    Three years have passed since Kingdom Heirs last released their last Christmas album. Within such an interim, this Southern Gospel veteran band has had experienced quite a few tabloid-worthy upheavals.

  • Amy Grant “Tennessee Christmas” Album Review

    Reflective of her three trimester, "Tennessee Christmas" is not a hurried affair. Every song here is warmly executed with the soft shimmering of acoustic instruments. Though there are uptempos, they are not overpowered by zany guitar riffs or ear-popping drum blasts. Rather each song takes its time to bring out something special about Christmas, its meaning, its traditions, and its celebrations.

  • Triumphant “He is Christmas” Album Review

    With no wasted moments and no one-dimensional characters, every note on this record re-tells the story of Christmas in ways that make us appreciate and feel the importance of the season. Both elements, appreciating and feeling, are quintessential to a Christmas album. On one hand, a good Christmas is more than just a fuzz-inducing affair.

  • Hillsong Worship “Let There Be Light” Album Review

    Taking its cue from Genesis 1:3 is Hillsong Worship's titular "Let There Be Light." And in at least three ways, this album is a return to the group's grassroots genesis

  • Hoppers “Life is Good” Album Review

    "Life is Good" is a labor of love. Spending five years fine-tuning this album with the late Lari Goss on the producer's chair, this brand new Daywind Records is a specimen of what a fine record ought to sound like.

  • Paul Baloche “Your Mercy” Album Review

    Other than Darlene Zschech, Paul Wilbur and Graham Kendrick, Paul Baloche is the only worship leader from the Integrity Music's Hosanna to be still recording for the imprint. Such a lengthy tenure with Integrity Music speaks volumes of Baloche's ability to stay current and find fresh vocabulary and expressions of worship.

  • Prestonwood Worship “Songs of the People” Album Review

    Progressively, worship songs have become more like individual solo performances with the mandatory clapping tagged at the beginning and ending of each song. Even the lyrics of many of these offerings have become so "me'-centered that they become more like testimonial paeans than the church's collective expressions of worship. Prestonwood Worship seeks to rectify such an inclination.

  • Bradley Walker “Call Me Old-Fashioned” Album Review

    Bradley Walker is a storyteller par excellence. When he sings a story song, he gets into the skin of his protagonists and gives each character a three dimensional persona. He has a way of making each scene of the story happen before our eyes. Not only are we given front row seats to the reeling of these stories but we get to feel every emotion expressed through its characters.

  • Crowder “American Prodigal” Album Review

    Crowder is a national icon. He's in a class of his own as far as sound, identity, and even his appearance are concerned. Donning a ZZ-Top-esque looking beard with his dusted snug baseball cap, Crowder looks more like a throwback 60s hippie than a worship leader. Likewise, his music defies categorization

  • Mosaic MSC “Glory and Wonder” Album Review

    The protocol these days is that most mega churches will get an offer to release a worship album. Marketing research has demonstrated that if a mere 10% of such church attendees were to purchase a single copy of the release, the record company would have recuperated the album's cost. And even if the album never sells a copy outside the church's walls, they still will not incur any loss.
