Album Review ~ The Case For Christ By Various Artists: Songs Inspired By The Original Motion Picture

  Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Contemporary/Worship Release Date April 7, 2017 Rating 4.5 Stars Review The Case For Christ album, inspired by the original motion picture of the same title, opens with the theme song sung by JT Murrell. Attention to the overall lyrics show a careful consideration of each song clearly chosen to pass across the message that God is real, and He hasn’t stopped convicting people and revealing Himself to them. The entire collection tells a story that begins with the unbelief of a person who nonetheless searches for answers, and then is kissed by the truth; eventually, there’s the dawning of knowledge and understanding, the shedding away of denial, and, finally, a beautiful surrender to the truth which leads to a profound belief in God–it’s such a beautiful story to piece together and listen to in music!

Album Review ~ There Is A Cloud by Elevation Worship

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Contemporary Worship Release Date March 17, 2017 Rating 5 Stars Review There Is A Cloud is an exceptional album with songs whose lyrics are uplifting and soul-soothing. The Christian listener, firstly, through the theme song There Is A Cloud (and subsequent others), is reminded of the promises of God, a message that tells the child of God that s/he is not forgotten—God is faithful; He hasn’t failed us yet! Instrumentation is powerful—a collection of symphonies that, however, don’t overwhelm the singing in any way, but rather add to the overall beauty of the worship. This album is a testimony of God’s grace and faithfulness, put together in a way that a listener would be truly blessed—each lyric was clearly carefully selected for this purpose! There Is A Cloud is most definitely a lovely album. If you’re in the market for a joyous, encouraging, uplifting, and entertaining music, look no further than Elevation Worship’s latest release, There Is A Cloud.

Album Review ~ This Changes Everything by Cana’s Voice

Album Photo Genre Urban Country/Contemporary Worship Rating 4 Stars Review The music of this album comes off initially as a semi-acapella, urban country, and the traditional contemporary worship. In a time when the norm is rock/pop/hip-hop, this is a welcome change! Most of the lyrics are simple and easy to follow so that not much effort is required for a sing-along if you pay enough attention. This light-hearted worship album that takes one back to the traditional worship setting is uplifting, joyful, and most definitely nostalgic in a beautiful way!
