CD Review: Showbread’s Who Can Know It?

So when I heard months ago that Showbread was to follow up The Fear of God with a complete, free album – I was excited to hear I wouldn’t have to pay a cent.  Lord knows we all love free music!  The day it came out I picked it up, popped it on and sat down for a listen.

I knew that the disposition of the band had obviously changed a bit over the years and this reflected on my outlook towards listening to Who Can Know It? When you sit back and listen to the honesty and the boldness of this album, be prepared to be blown away by the sheer backbone of this band and the courage to contrast all that we deem normal and fitting in music. They have stepped into a new world we left so long ago – the world of truth. They dare to be as close to the line as most can go and they do it perfectly.

The first track  A Man with a Hammer is a blunt, descriptive look into the dark realms of the world we sometimes do not realize exist. The most beautiful aspect they bring to the table is redemption & Love (at least that’s what I got out of it). For the evil they so speak strongly against they contrast that with the story of Truth and Love, the example that Jesus left for us. I have missed, from the Christian rock genre, the story of evil redeemed and people forgiven in Jesus’ name. Showbread has hit that spot on.

With the hard hitting lyrics, the attitude that is Showbread, and the raw rock style they managed to infuse into a lighter album (like they have been perfecting over the last two albums) this is a must listen. I feel that this should be an album that is in everyone’s iTunes, so here’s where to find it: Download, import, and enjoy!

Peace, Love, and Prayers
