Tree63
The Answer To The Question



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 10 tracks: 33 minutes, 00 seconds
Street Date: March 9, 2004


Tree63 has undergone some major changes since the release of The Life and Times of Absolute Truth in 2002. Bass player Martin Engle and drummer Darryl Swart left the band in 2003, leaving John Ellis as the only original member. On the Tree63 website, John has stated that Tree63 is a "whole new band." Those words always strike fear into the hearts of every fan.

Rest assured Tree63 fans, The Answer to the Question is Tree63's strongest album to date. From the opening notes of the anthem "King," it's clear that Tree63 have returned to their roots (pun intended). The Answer to the Question carries a slightly more aggressive sound than The Life and Times..., the production is polished to perfection, and John Ellis's songwriting and musicianship has matured greatly.

Following "King" is the first radio single from The Answer..., a cover of Matt Redman's song "Blessed Be Your Name." Tree63's version is great, and fits well on the album, however it seems to lack the passion Redman's version delivers. "You Only" is another anthem that – like "King" – will leave you wishing your worship leader's vocal range was as broad and strong as Ellis's. The title track "The Answer to the Question" is the highlight of record. Other highlights include "Over & Over" and the "Let Your Day Begin."

The Answer to the Question combines the best elements of Tree63's self-titled release and The Life and Times to deliver an amazing worship album that should be a part of everyone's modern worship collection.
