EDITORS’ NOTES

Cotes d’Armor combines remixes from Former DC Talk member Kevin Max's Crashing Gates EP with newly-recorded material. Since launching his solo career, this gifted singer/songwriter has refused to play it safe — here, he again challenges his fans to reconsider what Christian pop/rock might be. Max adds fresh sonic colors to such Crashing Gates cuts as “Saints of Lonely Hearts” and “Future Love Songs” and punches up his signature tune "Your Beautiful Mind." The new tunes are the real points of interest, though. “Walking Through Walls (Just to Get to You)” and “Even When It Hurts” fuse ‘70s-era glam rock with ‘80s-era techno-pop, interweaving robotic beats with synthesizer flourishes and distorted vocals. “On Yer Bike!” is a particularly bracing tune with its jittery rhythms and ultra-catchy chorus. In the midst of these glossy, discordant sounds, Max portrays lost souls looking for glimpses of salvation amidst the chaos of modern life. Cotes d’Armor is another bold step into a musical zone uniquely Max's own.
