Downhere - So Much for Substitutes (2003)
Posted on 03-04-2004 by Matt4JCAnother awesome job put out by our Canadian friends. A steller sophmore release! This CD is harder than downhere's past CDs, but just as good. I think "Starspin" is by far the best song on the album, it's worth buying it for this song alone. Directly out of Psalm 19, and relating our worship to the star's worship of our Almighty God. But there is much more to this album than just that. "Comatose", "Home", "In America", "Iliad", "Headed", "Stone", & "How They Love Each Other" follow very close behind Starspin. Going from such diverse topics as depression and pain to joy and love and heaven, this is a great CD. My one complaint with it is that Jason doesn't sing enough. I like Marc's singing, but not as much as Jason's deep voice. Most everyone who has heard "Breaking Me Down" and "What It's Like" has loved the sound, but I think those are 2 of the worst 5 songs on the album. That's not saying much though, since all of them are good. Go out to the store and BUY THIS NOW. You won't be sorry.

Surely the Lord Lives!

Posted on 09-23-2003 by robmeyerHello Christian guitarists, you of all people should appreciate this latest effort from Downhere. Talk about "guitar driven" ! If you haven't heard it you owe it to yourselves to check it out. These young Canadians are mature in their faith and their musicianship. Rob
