►What’s in the Playlist: Hearts of the Innocent by Kutless

Posted by Mercenary Spark on September 22, 2008

Sorry everyone, I’m still here even if I still have heavy rains All Around Me and a small wall fell on top of a nearby house. I want to thank you all for your patience, and today that classes were suspended, I finally post an article.  During my posting abscence the blog got to 15,000 hits, with some posts we might have gotten about a 1000 more in that time. I’ve been busy and I left my blog as middle priority in my life.

This week’s What’s in the Playlist song is by one of my favorite Christian Rock bands, Kutless. The song (unlike most songs by now-mainstream rock bands) does rock, but the band’s latest album To Know That You’re Alive has over half of the songs as “soft rock” ballads. The song’s about people who are criticized (for expressing their faith and being who they were) and are pressured to be like the rest, to be hopeless, faithless, suffering and without the important values of life (not having unity in the family). Jon Sumrall, the lead singer of Kutless said “this whole song is a little in-your-face perspective in that we have things in our hearts that we believe are right and true, and in the same nature that Paul did a couple thousand years ago, we feel like you can ridicule us, point fingers at us, yell at us and do whatever to us, but we believe in this and you can’t make us stop.”

Rating: 9/10 – A good Kutless song with great meaningful lyrics. Though I still like Treason better. The song is available In the Corner for you to listen.

Video of the Month: Talking to the Walls by Finger Eleven

Posted by Mercenary Spark on September 3, 2008

Sorry, everyone for keeping you waiting for another article, but schoolwork and work on the forum on my free time haven’t allowed me to do much around here. This article will get published in the midst of stormy weather. For this month, I chose a video I found a few days ago on the web. It’s by Finger Eleven, one of the coolest Canadian rock bands I’ve heard recently. The song’s good, but the reason I chose it was because of the originality of the video. This video is actually a recopilation of videos of the band playing, all filmed, edited and directed by fifty of their fans. Anyone can edit their own version of the video by clicking here.
