Album Review ~ Hiding Place By Tori Kelly

Category Religious/Christian Genre Gospel R&B/Pop/Soul Release Date September 14, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review Tori Kelly’s Hiding Place is rich with soul, vulnerability and truth. Her heart, lyrics and voice touch to the deepest parts, whether she’s hitting the highest notes or riding the lowest pitches. Clearly intentional and delicate about her theme, it is obvious Kelly aimed to inspire faith, hope, and love for the darkest of times with her story, as she boldly tells about the goodness and faithfulness of God in leading her through her toughest times and supplying her joy, strength, and love for God, herself, and others when she needed it the most. Kelly may have aimed to bless and inspire, but it’s simply impossible not to be entertained by Hiding Place, as each unique song touches on something that resonates on a personal level with most living souls. *Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that.

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date August 17, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review This softly worshipful but powerful praise & worship shows a heart that displays gratitude and satisfaction toward God with the finest of music, lyrics, and passionate voices. There’s a maturity to the tone of the music that reflects the truth that Tomlin has been doing this for a while; but this is also beyond fine-tuned skill; this is a person that has grown in their relationship with God. It is seen in the genuineness of his heart throughout the EP. It can’t be explained. Only heard and perceived. For an album that could easily lead you into a mode of worship, pick up Tomlin’s Nobody Loves Me Like You Do.
