Caedmon's Call
40 Acres



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 11 tracks: 44 minutes, 41 seconds
Street Date: April 12, 1999


READER RATING:   


If you are who is trying out Christian music for the first time, or if you enjoy any kind of music, the best way that I can describe Caedmon's Call's 40 Acres is that they are a mellower version of Barenaked Ladies. I really enjoyed the instrumentation on this record, especially what I believe to be a 'leslie' in songs like "Climb-on."

The first selection, "There You Go," was a good choice to put as a lead-off song. The beat is catchy and held my interest. I didn't like the next song, though, because it had too much of a country feel, but if you're a fan of the more southern-leaning sound, it might be right up your alley.

The songs I really enjoyed here are "Shifting Sand," "Table For Two," "Somewhere North," and "Petrified Heart." "Petrified Heart" also reminds me of a Third Day type of song (this is a good thing... I like Third Day very much), but it had sort of an Irish twist to it.

All in all, 40 Acres has been much needed for the trials that I have been going through in recent weeks, and I recommend it to anyone else feeling the pressures of the end of the semester (or school year, or just everyday life!). God is so good; just cast your cares upon Him, and watch what He does with them!

JFH Staff's Additional 2 Cents


    40 Acres is required listening on Texas road trips. Relationally focused and lyrically evocative, courtesy of Aaron Tate and Derek Webb, the whole album is a masterclass in arresting folk music. "Faith My Eyes," "Shifting Sand," "Table for Two," "Somewhere North," and the title track are my favorites. For my money, they never did it better. This is one of my favorite records of all time. - 2/3/24, Josh Balogh of Jesusfreakhideout.com
