I may be a tad biased, as I am also a Canadian, but this is one of the finest "pop" bands I've ever heard. In my view, a song must have a fine melody but, more importantly, it must have lyrics with depth - that speak to the heart. Downhere satisfies both criteria. With three, young and impressionable girls, it matters to us what they listen to. Their lyrics have depth and meaning and affirm our Christian faith (both the joys and the challenges we face). Their music is from the heart and it is wonderful to listen to (our girls, 13, 11 and 7 have every song on this album memorized!). Downhere is leaps and bounds beyond so much of the "fluff" we hear on Christian radio.
This was the first cd from Downhere that I had ever heard. I got it to just check out the band, and because it was a great price, but it has been wonderful! The songs are great, with convicting words that are so true in today's society; the songs have a good variety as well. I would definitely recommend it!
