Long time Christian rock veterans Thousand Foot Krutch are back with their second independent album, Oxygen: Inhale. Much in the spirit of past work, this new album is packed with solid guitars, smooth vocals, and driving beats.

This album will feel comfortable to long-time Thousand Foot Krutch fans, but Oxygen: Inhale also brings in a few new elements. Several tracks nod to a bluesy feel, while others demonstrate lead vocalist Trevor McNevan’s stratospheric range (“Light Up” and “Glow”). The song “Untraveled Road” has a cool clapping pattern on the off beats.

Much of the focus is on repetition. Many tracks repeat choruses or bridges multiple times before closing out the song, a trend not as common to rock. Mild strings are sprinkled into a few tracks. Additionally, TFK’s poetic and occasionally ambiguous lyrical style is present throughout.

“Born this Way,” the first radio single, claims individuality, creativity, and being brave and secure in your beliefs. The verses point to TFK’s rap and hip hop roots, but also demonstrate McNevan’s incredibly flexible vocal abilities. “In My Room” is the most overtly Christian song on the album and flows like a letter. The simplistic plea of the song impacted me because it humbly asks God meet in a safe, intimate place. The person also wonders if it is a “good time” to talk. I have often wondered why a great and big God would listen to me when there are much better things He has to do – but yet, He does listen, and the triumphant close of this song acknowledges this.

Oxygen: Inhale is another solid work from long time rock powerhouse Thousand Foot Krutch. The 10-track album delves into themes of activism, addiction, love, and faith through TFK’s signature style.

Slightly Obsessed #195: What Is the Apocalypse?

The Long Range Weather Forecast published by The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2017 accurately predicted a bitter winter last year, which dumped so much snow on the country that it inspired the Snowpocalypse festival in Milwaukee, Snowpocalypse survivor badges in Boise, and its own Twitter hashtag #snowmageddon. In keeping with our national compulsion to turn every personal victory or trial into a meme, we can now add -mageddon or -pocalypse to a catastrophe for an over-the-top event to post on our favorite social media outlet.
