Overall, it's a great CD. There's little change in the sONICFLOOD sound and there are some well done original songs. My three favorites are definitely Cry Holy, Everyday, and Famous One. Cry Holy is the only one original to the group but they do add their own distinctive sound. One of my favorite things about sONICFLOOD is that their songs show a love and passion for God. Since the beginning, almost every song has been a song of adoration and worship for God. There is plenty of room for songs that talk about the Christian life, but it is the worship songs that really get my blood flowing.
The only improvement I would suggest would be a few more originals but other than that, it is a great CD.

First of all...if you dont know yet this is NOT the orignal sonicflood band of the first two cd releases (self titled and sonicpraise). People still are confused by that.

But this cd is even worse then the one before it. The guys voice freaks me out a bit, the music doesnt change all that much, and its like techno-ish and just is not a good worship cd. So i wouldnt recommend it.

It is hard to be unbiased with this group concerning the original and newer lineup. I write this thinking of the newer Sonicflood as a totally different group with only one previous release.

I bought the CD the day it came out, excited at the thought of one of my all time favorites creating a new and (hopefully) better CD. I shouldn't have. [I]Cry Holy[/I] is a far cry from [I]Resonate[/I]'s original sounds and creative lyrics.

There were several disapointing things that I will point out. First is the lack of new material. As mentioned in the above reviews, very few songs were actually written by the band. For a band that was known for its great original songs coupled with older classics, this is disapointing.

Second is the instrumentals though this point may not be taken as seriously by some. I have played various instruments since I was in Kindergarten, and this has drastically influenced my musical preferences. One of the things I want out of a group is creative instrumentals - [I]Cry Holy[/I] suffers from a serious lack thereof. With the exception of a few nice licks tossed in here and there, the guitar playing is extremely basic consisting of mostly basic strumming and picking that sounded like it was made up during the recording. Keyboards never really stand out (even though their keyboardist is extremely talented) Drums could have come from a drum machine.

Last is the vocals. In the [I]Resonate[/I] CD Rick Heil sounded very strong and emotional. In [I]Cry Holy[/I] his voice sounds thin and almost robotic. I get the impression that he doesn't believe what he is singing.

Overall I think [I]Cry Holy[/I] was released well before it should have been. It sounds like the band was tossing together something to get back into the worship music trend. Considering Sonicflood's incredible history, I expected much more.
