Style: Worship rock with little twists; compare to Waterdeep, Stellar Kart, Desperation Band
Top tracks: "Just Another Birthday," "Spirit Wind," "So Far to Find You"
It must be extremely hard for any band to break free of a formula that has provided them with so much success. Casting Crowns have made much hay by sticking to the well-trodden road of modern worship music. Quiet beginnings building step by step toward loud rock choruses meant for arms akimbo, head pointed skyward sing-alongs. Mark Hall and Co. do their best to sneak some different flavors into the mix, as on the quiet and moving album closer "So Far to Find You" and the bit of country spice they expend on "Spirit Wind."1
