There’s a number of reasons to like 7eventh Time Down. One I appreciate is that their lyrics are straight forward. They don’t try to play it safe as a crossover artist by writing lyrics that could be sung to God or their girlfriend. (For example, “I love you more every day” could be taken in a number of ways.) Every song on this Kentucky-based band’s third full-length album clearly states their beliefs and shows their passion for God, Jesus and their faith. The music is straight forward, as well. You can take that as a negative, but it also makes it simple enough for any teen band to pull off during a worship service, something I consider a positive. I also appreciate their songwriting on this work; the band avoids overused tropes like a “meditative moment,” something many Christian bands overdo by stopping the music, either in the middle of the song or as a throw away track on the album. If you are a fan of the band and enjoyed any of their previous work — and aren’t looking for any big surprises — God is on the Move will have no trouble keeping you as a fan. Just don’t look for them to break any new ground in the genre with the release.
