Less than a year since David Crowder Band's hit release A Collision (3+4 = 7) comes their follow up EP, B Collision (The Eschatology of Bluegrass). Between 2003's Illuminate and last year's A Collision, David Crowder Band offered fans The Lime CD - a live EP – and the experimental Sunsets and Sushi. B Collision is a collection of both stripped back versions of songs from A Collision, live songs featuring special guests, and even a couple of new songs.
"I've Had Enough" sets the tone for the start of the EP. The stripped down feel gives the studio songs a raw feeling and draws even more attention to Crowder's powerful lyrics. "Beautiful Collision" and "Wholly Yours" are beautifully crafted acoustic B Variants, and a full-length version of "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" is a special treat.
While none of these songs are particularly bluegrass, the album begins the transition with David Crowder's semi-electric rendition of "I Can Hear the Angels Singing." At the end of the song, the EP transitions into live mode for " Be Lifted," with special guests Shane and Shane and Robbie Seay Band joining in the bluegrass fun for the last half of the song, as well as for the album closer "I Saw the Light."
Overall, B Collision is a fitting EP to follow A Collision. Unlike previous David Crowder Band EPs, you don't need to own A Collision or any of his previous work to appreciate the album. The songs included are powerful enough that it stands on its own. But fans of David Crowder's A Collision will find B Collision to be a must-have special treat.- Review date: 6/24/06, written by David Taylor
