Reviewed by Megan Dickey

This American rock trio from Nebraska have been together six or seven years now. The band's leader Bryan Olesen is also a member of the Newsboys. The Pearls' debut national release has no expense spared when it came to production with a Grammy Award winning team and guest vocalists including Phil Joel from the Newsboys. My only question is with such elaborate measures in production, guest performances and song writing what is left of the band's own originality? I guess a live show will have to prove that. It's the smooth and strong vocals from Bryan Olesen and guitar-driven melodies that make this record a pleasant rock listen. First single "Alright" is a hook heavy tune with a message of hope reminding people that there is something to live for. The band recreates Matt Redman's "Whole World In His Hands" adding their own sound setting it apart from the original. "Revolution" really adds energy to the album through Olesen's funky voice and a catchy guitar hook. Its straightforward lyrics create a clear message of stepping up and becoming the revolution. While the record will mostly keep you listening and engaged, there are a few filler songs that you will quickly skip over. With a mostly up beat album Casting Pearls and crew have delivered a well produced memorable record.
