Young contemporary Christian quintet from Washington state, who obviously know their Motown soul. As such, they don't sound much like fellow Christian groups like the AVB or Rescue; Heaven's Playground place less emphasis on state-of-the-art production and multitracking, and more on punchy rhythms and vertically structured harmonies. This is within the context of songs such as 'Sir Duke,' 'Fly Away' (written by Cedric Dent), and the guitar-accompanied 'Workin' For Da Man,' which should become a rockabilly cult classic - very cool minor chord derived harmonies give it the feel of genuine lament. The recitation intro of 'Have You Seen Her,' along with the arrangement and even the stylistic inflections, are an uncannily accurate rendering of 1960's doo-wop/soul. The final track? That pillar of the barbershop pantheon, 'Coney Island Baby.' These guys are fun.
