i'll give it a 9.

I like almost every song on this alblum and even the one i don't like i just am not fond of but it's still good.

it's fun to play along with on the guitar and some of the progressions are easy yet hard if that makes any sense.

the rockers on the cd... See the Glory, Jesus is Life are lots of fun to play with.

the only song i'm not too fond of is declaration of dependence. and yet even then i like it but not as much as the others. i think what helped me to like this cd was going to the concert and hearing some of the stories behind the songs.

I'd give it a 9.

Just about every song is deeply convicting and you can tell SSC is doin wat God wants him to do. Great album, everyone should get this. The only song i don't like is "God Follower" but I guess i should "Wake up and see the Glory".

I'd have to disagree -- he did so much more electronically with this song than he has with any other cd. He even admitted himself that with age he thought he would mellow out, but then all these songs came into his head and he was honestly "waking the neighbors" by staying up late at night with the band recording.

He busts it loose on this cd. I gave it a 10, although just because I'm still more of an acoustic person, this one is just a notch below Speechless.

Yeah I can play the guitar. I know all about virtuosos and trembalos and arpeggios. I can do it all. I can play your basic rhythm guitar, like. jug jigga jug jigga jug jigga jug jigga jug jigga JAH JAH jiggidy jug jigga jug jigga jug jigga jug jigga jug jigga JAH JAAH. You know, something like that. I can also play some pretty hott lixx, too.

Thumbs up SCC's best CD to date

Declaration is just one of those CDs that you can feel is so Spirit-filled. From the rocking songs like Live Out Loud and See The Glory, to the humorous Jesus Is Life, to the ballads like Carry You To Jesus and Savior, and everything in between, it's all so powerful. God Is God is a great song about the omnipotence of God in uncertain times, written right after 9-11. No Greater Love is a stirring tribute to the love of Jesus, and also talks about the tree missionaries martryed by the Aucas in South America. In an ironic but amazing twist, the song ends with one of the very men who helped murder the missionaries- now a born-again Christian- chanting in the Auca language. It sounds kind of wierd, but it is very powerful, just like the rest of the CD.

My rating: 10/10- and I don't give out many 10s; a great, great album

My verdict: Get the CD. This is one of those must-haves, with so many incredible songs that just about everyone will love and appreciate. I've never heard anything bad about this CD, and I don't have any negative comments either. Go, right now, and get the CD.

Thumbs up It Rocks!

I don't see how you can't like this CD. It still has a trace of his style, yet refreshing. I really love Saviour, which also shows he puts a mixture of music in his albums. (btw, I gave it ten)

An awesome album, on par with or better than Speechless. I gave it an 8, just because something has to be unbelievable before I give it a 9 or a 10.
