Hey, hey, hey, it's the return of that Christian Punk/Ska band, The Dingees!
This time the Dingees are bringing it to you in their third album titled
The Crucial Conspiracy with the same sound that has grown on all us fans.
Despite the fact that the vocals could use some work, this album was
If you were looking for a good quality mix, I'm afraid you won't find it on
this album, sorry! But what The Dingees lack in vocals, they certainly make
up for it in witness. Let us all remember the words of Five Iron
Frenzy's Quantity is Job 1. I don't know about you, but I've been a Dingees
fan for about a year now, my personal favorite will always be the first
album, but this album totally kicks that albums' butt when it comes to the
measure behind the means. The Dingees aren't ashamed of how they sound or
who they are because they know that they are sheltered under the Lord's wings, so
who cares how they sound?
The songs: there are 13 tracks on The Crucial Consiracy. Sorry, no hidden
tracks that I found. Personal favorites of mine are the first 5 songs because
they are all upbeat and happy and that's all the time I can spare when I get
up in the morning. I really can't quote anything for you
from the album, cause I only do that when I have the lyrics and there weren't
any lyrics that went along with this promo CD. None of the tracks are offensive,
and the only ones that
don't talk about God are the ones that they use to discuss real life problems
If you are a longstanding fan of The Dingees, then this album is for you. If
you're not a fan of The Dingees but you wanna try them out to see what they're
like, then go ahead and pick this album up, borrow it from a friend, etc.
All in all, if you aren't pleased with the vocals,
I am sure you will be pleased with the message. If you can't understand the
words then please read along with the lyrics to find out what they are trying
to say. I am sure that any believer will find The Crucial Conspiracy uplifting.
