ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE MUSIC:
******
Said Sower's intimate debut, We Are Not Consumed, arrives as flagship worship album of the Atlanta-based Jettison recording label. Songwriting on the 10 track LP fuses mature folk with a tight post-rock rhythm section. Scripture-based lyrics resonate with solemn lucidity focused on God's infinite mercy. In "Sweet Surrender," the album's cathartic climax, a rare holy stillness pervades.

THE STORY:
******
Two and half years of writing and recording in a basement studio have come and gone…and this time brings with it a certain pride…what we have dreamt about for quite awhile…has finally been realized…it hasn’t been without frustration or anger, doubt or fears, tears or hopelessness…

But “we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because god has poured out his love into our hearts by the holy spirit, whom he has given us.” not that we could ever compare our situation to biblical suffering…but it still puts our hearts at ease to know that something good can come out of this mess.

said sower is the creativity that is deep within us…and our music is one way we worship and give credit to god in our lives…but also…because we are a forgetful people…we find it serves more so as a reminder of a mindset we long to have…to worship god in all things…through every situation…to daily remember his promises…and what he has done and continues to do for us..

THE REVIEWS:
******
we sent a copy of We Are Not Consumed to Steve Brown of keylife.org, and here's what he had to say:

"I just finished listening to the CD. I loved it big time. I am an old guy but, frankly, would rather listen to your music than to organ music. You have done a work that is fresh and real.

I liked it all and thought that the two cuts We Are Not Consumed and When We Were Yet were so creative."

Holding Silence

Pure, Honest.
Said Sower has captured what all of us want to hear and sing in a song. With beautifully arranged instrumentation, and purely honest and longing vocals, this CD is a must have.

Lamar

Great Alblum
This album presents a fantastic range of folk with soothing vocals that slowly build into indie-rock sounding rhythm. Through the music and the lyrics, you find yourself comforted and then moved and then better off for having been through both. There is a lot of skill in this record and it is one that I would recommend it to anyone.

Magical
Man this album is Fantastic. It's sound is extremely unique and full of talentedness. The lyrics are unbeatable, they actually have meaningful content, and you can tell great thought has been put into them. do yourself a favor and get this cd.

Erik

Musical Integrity
Okay, so I'm the brother-in-law, I'm supposed to say something nice, and complimentary about this album whether I mean it or not, right? We'll I'm not going to do it. Why? Because I want to give them the honesty and justice they so deserve. I hope, and I'm pretty sure, in the end they'll all appreciate my honesty and objectivity, over a string of contrived complements. I'm going to try and do this critique as objectively as possible.

First of all this is Christian worship music and I am not a Christian. I'm also not a Christian hater. On a personal note I respect creed -each individuals system of beliefs- as long as they are happy, don't bring harm upon themselves or others, and aren't pushy and/or self-righteous about their beliefs.

Being an open-minded individual I do listen to Christian influenced bands i.e; Sufjan Stevens, Pedro the Lion, Page France, Sunny Day Real Estate etc... and I love them. I listen to music which reflects the effort, passion, patience and of course intelligence put into the music. This album has all of this in abundance. This is their collective cathexis. We Are Not Consumed, is different because it is a worship album. I don't normally listen to worship music, but (and this is a very large but(t) which deserves two tee's) this album is different, very different. These guys have created a whole new category for Christian worship music; Post-rock Indie Worship. Now how often does a band come out with something so original it needs a new category in order to define it? Not often. Originality, creativity, passion and persistence has made this release a one-of-a-kind. Their music covers the gamut, from the first song Out Of The Depths, you get simple, delicate, intimate acoustic guitar strumming as T.j's soft, beautifully voice floats over the chord changes, to the powerful emo-esque, guitar-driven song From The Ashes. You can hear Built To Spill guitar influences on Only By The Cross, Pedro The Lion influences with How Majestic, which starts out as slow as a lullaby and crescendos into a powerful drum-pounding tribute to the Lord. Some of it is clean and polished and one can tell the band members know there instruments and know them well. Other songs are rough, raw and powerfully simple. Their passion is obvious and I respect that they chose to wear there beliefs on there sleeves with bold pride rather than hiding behind music with vague lyrics for the sack of selling records. Well, I might have crossed the line with that statement, but you get my drift. Their music does fall into an esoteric category which might find them struggling for sales, but their integrity is intact, music brilliant and passion powerful. Whether it be depressing heart-wrenching music, offensive yet honest art, a great small-production red wine made entirely by hand, or a tragically sad memoir which no one wants to read because it brings them down, one thing remains, it's creativity integrity I look for, and these guys express this in their music with glorious abundance.

Addictive!
This is one of those albums that you can just leave in the CD player and listen to over and over again. I hear something new each time.

Tony

This album is simply fantastic!!!
This album is truly fantastic! The lyrics contain confessions that move the heart, and the music is alive and vivid with life and complexity that captivates anyone listening. This is a must have cd!

Nick Johnson


This is one of the most thoughtful and innovative worship albums that has been released in the last decade. The music is mellow and relaxing to listen to, although sometimes a bit dragging for my personal taste, which is why I didn't give it the full 5 stars. The lyrics are very honest and communicate the incessant need for God's mercy and unconditional love when it comes to dealing with his creation.
