Indie rock foursome Beyond’s unique debut album release,
" The world means you to God " [TWMYTG] heralds the band’s confident and timely arrival on the world’s Indie Gospel Music scene.
This debut album typifies the musical message that has become Beyond. Delivered with an honesty of Spirit, the tracks convey an unfamiliar tone to familiar claims and express growing personal faith as the building block to greater unity in God’s purposes.
Formed in 2002 the band has relied on prayerful focus and Spirit-led direction to release a resounding and reflective collection of tracks that considers life in the light of the Gospel. In a world forgetting about God this band asks for involvement, merits reaction and defies the normality of growing Christian apathy.
’The World Means You To God’ - Album Reviews:
posted Friday 21st July 2006:
An indie rock band from Northern Ireland, Beyond are on bright new independent label 12tribe. The pace throughout ’The World Means You To God’ is slow and thought-provoking, whilst the atmosphere remains ethereal and worshipful.
It’s unlike anything I’m used to listening to, and therefore at the start of the disc I wanted something a bit more upbeat. However slowly but surely I started to appreciate the music further and allowed myself to relax and just take it in.
The fact of the matter is that once I’d opened my mind to this kind of music, my heart followed soon after (there’s an analogy in there somewhere!) and the music touched my spirit in a beautiful way.
By putting a testimony on track eight ("Broken"), the listener is just about ready for a change in direction - it came along just at the right time. It’s a powerful testimony of a man who came off drugs with the help of Jesus. An intriguing release with the ability to touch people’s hearts. ALBUM RATING: 8 / 10 * * * * * * * *

New Gospel indie rock foursome Beyond have released their debut album and for all those looking for a new contemplative sound in Christian music this is worth a listen.
The World Means You to God is the debut album from Scottish/Irish newcomers Beyond and is the answer to anyone praying for a fresh dose of good Christian indie music.
The band describe their coming together as haphazard and that is certainly the feeling of the album which brings together a rather unsorted collection of rock and indie lamentations.
The slightly melancholy overtones of this album mean it is certainly not to everyone’s taste, particularly if you are more into the familiar spirit-lifting Chris Tomlin-style praise. But it is something that particularly young soul-searchers will enjoy, whether Christian or not.
What comes through the songs is the deep realisation of the guys behind the music; these are four young Christians who have genuinely realised how lost and painful this world is without Christ and they mourn that.
Hence, ‘Broken’, the testimony of a converted former drug addict set against music which seems to express everything the band want to say to the world through their music. All in all, this album is a testimony to the only answer for all the world’s problems: Christ.
One of the liveliest songs on the album is ‘Won’t Leave Me Lonely’, a symbol clashing rock anthem that resembles a slightly heavier version of the unrefined sounds of sixties rock and tracks like ‘I’m not like everybody else’ by The Kinks
But the quieter, more reflective compositions, some of which verge into the psychedelic, fill up the bulk of the album and this is where their true strength lies. ‘Warcry’, ‘Who Could Stand’, ‘Feel It Inside’, ‘My Jesus My Hero’ are just some of the tracks particularly worth a listen. It is in these songs, as varied as they are, that the band really seem to find their feet and their talent as song makers can really shine through.
What is great about The World Means You to God is that this album leaves plenty of room for growth and development. Each track on the album provides the listener with a snapshot of what more the band is undoubtedly capable of. We are only left with higher expectations of what fruit the band will produce for album number two.

Urban-rock foursome Beyond have an endearing, raw music-sound that appeals to young folks’ taste and to the average rock-philosophizer’s appetite!
Originality is here. It’s refreshing hearing unfamiliar perspectives expressed with a different edge like TWMYTG*. What is that you ask? Look again at the impact of the album title. It’s a great title and a great truth! Always philosophizing, never sentimentalizing, all tracks tickled my ears and interest. Songs usually aspire to somewhat simple basic themes throughout.
Uncomplicated and competent, this rougher kind of urban-rock nowadays is to be cherished. It is a seed-bed consecrated environment so listen with joy to Beyond.
