Stars Go Dim "Stars Go Dim"

Stars Go Dim has seen massive changes through the years. Originally founded by a couple of members of the hard rock band Pillar, it now only has original band member and lead vocalist Chris Cleveland. Recently, Stars Go Dim released their first full-length debut and while there are some promising musical moments here, it does feel a little too safe and catered to CCM radio.

The album starts off with an old hymn "Doxology." The band does a good cover of the song but it does seem to stretch a little too long at almost 5 minutes. The next two tracks "Alive in You" and "You Are Loved" are some of the best on the record. "You Are Loved" is a fantastic pop anthem, and current radio hit about being yourself, and that, no matter what, there is someone that loves you. It’s a great message and a pretty catchy song.

Some other highlights include "24/7" and "Where You Are." Both of these songs have great lyrical messages and are different musically than the rest of the album. "24/7" really focuses on the acoustic guitar and "Where Are You" on beats and loops. They, and the other tracks I mentioned, give a fresh sound that stands above the rest of the record.

The rest of the record is very similar lyrically and musically that each song starts to blend in a little too much. While a decent debut from a talented band, I would have liked to see more diversity in sound and tone. Nevertheless, as the band matures and finds their own sound I will be eager again to see where they land next.
