Fearful Symmetry is the seventh studio album by Christian alternative rock band Daniel Amosissued on Frontline Records in Chronicles album cycle and the first of three albums the band issued under the shortened moniker DA.
Fearful Symmetry is a lush, synthesizer driven pop album, lyrically wrapped in puzzles that the listener has to decipher. Nearly every song on Fearful Symmetry in some way deals with pain or darkness - from the William Blake -inspired "Sleep Silent Child", a song about death, to "Strong Points, Weak Points", a song about doubt. The album title comes from a line in The Tyger by Wm. The album ends on an upbeat note however, with the touching ballad, "Beautiful One". The band raised eyebrows on the tour that followed each release, by presenting a full multimedia event complete with video screens synchronized to the music, something that was unusual in the early s for any band.

Chronicles Book set in Shadow Catcher - DA* - Fearful Symmetry The Book Set included three CDs, over Shadow Catcher - DA* - Fearful Symmetry of lyrics, photos, liner notes, essays, interviews and other information in a hardcover book.
