7.5/10
This CD is too short. Also, "Raindown" is a rerelease and "Everything Glorious" has been heard before. After A Collision, people expect more than ten tracks out of David Crowder. Finally, the hyped up cameo of Ted Nugent for "We Won't be Quiet" is slightly disappointing.

Still, this is Crowder, and it is very well done. The electronics stuff is excellent, the Hymn is excellent, and Crowder can still be called a musical genius.

I voted 8.

I do not this CD can really be compared to A Collision because that is one of those once in a lifetime records. Remedy is very much like DC*B and their styles. I do agree that Mr Ted N could have a little more shredding time along with some more volume. Rain Down is a pretty awesome re-do of the original if you ask me. The CD is still very well produced and the goodies are always the fun part. Buy it if you have some $12 in your pocket. If you don't go to the bank and get $12 just so you can buy it.

It doesn't get better than "Illuminate". But I still liked it. 8.

Fantastic CD. David and the guys didn't let me down after A Collision. In fact, I like this CD as much or even a little more than their previous one.

"Surely We Can Change", "Remedy", and "The Glory of It All" are amazing songs(every single song on the album is great in my opinion), but my favorite is "We Won't Be Quiet". It has everything from simple, yet powerful lyrics about being unafraid to shout our praise to God to an awesome guest appearance by Ted Nugent on lead guitar.

This definitely deserves a 10 in my opinion.

After many listens to this CD, I have come to the conclusion that this is probably the most original album I've heard in a long time. Love the electronic ambience. Unlike most worship groups that do the same thing over and over again and it always sounds the same as every other P&W artist that gets overplayed the radio...they can do something original. I'd say some standout tracks would be "Can You Feel It" "The Glory Of It All", and "We Won't Be Quiet". I give it an 8...it would be 9 without "O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing".
