The End Is Not The End

Release Date: September 23, 2008

Sometimes I wonder if an artist can recognize that they're making important music while in the middle of creating it. Sure, you're tackling some heavy subjects when taking on a concept like World War II, but did these Ohio boys have any clue that they were making an album far bigger than simply the follow-up to Say No More? 2008's The End is Not the End is a once-in-a-lifetime masterwork, the type of record that few artists get the chance to make or have the ability to make, perfecting the potential of previous albums while funneling the fullness of the band's strengths into tightly constructed pop-rock songs that were as capable of earning endless five-star accolades as they were of becoming Christian rock radio staples. Covering topics ranging from Christianity and communism to war and romance, this album will make you cry ("By Your Side"), laugh ("If"), chant ("Code Name: Raven"), or drop your jaw in sheer amazement of what this band accomplished ("In the Valley of the Dying Sun"). Featuring a classic rock ethos and some of the best vocal performances and harmonies ever put to tape in the genre, The End is Not the End is a landmark achievement that checks every box of great art and great entertainment.

The End is Not the End is a perfect pop-rock album!
