Ok, so I finally got this album (yeah, I know). I must say the track I'm liking the most so far is Bittersweet. I haven't seen it mentioned on this thread yet. Maybe because it's basically John, Jason and White Heart (Billy Smiley, Chris McHugh, Anthony Sallee, Brian Wooten, Dann Huff). Really love the energy and the White Heart feel.

Bittersweet is my favorite.
Perfect song!

I really liked all of the songs except for Old Guys Rule. It would have made sense if it were young guys saying it, but since the writers are already old, it seems more like they're tooting their own horns...

My Favorite track is Brother to Brother.

Hey, now, I mentioned it as one of the standout songs on the album.

After nearly 7 months of planning, The Union of Sinners & Saints is finally moving forward with their "StoryTeller Tour," and they're starting here in my town of Murfreesboro, TN (and then onto Nashville). I'm looking forward to seeing what songs they include on their setlist! Now if only CPR could get their tour together.

I'm not sure why they felt the need to market this as "unplugged" when it's clearly not. "Just Reach Out" has electric guitar and keyboards are heard throughout the entire medley.

While I'm always happy to hear new material, these vocals sound a bit raw. 😬

I'm excited that the band is coming to the (somewhat close) River Rock Fest in Maine next July.

I was already planning to be there, so this is a bonus!
Well done my good and faithful servant, you may enter with me into paradise.
