Sophisticated musicanship with mixed messageThe Donna Walton Gospel Network's recording of "Unbearable" by D.E.X. is impressive for its technical sophistication, musicianship from all the band members, including the lead vocal, and use of countermelody, creating a solid, professional, urban sound. There is a disconnect between the title of the song and the lyrics. The song is called "Unbearable," but nowhere in the lyrics does the message make any kind of case for anything in life being unbearable. Instead, the lyrics alternate between dogmatic and on-the-nose, as at the outset, to personal struggle, and back again, and back again. "It's not supposed to be like this" is the closest the lyrics come to expressing anything "unbearable." Would love to hear the things you are hearing and seeing that are not supposed to be like this, and why it is unbearable. Combined with the talent and competence of the artists, this could be powerful stuff.
unbearablewell produced for lovers of gospel rock and rapp from these guys from Jackson miss worthy of a few listens for sure the song appears to blend a few genres here but its an effective mix of rock,rap and gospel influences
BearableOne of the things I enjoy most about Number One Music artists is the newfound ability to hear music from around the world by singers who I'd never have the chance to listen to otherwise. That, in itself, is a great thing. Here, with this song we have a heavy metal song that vocally is funny in that its attempting to be a contemporary song with a christian message. Production does not help, though the effort is genuine and appreciated. The electronics of this are overdone.
