  • 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."

  • Jordan Feliz “Future” Album Review

    The future may be uncertain and filled with serendipitous twists and turns, but this is not so with Jordan Feliz's "Future." This album is the poster child of CCM music today.

  • All Sons and Daughters “The All Sons and Daughters Collection” Album Review

    Not too long ago, Integrity Music broke the template when it came to worship music. They signed two left-of-center acts, namely Rend Collective and All Sons and Daughters. Both teams had sounds that were tangent to the predominantly rock-based norm then. At the risk of caricature, they have carved a nu-folk niche that opens up a rustic vestige to worship music that was refreshing and different.

  • I AM THEY “Trial and Triumph” Album Review

    For a worship album that doesn't bypass the complexities of life's trials and for a record that praises God with a realistic joy, I AM THEY's sophomore album has it all. This is indeed a stellar worship album; you can forget the sophomore slum when it comes to I AM THEY.

  • Passion “Whole Heart” Album Review

  • MercyMe "I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best of MercyMe" Album Review

    MercyMe made talking about heaven and the afterlife cool again. Within the milieu of Western society, no topic scatters a crowd quicker than talking about death. But in 2001, MercyMe burst onto the musical scene and top the charts with a party pooper. "I Can Only Image" is one of the most sober and most celebratory treatise of heaven on this side of the Millennium. The song was unequivocally embraced by almost every genre of music, from AC to rock to pop to Christian and even country, making it the group's signature song!

  • Guy Penrod “Blessed Assurance” Album Review

    "Blessed Assurance" is part of this cycle as Penrod again revisits 11 hymns done in his inimitable country style. There's nothing wrong with a hymns album except that this is Penrod's third one with each released only a couple of years apart. Does Guy Penrod seriously want to make his career out of merely singing hymns and songs associated with other acts?
