This third release from the O.C. Supertones finds the Christian ska band exploring familiar themes of faith, devotion, and love of God within a wholly inviting framework of bouncy pop/rock rhythms and catchy melodies. The high gloss production of Garth Richardson (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine) and engineer Darren Grahn (Metallica, Bryan Adams) imbues Chase the Sun with a unique musical versatility that succeeds on all counts. Matt Morginsky sings with meditative humility on "Refuge," impresses with straight dub on "Away from You" and ventures into hip-hop on the album's title track. Blending diverse tunes with consistent quality, the O.C. Supertones manage to make good music as they spread the Good Word.
