ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
theREIGN made its (nameless) live debut as a "fill-in" act for another Hull Christian band in November 2002, and almost immediately grew into something special, as we began to follow a collective calling from the Lord to get music out there for His glory.

Since then, we have played a variety of well received concerts and worship evenings in churches and other venues across the city of Hull and immediate surroundings, in front of Christian, non-Christian and mixed audiences.

In addition, we have been able to exercise our musical muscles, and sense of fun, through invitations to play at several functions, including youth outreach, a charity ball and a couple of weddings. These engagements have allowed the band to perform a mixture of material including secular covers, ranging from the 1960s to 2004, and some of our own more spiritual material.

The name of the band developed out of the song "I Love The Rain", featured on "Sing" which in many ways is the band's signature song and touches people wherever it is played.

The guiding principles of the band and its music are encapsulated in verse 1 of Psalm 96 ...

"Sing Yahweh a brand new song. Earth and everything in it, sing. Sing to Yahweh - worship Yahweh!"

... and we continue to seek God's guidance in moving our music and ministry forward as a group of musicians and worshippers.

TheREIGN sees its music as an entry point to the Christian faith - expressing he heart and spirit of the gospel message of Jesus Christ in a way that will leave the listener having seen some small vision of what it means to be in relationship with Him - and the greatest blessing has been the sight of God touching others through our music, sometimes in the most unexpected and wonderful ways.

This album is the first fruit of our ministry together and features a variety of songs from all-out rock worship to quieter, more reflective pieces and points in between. The goal is to open eyes to God's Kingdom and lift the hearts and souls of our listeners.

Sends visions of people singing, clapping and dancing to your imagination.
Listening to the album, as a whole, it does run like a live praise & worship event. The opening "We Are One" sends visions of people singing, clapping and dancing to your imagination. "Sing to the Lord" and "Thank You" slow things down a bit and, as well as sounding a little alike, I found the repetitiveness of the former rather grating on the ear. "Kyrie Eleison" has a nice stripped-down acoustic sound and, in similar mould, "Not Alone" is beautifully sang. There's an interesting arrangement of the old hymn "Praise His Name", plus a live recording of "Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer, and both work well.

David's vocals still slip into the Dylanesque style, at times, but I think that it's this quality that helps to make an appealing listen. At times, there seems to be over use of instruments - like on "I Love The Rain", and, perhaps, this needs a some attention. But, otherwise, The Reign can be well satisfied with this release.

More than just a first outing from a newish band
It's all there - gorgeous harmonies, intricate guitar work, catchy riffs - and the songwriting too is of a high standard and makes this more than just a first outing from a newish band.

Highlights include Kyrie Eleison, which would sit snugly on a worship album from a major label; and Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer, one of three bonus tracks recorded live at St Barnabas, Swanland.

In the room for improvement department, the worship ballads seem to outweigh the rockier tracks, and it would have been nice to know more of who did what.

Bearing in mind the plethora of worship material available, the real selling point here is that it is local musicians praying for their city and encouraging those around them, and with suitable encouragement from both this team could go on to greater things.
