Great CD...a must have. / 5
Before this cd, there were 3 cds: in order, Read All About It, Hell Is For Wimps, and Boys Will Be Boyz. However, after Read All About It, they were advised not to continue their musical career. Thank God they didn't. This cd is unbelievable.
The Newsboys took a turn for the better after Boys Will Be Boyz, and they couldn't have taken that turn without Steve Taylor, the brilliant writer who has helped write many of their songs over their long career. With Steve Taylor also came an adoption of the early 90's pop/rock sound, resulting in a drastic makeover of the Newsboys that would define their style as it still is. Another difference in this cd is the lead vocals are shared between Peter Furler and John James, instead of mostly lead by James. Sadly, eventually, the Newsboys would lose James. It's almost as if they tried to prepare you for that truth for 3 cds, as Going Public and Take Me To Your Leader were also vocally shared.
Between the sellable Boys Will Be Boyz and their ridiculously popular Going Public came Not Ashamed. They didn't have Jody Davis at this point, so guitars were not yet there. Some guitars were played, but with Furler on drums, Taylor on bass, Pryor on keys, and James on lead vocals, there was no guitar player. Luckily, they got Davis in time for Going Public, which is musically twice as good as any of their previous albums.
Not Ashamed is musically fine, as far as early 90's music goes, and lyrically genius. For evidence, check out lyrics for Lost The Sky Again, Strong Love, and I Cannot Get You Out Of My System.
Graced with a few slow-ish songs, but mostly great upbeat pop/rock (but more pop than rock) anthems, this album is genius and will get you positive immediately, and after a while will get you hooked on the Newsboys. I would compare it to Going Public or a 90's version of Thrive. This cd is a must have, both lyrically and musically.

Song "The Tide"
think I'll wait for the tide
seems it's all I can do right now
there must be a reason
I've run aground
I'll wait for the waves
to come
by the moon and the tide
like a man and his bride
I will wait
on you, Lord
and we will run so far from here
to in the storm
there is courage for the simple man
to the holders of secrets and scars
learning to stand with reaching arms
we'll wait till the very last
no matter what will be
you're always good
always good
to me
