Taff's edgy, bluesy, emotion-packed vocals on "Make Me Whole" and "Somebody's Coming" are great matches of voice, music and lyrics. One of the weaker matches is the title cut, "Right Here, Right Now. On "Lazarus," telling the story of a river baptism, Taff shows that he can handle southern rock with just the right degree of funk. Those who have followed Taff's songwriting and selection over the years will find some familiar themes on this album.
This is NOT Christian triumphalism. For Taff, life is about broken, hurting, sinful people reaching out desperately for healing and strength. It begins with a recording of the elder Taff fervently preaching, his voice tearing through the air -- eerily connecting him with this Lazarus - Russ Taff - Right Here Taff, foreshadowing a connection for which the younger Taff longingly hopes and sings.
Given Taff's "dark" expression of Christianity, the final cut on the album is especially appropriate. Musically, on the other hand, it is unique among the songs Taff has written and performed. It begins with no music, just Taff reading the Christology from the Nicene creed. A dark, John Tesh-like orchestration evokes the passion and suffering of Christ.
God's triumph, and the triumph of the "broken and beat down" whom he calls, comes through the "terrible price" of the cross. Its dark shadow reaches "from the dawn of creation to the end of it all. Having been a huge fan is Russ Taff's for 15 years now, I eagerly await any new album. His music Quando Eri Mia - Alvaro E Filippo - Guitars Cocktail seems so personal, like the songs really mean something to him.
His voice is a good as ever. The songs are typical Taff. The only misstep is one called 'Things Will Be Different' which lyrically is out of place here, but a decent song.
The final song, 'Shadow of the Cross' is in three 'movements', and is like nothing on any of his other albums. Very dramatic, very passionate, and very well done. This guy is awesome.
Thanks, Russ Taff, for finally coming back. May you sell enough albums to continue recording, but not enough to ruin you. God bless you. I remember seeing Russ Taff at an outside Christian concert venue.
He truly stood out among all the pop syrupy cultural copy cats. A classy show. Russ is perhaps one of Right Now most talented singers in the Christian fish bowl.
A truly respectable artist -Good to have ya back Russ! I first came across Russ Taff years ago in a Christian music sale. I'd never heard of him, since I live in UK, but I bought the record anyway. Since then, the amazing music, the honesty and passion of his lyrics, coupled with a superb singing voice, have made me a fan. I was so excited to hear about this new album. I've not been disappointed.
Taff's music is impossible to pigeon-hole and this album is a typical example. Just when you think you've pinned him down to one style, he changes to another. It's not just good Christian music, it's good music in any context.
If you've never heard it, you're missing a treat. I don't know why he is so little known in Britain, but if people heard this album, I think he'd be a household name. Right Now say too much except "He's done it again! I loved all the songs, especially "Shadow of Right Now Cross" and was filled with the Spirit as he sang. Up there with "Walls of Glass", my favorite of Russ', which is now out of print. Just a little plug for bringing that one Right Now Russ' music is classy and real.
I love Russ Taff. Lazarus - Russ Taff - Right Here God for him and his talent, but this CD disappointed me greatly. With spectacular CDs in the past which matched his great vocals with spectacular, annointed songs eg.
Under Their Influence - a cd of covers - sadly the songwriters are not credited, and The Way Homethis one struck me as relatively void of the same calibre of material. I have really enjoyed this album. You can really tell Saving Wing - The Lidocaine - On The Road To Miero Russ put his heart into the Lazarus - Russ Taff - Right Here album.
