As mentioned above there has been a pretty heavy level of criticism leveled against the bands lyrical content as trivial and jingoistic, but when one considers the language barrier and the content of much of CCM at the time, it is not too far out-of-place. Rhyme structures suffered the most because of the translation issues.
This hampered early Jerusalem releases as well. Later, when the band began writing songs in English, LP) issues were resolved.
But the music and vocals are so strong that the lyrical issues are often ignored by fans. Lyrically the entire album was better than what Jerusalem provided, but were not all that more pedestrian than most of Christian music, and at least they had the excuse of translation issues. Themes from the album were common Christian music fare, but this album was all about the music and vocals. The Chicago wall of vocals in the chorus are just huge. The sibling quality shines through with great harmonies here and throughout the entire project.
The song also possesses some of the albums best lyrics. This was musically so authentic and out-of-place in CCM, the pop band was labeled a new wave band. The progressive verse structure switches to a Supertramp like melodic chorus before returning to the darker and heavier feel. All the while there are touches of world music Observerad - Edin-Ådahl - Alibi (Vinyl throughout. In fact, I was always surprised someone like Petra never bothered to cover this gem.
This was a modern rock worship a decade before anyone else ever ventured into the genre. The vocals really shine here. Edin Adahl was always one of those bands I wanted to see in concert and this song is one of the reasons why. In fact, the chorus is a full Steely Dan rip…but it works! The final chorus fade is such a hook that the verse structure can be forgiven. Like the trend was at the time, a ballad must always finish an album and be released Observerad - Edin-Ådahl - Alibi (Vinyl the single.
CCM radio never really touched anything from the album though KYMS was all over several of the songs making them local hits. Edin-Adahl never received the recognition their quality works deserved and that is real shame. The first two releases deserved their day on CD, but as far as I have been able to ascertain they never made it. That is a true travesty especially when one considers the true high quality production.
Their stuff has been reissued, unfortunately if it was originally recorded in Swedish, Observerad - Edin-Ådahl - Alibi (Vinyl, it was only re-released in Swedish. Oh man! What sweet rejoicing at this strong debut. Lots of energy and harmony in Observerad - Edin-Ådahl - Alibi (Vinyl high quality production. I just found the Swedish version of Alibi on iTunes a few tracks are Observerad - Edin-Ådahl - Alibi (Vinyl English. This is just great stuff.
The original post is valuable to those who treasure Christian rock. And the comments are very useful as well. Unfortunately for Edin-Adahl, they were far out of bounds for the conservative, uptight industry producers and critics that pervaded CCM at the time. I absolutely loved this and X-Factor. I probably have the cassettes around here, but I know I have them both on vinyl. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Edin-Adahl.
