THIS MUSIC REVIEWER HAS TWO TOP TRACKS, “HEAL THE WOUND” AND “STAINED GLASS”. “HEAL THE WOUND” HAS NOT ONLY TREMENDOUS VOCALS BY THE TRIO BUT ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE LYRICS: “HEAL THE WOUND BUT LEAVE THE SCAR, A REMINDER OF HOW MERCIFUL YOU ARE, I AM BROKEN, TORN APART, TAKE THE PIECES OF THIS HEART, HEAL THE WOUND BUT LEAVE THE SCAR.” JONATHAN MARTIN POURS HIS HEART OUT ON “STAINED GLASS”. I HOPE THAT THEIR RECORD COMPANY RELEASES IT AS THEIR NEXT RADIO SINGLE. AGAIN, MORE POWERFUL LYRICS: “DRIVING BY THE CHURCH ON SUNDAY FROM THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN, THERE ARE THOSE IN THERE AND THOSE OUT HERE, DEALING WITH THEIR SIN, THE RAINBOW COLORED WINDOWS MADE ME REALIZE AT LAST, NO MATTER WHAT SIDE OF THE WALL YOU’RE ON, WE’RE ALL STAINED GLASS.” OTHER OUTSTANDING TRACKS INCLUDE THE TOE-TAPPERS, “RUNNING,” “DAYS LIKE THIS,” “SMELL OF SMOKE,” “STILL STANDING” AND “LOTTA LIFE.” OUTSTANDING SLOW TRACKS INCLUDE, “BEAUTIFUL,” “GOOD,” “MERCY COME IN” AND “ WHEREVER YOU ARE.” YOU DEFINITELY NEED STILL STANDING BY THE MARTINS IN YOUR MUSIC COLLECTION!!!
