Speed of Life
The Speed Of Life is a refreshing mix of original and cover material arranged in a way that flows into a musical painting of your life in Christ. Music styles range from the Southern California country styles of the 70's to the smooth jazz sounds of today with a few light rock tunes in the mix. Content is key, this vocal band does not sing a song just to be singing, all 14 songs have such a great message that you want to hear it all. Right smack dab in the middle of the CD is a wonderful instrumental tune with read along words. You read the words while the music is playing, it's amazing how your imagination automatically kicks in. You find yourself having a hard time picking a favorite. The whole album was recorded to give a live performance feel. LOM travels throughout the country and wanted their first recording to sound just like the concerts. They have pulled it off. All four members sing lead and backup vocals, giving the listener a different vocalist on every track. You can tell they went in the studio and remained true to their sound. Not a lot of effects or vocal stacking here. They just sing out straight and true. This is not the typical cookie cutter Christian project. LOM has a no holds bar opinion about what their music is about, it is about a person, Jesus Christ and His work on the cross for a dying world. There is no hidden messages here, it's right out front. They maintain that entertainment can be a important by-product of a ministry, but entertainment alone never changes lives. LOM has opened for several Christian artists over the years such as Aaron Jeffrey, Dallas Holm, and Russ Lee. Give this CD a spin and give them some input.
