“I Keep Falling” will show you The Way. Punk influences peek out as the high-speed rock kicks into high gear from the first track. A youthful enthusiasm shows through in the energy of the music as well as the style of the lyrics.
Straight-forward rhythms, simple but solid guitar, and standard alternative rock vocals bring nothing new or innovative to the table but settle into a sound that fits nicely into the ear of a lover of rock.
Some of the songs feel like stepping into a forum discussion with topics like naturalism and relativism laid out like a theological response to a post from an opposing viewpoint. Others talk about the challenges of following God’s will, betrayal, and standing your ground.
You’ll need to be in the mood to hear about topics beyond what’s typically covered in music you’ll hear on the radio, but perhaps that alone is reason enough to check out The Way.
