Worship Goes Organic on Rend Collective Experiment's Debut

As their name suggests, Rend Collective Experiment is a fun yet deep group of twenty or so twentysomethings that is up to something different—presenting itself as a fluid community of musicians held together by a few steady, albeit intentionally anonymous members.

Dark is the Way, Light is a Place Reveals a More Mature Anberlin

The cover art might be a clue—a horse captured in free-fall, limbs flailing. Fitting, perhaps, since Anberlin's latest is an album about suspension, being on the way to somewhere, but not there yet, dealing with the obstacles along the path.

Love God. Love People. an Ambitious Mix for Israel Houghton

Burning Like the Midnight Sun a Welcome Return for The Choir

After twenty-five years and little commercial success, alternative Christian rock band The Choir gracefully continues on its own terms, still making the art of thoughtful lyrics, fine melodies, and interesting music sound easy on this twelfth album, Burning Like the Midnight Sun.

House of Heroes Has Some Fun in Suburba

When any band delivers an album that fans and critics both love, expectations can't help but run sky high for the inevitable follow-up. And while Suburba doesn't quite surpass last year's breakout release, it's certainly House of Heroes' most fun album, hands down.

McClarney's Collection Focuses on His Defender

A soulful collection of 15 songs, Chris McClarney's Defender rings true to its name. The album sets the mood for listeners with a pervasive sense of longing to be in God's presence, trusting that his promises are true, and painting a picture of who God really is.

Chris August Tells His Story in No Far Away

No Far Away, the debut release from singer/songwriter Chris August under the Fervent record label, is an honest collection. The majority of songs tell a part of his story from brokenness to restoration with a glossy pop/rock sound and clean R&B influenced vocals.

City of Life Worships Live on Newest Offering

City of Life, the praise team from central Florida's multi-cultural mega-church, turns in a communal worship experience that simultaneously conveys the energy of a live Sunday service, while ushering individual listeners into a prayerful mindset.

Newsboys' Rebirth is Creatively Challenged on Born Again

Newsboys have always shined a little brighter in the live setting, and Born Again has far too much studio spit and shine. Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for an album of catchy pop songs. But something about this collection feels a little too contrived—even a little safe and boring.

Waterdeep Gives Folk-Rock Some Punch In the Middle of It

One thing Waterdeep's Don and Lori Chaffer have never lacked is creativity. Dousing their latest quirky folk-rock with extra punch, the dynamic duo turns a kaleidoscope of sounds into a shimmering tapestry of musical color.
