Disciple - Horseshoes and Handgrenades


By Temery Pasket, Staff Writer

Disciple does a great job of mixing a 80s style with sensible Christian lyrics like Petra and the intense metal of Metallica. These two influences are smoothly mixed and strongly demonstrated in their newest album, Horseshoes and Handgrenades. The inspiration comes from the saying "close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades" which is used all throughout the album. These lyrics are Disciple's strongest. Even if you don't care for rock or heavy music, these lyrics are still beautiful put together that can be appreciated by anyone. They express the theme of the brokenness subsumed by grace which addresses anger, shame, and pain. This is a powerful album about the struggles and addictions that Christians battle in their everyday-war against Satan.





Group 1 Crew- Outta Space Love

Group 1 Crew once again releases their third full length album Outta Space Love on September 21, 2010. The album consists of 12 tracks five in which can be found on their other album Spacebound . It is said that tracks one, four, seven, eleven, and twelve were actually released earlier this year. The album brings out great material especially with the soon to be hit song “Let’s Go” featuring Toby Mac. The album kicks off with a great lead off song “Live it Up” which will certainly have you ready for the weekend. Just one listen and it will be your ringtone for Fridays. The top track on this album would definitely have to be “Manipulation.” It’s a perfect catchy dance song with some of a hip-hop feel that will have you listening to it for endless hours. The lower point of the album is “Beautiful.” The chorus becomes real annoying especially towards the middle of the song. The end part of the song really saves it with a funky sounding rap section. The song overall is fun to listen to but could be served a little bit better on a special release single, or even an EP. If you’re a fan of the Black Eyed Peas look no further because this group provides it all with the exception of less profanity and more positive messages within their tracks. If you’re looking for some beats to bust out on on the dance floor, well Outta Space Love is the whole package and much more!
