Impactful CCM Albums: Roadside Monument, Eight Hours Away from Being a Man (1997)
Roadside Monument’s Eight Hours Away from Being a Man chimed with my emotional state—not least because of the line in the song ‘Crop Circles’: ‘Where are all my friends?’ Despite being at King’s College London at the height of the Colin Gunton era and having some good and close friends (most of whom I’m still good and close friends with today), I remember how much this lyric captured (so I thought) this period of my life. It’s a shame I don’t really remember much about why it summed up this period! Either way, Eight Hours Away from Being a Man was on repeat play.
