Though Derek Webb may be most immediately recognized as a former member of Caedmons Call, hes made exceptional strides as a solo artist thus far. After he gained momentum for his latest studio CD by releasing the live DVD How to Kill and Be Killed, the anticipation finally culminated with Mockingbird. And like his critically acclaimed past, brimming with brooding lyrics and folk-flavored intimacy, this disc creatively unveils the latest chapter in Webbs complex journal entries.
My Enemies Are Men Like Me (complete with a spoken word clip from Martin Luther King, Jr.) is among one of the many compelling expositions tracing how equality, justice and non-violence are essential in todays society. The piano ballad In God We Trust further alludes to Webbs social and political ruminations, assessing how the Lords hand has been with us throughout each stroke of history. The acoustic ease of A King a Kingdom is riddled with attention-grabbing metaphors and speaks about having allegiance to our Heavenly Father before any manmade institution.
On a lighter note, Mockingbird scoots with jangly guitars and Webbs signature vocals, hearkening back to his days in Caedmons Call. Zeros Ones mixes coffeehouse comfort with piano pop, strewn with powerful poetry only a tunesmith of this caliber could deliver. Please, Before I Go provides a haunting amalgamation of gentle guitars, emotive violins and even a xylophone, while the glorious finale Love Is Not Against the Law develops a slightly jazz flourish. As the disc fades out with a message of practical outreach, Webb further settles into his role as the Bob Dylan of Christian musicwho only gets better with age.

Virginia Lutz5 Stars Out Of 5March 8, 2008Virginia LutzInteresting and thought-provoking CD. I heard Derek Webb on a radio interview and was impressed with his speech, devotion to Christ, and desire to bring reality to the world through his music - well done on all counts. A good addition to a collection - I recommend this one.
Sean5 Stars Out Of 5November 25, 2006SeanGreat sounding, very down to earth guitar music as well as the lyrics. Though I would like to know what some of his songs are about as one or two of them are bit tricky to understand. Otherwise great music! You won't be dissapointed!
