this band is awful and is a good representation of everything that is wrong with music today. they claim to be christians but this song has no soul and the people playing the music are talentless. please stop trying to feed the christian world this raging pile of mutilated horse manure you call music. in short, this sucks relentlessly.

I think this is the most impressive example of love and Godly living I have ever seen. I'm so moved, I think I'll go bash some of my brothers and sisters at church on Sunday for the way they look/smell/sound.

Thank you.

I think you guys should lighten up on your comments and should take the time to raise our fellow brothers and sisters up.  I commend Press Play for putting the word out there and sending a positive message in today's society.  By you putting your highly opinionated comments out there, you show the world what compassionate and judgmental people christians can be. Way to go for lifting up our faith in already "Christian-scared society" An awesome way to lead by example.... NOT!

I agree there is some Christian music in this generation that sounds like a tribute to a screaming heavy metal band, but Press Play is not included in that category...We need Christian music that keeps young and old listeners alike interested in the Lord, and this song is an example of the new "vibe" Christian music has going on!  I appreciate all kinds of music, and when it makes you want to dance and rejoice in this life, what more could you ask for?

PressPlay...are they any good? United States
PressPlay...are they any good?
I heard this on the Today Show, I thought the band sounded rather awful.  Their voices were too hoarse, like they were about to crack or had smoked since the day they were born.  Under some strange compulsion, I listened to the recorded version of the song online and realized that it actually sounded really good.  I don't know what went wrong during this performance, or if they just suck live, but I'd definitely suggest giving them a second chance.

@Erin Sitera, I was being way over the top sarcastic to communicate the same thing you did. I agree completely.
The guy I was being a punk to is actually a friend of mine, so he knew I wasn't just being a jerk. This, however, is not really the forum for that.

At any rate, sorry if you guys got the wrong idea (I can see how you would). Apologies.

i love their song but it sounded horrible in the video. i wonder if the lead singer was sick or something was just wrong w/his voice that day, cause on the cd he sounds great.
     ps. props to scotty for apologising that was sweet, more people should do that.

Just saw these guys (& girls) featured on "Take Action" within the "Check the Sound" program on Daystar...first time I saw them and just loved their ability to reach out and entertain all! Love the attitudes AND the talent...anyone who wants to knock a group performing live - put yourselves up on that stage and see how well you do, or DON'T do...just one of those things (- and we ALL have our 'off-days'...on stage, EVERYTHING you do is dependant upon your set-up and sound engineering, the placement of monitors...just NOT an easy gig, no matter WHO you are!) TY all for trying to spread HIS Word...God Bless you each! Wink

I have seen them live at Angelus Temple (the Dream Center in LA), and this was not a normal performance. They are usually Awesome live! Not the best recording here, but that doesn't mean it is that way all the time... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK PRESS PLAY!!!!!
