Album Review – Simplicity by SongLab

Category Christian Genre Worship/Contemporary Rating 4 Stars Review There’s a subtle atmosphere to the music that leads a listener into a mode of worship and praise. The lyrics are beautifully designed and structured in a posture of surrender, humility, and awe for God’s love, holiness, and sovereignty. SongLab leaves no doubt about the sweetness of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Each song is a resounding testimony of the goodness of God and His faithfulness to each of His own. An anthem song to look out for in this EP is Hero, a number wholeheartedly dedicated to worshiping and praising God in utmost adoration simply because He is God. *Though I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that. A ‘thank you’ to DREAM Label Group for a free copy in a exchange for my honest opinion.

Music Review ~ One on One EP by Gary LeVox

Category Christian Genre Pop/Urban Country Rating 4.5 Stars Review LeVox presents a well-delivered collection packed full with messages of truth and comfort that highlight the goodness of God’s love in our lives, which also pours out to others if we let it (because this is how the world will know who we are), as well a trust in God’s faithfulness to keep us devoted to the truth so we will never lose our way–a trust that comes from a track record of God never failing, one that keeps us despite the worst inner struggles and outer circumstances, so that in the end the promise that we will win and overcome is fulfilled in our lives no matter what comes our way. A comforting and calming work of art with messages that remain timeless. *Though I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that.
