We Recommend - Lucerin Blue, 'Tales of the Knife'

Lucerin Blue was somewhat overlooked back when they released Tales of the Knife.  It's a very solid rock album, and it did go over fairly well, but a lot of Christian rock fans I know haven't really heard of the band.  After this release, they recorded a few more demos poised for a follow-up release, but broke up soon thereafter.  But if you can find a copy of Tales of the Knife anywhere, you would do well to buy it and jam out to it.  The passionate vocals tend to bring about comparisons to the Deftones and maybe even a more watered-down Project 86, and the instruments are very tightly played.  There's not much when it comes to bold faith in the lyrics (save for the "I realize I can't live less the love of God" in "Superstar"), but he sings with conviction for whatever he sings about.  Again, if you find this album somewhere to buy, pick it up.  Fans of solid, sonic rock songs will definitely enjoy this. - Scott
