I remember my dad saying that he loved this album many times, and lately, I've been relistening to a lot of albums and listening to some for the first time. I remember hearing these songs when my dad would play them on our home stereo when I was growing up.
The day I listened to "Strength" was rainy, and I was working on some schoolwork for college. When I listened to "Heaven or Hell", I remembered it from when I was younger and I was blown away by it and I wanted to listen to the rest of the album.
I would listen to Strength from beginning to end, on shuffle, and it was always in it's entirety because there are certain albums that you can try to listen to one song, but you remember how many great songs are on the album and you listen to the whole album instead of only one song.
Strength is an incredible album. Musically and lyrically. The playing is impressive and the lyrics are relatable. The passion and talent possessed by these four guys is what makes this an album you need to hear.
