Artist:   All Star United
Label:  Furious? Records

Sporting a decidedly Euro-rock swagger, Ian Eskelin & Co.’s tight lineup includes 10 hard-pop tunes. 

While All Star United excels in the hook-filled melody department and shows musical diversity (check out the ballad “Making It Beautiful” and the progressive rock of “Kings and Queens”), the best elements are Eskelin’s marriage of vocal attitude and lyrical aptitude.  He gets to the heart of the matter often but adds cool wit and playful wording along the way. 

Revolution is a total, head-turning package inside or outside Christian music.
