Reviewed by Matthew Griggs

Nebraska pop rockers Remedy Drive have gone through an evolution in the past few years. That hard work, change and emotion can be heard throughout this album. Their musical influences take in everyone from Switchfoot to Coldplay and their opener "Better Than Life" is an honest anthem that merges some pounding piano playing and driving guitar, as lead singer David Zach uses his distinctive voice to push home a message of reliance upon God. On "Resuscitate Me", the band changes musical direction to something heavier, and this is where I believe the band thrive. There are some nice Muse-like guitar-ramblings at the end of the song, which you hear again later on the album. The absolute highlight of the album is the belter "Make It Bright", which with its string infused rock, shines out among the other, softer tracks. "Glory" is a synth-rock combo that again shows the diverse range of songs this album has to offer, but sits aside the other guitar-driven tracks well. 'Resuscitate' is a great re-introduction to a band that bring to the table a varied take on a rock-worship album. The combination of anthems, honest ballads and heavier rock epics make this a refreshing listen.

First full length rock album from the new lineup of the US-based rockers.

Three years ago Remedy Drive was the poster child for breakthrough rock acts on the rise. Lead singer David Zach and his brothers Daniel, Paul, and Phillip had emerged from their close-knit childhood together in Lincoln, Nebraska onto the national stage, charting a major No. 1 radio hit for seven weeks (All Along), receiving several Dove Award nominations including New Artist of the Year, and touring with Christian music tastemakers.

But that success came after years of struggling to get there. And upon arrival, the big time was ultimately no friendlier to Remedy Drive than anyone else trying to balance work and family in the music business; it still demanded long stretches of time away from wives and children, and it still was not a statistically easy way to make a buck. One day in November 2010, David's brothers told him they had each decided to leave the group in search of a more predictable lifestyle. After the meeting with his brothers David sold his home in the Midwest, moved with his wife and three kids to Nashville, Tennessee, and started looking for new band members. He found Memphis-based drummer Timmy Jones, from Chicago, guitarist Dave Mohr and bass player Corey Horn.

And so we arrive at the second breakthrough of Remedy Drive, newly signed to Centricity Music and primed to release its duly storied and invigorated re-introductory album, Resuscitate, produced by Pete Kipley (Matthew West, Kutless, MercyMe).
