Third Day – Wire
Includes I Believe, Come On Back To Me, ’Til The Day I Die
Wire is the seventh album by Christian rock band Third Day. It breaks from the style of the band’s previous albums to return to simple, rock and roll-driven melodies. To quote Allmusic’s review of the album, ”Third Day has stripped away the shine and gotten back to the grittiness of being a rock & roll band.” The album is largely carried by the energetic guitar riffs that pervade its songs, although the forceful lyrics also contribute significantly.
The album’s songs deal with numerous themes. ”Wire”, the title track, is a song about the pressure to succeed in modern society. ”I Believe”, ”I Got a Feeling”, ”Innocent”, and other tracks deal with sin, faith, and renewal from aChristian perspective. ”Billy Brown” is a catchy song that explores the readiness of people to follow and even idolize entertainment figures.
