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 …
