It has been 10 years since the release of Derek Webb’s The Ringing Bell, and the album is as relevant now, as it was 2007.

You can always trust the devil or a politician, to be the devil or a politician, but beyond that friends you'd best beware, 'cause at the Pentagon bar they're an inseparable pair, and as long as the lobbyist are paying their bills, we'll never have a savior on capitol hill.

— The Ringing Bell A Savior on Capitol Hill

“The Ringing Bell is Derek Webb’s fourth studio album, and has a lighter musical touch than earlier material, which could tend to the dour (Webb himself has reported that live performance of previous album Mockingbird was emotionally exhausting). Lyrically Ringing Bell continues to challenge, with a particular focus this time out on peace, both personal and national. Naming the album Ringing Bell is Webb’s way of signaling the urgency and importance of living peaceably. While Webb has argued that he writes about the broad issues of peace rather than addressing any specific situation, it’s impossible not to see the ongoing conflict [at the time] in Iraq and the so-called war on terror looming large… There are repeated musical references to the Beatles’ guitar sounds and string arrangements, including the rocker `A savior on Capitol Hill’ where Webb hoarsely skewers US politics – `you can always trust the devil or a politician to be the devil or a politician’. `This too shall be made right’ closes the album in more familiar one guy and a guitar style, and is a litany of the ills of the world and yet a song of hope for the time when the Kingdom comes in fullness.”
