  • Angelo & Veronica “The Truth” Album Review

    Few acts can cross-pollinate genres with ease and success as Angelo and Veronica. In a culture of segregation where black Gospel radio and the rest of CCM have tacit lines drawn between their artists and songs, Angelo and Veronica were one of the first artists to have hits in both camps.

  • The Nelons “The Americana Sessions” Album Review

    The word "Americana" is a genre-trawling word these days. It can be used to encompass anything from country to alternative rock to folk to rock to bluegrass to old time Gospel music. And this is how the Nelons are giving definition to this nebulous word here too.

  • Whitney Houston “I Wish You Love: More From the Bodyguard” Album Review

    Whitney Houston is called the Voice with reason. Though she did wrestle many demons in her lifetime, one thing we can't fault Houston is that she had a voice that pulverises. Every second of this 14-track CD is a glorious moment.

  • Planetshakers “Christmas Vol. 1” EP Review

    It is requite these days that Planetshakers would drop an EP every six months. Their fecundity is indeed a blessing to their fans.

  • Jon Thurlow “Different Story” Album Review

    Though comparisons can be caricature, Jon Thurlow sounds like the Elton John or Billy Joel of this generation. His way around the ivory keys of the piano meshed with the pop sensibilities of today certainly set him apart from many of his peers. Moreover, Thurlow is committed to an essential component of music that has been sidelined for far too long: the importance of a strong melodic structure.

  • Soul Survivor “The Promise” Album Review

    Soul Survivor's newest Integrity Music release "The Promise" holds lots of promising potential as far as impacting the kingdom of God is concerned. Right from the first note to the last, this album is jammed pack with Holy Spirit-moments where you can feel the hearts of the team's worship leaders, namely Tom Smith, Beth Croft, Guvna B, and Rend Collective, being given over to the Lordship of Jesus.

  • Kutless “Alpha/Omega” Album Review

    Over the course of Kutless' career, they have oscillated between hard rock and worship music. Therefore, they have had alternated between the releases of original song-albums where they would make their electric guitars work overtime and cover albums where they would take current worship staples and add their rocking signature touches to them. With this year's release, they have decided to merge their two genres together on "Alpha/Omega."

  • Hannah Kerr “Emmanuel” EP Review

    In this age of (illegal) digital downloading and streaming, it's become less and less economically viable to release a 10-track album. Nowadays, artists have to be content with the release of EPs. Though ardent fans may gripe about this, but in many cases, this has forced many singers to filter out any filler cuts. This is certainly the case with Hannah Kerr's six-song EP "Emmanuel." From the first note to the last, every song on this EP is a winner.
