Today alternative rock group Silverline released their highly anticipated album "Lights Out". This is the band's first album since signing with label Dream Records. I have followed the group for several years now and have really enjoyed their indie records so I was no doubt excited to hear they were finally signed. But occasionally when a group gets a record deal their music changes to fit the label. Not in this case however. The Silverline style and feel remains. If anything their sound has matured.

"Lights Out" showcases Silverline's need for straight up rock. Every song from end to end is infused with brilliant rock chords and upbeat drum tracks. "Lights Out" has a very consistent sound throughout and plays well when listened to as a whole.

Several tracks that really caught my attention were "Never Looking Back", "Be Still", and the standout "War". The lyrics on "Never Looking Back" are what you need to hear when one focuses too much on past mistakes. It's the message that God's grace can move you forward. "Be Still" is the reassurance that we don't need to worry but that God controls everything in our lives down to every detail. The distortion laden "War" is one of my favorite tracks on "Lights Out". This heavy rock track is a good reminder that our battles with sin and Satan are real and should be taken very seriously. "This is war/This is real".

"Lights Out" is an excellent continuation of a great list of releases from Silverline. If you're a long time follower of them then you'll enjoy the consistency of this project. And if you're a new listener then you'll hear what you've been missing... that "Lights Out" is one of the best rock albums out there.
