Incredible debut. Stellar song writing and playing.

When I was first introduced to Christian music in general, it just happened to be a lot of rock bands were signed to Frontline Records and their imprint label, Intense Records. While it took me a while to warm up to some bands, it didn't take me long to appreciate the man behind the vocals of Shout...Ken Tamplin.

To this day I'm amazed as his vocal abilities. I recently caught a YouTube video of Ken covering Stryper's classic tune, Soldiers Under Command, and let me tell you he still sounds awesome. Oh yeah, he's a pretty good guitar player too.

I've always thought of Shout as more of a studio effort than an actual band. Shout would go on to record two albums for Frontline and have one "best of" album. Ken would go on to record several solo albums before comprising the awesome bands Magdallan and the band simply known as Tamplin.

Listening to this album again has been a blast, however I'm far more familiar with the 2nd half of the album. I owned the cassette much longer than I have owned the CD, so that probably explains why songs such as "Shout" are "Showdown" some of my favorite songs. I have to admit this album hasn't aged well, but it doesn't mean that it isn't good. I can only wonder what this album would sound like if Ken didn't also supply his vocals to the background. Chuck are Loren are both credited as helping in the background vocal department, but Ken's voice is so overpowering it almost sounds if this is a one man show at times.

KMG Records later reissued both It Won't Be Long and In Your Face on one disc and can still be found online for less than $15. The original Frontline releases may run you a little more, but no matter how you intend on purchasing the album, it's a solid effort that deserves at least one listen. Ken Tamplin may not be your favorite artist/musician, but the guy is wildly talented and it seems as if his vocals will never age!

It Won't Be Long ()

Go, go, one chance to make it known
One way to break away or the heart will
turn to stone
Rock, rock, that's what I'm standing on
Oh Lord make it right and Your light'll
carry on

It won't be long, when all will be made
known
It wpn't be long, year we'll face it one
by one
It won't be long, give your hope to
carry on
Oh come one and sing along

High, life, they say the stong survive
Don't care 'bout all that jive no one
makes it out alive
Reap, sow, oh yeah it's all I know
One more for the curtain call gotta
face that fall alone

It won't be long, when all will be made
known
It wpn't be long, year we'll face it one
by one
It won't be long, give your hope to
carry on
Are you ready

No it won't be long,
When all teh clounds roll back and we'll
be gone
Yeah we'll face it one by one
Oh come on and sing along

It won't be long
It won't be long
It won't be long
It won't be long
