Album Review ~ Future + Hope by New Hope Oahu

Album Photo Category Christian/Inspirational Genre Pop/Contemporary Worship Release Date September 9th, 2016 Rating 5 Stars Review Future + Hope began with the head-nodding disco-popish (Jesus) I Want You, and then slid into contemporary worshipful mode for most of the album. In listening to Future + Hope, there’s the clear sense that it is so much more than the music and the singing, but all about worship to God, Most High. Each song is designed to lead the listener into complete surrender in heart and in spirit. The simple but amazing lyrics are soft and beautiful, blending wonderfully with the instrumentals, and making sweet symphonies that can only be described as heavenly. If you’re a fan of Hillsong’s music, you’ll adore New Hope Oahu’s Future + Hope. Be sure to look out for Call On The Name, Written and Amen—the songs which I believe are the cherries on top of the icing! From I Want You to Mesmerized, this 12-track album is beautiful music therapy for any troubled heart seeking peace, comfort and rest.

Album Review ~ This Side of the Sky by Je’kob

Album Cover Genre Christian/Hip-hop/R&B/Acoustic My Rating **** (4 Stars) My Review Truly and natively hip-hop, Je’kob doesn’t hold back in this album. He’s a refreshing voice with a strong presence. The songs are catchy and entertaining, and equally true to their message of Christianity. One song in particular—I Believe—caught my attention. It had a flavor of urban reggae with an acoustic backdrop, as did other songs, while still maintaining the hip-hop/R&B feel to it. I thought it was lovely! There was a moment in the album where the electric guitar took over. It was pretty awesome! There’s no particular theme in this album—except that every song is true to the Word of God in whatever message a song preaches. A unique and refreshing voice in the world of Christian hip-hop/R&B. The lyrics were edifying and well-written, too. Read this post on facebook. About Je’kob Rapper, singer, and record producer, Je’kob Washington was born in San Antonio, Texas, on June 16th, 1981.
