Thumbs up WOW!

What can I say? This will be one of the best albums of the year for sure! It shows how much Pax 217's music has matured over these 3 years since TWOSEVENTEEN was written, and it is absolutely awesome! Every song on the record makes you want to play it over and over again. It has a ton of emotion woven into every track and I haven't taken it out of my CD play since I bought it! The music on ENGAGE is definetly the music that you would hear from a live concert with Pax, and I recommend it to everyone!

engage is much better than their first one,even though they got no song as dope as A.M.,but they get a bit more deep as far as lyrics and theme goes."What is Love",really powerful song,a lot of emotions be packed in it,definitely the best from the album,I haven't heard such a broken song since Plumb's "Damaged"
This one is straight for your collection
"Dreaming comes so easily,cause it's all that I've known
True love is a fairy tale,I'm damaged,so how should I know
Healing comes so painfully,and it chills to the bone
Will anyone get close to me?,I'm damaged,as I'm sure you know...

I,m scared and I'm alone
I'm ashamed,and I need for you to know..."

Plumb's "Damaged"

Smile Nice!!!

I remeber the first time I heard the name "Pax217". It was the first youth convention I went to. I came in as an Atheist and went out a believer. Two groups were playing live concerts at the end of the covention (Among Thorns had played worship all weekend, so I did get my fill..) who happend to be John Reuben and Pax 217. I unfortunately had to sit (rather, bounce as my heart beat against my chest as the bass beat my lungs in) through the John Reuben concert and didn't get the chance to see Pax live. Later on in life, I have purchased their Engage CD, still recognizing the name from two years past. All in all, nice stuff. The punk sound is undeniably there, which can be a bad thing since I never dug on punk. I do like the guitar work on songs like "Melody" and the emotion of songs like "What is Love" (still makes me mad listening to it...). I give the CD an 8, as I'll probably outgrow the sound as I mature in age (unless Pax decides to continue mature themselves) and I just can't listen to a punk sounding CD for an extended period time lest I start thrashing around my room like a maniac in unbridled craziness.

Hey all,

The new CD Engage is pretty good, although I found that I liked the first one (Twoseventeen) better because it had more of that Rega roots feel to it. It also had more vairity in the guitar sound (clean and delay) as opposed to mostly all out distortion on the Engage CD.
I do have to say that the new CD is very good though. Melody is my favourite song so far. Pax does allot more rappin on this CD and give it a more hardkore feel (which I like)
Overall I'd give this CD a 9. Goodstuff.

It's a CD you must buy! Not one of my very very top favorites (I have like only three of those), but it's one of my top favorites. There's great talent in these guys.

My favorite songs on ENGAGE: Tonight, Voices, PSA, Yesterday, Melody, What is Love

this cd is excellent!! :kduh: *drools* i just love pax217. they're an amazing band with lots of energy-driven songs and live performances.

you range from the peppy rock/rap songs like "tonight", "PSA", and "melody", to the slower lyrically influenced songs like "i'll see you" and "move on this"... to the very edgy and emotional "what is love".

pax has got it all and i love them to death. definetely give this cd a shot, you'll love it.

This cd sounds pretty good, with the rapping and the punk style choruses. I really liked Melody and What is Love. The choruses on PSA and Engage are really good too. I give it an 8. If you like this cd you might want to check out the band Pillar too. peace

I bought it and quickly became disinterested. This band is much much better live. I love their live shows. Their CDs are mediocre.
