Osenga’s Three Act Musical

December 11, 2007

On Caedmon’s Call’s latest release – Overdressed, Andrew Osenga sings on three songs that work out to a be a three act play.  I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but it’s neat anyway.

“Expectations” is about church advertising and how the actual church is nothing like the billboards.  Go figure.

“Hold the Light” is about man dealing with a ton of unmet expectations, sin, and pain and the friend that encourages him through it.

“Start Again” is a cry for God to grant a new start: hope to start again.

Even though Andrew sounds like a mix of Derek Webb and Tom Petty, I like his writing and contributions to the Caedmon’s Call colllective.  It’s good to have Derek back on this record as well. After listening to it 5 times in a row,  I have given it an A-, versus the C+ I had originally judged it.
