(self-released)

“This is not a band compiled on a whim, but a band put together with great care and thought towards the spiritual and musical aspect of performing.” That’s what the bio on the website for Tenth Hour Calling says, and it could not be stated more perfectly. This five-piece Christian rock band uses rhythms, harmonies and technical brilliance not heard in any genre. They are better than the sum of their parts, and since most of the members have degrees in music, that is saying something. This is not a garage rock band. These guys know exactly what they are doing. Whether it is the funky groove of “I See” or the Eagles-esque “Last Time,” Tenth Hour Calling has managed to pool their talent to make the debut album of the year. The intensely fierce and technically flawless “Rain” and the lyrically brilliant and spiritually cleansing “Color Me” are the two best tracks on the album — and they are two of the best songs to come from the Christian music world in quite some time. The band’s bio should include two additional statements: “These five guys have more talent than is legally allowed” and “If their debut is only the beginning, than this band could end up being one of the most technically sound and talented bands ever.”
