This cd is Allies Virtues re-release! Let me make this clear that this cd is the 2001 re-release on Millenium Eight Records. This is one of Allies best cds, and personally one of my favorites. It plays absolutely fine and the disc is great. The cover is great and has few scrathes, but we will change it before we send it. / Before Bob Carlisle became known as a father with a soft heart ('Butterfly Kisses'), he teamed up with Randy Thomas, both formerly of Sweet Comfort Band, and made some enduring rock music. This is the second of their six studio albums. Though their later albums received more marketing support, and therefore radio airplay and popular acclaim, this earlier album is just as hot musically.

 

Reminiscent of progressive rock bands like Kansas, and produced by John & Dino Elefante, it features hit songs like 'Let's Fall In Love All Over Again,'And 'Jacque Remembers,' and the tearjerker 'Prayer For the Children.'Allies leaped out of the middling pack and became one of the better Christian pop bands of their time / This time they brought a stronger pack of tunes and it makes for a better 40 minutes. It also placed one track on Christian radio. (#6 hit "If You Believe") There are no outright cringers on this one, although opener "Hardened Hearts" and "Harmony" are less compelling than much of the other material. Those who despise digital drums will dock this album points for that, but c'mon, this was recorded in 1986 and it was the "hip" thing then. Vocalist Bob Carlisle seems in better command of his voice here and spends less time "showing off" his range and more just trying to communicate the lyric.

 

Standouts here are the hunger relief ballad "Prayer for the Children", apocalyptic pop/rocker "Runnin' Out of Time", a song from Jesus' point of view to his disciples ("Somebody Told Me You Were Crying") written as though between His crucifixion and His resurrection 3 days later, "Jacque Remembers" (a new Christian looking back at where she's been...it includes a neat reference to the Beatles 'Getting Better') and a song(autobiographical?) about a musician with a struggling marriage asking for another chance ("Let's Fall in Love)And(All Over Again)
