  • Gateway “Monuments” Album Review

    Standing at the gateway of feeding the church with her vocabulary of worship are Bethel Music, Darlene Zschech, Jesus Culture, Housefires, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong Worship, Matt Redman, Passion Worship and Gateway. These are the teams and artists that have been most influential in shaping the church's praise. Thus, any release coming from these names are paramount in terms of their theology and musical expressions.

  • Michael English “Love is the Golden Rule” Album Review

    When was the last time you heard a couple of Ray Charles’ covers and the 80s synth-pop music of Mike and the Mechanics on a Southern Gospel release? Michael English is perhaps the uncanny exception.

    Over the years, Hillsong Church has had nurtured countless protégés who have had carved out successful solo careers for themselves.

  • Sam Hibbard “Higher Ground” EP Review

    It's almost extinct these days to hear some such Christ-exalting lyrics coming out of a mouth of a 19 year-old. Instead of giving in to the mindless impulses of raging hormones like most of his peers do, Sam Hibbard in his song "In the Waiting" sings about how God works in us in our waiting. And instead of murmuring in our waiting, Hibbard's choice of response is to first seek Christ's righteousness.

  • Holly Starr “Human” Album Review

    "Human" is conterminously an appropriate titular as well as the most incongruous title for Holly Starr's latest release. Given that many of the songs reflect Starr's own personal life, such as her recent marriage ("Umbrella") and recent passing of her grandmother ("Sailing"), this album is most aptly titled in this regard. No song on this record is ever devoid of Starr's personal fingerprints.

  • Mark Lowry “What’s Not to Love?” Album Review

  • Sandra McCracken "Steadfast Live" Album Review

    If you have ever wondered what Emmylou Harris would sound like if she were to cut a worship album, you don't have to wonder anymore. With that deep southern rawness that used to occupy the honky tonk singers of yore, there is rustic Emmylou-Harris charm to worship leader Sandra McCracken's voice.

  • Point of Grace “Our Recollections: 25th Anniversary Collection” Album Review

    How times have changed. Once upon a time when Point of Grace was Word Records' gold card, they flew the quartet on the Dallas Mavericks' DC-9 jet to five different cities in one day just to promote their album.

  • Jesus Culture “Love Has a Name” Album Review

    If there is an adjective that best describes Jesus Culture's brand new live album, it's the word "big."
