Poema Sweetens the Holidays with Once a Year

Poema definitely has talent with lots of room to grow and blossom in their musical ambitions (they are 18 and 20!). No matter where you are, if you want to feel cozy and warm with your cup of cocoa, turn on their holiday EP, Once a Year, for a Christmas treat.

Introducing the City Harmonic a Welcome, Noteworthy Debut

Though pensive at times, this expressive mix has a collective worshipful attitude with a healthy dose of humility. Overall, The City Harmonic's six-song introduction proves a noteworthy project and may leave listeners with the hope of more to come.

Tapestry Weaves Together the Promise of Holly Starr

New artist Holly Starr's latest work and second full-length independent release, Tapestry, is so slick and polished, no one would ever guess that she's a young, 19-year-old independent artist from a tiny town in Washington.

Take 6 Helps Make It The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

In comparison to Take 6's past holiday efforts, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is the hap-happiest of them all, largely focused on being of good cheer, but still duly reverent to the real reason for the season on two of ten tracks.

Have a Very Merry Christmas Courtesy of Dave Barnes

On his first Christmas album, Dave Barnes’ voice is pure sugar and spice. Barnes’ trademark acoustic musings mark the majority of this Very Merry Christmas collection, with the acclaimed singer/songwriter penning six of the ten tracks.

Jesus Culture Captures Live Worship on Come Away

For raw emotion and moments of unpolished serendipity, nothing matches a live album. Jesus Culture taps into this dynamic on its latest, Come Away, a recording of a worship conference held at the band's home base of Bethel Church in Redding, California.

Chris Tomlin's Latest Has a Been-There-Heard-That Sensibility

If anything, And If Our God Is for Us can't help but make someone wonder if Chris Tomlin might benefit from—and even enjoy—stepping out of his familiar role as a worship leader for a moment to try something new artistically.

Jason Castro Hits Christian Music Scene with Who I Am

Seven months after his self-titled debut—and two years after finding American Idol fame—Jason Castro offers more material with Who I Am, which is essentially the dreadlocked Texan's introduction to the Christian music scene.

Susan Boyle's Gift Doesn't Deliver Much Holiday Cheer

All the magic that made Susan Boyle such a standout soprano on the show and her debut has virtually disappeared, thanks to several ill-advised moves from a production standpoint and a set list so random it feels like it was chosen by somebody's iPod shuffle setting.

Essential Christmas Collection Offers Something for Everyone

Although the twelve holiday offerings captured on The Essential Christmas Collection form a pleasant listen from front to back, it's the hard-to-find singles that fans will be most interested in.

Point of Grace Keeps It Country on Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays, Point of Grace's latest holiday effort as a trio, follows the country sounds found on No Changin' Us. Produced by Stephanie and Nathan Chapman, the album is filled with the sweet timbres of the banjo, mandolin and steel guitar.

33Miles' Today Doesn't Reinvent the Wheel

33Miles' Today doesn't make any breakthrough artistic statements, but band members Jason Barton and Chris Lockwood have said on record they aren't out to reinvent the wheel. Still, this record should keep the group and its fans rolling along very well.

Newsboys Celebrate Christmas! with New Holiday EP

Newsboys shows no signs of slowing down. The band continues to tour relentlessly, singles from Born Again have been embraced at radio, and fans across the country have embraced a new lead singer. This fall, the band seeks to further solidify its staying power with its first Christmas release.

Third Day Stays a Little Too Static on Move

After 2008’s Revelation, which showcased Third Day’s revitalized artistry, we expect more. That album dipped into more personal territory lyrically and tinkered with the band’s formula enough to prove relevant. Move feels a little too safe, or, said another way, a little too static.

Matthew West Sings Your Stories on Fourth Set

For his fourth major label set, Matthew West asked fans to submit letters about whatever was on their hearts, and he would put it to music. Then he retreated to a cabin with his guitar and a whiteboard to begin making sense of it all. What has emerged are exceptionally crafted songs with deeply personal roots but universal appeal.

Worship and Real Life Collide Beautifully on Lincoln Brewster's Latest

In stark contrast to the mountaintop faith experiences often written about in modern worship's most popular choruses, Lincoln Brewster offers insight into God's intervention in life's more mundane moments on Real Life, a superb, 10-song collection with all weary souls in mind.

Jars of Clay's Shelter Sounds a Clarion Call to Unity

The Shelter might be the album Christian music has been waiting for. It's a clarion call to unity, a seamless marriage of form and content where not only is Jars of Clay talking about community, it's actively engaging in it.

Coffey Anderson's Self-Titled Debut a Likable Blend

Imagine tuneful hip-hop and pop artists' styles mixed with a strong modern praise energy and message, all somehow rooted in soulful Southern rock sensibility, and you'll have an idea of what Coffey Anderson's likable, self-titled debut sounds like.
