"Not What You Think"
Not What You Think -- they're not a Blues Brothers tribute band.
However, they are a blues band, spreading the Christian faith. A very
interesting and entertaining release, Christian music is one source of music
I truly do not have enough of, yet I'd want more of it.
"Dead Man Walkin'" is a very good song, as the lyrics state, "I'm a
dead man walkin', I hear Jesus talking." The Christian faith is obviously
being christened here. "Twistin' In The Wind" continues the faith,
with its upbeat blusey feel. "Confusing Pleasure Trap" gets the toes
tapping, in its upbeat blues fashion. "Came And Bled And Died" is a
true slow blues number, and was featured on
Hall Of Fame, Volume 6.
Love that typical 3-chord boogie on "Joy" -- not only is it bluesy,
it also has soul. And speaking of 3-chord, the Blud Bros.' publishing company
just happens to be named Chord of 3 Productions. "(No) Sympathy For The
Devil" is a remake of the Rolling Stones song, yet there is NO Sympathy
for the Devil himself, as the lyrics were changed a bit. The true blues fan
(and Christian fan as well) will enjoy "Out Of Control." The Muddy
Waters-styled song (in fact, what blues artist didn't perform any song in this
particular style) -- the Blud Bros. are displaying their love of the blues with
the continuing message of the Christian faith in their lyrics.
"Prodigal Son" has the Sun Memphis sound, similar to Elvis Presley's
"Mystery Train," and the guitars resemble that of George Thorogood. The
Christian message is clear on "See The Light Or Feel The Heat," another
good blues song as well. "Spiritual Warfare" combines Pop and the Blues
with the Chrsitian faith.
More blues, more Christian faith -- "Weighed In The Balance" is
another good one, and "Strong" ends the album on a good rock feel.
The Christian faith is purely defined on Not What You Think. It
also has a great blues sound. Any fan of the Blues will enjoy this album,
likewise enjoy how the Blud Bros. shows their Christianity, as I (and others)
will want to hear more Christian artists, and expand their knowledge of its
faith in music.
