Newsboys "Born Again" by Kevin Thorson (cmaddict.com) on 2010-07-01 16:36:43
Well here it is, the latest album "Born Again" from Newsboys 2.0 (or post-Furler). For those who might miss Peter Furler as lead, no worries... Tait ‘shines’ as Newsboys frontman. We've all heard the #1 single "Born Again" and agreed that this is gonna be good... well it is.
Michael Tait steps up to the plate, writing, singing and adding his own style to the album while still keeping the obvious Newsboys feel. You can hear his influence in songs like "Way Beyond Myself", "Impossible", & "On Your Knees". Tait's powerful vocals are clear in the worship track "Mighty to Save"
Fanatic Newsboys-ers are going to love "One Shot", "When The Boys Light Up", & "Miracles" with their distinctly quirky sound and catchy lyrics. But one of the best blends of the two is "Escape" co-written by Steve Taylor himself.
And how can you not love it... Newsboys, Tait, and KJ-52 finish off the album with none other than the classic we all hold dear, "Jesus Freak". A nice touch and alot of fun to listen to.
Overall, Newsboys "Born Again" delivers. This is the 15th studio project from the GRAMMY®-nominated and Dove Award-winning band. With more than 6.5 million units sold, five Gold albums and 26 #1 hits, we can expect many more with Tait on board.

Sometimes it’s hard to discern God's voice above the noise in our head and around us. The Bible encourages us to keep listening and keeping trying, because like anything else, we are trained by practice.
