In keeping with classic Thousand Foot Krutch style, their latest album “The End is Where We Begin” does not disappoint. I have loved them since I first heard them roughly seven years ago and they still amaze me with the way they continue producing great albums time after time. I also enjoy how much they have kept their tone and have not deviated too much from their initial material and distinctive sound.
The new album is chockfull of high-energy tracks, just as you would expect. Just as previous album tracks have been showcased on video games, such as EA Sports “NHL 2010” as well as televised productions, you can expect this album to be no different. Couple together a fantastic sound and intense adrenalin and TFK is what you get for the most part. The best way to describe this band, if you haven’t heard of them, is one of those bands you have on your iPod to get you pumped up to fight or run or whatever intense activity it is you’re participating in. However, they do have their softer side.
The song “So Far Gone” seemed to stick out to me the most. Despite the rest of the album being energetic, this simpler, more calming song really spoke to me individually. The chorus of the song states, “I want to be so far gone in you, so far nothing else will ever do…” If you imply that to a relationship with God as I did, then those lyrics make perfect sense. You should give the song a listen and let me know your opinion.
If you are looking for a high energy album and music to which you can work out to and will give you that extra adrenalin rush this album is definitely for you. (This also fits for the rest of TFK’s stuff, as well) Also, if you’re looking for a few mellower, acoustic-like songs that have some real meaning behind them, I urge you to check out the new upcoming album.
The End is Where We Begin releases April 17, 2012 so be looking for it and expect to hear some more great music from a great band.
