Manic Drive VIP
I'd not heard of the band Manic Drive before being offered their new CD, VIP, to review.
At first listen I thought I might be a little too old for this music, that was only the first song though. If the entire CD was like the first song I would have stopped listening. I found Electric to be annoying and not at all what I wanted to listen to.
The CD changed course immediately after that one. VIP reminded me of a 70s disco tune. Not my favorite.
King of Mercy about brought me to tears.
My favorite song on the CD though has to be Song to Sing. I wanted to open the windows and crank up the volume. The lyrics are beautiful and they spoke to my heart.
Manic Drive sounds a little boy band/worship band. As though they aren't sure what they want to be. Good music though, and definitely what the young people are into these days.
This CD was provided for review by FlyBy Promotions
About the band:
Manic Drive has been widely known as a Canadian band who always delivers a great show, but over the past few years and project releases, they have added to their extensive touring of Canadian and US markets multiple Billboard Top 10 & 20 singles on CHR & Christian Rock Radio. Manic Drive is clearly very intentional about reaching their generation and inspiring them to pursue a deeper walk with Christ and to get involved in changing the world they are inheriting. And they are uniquely equipped to do so. The band members, all in their early-mid twenties, have made sacrifices to pursue God’s call on their lives. Their life experience, spiritual maturity and ministry have opened doors to speak into the lives of their own generation and that is perhaps the most defining characteristic of this group of guys.
