  • Hillsong Young & Free “III” Album review

    Although Young and Free (Y&F) share the same moniker "Hillsong," it is quite a different entity compared to their older counterparts such as Hillsong Worship & UNITED. Y&F, as the titular suggests, is the youth worship team of the Australian megachurch. And it is helmed by the church's global pastor Brian Houston's daughter Laura Toggs.

  • Joel Vaughn “Control Vol. 1” EP Review

  • Greater Vision “Life is a Song” Album Review

    It's a challenge to say anything depreciative about a Greater Vision album. Over the last 28 years, the trio but now a quartet has perfected their signature sound. Not only are they seamless in their harmonies, they also exude individuality when they each tackle their parts.

  • Javen “Grace” Album Review

    Too often Gospel music can be too presumptuous. With a tiny hook that last for only a few seconds, many songwriters think they can sloppily extend that into a six or seven minute song padding it with fluff. This has given the genre a bad reputation of producing more ab libs than carefully thought out melodic structures. Javen is a rare exception.

  • Koryn Hawthorne “Unstoppable” Album Review

    Contestants of singing competitions shows often get unfairly caricatured into karaoke singers. And when they released their own albums, fans and critics alike hope they can replicate the same kind of cover songs that first brought them to fame. Three years after appearing on "The Voice," finalist Koryn Hawthorne has finally released her debut full-length album via RCA Inspiration.

  • Plumb “Beautifully Broken” Album Review

    Despite copious criticisms artists have had often (mis)fired against Curb Records, most of Plumb's albums under the imprint (save her previous album) were top-notched. There was an air of artistic mysticism pulsating underneath her brand of synth-rock that was somehow fascinating, alluring, and ultimately addictive. Every album Plumb released then was an event.

  • Here Be Lions “Only a Holy God” Album Review

    In his iconic portrayal of Jesus as Aslan the Lion, C. S. Lewis has rightly described Christ as good, yet he's not safe. The same can be said of Here Be the Lion's debut album for Integrity Music, "Only a Holy God."

  • The Isaacs “Favorites: Revisited by Request” Album Review

    Music, like fashion, computers and food, have expiration dates. The synth-heavy sound of early 90s worship music, for example, is enough to cause a Millennial to squirm. Similarly, what is in vogue today will inevitably cause goosebumps for people a generation later. After more than 30 years in the music business and after having prodigious albums and radio singles, it makes sense for the Isaacs to give an update of their best-known songs from years passed.

  • Endless Highway “East to West” Album Review

    Two factors work to accentuate Endless Highway's new album to greatness. First, kudos are in order to producer Jeff Collins. Never resorting to package each song with a factory-made wrapping, Collins has had spent time to ruminate and understand each track before dressing each of them in its unique tailor-fitted sound. This means you won't hear a "same-ness" across the record.

  • LIFE Worship “Speak to the Storm” Album Review

    LIFE Worship knows how to major on the majors on this new project. Rather than treating their songs as palettes of spiritualised romantic scribblings where the trite gets the cynosure, these 13 songs give articulation to some of the most salient doctrines of the church.
