House of Heroes "Colors" by Jon Ownbey (CMADDICT ) on 2016-06-04 08:19:43
House of Heroes releases their 6th album Colors under the BadChristian Music Label. The album features 13 songs that feel a little disconnected at times without a connecting theme. The varied tempo and styles between tracks that would usually keep a listener involved quickly left me skipping tracks and only connecting with a few songs.
The album showcases a wide range of sounds, with music that is solid and a great sound. Unfortunately, the listener is distracted by the lyrics at times and prevented from enjoying the whole experience.
The album lyrics are a little on the edge at times with an inferred sh*t used during the bridge of Colors Run. There is no underlying Christian message and the band has never professed to be a Christian group but ask the listener to decide. The vocals are strong but are washed out at times on some of the faster paced tracks.
As a whole, this is a definite pass over. There are a few noteworthy tracks such as We Make Our Stars and 12 Get Away, but it’s not enough to carry the entire album. While I’ve not heard any other albums by House of Heroes I can say it would be stretch to call this album Christian. With so many other great groups out there I would leave this on the store shelf.
