Life, released in 2005, is the second full-length album by British DJ and electronic dance music composer Andy Hunter°. It may actually be considered an EP as it features only six songs, but each song's duration of +6 minutes makes up for a total playing time of 43:45.
The album's content is modeled on Hunter's own, sophisticated interpretation of the EDM patterns already established in his debut album, Exodus, while including elements similar to Nine Inch Nails. These include long tracks, strongly pounding rhythms, pulsating synths, samples of power guitar chords broken down into computer-sequenced tracks, processed vocals and, most importantly, Christian-themed lyrics, as Hunter° is known as a Christian DJ. Three of the songs use biblical quotations as lyrics ("Come on", from the Lord's Prayer, in the Gospel of Matthew, 6: 9-13; "Wonderful", from the Book of Jeremiah, 1: 5; "To Life, To Love", from the Song of Solomon, 5: 1), the other three feature original lyrics. In the CD's booklet, "you" in the non-biblical material is always written without a capital Y, but, as Hunter° has stated on his official website , the "you" in the lyrics refers to God; the songs are always intended as invocations and praises to God.
The track "Come On" was featured in the 2005 video game Burnout Revenge.
