  • Sam Hibbard “Higher Ground” EP Review

    It's almost extinct these days to hear some such Christ-exalting lyrics coming out of a mouth of a 19 year-old. Instead of giving in to the mindless impulses of raging hormones like most of his peers do, Sam Hibbard in his song "In the Waiting" sings about how God works in us in our waiting. And instead of murmuring in our waiting, Hibbard's choice of response is to first seek Christ's righteousness.

  • Holly Starr “Human” Album Review

    "Human" is conterminously an appropriate titular as well as the most incongruous title for Holly Starr's latest release. Given that many of the songs reflect Starr's own personal life, such as her recent marriage ("Umbrella") and recent passing of her grandmother ("Sailing"), this album is most aptly titled in this regard. No song on this record is ever devoid of Starr's personal fingerprints.

  • Sandra McCracken "Steadfast Live" Album Review

    If you have ever wondered what Emmylou Harris would sound like if she were to cut a worship album, you don't have to wonder anymore. With that deep southern rawness that used to occupy the honky tonk singers of yore, there is rustic Emmylou-Harris charm to worship leader Sandra McCracken's voice.

  • Point of Grace “Our Recollections: 25th Anniversary Collection” Album Review

    How times have changed. Once upon a time when Point of Grace was Word Records' gold card, they flew the quartet on the Dallas Mavericks' DC-9 jet to five different cities in one day just to promote their album.

  • Jesus Culture “Love Has a Name” Album Review

    If there is an adjective that best describes Jesus Culture's brand new live album, it's the word "big."

  • Vertical Church “Vertical Church” Album Review

    After 4 live albums, Vertical Church surprises fans by dropping their debut studio studio album. But before fans get overly excited over this release, this is essentially a "greatest hits" collection with songs being re-recorded with different lead vocalists and reimagined with slightly different arrangements.

  • Alisa Turner “Alisa Turner” EP Review

    Alisa Turner has a voice that pulverizes. With a striking clarity of a Jenn Johnson, a worshipping lilt of Darlene Zschech, and an undergirding Holy-Spirit-power of Kim Walker-Smith, Tuner makes you stop and worship along when she sings. One of the reasons why Turner is such an attention grabber is because she has the uncanny ability of expressing both joy and suffering in her nuances.

  • Fernando Ortega “Crucifixion of Jesus” Album Review

    To borrow a cliché: they don't make concept albums like Fernando Ortega's "Crucifixion of Jesus" anymore. You can hardly find albums these days where each song contributes a vital part to the album's storyline. Unadulterated by the insatiable want for radio hits or the tyranny to be hip, "Crucifixion of Jesus" is a meditative set where liturgy and contemporary balladry meet.
