AllMusic Review by

The third solo outing and first full-length long-player from Thrice vocalist, lyricist, and rhythm guitarist Dustin Kensrue to be issued by Mars Hill Music and BEC Recordings, The Water & the Blood also marks the first release for the California native as the Worship Pastor of Mars Hill Church's Bellevue location. More accessible and less hard-hitting than the sonic blast emitted by pop-punk/screamo-alt-rockers Thrice, the 11-track, Brian Eichelberger-produced The Water & the Blood offers up a mix of styles, from propulsive, King of Leon-inspired Southern rock to folksy and engaging CCM pop in the vein of Newsboys and Casting Crowns.
