The Afters – ‘Live On Forever’ – Album Review

The Afters are a Christian Pop/Rock Band out of Texas and have been around for over a decade.  If you aren’t familiar with them, you have missed out on some great music and you should go back and give them a listen.  ‘Live On Forever’ is the band’s fifth studio album and was released a little over a week ago by Fair Trade Services (formerly INO Records).

I have had this album on repeat a lot over the past week and it gets better with every listen.  If you like upbeat pop songs with a slight rock edge, then The Afters are what you have been wanting to hear.  The album is full of positive and uplifting songs all with a Christian message.  I always feel good after listening to their music and that is what brings me back time and time again.

The album kicks off with one of my favorite songs they have ever done.  It has a heavy drum beat and a darker, more rock tinged sound.  The song is “Shadows” and will leave you wanting more.  All songs have positive Christian messages, so not going to rehash what each song is trying to say.

My Sunday Song – “Live On Forever” by The Afters

For My Sunday Song #7, I chose “Live On Forever” by the The Afters.  The song is off their brand new album, ‘Live On Forever’.  The song for me is a reminder of that faith in Christ will let us live forever even after we have left this world.

I was reading a review of the song on a so-called Christian website and was a little disappointed by the writer.  He stated that he wouldn’t listen to the song because it was to open for interpretation of what religion.  The song didn’t specifically mention Christ or God so could be interpreted to be any religion.  What an idiot.  He is one of the reasons I have a disdain for overly religious people.  It is their way or no way.  Not very Christian of him in my opinion.  Sorry for the rant.

The song is so soothing and so inspirational.  I instantly connected to it when I heard it and it is one of my favorite songs on their new album.  I will do a review of the album later. For now, enjoy the song and have a great Sunday!
