Album Review ~ Worthy Of It All By Jeremy Gibson

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date May 4, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review Worthy Of It All breathes gentle power—the very nature of our loving Father! So there couldn’t be a more befitting way to worship God, especially when the atmosphere is filled with such humility that it inspires surrender in the heart of a listener. This is Jeremey Gibson’s unique way of worshipping God. There’s a steady confidence that flows and soaks into the soul of a surrendered listener, so that the true power of worship is displayed in the abounding joy that overflows in the midst of worship. It’s interesting to note how the conventional contemporary worship style does well in reminding the old believer of the good old days, while remaining thankful for the newness of the present. The Worthy Of It All album, though titled after one of the tracks, is everything that the name evokes. God is good, faithful, mighty, and worthy of all our praise! *Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and …

Album Review ~ Cliff & Antoinette Murray

Category Religious/Christian Genre Urban Praise Release Date April 20, 2018. Rating 4.5 Stars Review There’s a quintessential loveliness to the manner in which Cliff and Antoinette express their music, such that simple but deep melody marries the beautiful complexity of rich singing. As they aim to do one thing—bring down to earth the glory of God—their passionate voices ring to heights that are clear, true, and inspiring, accompanied by an organic ambiance from the sweet native sounds of the piano and semi-acoustics. This album—self-titled as Cliff & Antoinette Murray—is a classy combination of the ever dependable contemporary, the enchanting impressiveness of classic music, with a lovely twist of semi-Acapella tucked in all the right places, and in such a way that celebrates and showcases the striking progressive nature and journey of music from the past to present. This is what music is all about! And the Murrays—a dynamic duo—don’t hold back from start to finish, so that the soft smoothness with which Antoinette opens the album is rightly matched with a powerful close that would …

Album Review ~ Your Love Remains By The Rock Music

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Worship/Praise Release Date March 16, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review There’s a calm attitude to the worship and praise of The Rock Music’s Your Love Remains album. Its simple lyrics carry the ever profound message of God’s goodness, love, and faithfulness—and this simplicity doesn’t in any way belie the depth of this message. An interesting observation worth mentioning is the light music/instrumentals that Rock Music is uniquely known for, which blends softly and beautifully with the melody, so that neither—melody and music—is too much for the other, but both are powerfully combined and enough to inspire heartfelt worship in the heart of the listener. If you’re in the market for an album with a gentle atmosphere that perpetuates serenity and tranquility in heart and in spirit, and to depths that run deeply enough to calm the soul in the midst of genuine worship, Your Love Remains by Rock Music is your ticket to such a worshipful experience—as its wonderful lyrics simply but firmly remind the child of God of their place …
