I picked up this cd a couple of days after it came out from Best Buy, and wow I was impressed. I didn't really like too much of the older FSF stuff, but after hearing Light Up Ahead on purevolume I had to buy it.

My favorite tracks are "Light Up Ahead", "Like Someone You Know", and "For All We Know", the latter being an awesome inspiring acoustic song. The entire cd is absolutely amazing, and really the only song that I thought was mediocre was "Make It a Part/All Rise" (they're 2 connected tracks that is basically one song).

FSF' songwriting skills have gotten better with each album, I think. John has an amazing voice. The only thing that I didn't really like about the album as a whole was that most of the ten songs are under 3 minutes in length, but that is easily gotten over once you listen to the album all the way through. I gave it a 9.

That statement right there is one of the reasons that I love this album so much, even with how short it is. I want to use Light Up Ahead as a prelude for worship at youth group sometime.

I gave it a nine. One of my favorite releases of 2004, by far. But it does fall short in several areas, such as album length, and variety in the songs. But I really love it. A lot..

Yeah it's pretty sweet. It's a real peaceful cd that still rocks. I play it a lot when I'm stressed.

I got the cd because I heard "Light Up Ahead" and thought it was sweet. I found "Hide Nothing" was even better song. Then "Already Gone" is sad, but great and peaceful. "Like Someone you know" is another good rocker.

Then another fav on the cd is "Make it a Part" which is an excellent song that leads right into All rise and is like a connected song (which reminds me of Toby Mac, but anyway.). "Lead the Way" is another great song.

This is an excellent cd, and if you didn't like FSF's old stuff this is probably worth a try.

Great stuff.

Just to add some more, this cd really helps me when I'm feeling down and stressed, songs like "Light Up Ahead", "Hide Nothing", "Make it a Part/All Rise", and even "Already Gone" (which is kind of sad but really peaceful) just really help me feel better. And even just how the music is made it is really peaceful and offers a lot of hope and it just rocks!

As a longtime Sensefield fan, I bought this album already expecting to hear Bunch's vocals. So much of the vocal patterns make me think of Sensefield (which makes sense), but the band is just amazing on this one.

Interestingly, on first listen I wasn't that impressed with it...but after multiple listens the album just kept getting better. It's easily my second favorite album (sorry Jason Gleason, I'm just not a fan)...I gave TMID a 9 and HTSAF a 6...Hide Nothing gets a solid 8 from me.

This is a good Album, I love Jon Bunch's vocals, and their backed by solid instrumentation. It gets an eight from me too.
