Scarecrow Messiah by Bride

"Scarecrow Messiah" was the third album in a series of three for Star Song. In seeing that this was the last album that Bride was contracted to due for Star Song, Star Song began to put a lot of pressure on Bride to re-sign to another multiple album record deal. Unfortunately, the deal that Star Song offered Bride was no better than their current one, and Bride felt their worth had gone up since the popularity of "Snakes In The Playground". There were many delays in recording and releasing this album. Bride actually went to California and started recording "Scarecrow Messiah" with producers John and Dino Elefante without Star Song's consent. Once the project was under way, Star Song had no choice but to sanction the project and start paying the bills for it. Although this album was widely accepted by the Bride audience and won Bride a DOVE Award for Metal Album of the Year, it made no in-roads to reach additional fans. Once again, Bride felt it was time to change their musical style alittle. The line-up for this album was the same as for the last two releases.

It was never easy for the Thompson brothers to follow up such a great album as "Snakes In The Playground", but they did a pretty good job after all. I quite like this album! Certaintly better than "Kinetic Faith" and the next few ones. This album has it's own sound, as most albums do, but it also have some great songs. "Beast", "Scarecrow" and "One" is fantastic songs that really rocks. But the album is solid all the way through, IMO, all the songs are either good or very good (maybe without the little "rap" song at the end lol).

4 stars for this. Really good CD this. I say it's their 2nd best of the 90's.

Scarecrow (3:51)

Jesus, much like the scarecrow, is there for protection. The world views Jesus as hollow and lifeless; however, He is the light of the world for all who have the courage to believe. Jesus on the cross weathered the storm of all mankind's sins. He stood alone as a gift of love to the world."

There you stand, arms out and wide
Like forbidden fruit to the squinting eyes
Gather us together under your almighty wings
Bruise the head and see what tomorrow brings

Scarecrow, all alone
Scarecrow, bring your children home

Hand to the plow, forgiving multitudes
Give them compassion, why are they afraid of you
Proud at the altar, vain before the throne
If you are blameless throw the stone

Scarecrow, all alone
Scarecrow, bring your children home

Betrayed by a friend, hung out to dry
Alone in the end, stretched across the sky
Eclipse the sun, they know not what they do
They say if God is love why would He be so cruel
