"Newsboys Go" Review


Introduction: For many of you who don't know who the Newsboys are, they are an experienced Christian rock/pop band who's origins go all the way to Australia where the band was formed. They have had 12 albums and they are widely popular around the world. Many consider them to be one of the best Christian bands of all time.

The Review: Recently, the Newsboys released their newest album (on October 30, 2006) titled simply, "Go." I purchased this CD recently and I thought I should tell you what I think of it because it was created by my favorite band. For people who haven't followed the Newsboys, their recent albums were worship CD's, different from their normal pop/rock routine. In Go, the Newsboys go back to their rock/pop and it sounds great. Songs like Wherever We Go, Go, Something beautiful, The Mission, I Am Free and more deliver this sound and it returns well to what they are known for. Since the Newsboys are also known for their awesome worship songs, you won't be disappointed to know that they have this in their album too. It's hard to be exact on this but songs like In Wonder and Gonna Be Alright are wonderful worship songs. In this CD, the Newsboys put in a mixture of almost everything they have done and even some new things (they left out the disco.) They have rock, pop, worship, and even some Australian rap. Yes, in Your Love Is Better Than Live, Peter Furler raps about GOD'S love and how things can be hard to understand, only being understandable through GOD'S eyes. This CD focuses on a theme that the Newsboys say came randomly. The theme is going out and making disciples of people who might not know JESUS. You can hear this in songs Go, The Mission, and more. Plus, they have a bonus CD that comes with a DVD "Behind the Band" and three bonus songs. The Songs are I Am Free (Live), Something To Believe In, and City To City (which also goes with the theme of the CD.) I don't know why the last two aren't even songs in the CD, but you can bet that this CD will leave you fulfilled. It is one of my favorite Newsboys CD's and it is filled with some instant hits. Some highlights are: Wherever We Go, Go, Something beautiful, The Mission, In Wonder, Your Love is Better Than Life, I Am Free (Live and normal), Secret Kingdom (which sounds kind of like Breakfast- It's a fan service), Gonna Be Alright, and all of the bonus songs in the special edition. That's almost all the songs! There's 11 tracks (14 in the bonus edition) and you won't be disappointed if you buy this CD. It is one of the best CD's of 2006. Now, I'm not a really good review writer, but I have to spread the message to buy this CD! Good job Newsboys!

      RC,

      This is A1. It has been a while. I saw your comments in November trying to re-connect with 4 of us. Here are Fenrir’s and Jennifer’s websites:
      http://fenrir-writing.blogspot.com/
      http://www2.blogger.com/profile/16528611770211261141

      I don’t know about Arelas. It seems you want to prove to him/her that you have listened and thus have improved your blogsite. Good for you. I don’t think we will go back to have a vigorous discussion as before; however, there’s a person posting in your ‘The Evidence of JESUS (B1)’ and ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ on 1/1/07. Interesting perspective!(I assume they’re from the same person-an anonymous atheist whereas I am an anonymous agnostic.) I guess you can carry out discussions with that person.

      It’s just not me taking off without saying good-bye (I found your blogspot today.) Take care and best wishes.

      Hi A1! I felt bad about how I acted with Arelas. Even though I am just a kid, I didn't act very mature. Anyway, I will check out the person who is commenting. He/she probably has an interesting view point. I didn't really mean much with the B1 post. I just wanted to mention Chuck Norris somehow. Maybe this will lead me to another interesting discussion.
      ...
      I was just thinking, maybe you should start an A1 blog?

      Bella, A1 is my friend from a little while back. Us and another 3 people had a "chat-room" type discussion on my blog, that lasted over 100 comments.

      I will post again soon.

      GOD bless U all!
