The Real Life

An Album By

Bread of Stone

After signing with Dream earlier this year, this indie worship band has re-released its debut album, The Real Life. Unfortunately, many of the tracks on The Real Life too often fall into the generic mediocrity that plagues a number of contemporary Christian radio stations. Though the album contains a few gems, its lack of originality will keep it from making much of an impression. The standout track, though, is “One Way Runner;” it’s a blend of intricate, indie melodies and upbeat rock with a slight hint of funk, which mimics Switchfoot and highlights what Bread of Stone is capable of. If Bread of Stone focuses on this sound, then the band will escape its generic quagmire and make a name for the band in the indie genre.
