Frankly, I didn't think the CD was all that good. They need to develop a lot. On a whole it didn't seem totally up to snuff to me.

:yep: BarlowGirl is so awesome. They stand all for purity and modesty and are one of my favorite artists

they remind me of evanescence on Never Alone...

are the rest of the tracks good?

Posted on 04-08-2005 by Small
Better than you would think from my above post. Yeah, they're fairly good, but Never Alone is by far the standout track in my mind.

bruceband, I must disagree. I luv BarlowGirl, but that's not the only reason I disagree with u. BG has a stand 4 purity and not dating. boys in the mall? sorry but that doesn't even make sense! lol :lol: well, anyway even if I hated the band, I think that as Christians, we should always try to be polite and encouraging, cuz thats what God wants us to do! lol 'Don't be a hater! it's bad for ur health!' lol I like that!! good job Napoleon17! ;) :clap:
anyone who hasn't heard BG: I highly recommend them! lol

These girls are great! The songs are really encouraging, especially Mirror and Average Girl. Check out their website:[url][/url]

Honestly, I'm a guy and am not really into Girl Rock, But THESE GIRLS ROCK!
They have honest lyrics about life with great music.

God Bless!

barlow girls songs are really encourging but after u listen 2 the cd over and over agin they can get really anoying :spin:

They sound like Evanescence. Not that that is a bad thing, but I think they need to experiment musically and move out from the Evanescence shadow. But they are a good band. They perform well.

I saw them at Creation West. Before, I had never heard of them. They were one of my surprise finds at the concerts. I really liked them (and their presentation of their show).

These chicks used to go to my church! :lol: No, seriously.

Posted on 09-07-2005 by bruceband
Is this a Christian band in any way? They seem way too hung up on the boys at the mall. I read the lyrics; very few references to Jesus...and they mention God in passing.
Ok, they're cute and they "sound" alright, but if they were a puddle I had stepped into, my toenails wouldn't get wet.

Barlowgirl has a passion to write songs about the journey that God has taken them on in their lives. Our main topics include trusting God, purity, and our stand on not dating.
Trust- "We believe that God is calling everyone to live a life that is fully surrendered to Him so that He can do His work in us and begin to show us His true purpose for our lives. We're definitely not saying 'we've mastered this concept and now it's your turn', but instead that this is a daily process and a journey that all of us will be on
Purity- "In a world that constantly bombards us with impurity and immodesty, we feel called to take a stand against what the world is telling us is acceptable. Especially in the area of clothing and modesty."
Not dating- "We believe that God has one perfect man already chosen for us; therefore we have no need to worry ourselves in searching for him. When the time is right we know God will bring us together. In the meantime we are not hiding in a closet avoiding all males. We are still living our lives, just without just without the pressure of having to have a boyfriend.

taken from Barlow Girl's website

uhhh, I guess they aren't too hung up with the guys at the mall.
and they mentioned God in there several times. and that's just one little ittie bit of their website. as for not getting your toenails wet, take your dang shoes and socks off, and stop being a hater. It's bad for your health... :yep:

I just started playing guitar. I love the BarlowGirl cd! I have already prepaid for the new CD, Another Journal Entry. Have you all gotten on your computer with the Self titled cd? They have the Barlowgirl logo and a website with an extra song on it and a never before seen video. Well, just wanted to post.

Hey! You obviously couldnt recognize a christian band if they came up to you and started preaching the gospel. BarlowGirl is a Christian band made up of 3 christian young ladies.
You led me talks about Jesus and Surrender talks about surrendering your life to him. Clothes talks about how young women think they need to wear immodest clothes to fit in and BG is saying you dont need to wear skimpy clothes to fit in. I just suggest before you post again you check your facts!

WOOT for Barlowgirl!way to go chiklitz!

Posted on 09-22-2006 by J_freek
well, first of all bruceband, you didn't read the lyrics that well.

they are about remaining pure and not dating until God shows them the right man to marry.
Just because a band doesn't mention Jesus like secular bands mention the f word, doesn't make them non-Christian.
Personally, they are wonderful girls, and have really inspired me to remain pure, and stand true in my faith. there are not enough of inspiring girls like them in the world.

