Third Day's first record with Brad Avery (Lead Guitar) shows the beginnings of what is arguably Christian music's biggest rock band. The few weak points of the band's self-titled debut begin with Mac Powell's voice and its undeveloped delivery. Powell's vocals even feel a little immature on tracks like "Thief" and "Consuming Fire." The lyrics on this album are some of Third day's most straightforward lyrics ever.
The album kicks off with the rocker "Nothin At All," which asks the familiar question, "if you can't say anything good don't say nothing at all." During this song, Mac reads a passage from James 3 about the dangers of the tongue. "Forever" follows, talking about how God's love never changes. "Mama" brings forth images of the story of the prodigal son. The ever famous "Love Song," one of the definete highlights on Third Day, is sung through Christ's eyes on His road to the cross.
The rest of the album similarly follows with Third Day's signature southern rock. At times a little more country influences are noticable than on their later projects. Some other highlights are the famous "Consuming Fire," the worshipful "Praise Song," and the country-flavored "Livin' For Jesus." In conclusion, this is a must have for any Third Day fan. If you are checking into them for the first time, I would recommend one of the newer projects such as Wire.JFH Reader Review: Review date: 1/16/05, written by Carl Laamanen for Jesusfreakhideout.com
