The latest album from the Nashville Tribute Band focuses on Jesus Christ by way of fourteen new songs composed as a tribute to the Savior. Each song presents a unique perspective on Christ through the eyes of those who walked and talked with Him, including John the Baptist, a blind man on the street, the woman taken adultery, the soldier and the thief at the Crucifixion, and the Apostle Peter. Several songs are written to be stand-alone numbers that focus on the big picture of Christ's ministry, and other songs are tender portrayals from unique individual perspectives.
I bought it when it first came out. That was almost a year ago, and I still listen to it almost daily. There is such a unique blend of songs on this album. The production is very well done. These are the stories you know told in a perspective you've never heard before. There isn't a song on this album I don't enjoy. Some of my favorite are, "What Manner of Man Is This?" (such a cool vibe to this song), "John's Song" (very fun and upbeat), "Apostles" (love the deep voice) and "Soldier and the Thief" (very emotional). I definitely recommend buying this album. You won't regret it.
I play this CD several times each day - just can't get enough of it. The music says it all.
A fantastic mix of artists, unique and inspiring songs, and superb production makes this newest release by the Nashville Tribute Band another winner! I love listening to the opening track, "He Is Coming" as its crescendo seems to mirror the actual coming of our Lord. Other favorites include "John's Song," "What Manner of Man is This? (gotta love the almost monotone speak-singing intro), "Blind," "He Is Risen," and "When the Son of Man (Comes Again)." It's not a mix of hymns, but give it a try and you will find that these melodies and words stick with you and inspire you!
I have all of Nashville Tribute Band's other albums and love them! When I downloaded this album, I had to listen to it immediately. The songs are written in the perspectives of those who were in contact with the Savior. Very touching music performed by the very best talent including Due West, David Archuleta, Katherine Nelson, SheDaisy, and others! I haven't been able to stop listening to these uplifting songs, especially at a time when there is so much garbage out there. This is something I can listen to with my son and feel good about. I hope NTB can continue to write and perform their music!
