The road to Mainstays sophomore album from BEC Recordings, Become Who You Are, was not the path of ease, least resistance, or even just convenience. But the Minneapolis-based modern rock quartet is fine with that, according to front man Justin Anderson, as they simply mined the challenges of life to add to the albums already significant potency. Band members Anderson, drummer Ryan DeYounge, guitarist Scott Campbell, and bassist Dan Ostebo have traveled from their early suburban garage beginnings, through a more sophisticated season as a college band, to land finally at widespread interest and acclaim from audiences. So they know a bit already about growing pains. Their 2006 debut album, Well Meaning Fiction, came out of the gate fast and hard, making a resounding impact with singles Take Away and These Pages before landing the band on the short list of the years best new artists, compiled by Jesusfreakhideout.com.

The debut brought the rockers respect from fans and industry insiders alike for their unflinching willingness to both address the church and make themselves personally vulnerable. Along with more riveting guitar riffs and madly melodic songwriting, Become Who You Are continues the boldly open trend, and for all the right reasons. If were going to do this, shares Anderson, it has to be about God, about the deeply intimate relationship were experiencing. Otherwise, its not worth it, he admits laughingly.

    Strong songwriting, youthfull looks yet a mature sense of direction with disciplined structure to your songs. Nicely mastered. You may go fwd....your choice....with or without God. From a musician who appreciates good music but is cautious of religion. My boat is available for a video, which you need, right ? Strangely my company is mainstaysailing in Cayman Islands, when you need a break. Jon D www.mainstaysailing.com Mar 25
