Music / The Roar Of Love

Go To

The Roar of Love is the fourth album by the Christian band Second Chapter Of Acts, originally published in 1980, with a collectors series rerelease releasing in 1991. It is a Concept Album based on the classic book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis.

The vocals for the album were recorded in a bedroom of the house the trio was staying in at the time, with them punching a hole in a wall for the mic cord, which led to a improvised mixing room in the garage. Most of the songs were entirely written by band member Annie Herring with the exception of the final song, which was a group effort between the entire band.

Each track flows directly into the next one, making the entire album one thirty-five minute song in a sense.

Tropes Include:

Concept Album: The album is essentially the story of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in song.

Eat Dirt, Cheap: There's a line mentioning referencing a variation of this, from The Silver Chair.

And you can drink diamonds I've been told

Endless Winter: Discussed in Christmas, Where Are You?, where it talks about the near maddening effects that a winter like that would cause.

Jumped at the Call: The first line of the album suggests this:

Singer: Are you going to Narnia? Take me along with you!

Love Potion: The song Turkish Delight (and, to a lesser extent, Tell The Truth) implies that the titular treat worked like a Downplayed version of this trope, causing Edmund to admire the White Witch to the point that he couldn't go against her wishes, even though on some level he still knew that what he was doing was wrong.

Narnia Time / Year Inside, Hour Outside: The entirety of the second song:

Didn't you miss me? I was so long gone.

Sentient Stars: There's a reference to hearing them sing during the creation of Narnia.