Pretty good to me. I'm not really one for Pop but the CD's pretty good for a debut album :yep:

You did? Like really read the lyrics? To what songs?

Oh God you have to save me
You're my last and only hope
All my right answers fail me
I can't seem to make it on my own -The chorus of On My Own

I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No no.
I needed you today
So where did you go?
You told me to call
Said you'd be there
And though I haven't seen you
Are you still there?

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel you by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone

And though I cannot see you
And I can't explain why
Such a deep reassurance
You've placed in my life.
We cannot separate
'Cause you're part of me.
And though you're invisible
I'll trust the unseen.

Chorus - Never Alone That whole song is about God, the entire thing. Its about how ever though somtimes you dont feel all the close to God, he is always there, and your Never Alone

I walked with you
Just like we've done for so long
You seemed so near
But even that's become so common

It's not just you, just been together so long
That I thought I knew everything about you
But today I saw; did you open up my eyes?
'Cause I feel like I've just seen you for the first time

I didn't see you
But God I want to
You've come alive
and I think I've fallen harder than the first time -First verse/pre-chorus/chorus of Harder Then The First Time

Good morning
The night is over and gone
I thought once
This dark would last for so long

Pre Chorus
Feel the sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place

Jesus, Jesus You found me
Through the long night you led me
You set me free -Verse 1, pre chorus, and chorus of You Led Me

My hands hold safely to my dreams
Clutching tightly not one has fallen.
So many years Iíve shaped each one
Reflecting my heart, showing who I am.
Now youíre asking me to show
What Iím holding Oh so tightly.
Canít open my hand; canít let go
Does it matter?
Should I show you?
Canít you let me go?

Surrender, surrender
You whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but canít you see
My dreams are me, My dreams are me

Say you have a plan for me
And that you want the best for my life.
Told me the world has yet to see
What you can do with one
Thatís committed to your call.
I know of course what I should do
That I canít hold these dreams forever.
But if I give them now to you
Will you take them
Away forever? Or can I dream again?
-Surrender. That entire song is about God aswell, talking about how we all need to surrender our dreams/life to him and live a fully surrendered life to his plan and will

And you said they seem to be "Way to hung up with boys at the mall" ? Did you not see the song Average Girl? They are against dating. They believe that dating is so overrated these days and they are leaving it up to God to bring him their future spouses. That doesnt mean they hide in the closet away from guys, they just go out and groups, and are just friends.

So what I'm not your average girl
I don't meet the standards of this world
Chasing after boys is not my thing
See I'm waiting for a wedding ring


No more dating

I'm just waiting

Like sleeping beauty

My prince will come for me
No more dating

I'm just waiting

'Cause God is writing my love story

Boys are bad; that's certainly not true
'Cause God's preparing one for you
If you get tired waiting till he comes
God's arms are the perfect place to run



Sleep - that's the only thing for me
'Cause when I sleep
God's preparing one for me

-Average Girl

Please, before you start critisizing(I cant spell, so shoot me) someone, actually read their lyrics and stuff, dont jsut read two lines and everything. Hung up with boys at the mall? :lol: Yeah, right. Read those lyrics then tell me they dont mention God or sound like a christian band

I finally saw these girls live and was blown away. They are really great and talented. Usually you see a girl group and they all just sing and have a band. But these girls are the band. That is so cool. :yep:

Posted on 12-13-2005 by MyGodsenough89
Both of the cd's are amazing. Em its good to see ya here Im guitargirl from the Sp.

Posted on 12-15-2004 by lilchilipepper
These girls are awesome! I was so inspired by them to write more of my own songs. They're whole cd is really quite good. However, I did think that track 4 was a little weaker musically than the rest. But, I love their lyrics and how most of them talk about God.

Posted on 12-18-2005 by skye92
Hey I'm also from SP...skye92 in case you didn't notice...

Anyhoo, this CD rocks. So does their second CD (Another Journal Entry). I give it an 8.
