"Kiss of Heaven" – Music Review
- Julie Steffen CCM Magazine
- 2004 20 Jan
Artist: Darlene Zschech
Chances are good that anyone who has attended a contemporary church service in the last few years has, at some point, participated in a congregational rendition of Darlene Zschech’s powerful worship classic, “Shout to the Lord.”
Now on her debut solo album, "Kiss of Heaven," Zschech departs from her deeply rooted worship background to create an indisputably pop-tinged project. While the 14-track disc features a solid collection of worship songs (including an obligatory yet freshly arranged cut of “Shout to the Lord”), this album is not your typically overdone worship fare.
On this years-in-the-making project, Zschech embraces the opportunity to showcase her musical versatility by including songs as diverse as a tasteful remake of the old hymn “Beautiful Savior” as well as a savvy cover of U2’s “Walk On,” featuring Delirious’ Martin Smith.
When you couple Zschech’s sincere and powerful vocals with years of songwriting and worship expertise, this album highlights her tremendous diversity.
