Style: Modern melodic rock; compare to Stone Sour, Shinedown, Puddle of Mudd
Top Tracks: "Shine Among the Shadow," "That Song," "The Whole World Over"
Former Mars Hill singer-guitarist Jack Marques comes into his own on this solo debut, a hook-filled, fret-busting collection of hard rock tunes served on a bedrock of faith. The title track features throaty vocals and pounding guitar and drums, with a touch of dynamics courtesy of King's X guitarist Ty Tabor. Other cuts like "Miracle" and "The Party" sport a ragged, grunge-rock edge. Shadow also has its softer moments. "That Song" (featuring Stryper bassist Tim Gaines) showcases Marques' wooing voice over a piano-based power ballad, while "Movin' On" offers wistful acoustic guitar.1
