Relient K: Something So Right

When it comes to talk of Christian artists breaking through the real and perceived barriers that supposedly exist between followers of Jesus and the mainstream marketplace of music and ideas, people will now always mention Relient K. But is the band ready for this next step?

Glory Reveals a Classic Take on Modern Worship

Multi-artist worship projects are certainly not new to this scene, but in Glory Revealed: The Word of God in Worship, producer and contributor Mac Powell (Third Day) accomplishes something both unique and classic in Christian music.

Third Day Delivers on First Part of Chronology

Parents, Tweens Should Welcome pureNRG’s Power-Pop Debut

pureNRG’s power-pop debut on Fervent Records should be a welcome arrival for the tweener audience. And most likely for their parents, too, as appropriate entertainment for children is getting harder and harder to find—especially in the sexually-charged culture of the day.

Ones to Watch: This Beautiful Republic

This Beautiful Republic from Toledo, Ohio, sounds as big as its name suggests it should! Comprised of Ben Olin (lead vocals), Adam Smith (guitar), Andrew Smith (drums), Brandon Paxton (bass) and Jeremy Kunkle (guitar), the band has a big sound with big songs.

Until June’s Debut Issues Love Songs in a Piano Key

Until June’s music—which will be distributed exclusively to the general market—will rightfully be compared to Ben Folds, Something Corporate, Keane, Coldplay and others simply because the music revolves and draws focus from the piano of Josh Ballard and his bright-voiced love song melodies.

Pieces an Average Rendering from an Exceptional Artist

Although Shawn McDonald's gravelly voice sounds passionately warm, Scattered Pieces: Live isn’t a strong, memorable set. Hopefully, this release will help anticipation build for McDonald’s next studio attempt, which will hopefully raise his profile and sustain his creative journey.

Southern Weather Could Be a Breakthrough for The Almost

With excellent songwriting and more than impressive performances, Southern Weather is the solo project from Underoath vocalist Aaron Gillespie (known as The Almost). Its unique and current sound has the makings of an indie rock breakthrough.

Hip-Hop: Rhyme Scene Investigation

At first glance, one might assume today's Christian hip-hop is on the rise: tobyMac’s hip-hop flavored music is more popular than ever, KJ-52’s latest disc is on pace to be his best-selling, and Soul P. recently unveiled "The Premiere." Is it all too good to be true?

Waking Up Could Be Dillon's Career Album

From the first note of "Waking Up," one is quick to realize that this could be a career album for the still young Bethany Dillon. At merely 18, Dillon releases her third album this month -- a project that is not only mature lyrically but, musically, is leaps and bounds beyond her two previous efforts.

Newcomer Jeremy Riddle Follows in Modern Worship Steps

Following on the heels of modern worship staple Chris Tomlin, Jeremy Riddle's much anticipated release, "Full Attention," features 12 original worship tracks, produced by Bob Hartry.

Something for Rockers, God-Lovers on "Finally Awake"

Seventh Day Slumber’s latest, "Finally Awake," will satisfy rockers and God-lovers alike. Their third album is drenched in fervency and more of their own guitar-heavy pop-metal fare.

The Road to "Glory Revealed"

Multi-artist worship album "Glory Revealed" features 10 intentional Scripture passages, most selected by author David Nasser, draped over original melodies and rendered by artists such as Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall, David Crowder, Brian Littrell, Steven Curtis Chapman, Michael W. Smith and Shane & Shane.

Relient K's "Five Score" Brilliant and Compelling

"Five Score and Seven Years Ago" is Relient K's fifth album in seven years. If you put aside the dorky album title and the "Crayons" novelty track, you are left with a brilliant and compelling album full of wonderful power-pop and alternative pop-punk songs.

Echoing Angels Doesn't Differentiate on "Alone"

While there’s nothing inherently bad about the mix of pop/rock tracks and ballads on "You Alone," there’s nothing striking about them either, as Echoing Angels fails to differentiate itself from the rest of the Christian music pack.

Sallie's Transformation Made Plain on "Ordinary"

After an extended absence from the music industry, Nate Sallie returns with the piano-based pop album, "Ruined for Ordinary," which shares Nate's internal transformation with listeners everywhere.

A Global Worship Movement

Given the popularity of praise and worship music in the past decade, it’s easy to think of the “worship movement” as a stateside phenomenon. But many of the most classic, enduring and popular praise song are being born in foreign lands.

“7th Heaven” Star Makes a Promising Music Debut

Now in her 11th season as Lucy Camden Kinkirk on the CW series “7th Heaven,” Beverley Mitchell takes a shot at the positive country market with a solid set of songs on her self-titled debut.

With her new album, "Recollection," Nichole Nordeman introduces two new tracks and pulls 15 mile-marker songs from four albums that have done far more than sell almost 1 million copies, win nine GMA Dove Awards and land five No. 1 radio singles. They have allowed audiences to walk alongside her life journey.

"Cities" a Solid Third Effort from Anberlin

With tighter playing and stronger writing, "Cities" displays Anberlin’s growth as a band, as the songwriting team of singer Stephen Christian and guitarist Joseph Milligan lead the Florida quintet in creating what is a solid album.
