Song Of The Week: 5/27/12

Song: "All The Way Live"

Artist: Thousand Foot Krutch

Album: "Set It Off"

Year: 2001

"All The Way Live" appears to be a song about not succumbing to greed. The vocalist seems to be saying that money isn't everything in life. It can't buy you happiness and you can't take it with you when you die. Basically, it's better to be rich in your soul than in your pocket. Thousand Foot Krutch is a Christian rock band from Canada that formed back in 1995. 2001's "Set It Off", which was their first "official" release, saw the band very much influenced by the fusion of rock and hip hop. I don't think it was a style that suited the band, especially the band that T.F.K. is today. They weren't quite as fierce as Rage Against The Machine. They weren't quite as funky as the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Maybe if you morphed the Beastie Boys with Incubus, you may get a sound that compared to Thousand Foot Krutch early on in their career. When their next album, 2003's "Phenomenon" came out, T.F.K. was a band in search of a new direction. Their sound began to move away from the rock/rap style and more into a straight ahead rock and roll sound. They began to sound more like the radio friendly rock sound of bands like Finger Eleven and Three Days Grace. T.F.K. remained extremely active during the 2000's, releasing six albums in an eleven year span. 2005 saw the release of "The Art Of Breaking", then in 2007, T.F.K. released "The Flame In All Of Us", followed in 2009 by "Welcome To The Masquerade" and finally in 2012 with "The End Is Where We Begin". As you can see, Thousand Foot Krutch is a band that basically drops new material about every two years. Currently, as I said before, T.F.K. released their latest album, "The End Is Where We Begin" in April of 2012. I'm sure the band will be out on tour to support their latest project.
