  • Point of Grace “Beautiful Name: Hymns & Worship Songs” Album Review

    In pop music, artists who have gone over the hill as far as chart successes are concerned, often resort to cutting jazz standards as a final stab at stardom.

Yet Anthem Lights are able to leave us breathless with awe with the second instalment of "Hymns."

  • Travis Cottrell “The Reason” Album Review

    One listen to Travis Cottrell's "The Reason" reveals that this veteran worship leader is not here just to sell his songs. Unlike many of his peers, Cottrell is not obsessive to recruit songs that only bear his own name on the writer's credit. He has no problem putting his own compositions side by side with Elevation Worship's "Do it Again" or Hillsong Worship's "What a Beautiful Name."
