Hailing from Pennsylvania and 1340 Records comes The North Sixty. Named after a road that led out of town to "unchartered territory," it seems like a fitting name for these fellows. Fronted by acoustic guitar clad Jim McDonald, truly showing his emotions in his lyrics, welcome For A Moment I Saw Clearly.
Heading off the pack is "Story Of You and I," a brisk acoustic rock song that leads right into the strong lyrics I heard so much about while "Empty" brings a worship-filled tune with some nice pop gang backing vocals. "Plague of Flies" a highlight both musically as well as lyrically states "There's a pile of dust between my hands now. I feel it slipping through my skin. If I hold on to what I never wanted anyway, Do I ever look at what's within. Sometimes the things I have get in the way of the things I want. Everything I want is You. There's a pile of bones here in my closet. I've been living around them now for years."
This is an all-around good album. But let's be honest, don't we all sometimes judge a book by its cover. The art for this record made me believe I was about to listen to an H.R. Pufnstuf soundtrack. This totally contradicts the emotion he displays in his music and disappointed me greatly. But that being said, if you judge this book by its content, then you should be delightfully surprised. It is in times of pain that we really know what it is that we're worshipping. For someone looking for worship music with an edge, here's your chance to see clearly.- Review date: 2/2/02, written by Blake Garris
