Kevin Max "Broken Temples" by Jon Ownbey (cmaddict.com) on 2015-04-09 13:25:25
Kevin Max continues his solo career with his newest release Broken Temples. I loved the album's retro feel of early mainstream Christian rock, and after giving this album a few spins I felt like I had stepped back into the '90's, synthesizer included.
Lyrically, this album is well rounded and flows well, even with the repetitive chorus lines throughout the album. Kevin Max effectively directs the listener to the concept of God while not being overpowering. The overall feel of the album is not too upbeat and lends credibility to the message.
Overall, Broken Temples is well crafted and can completely stand on its own. Even though I loved the retro feel, I think that ultimately it hurts this album, drawing listeners back to days of DC Talk and Audio Adrenaline. These fans will want to pick this one up for their collection.

As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
