Mommy Doesn’t Love Daddy Anymore ~Resurrection Band | Then and Now

Sometime in ’81, Resurrection Band released their sixth album, Mommy Doesn’t Love Daddy Anymore.  The title alone showed that the Chicago-based rockers weren’t afraid to address the realities of a painful world (which is something most Christian musicians are still afraid of doing).  As the title suggests, they tackled the topic of divorce, as well as, materialism, society and the disabled, and spiritual struggles.  One of the great things about this band was that they truly believed that, “Jesus brings the light into every situation” (from, “Elevator Muzik”).  Regardless of how ugly or painful the topic, these guys knew Jesus was at the heart of the answer to any problem and there wasn’t any issue His healing power couldn’t redeem.  They thrived on meeting people where they were

The album’s standouts, for me, were:  “Stark/Spare”, “Elevator Muzik”, “Alienated”, “Can’t Get You Outta My Mind”, “The Chair”, “Mommy Don’t Love Daddy Anymore”, “First Degree Apathy”, and “Lovin’ You”

Of course, that is almost every song on the album.   What can I say, it’s a solid album.
