RECORD REVIEW: Carrollton "Breathe in Deep"

RECORD REVIEW
Carrollton
Breathe in Deep
_____________________ 

Amid the glut
of dubious and
disposable offerings
brimming from this
week's New Release
receptacle, there is
one record that's 
truly noteworthy.

Produced by award-winning ace, Paul Moak, the debut record from Carrollton offers roots rockers a delicious slice of American(a) pie.

Comprised of frontman / guitarist Justin Mosteller, bassist Jordan Bailey, lead guitarist Jeremy Menard and drummer Michael Loy, the Kentucky-based combo recorded Breathe in Deep at Moak's famed Smoakstack Studio in Nashville.


The super-charged lead single, "Pass You By," gets the record off to a crunchy start. The song's initial guitar-driven, U2-like edge surrenders quickly to an undeniable Third Day charm, as it offers the powerful and intoxicating message, Breathe in deep and set your worry free — before the moment's just a memory. Don't let the beauty of this life pass you by. The track currently is garnering YouTube clicks at a fever pitch.

"This is Life" is another of the record's more high-octane tunes. And while "Red" makes for a catchy sing-along, the acoustic-based "Death Has Lost Its Way" is beautifully organic.

Laced with tight-knit vocal harmonies and a bold, yet simple message of faith, "You are Faithful" possesses a classic Gospel feel and is perhaps the record's highlight.
