Eleventyseven "Good Spells EP" by David Bunce (cmaddict.com) on 2013-10-01 14:37:10
I first heard of this group, Eleventyseven, from their Christmas album from December of 2012 “Regifted” and greatly enjoyed their overall sound that was just plain fun! I was greatly appreciative of this most recent work by Eleventyseven. It is a very creative re-invention of classic hymns.
The words of these songs written many, many years ago are so powerful and I’m glad to see them being used with a new twist. The group brings their electro-pop twist to create memorable, enjoyable music. With great hymns covered such as “It Is Well” and “I Surrender All” the bar was set high for making the music true to Eleventyseven’s trademark electronic style, while maintaining the awe-inspiring sound these songs have instilled for so many years.
Eleventyseven’s sound is at times reminiscent of Owl City, and once or twice I felt that the vocals which shined brightly at times, were somewhat muffled by occasional over-use of synthetic “keyboard-ization”. However, it didn’t leave distaste for this great addition to their music. Overall I enjoyed this album and would love to hear more hymns added in this genre!

Some days we can barely hear it. Other days it drives us to our knees. But it’s always there; that persistent tug in our souls. Whether we trudge through our days or chase the stars of fame and fortune, we can’t drown out the cry that sounds silently in the pit of our being, jarring us with its urgency and moving us with its tears.
