Review: Seven-track EP, released in 1999. Simple ballads, such as the title track (also the group's name, must be the theme) and 'Amazing Grace' set a reverent tone of obeisance. The percussive 'Kum-Bah-Yah, ' at under a minute in length, is less a song than an interlude, but it and 'Obey Him' show the quartet in light rock mode. Skillfully produced and arranged, their sound is full and reverberant, but allows enough room (and silence) for the songs to breathe.
Songlist: Amazing Grace, Obey Him, Rescue, Kum-Bah-Jam, I Will Rise, By His Hand, It Is Good (reprise)Rescue : The Difference
Review: "The Difference" is Gresham, Oregon-based Rescue's 4th CD, and their best yet. One major difference is the introduction of a fifth male voice, bass/vocal Percussion expert Tim Storms, who has added tremendous depth to Rescue's all a cappella sound. What has returned is Rescue's powerful original material and arrangements-some of the strongest lyrics about their personal commitment to and love for Jesus we've heard. 10 songs: "So Excited, " the title tune, "When the Chariot Comes" and "Come As You Are" our two favorites, "From the Beginning, " the deeply personal "Darkest Hour, " "Whatever is True, " "I Choose You, " "So Subtly" and "The Lord's Prayer." A full, rich, soulful sound, perfect intonation, top-drawer arranging, lyrics that are pure poetry - it all makes "The Difference" one of the best Contemporary Christian CDs we've heard. Recommended.

Review: Gresham, Oregon-based Contemporary Christian group Rescue is Josh McKenney, Jason McKenney, Jason Pearce and Jason Overstreet, and 'First' is in fact their third most impressive CD. There are some Christmas carols in here, for sure, notably 'Silent Night, ' 'O Holy Night, ' 'Go Tell It On The Mountain, ' 'O Come All Ye Faithful' and 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, ' but the arrangements of these are such that you are hearing them for the first time. But the original songs, some by group members, are the meat of this powerful CD, and of Rescue's ministry. 'Christmas To Remember, ' 'The First Christmas, ' 'In Your Care' and 'Mary Did You Know' - with the telling lyric, 'Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod? When you kiss your little baby you've kissed the face of God' remind us that the first Christmas meant much more than toys, tinsel and Santa.
