The Roar of Love

The Roar of Love is a 1980 concept album and fourth studio album by Christian band 2nd Chapter of Acts, that tells the story of the first book in the The Chronicles of Narnia, a series by C. S. Lewis. According to band member Matthew Ward, all the vocals were cut in a bedroom of the house the trio lived in at the time. They converted their garage into a mixing room, knocked a hole in the bedroom wall and ran a microphone cord into it. The songs have a heavy use of synthesizers, which were monophonic at the time. It was reissued on the Live Oak label.
