For years now, the guys behind Liberty n’ Justice have put out release after release of great melodic hard rock/metal, usually featuring a smörgåsbord of special guest musicians from both the Christian and secular realms of the music industry. With this latest best-of release, the second of its kind and supposedly the band’s last all-star collaboration, they give us four hot new tracks from the actual LNJ band, plus 15 tracks taken from Soundtrack of the Soul (2006), Independence Day (2007), Light It Up (2010), Chasing a Cure (2011), Hell Is Coming to Breakfast (2012), and The Cigar Chronicles (2013). The four new tracks include “Honor Among Thieves,” a mid-tempo bluesy hard rocker; “Grace and Gravity,” which picks up the pace a bit with a bluesy modern rock feel; “Memphis,” which has a more commercial hard rock flair; and “Lost and Found,” which slows the pace down a bit for a more melodic rocking ballad feel. The album is due out physically in October, but you can pre-order now and receive the digital version immediately.
