77's Seventy Sevens - Pray Naked (Pre-Owned CD) 1992 Brainstorm

  • Pre-Owned CD in NM Cond.

Pray Naked — which was released, without the band’s knowledge, with altered packaging and a new title to keep from offending Christian music stores (the Christian music industry is/​was weird, man) — runs the gamut of musical styles. It has bluesy rockers (“Woody”), jangly pop (“Phony Eyes”), stormy alt-rock (“Self-Made Trap”), and a couple of truly heartfelt, beautiful ballads (“Kites Without Strings,” ​“The Rain Kept Falling in Love”). But thanks to the band’s stellar musicianship and performance, and Mike Roe’s soulful voice, they all feel part of a cohesive whole.

All told, Pray Naked is one of those albums that’s only grown in my estimation since I first heard it over two decades ago. Unfortunately, like so many great Christian ​“alternative” albums from the ​‘90s, it’s been overlooked and essentially out of print for years.
