If you’ve been a fan of Christian rock music for more than a decade, chances are you’ve seen Thousand Foot Krutch in concert, probably have an album or two and maybe even a signed a poster. TFK’s powerhouse single “Rawkfist,” included in this collection, was the anthem for Christian rock fans back in the day, so when I realized this song was released ten years ago, I finally felt a little old.
The Made in Canada: The 1998 – 2010 Collection celebrates 12 years of best-selling albums, numerous Dove Award nominations and hit singles from the Ontario-based band, Thousand Foot Krutch. This compilation features 10 tracks, spanning four of Thousand Foot Krutch’s most successfully albums (Phenomenon (2003), The Art of Breaking (2005), The Flame in All of Us (2007) and Welcome to the Masquerade (2009)), plus two previously unreleased tracks. The selected singles showcase TFK’s transition from the rap-rock/nu-metal sound that was popular around the turn of the century, to a more alternative rock style speckled with melodic ballads.
The new track “Searchlight” is another quiet ballad, while “Complicate You” goes back to TFK’s roots of rap-rock.
