. It feels like I only got half the art by hearing it.

Not to elevate it to genius status or imply something "supernatural" going on, but I think the term "visionary" would apply to it. This album has been painstakingly and purposefully assembled as far as themes, direction, etc. That's obvious after just one listen. I'm scared of how much thought probably went into making this record. However, my first impression is that the lyrics may not be as strong as some of his previous work. And while the music is grand, very produced, and ambitious, I fear the novelty of banjos, etc., may wear off after repeated listens. His music really shook me on Can You Hear Us. But David set the bar high, so that's not saying it's bad.

Overall though, I'm impressed and am hungry to listen to it again. Dave is a rare talent and has an artistic mind that is so far out of the CCM norm/box? Thank God for him.
