Although they saw early success, Rush of Fools have been known for their somewhat bland and boring acoustic guitar centered pop music. When I heard the first few seconds of the title track of their newest album, We Once Were , I thought perhaps the mp3 I was listening to was improperly labeled. Instead of acoustic guitars, I heard fast upbeat electric guitars; with distortion! Who is this band? A brief listen to the remaining tracks and I realized that this was indeed the same band who had released two rather lackluster, but popular, albums before. The opening song and title track, "We Once Were," is an excellent choice to kick-off the newest album for the new sound of Rush of Fools. The song is about the band themselves, but it is also about all of us as Christians. It centers around the fact that life is in continual motion.

Normally it is the singles that peaks the interest of the listener. With heavy guitars introduced in the chorus, this is for the rocker in us that wants to stand up and proclaim that Jesus is the answer. There is a tension inside of us as we struggle with everyday issues, and as this song shares that we need to give everything to the Lord; Wes shows us that we sometimes need to surrender even the life-changing things over to God, acknowledging that in our weakness, He is strong to pick up the pieces and carry us through the life that we lead. Through the rest of the album, Rush of Fools imparts many themes through their lyrical and musical arrangements. A well produced song filled with a classical rock element, kudos to Wes and the band as they bring forward the issues of tragedies and how Christians ought to respond to them. A solid project compared to their earlier releases, as the band continues to develop, so has my anticipation grown for their fourth album! Kudos for Wes and the band, for an enjoyable collection of songs!

I might have went into this with different expectations on the whole now i know t simply have NO expectations and cherish every second i get with this new guy im interested in. It is a new experience yet for me as I have only been married 6 months to a doctor. At first it didn't bother me, but after a while I started feeling more like a booty call and less like a SO. It's been tough to always move and find a new job, friends etc I agree a support system is needed. I agree she should be able to watch a movie or do her own research. If we can say them together, great; if not. My loneliness is something that I try to manage with an antidepresants and cognitive therapy. Work on myself, not him.
