Review of "Against The
Review of “Against the Ledges” by Lonzo
3 Nails is the band I want to tell you guys about
this week. First of all I want to thank the guys
for sending me the stuff and I guarantee your
music will play on the Scoreboard this year. I
remember the first time my kids heard me listening
to these guys. My 11 year old daughter thought I
was listening to an act signed to a major label.
“Why aren’t they on the radio?” she asked me. My
reply….they should be! My 15 year old son wanted
it on his mp3 player as soon as we got home. I
think this says a lot for the appeal of this band
to a younger audience and to an older rocker like
myself. The music is tight! I love the mix and I
can’t say enough about 3 Nails. The sound is
current and the vocals remind me of a cross
between 12 Stones and 80’s Bad Company. (Don’t
crack on the 80’s….at least it wasn’t Disco!)
I am reviewing the cd AGAINST THE LEDGES.
TAKE ME AWAY- is a melodic plea from a broken man.
I loved the grinding guitars.
SHINE-talks about the spark that grows into a
flame raging for God. I think the bass really
stands out in this song
FORGIVE- is a heartfelt cry from a lamb that’s
HIS WILL- This song should be playing on the radio
right now. It is a balaad that prays for God’s
will and the need to get past yourself. The guitar
solo jams and chorus and melody sticks with you.
FIRE- starts off with accoustic guitar and then
kicks it with electric in parts to drive home the
point of being on fire for God. I’ve gotta tell
you that I go around the house singing this chorus
all the time.
FEEL- this song speaks of a prodigal return and I
think the drums really stand out.
GIVE UP- is God speaking to someone with a
hardened heart. Unfortunately, we’ve all been
BREATHE FOR ME- is God asking for a life lived for
Him. The bass player rips it up on this song.
RECLAIMED- is a longing for rebirth. This is
beautiful and moving in a way that I can’t
explain. It is a song that is felt more than
heard. The piano is haunting and the strength of
the vocals have to be experienced. I think this
could be number one on the charts.
INSIDE OUT- is a rocking way to end the cd.
Selling out for God brings about change that the
world must recognize.
I can’t say enough about these guys and I hope
that we get to jam someday. If you want to check
them out (and you really should), go to
