Album Title: Sound of Melodies
Release Date: August 15, 2006
Genre: Rock
There is no question in my mind from the very second I first heard "Sound of Melodies" to now, having heard the entire album, that Leeland are a band to not only be reckoned with, but a band here for the long haul. They break the mould delivering honest, insightful, and relevant lyrics paired with energy-infused melodic music that makes the soul happy and your inner karaoke star break out and start singing along. "Reaching" aptly titled, as it reflects our search for something bigger than ourselves, as Leeland sings "We're breaking off our chains to run to You." "Yes You Have" rolls right along with the joy of knowing the Creator for all He is, Savior, Creator, and Helper, the chorus hooks right in as a great stand out track as it does on "Can't Stop" too. Each of Leeland's songs are absolutely brilliant, and I think I know why. Leeland told Soul Shine almost all of the tracks came out of prayer, that's how important prayer can be for musicians and for the people hearing the music, knowing the words and the spirit of the songs; you feel the wisdom and surrender in the delivery and lyrics themselves. I could go on and on about the beauty of "Sound of Melodies" as it opens with what sounds like an echo from an ethereal pond whose droplets make music as they fall. One of the best album's I've ever heard in my life no matter what market or genre, I'd give it a 6 out of 5 if I could, 'til the Kingdom Leeland, 'til the Kingdom!
