After more than two decades on the Christian music scene, Georgia-based veteran rockers Third Day return with 'Revival'. Recorded live at the legendary Muscle Shoals Studios, Alabama, this is a fresh, vibrant, potent mix of all the trademark Third Day signature sounds and styles ranging from blistering Southern rock and polished power ballads to soft, acoustic worship. A soulful, old-school, gospel groove throughout gives things a timeless, classic feel. Lead single and opener "Revival", with its funky, rootsy, folky vibe, starts proceedings off in swinging, old-camp meeting style as lead Mac Powell pours out his heart for God to move. "Leave This World Behind" is the hardest cut here, its wailing guitar intro recalling the band's rockier roots - no surprise as the band link up again with Monroe Jones, producer of some of their earlier landmark releases ('Time', 'Conspiracy No. 5'). "Let There Be Light" is a typical Third Day power ballad, a polished diamond clearly destined for airplay. The lyrics are joyous, hopeful and celebratory - the ice-cool "Gather Round Now" showcasing Powell's fine, versatile, gritty baritone as he testifies to the goodness of God over a backdrop of hard, crunching guitar riffs. An additional five cuts make this deluxe edition excellent value. A gem of an album from a band still at the top of their game.

New soulful gospel classic from the veteran band.

Compact Disc. 18 tracks.

Third Day draws upon their southern musical roots on their newest album, Revival. Produced by Monroe Jones, whom Third Day worked with on their GRAMMY winning album, Come Together, and others, Third Day delivers energetic calls for "Revival," up-beat, foot-stomping songs testifying that with faith "Anything Is Possible," and soulful songs proclaiming that God is "Faithful and True." Third Day, who's career spans 8.6 million albums sold, 31 No. 1 radio singles, 24 GMA Dove Awards, 4 GRAMMY Awards, and what Billboard Magazine calls "One of the best rock bands, period," have made an album that is truly a look into their souls - it's music that you can't help feeling both nostalgic and refreshed when listening, and it will easily appeal to both career-long and brand new fans of the band.
