I don't think power chords are bad. Do any of you think power chords are bad? A good example of power chords dc Talk: "Jesus Freak."

power chords can be used VERY effectively! twelve stones does a good job with them. and it doesn't get boring 'cause they throw in some great riffs too.

POWER CHORDS

I fail to see a problem with power chords. It makes the song easier to duplicate in live performances. As for "shallow lyrics", don't mistake shallow for simple. The plan of Salvation is simpleas well, and at least with Kutless, it's not hard to know where they stand.
Don't get me wrong I enjoy 12 Stones as well. I think they are a solid band with a lot of good things to say. I just think that Kutless is a better band.
But like it has been said before in this forum, to each his own.
God Bless

I jsut wanna add...
that despite soem harsh comments...this thread has not goen too far with anythign said....something as obviously controversial as this thread can get not so nice a lot of tiems....glad this didnt...

and.

".#1. The Psalms are worship. Kutless' songs (for the most part) are not.

#2. The infallible word of God is not open to artistic critique. Rock music is."


#1- the Psalms are worship true, but they ahve the same intent as KUTLESS to turn our thoughts adn minds to what and who God is...

#2- the say KUTLESS' music is too repetitive...well the infallible word of Godis also...if yu hold this agaisnt KUTLESS you logically hold it agaisnt the Bible as well..if yu dont, yu are cherry picking, not sharign a general feeling of artistic evaluation...
#3- I vastly respect yur reponse to ym nubmer 3

12 Stones is real cool group. I like the guitar solos and heavy riffs on the CD; awesome stuff. I did give them nine rather than a ten though because of their reptitiveness, which has already been touched on.

As far as Kutless versus 12 Stones is concerned: 12 Stone has a more musical edge in their music due to their solos and screaming, but Kutless is very good in their own right because they convey alot of passion through their musical structure and non-repetitiveness. My Youth Drama team does a human video to "Run" by Kutless that I thought up and staged. It is a very powerful ministry tool and very God birthed and moving video.

I feel Kutless' music is more ministry focused where as 12 Stones' is more self expressionistic. Either way, I like both bands equally. Both have great potential.

Very good guitar riffs and solos. I will have to agree that some songs sound very much alike. However, there are many great songs with some sweet guitars.

Their singer is very good. The lyrics are very good as well. Some of them really spoke to me about some things I've have been through lately. He's very versatile in his range and his style.

Drumming isn't bad. Nothing mind blowing and nothing bad.

All in all, a solid album. A very good first release. Some of my favorites are Crash, The WAy I Feel, Broken, and Back Up.

Thumbs up

This Cd has been the most played cd in my collection. I gave it a 10 because, all though they are not classified as a christian band, they have a good way of getting everybody to listen to them. They play concerts with mainstream secular rock bands and get their message across to people who otherwise would most likely be turned off by someone talking about the God and how he changed their lives. These guys !!ROCK!! I saw them in concert and they were awesome.


In -Christ-

I love this CD. I don't know what I was thinking back in the day when I voted and gave it a 9. 12 Stones deserves a 10.

12 stones is great and I enjoy them. In particular I like the verse riffs and the bass, particularly during the verses. I really like their style; however, they could use a little variety. Even the great verse riffs everyone, including me, has been talkin about are repetitive. For example, the 3rd and 6th songs on the CD have strikingly similar riffs (that is in the rhythm, not necessarily in the notes played.) As someone has already said, their lyrics are a little vague. They also seem to use very little variety in song structure, as has been pointed out. They should experiment some with a few different structures, not too much though, cuz then it could lose thier individual sound. That's what's hard: creating a truly individual style while maintaining variety. Only a few bands have truly done it; Switchfoot is the best at it.
