Album Notes
Multi-award winning Christian rock band Sweet Crystal continues the music, the message, the mission and the ministry that has kept the band going longer than any band in its genre in Michigan.
This, our 5th release (thus the name), is our most powerful and poignant to date - which is saying a lot.
Recorded and mixed by uber-producer/engineer Chuck Alkazian at Pearl Studios in Canton, MI and mastered by renowned mastering engineer Scott Hull of Masterdisk, "5 Carat Rock" starts bold out of the gate with "Even Now" complete with chanting monks (ask us what they are chanting), synth melodies and Bill's signature guitar sound.
"Come As We Are" seems destined to become a praise-and-worship standard (a first for Sweet Crystal) featuring the vocals of longtime backup singers Amy Susan Heard and Gail Engling.
"Jericho" is short and very sweet - a quick journey in more progressive music styling that compares the walls we build in our lives to those of that proverbial ill-fated city of the Old Testament.
"Can't Turn Back" is a re-visualizing of the story of our everyday modern world and the people we all come in contact with.
"When He Returns" is a 'Crystalized' version of a Bob Dylan classic southern gospel song, covered as only Sweet Crystal can.
"Nothing Here (For You To Fear)" is a remixed, remastered re-release from the movie "War Flowers" sound tract, made even sweeter by the skills of Alkazian and Hull.
"Home Sweet Home" - yup...the perennial power balled of the 70's Motley Crew returns with an even sweeter spin. Recognize the intro?
Finally, something of very historic and personal value: "Sgt Penney 1945 (Live)" is an amazing interview from one of Sweet Crystal's biggest supporters, broadcast live from the Pacific front back to a Detroit radio station, highlighting and archiving one soldier's story. Amazing and humbling.
This is "5 Carat Rock" - this is who we are and what we believe.
Come, go with us...again.
Marq, Bill and Steve
