    No Better Cause: Arrival

    No Better Cause describe themselves as a "five-man pop/rock/funk/Christian a cappella group out of the heartland of America, Lincoln, Nebraska." Although there are some very fine covers on their debut CD "Arrival," notably Sade's "Smooth Operator," Kansas' 'Dust in the Wind," DC Talk's "In The Light," a unky, rhythmic "Rock My Soul" and Earth, Wind & Fire's "Let's Groove;" some of our favorites among these 13 songs are originals, "Q-U-E-E-N," written and composed by group members Lucas Kellison and T.J. Saddler, the powerful "Times Like These" (which won "Best Original Song" at the the 2005 Rocky Mountain Harmony Sweeps Regional), "Valentine," "The Way It Should Be" and "If God Is My Witness," written and composed by group member Nate Kellison. Strong vocal percussion, fresh, innovative arrangements, first-class original material, rich, sweet harmonies-there's a lot to like here. Fast-rising nbc has delighted audiences all across the Midwest, and the aptly-named "Arrival" tells us they're ready to join the elite American Contemporary a cappella groups.

    No Better Cause: Perfect Peace

    Lincoln, Nebraska's Contemporary Christian male quintet No Better Cause knocked us out with "Sanctuary," and now bring us an amazing Christmas album, "Perfect Peace." The group's refreshingly funky vocal percussion side is evident on most of these 11 group-arranged standards, on songs like "Carol of the Bells," the wonderfully arranged "Little Drummer Boy," "Perfect Peace," "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." The sweet, soulful side we loved on "Sanctuary" is still here, on "Silent Night," "O, Holy Night" and "The First Noel." There's also a pair of nice originals, Fred Hammond's "We Sing Glory," and group member Lucas Kellison's very fine "World Stops." The bottom line here is, we love these guys, and "Perfect Peace" is a joyful Christmas treat from beginning to end!

    No Better Cause: Sanctuary

    No Better Cause is an award-winning pop/soul/funk vocal band from Lincoln, Nebraska. These 5 young men use nothing but their voices to create a full, rich sound on this collection of Gospel, Spirituals and Contemporary Christian tunes. NBC's strong vocal percussion and cutting-edge arrangements are clear on cuts like "Ride The Chariot," "Shut De Do," very funky takes on the spiritual "Wade in the Water" and "Joshua Fit The Battle of Jericho," "Awesome God," the finger-popping "Oh Happy Day," "Immeasurable," "Shine Down," and "Goin' Up A Yonder." Their soulful side comes through equally strongly on "People Get Ready," the title tune, the inspirational hymn "It is Well With My Soul," "I Want Jesus to Walk With Me" and a beautifully arranged "Doxology." We like No Better Cause's energy, sweet harmonies and their spirited mix of driving, rhythmic pieces with slower, soulful hymns. Fifteen well crafted songs, where the Contemporary Christian message matches the vocals and vocal percussion in power and clarity. "Sanctuary" is wonderful stuff from talented, fast rising No Better Cause!
