Jeremy Riddle New CD "Furious" ~ Review and Giveaway

What do you think of the word Furious?  I think most of us identify furious with fury, anger, and violence. Indeed, furious is defined as full of anger or energy; violent or intense. I wouldn't equate furious with sweet, amazing love. However, Jeremy Riddle has done just that. 

His new album, Furious, is filled with songs that speak to God's furious(intense and energetic) love for us. I am put in mind of C.S. Lewis' Aslan when I consider how furious might relate to Jesus and His Love for us (And I have to chuckle after writing this, now that I have read more about the album on the Vineyard Music website~ these are basically the same words that Jeremy Riddle used to explain his purpose in using the word "furious"~ I guess the idea came across!).

This is a sometimes ethereal album, where the lyrics occasionally get lost in the long drawn-out melodies(Keeping in mind that I received the album minus the benefit of liner notes, which usually help me immensely when trying to immerse myself in new music).

Furious could be considered perhaps a little more "emotional" in nature at times than I am personally, so I appreciated reading that this work was the result of Jeremy stepping back from "Concert events that, to him, felt more about selling tickets and entertaining a crowd than getting people into a deep, sacrificial place of worship." Many of the songs certainly have an intimate feel to them~ perhaps a little "Slower" in pace than I generally prefer.

I particularly appreciate the feel and message of Acquitted  and One Thing Remains.
