  • Selah “Unbreakable” Album Review

    Selah's "Unbreakable" makes the listening experience pleasurable by avoiding one perennial error. Unlike many of their peers, they are not myopic.

  • Joseph Habedank “Resurrection” Album Review

    The success or the failure of a concept album all gravitates around the concept. Sometimes the major theme that gives definition to the whole project can be far too light-hearted or far too novel, making the album sound frivolous and unimportant.

  • Greg Sykes “Reverse” EP Review

    Ardent fans of worship music would have been impressed by the name Greg Sykes. In our age of individualism where the "self" is prime, we have often shielded ourselves from the persecuted church. But not Sykes.

  • Laura Story “Open Hands” Album Review

    Every Laura Story album has at least one story that completely pulverizes. Each of her preceding record has at least one song that jumps right out of the speakers and lingers with you for the longest haul. Who could forget her signature ballad and title tune of her 2013 effort "Blessings"?

    Nathan Jess writes with a pastor's heart. Few worship leaders and songwriters today take the time to ruminate upon the deep recesses of the human heart.

  • Darlene Zschech “Here I Am Send Me” Album Review

    Cancer squirms in the face of its Maker. "Here I Am Send Me" is Darlene Zschech's first album since her tumultuous bout with breast cancer. Here you will not find the former Hillsong Worship Pastor wallowing in pain or regrets. Rather, what you hear a child of God who has seen the Shepherd in the shadow of death and has lived to testify to it.

  • Various Artists “The Shack: Music From and Inspired By the Original Motion Picture” Album Review

    Movie soundtracks are a tricky affair. Some soundtracks chronicle their songs so tightly around the film's story line that they give expressions to the various turning points of the narrative's plotline. Then there are other soundtracks where the songs are only loosely based on the movie's storyline.
