Third Day
Alien CD Single



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 3 tracks: 13 minutes, 16 seconds
Street Date: 1997


Third Day's Alien CD Single starts off with the title track, a selection from their upcoming Conspiracy No. 5 sophomore release. Their style has changed quite a bit since their 1996 debut, no longer carrying a prominent southern twang, trading it for a sound powered by electric guitar rhythms and pop/rock sensibilities. "You Are Not Alone" follows, a previously unreleased track, exclusive only to this single. It's unfathomable why it hasn't been placed on a record prior to this recording (or following it). The song encourages the listener that they're not by themselves in their walk with Christ, and musically offers a blend of acoustic and electric guitars.

The final song is a rock remix of "Nothing At All," the lead-off track from their self-titled album. It's really not much different from the original, but this mix bears more of an electric edge and Mac Powell's reading of a portion from James 3 has been removed. So while the single only offers three tracks, they're a wonderful appetizer for what's to come and will surely be a rarity that fans will want to have in their collection.

- Written by John DiBiase, 1997
