"Returning with their high energy styled pop rock, All Star United is back. With their new album titled The Good Album, you would hold high expectations for it, hoping that it is indeed good. Well, one thing can be said right away, it`s not just good, it`s great!
With the opener "Surface of the Sun", we already begin to see ASU`s high energy style shining through. The piano-driven "The Blame" is essentially God speaking to us, saying that He doesn`t choose sides and the He`ll take the blame for us and our sins. "Lights Out" showcases more of a pop/punk sound to it, with Ian Eskelin`s vocals soaring during the chorus. The acoustic tinged "Once Again, With Feeling" contains a powerful chorus of "I believe in love, I believe in You, I believe that You and I will find some healing".
The album`s highlight, the sarcastically titled "Dude... That`s Freaking Awesome!" showcases Eskelin`s precise vocals and witty songwriting. One of my favorites on the album, "Beautiful Way", which is the closer, with a resounding chorus of "What a beautiful way, what a beautiful way, You have about You". It ends the album on a high note." - Christian Rock Rocks.
