Downhere - Downhere (2001)
Posted on 03-04-2004 by Matt4JCthis is probably my favorite CD in my entire collection. It never gets old and both "Calmer of the Storm" & "Making Me" are in my top 5 songs ever. Definetly worth paying full price for, you will not be disappointed from beginning to end. "Raincoat" is probably my least fave song on the album, and I think of it as an awesome song! From the majestic "Great Are You" to the rockin "Protest to Praise" and "Larger Than Life" to the beautiful "So Blue" to the funky "Free Me Up" and to the hilarious "Rock Stars Need Money" this CD is awesome!
Posted on 04-30-2003 by OldiesmannI love this CD! My favorite song is "Raincoat", but all of the songs are awesome! I'm a huge fan... I post on the messageboard a lot and even have a special section on my board for them (it was originally a temporary thing to give downhere fans a place to post when the main downhere board was down, but people liked it so much that I kept it there).
Posted on 08-04-2002 by TracyThis is an awesome CD, definitely my favorite! :D I love that they reference Bible verses for each of their songs, it helps to understand what the're about more fully. "Free Me Up" is an excellent reminder that this place really is not our home, "So Blue" touches on the depravity and sorrow of this world, but doesn't fail to point out the hope found in Christ. "Breathing In" portrays beautifully what we as Christians have to look forward to, and "All The Reasons Why" is just wonderful. "And we sing 'cause You are bigger than any reference we could make, and we dance until we're tired because we know Your name is great." Gotta love that. This CD has powerful lyrics, a fresh perspective, and great music. All in all, definitely deserving of a 10 in my opinion.

While they were playing I noticed that they do the same chord porgress for most of their songs. Afterward I metioned it to one of the band members (I can't remeber who) and he said "shhh, don't tell. " :D
My youth group was always playing it before and after youth group and on the way and back from camp. It was funny because everyone was singing along.

I saw them live b4 I bought the CD, and they were great, but they were opening for another band, so they didn't get to play all of their stuff. They have a sound that is pretty unique to CCM. I can't wait till they release the next CD. I hope it's as good as this one is.
