Eli Now the News -- Eli's latest offering is an album that is indicative of someone who has grown up. Grown up, not only musically, but also spiritually. I get the sense that Eli has had an experience that has changed him and he's now ready to react to what it is he learned. Now the News is upfront and to the point. In fact, it is almost harsh in its presentation. Reminiscent of old Rich Mullins, Eli sings phrases that don't necessarily flow with a particular rhythm, yet somehow fit perfectly with his own personal vocal and guitar style. You'll find yourself laughing at his blunt terminology in songs like Now the News and Do What You Said, yet you'll cry during the honesty in the song Master's Feet. This album is one of action. It's not scared to point fingers, because you get the impression that he's pointing right back at himself. My one complaint is the production of his voice. It's so raw that the album sounds a bit un-professional. Perhaps, that was his intent.
