Roots Run Deep with Sturdy Vocals and Classic Hymns

Roots Run Deep features familiar classics such as “Come Thou Fount,” “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” “I Need Thee Every Hour” and “Take My Life”—all supported by Jadon Lavik’s sturdy yet seemingly effortless vocals.

Born to Worship Commemorates Kelly’s Freedom

Sarah Kelly indicates that Born to Worship chronicles her journey away from “self-hatred and abuse.” It is because of this release that she is worshipping in true freedom, and many of the new songs commemorate just that.

McDonald’s Roots Runs in a Different Direction

Lyrically speaking, Roots is a reference to the spiritual theme dominant on Shawn McDonald’s latest—an exploration of the soul’s grounding in God. Still, you purchase a CD for the music, and Roots is hardly an apt description.

Top Worship Leaders Featured in Immerse

Integrity has gathered artists both long familiar (Darlene Zschech and Sara Groves) and introductory (Kari Jobe and Laura Story), and showcases their formidable talents on songs as new as today’s calendar on Immerse.

FLAME Continues Spewing Fire on Redeemed

Less than a year after shedding light on the world’s fall from grace with the apocalyptic Our World: Fallen, St. Louis rapper FLAME continues to spew fire with Our World: Redeemed, his fourth album on the Cross Movement label.

Love Out Loud a Fine Return for Jaci Velasquez

Love Out Loud, Jaci Velasquez’ 13th record and debut release on her own Apostrophe Records label, should earn the popular pop artist a warm welcome back to the fold.

Switchfoot Frontman Goes Acoustic on Solo EPs

Jon Foreman isn’t a solo artist, but the well-known figure of Switchfoot. But after the mental shift, you’ll be glad you stuck around as Foreman’s solo turns on the first two of four planned EPs are absolutely brilliant.

Metallo's Uneven Debut Showcases Multiple Genres

Alyce Metallo’s classical piano training shows through on her self-titled debut. Although uneven at times, it shows she can also handle a Latin samba, a jazz groove, or a techno track just as easily as an R&B song.

Gateway Offers Praise Mix to Wake Up the World

On their sophomore disc, Gateway Worship presents a nice mix of praise tracks: from the thundering rock of “New Doxology Anthem” to the gentle closing ballad “Beautiful.” The gamut of worship experiences is handled with ease.

Michael English Returns with The Prodigal

For Michael English’s first studio album in eight years, Curb Records called on some of the big guns—including producer Mark Miller and songwriter Neil Thrasher. That aside, the project comes across as extremely honest as well.

Addison Road’s Simple Lyrics Might Bore

Most of the 10 tracks on Addison Road are upbeat anthems of exhortation and encouragement. Lyrics are simple and direct, which is fine for concert sing-a-longs, but those looking to dig into more heady territory might be bored.

Confidence Comes Across on Jamgochian’s Noise

Worship leader Jaime Jamgochian’s Above the Noise comes across as very confident in every way, even bringing to mind comparisons with significant classic worship artist Twila Paris.

Pillar Wears Faith Well in For the Love

Pillar is unabashedly unashamed of their place in the Christian music industry, and they aren’t afraid to wear their faith as they call on listeners to do the same in For the Love of the Game.

Avalon Reinterprets Classics on Another Time

Pushing the envelope a bit, Avalon’s latest revisits Christian classic songs, all of them originally performed by CCM legends including Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Twila Paris, Crystal Lewis and Steven Curtis Chapman.

Leeland Heads Toward Worship on Opposite Way

After selling more than 100,000 copies of its 2006 debut, and garnering GRAMMY and Dove Award nominations, Leeland could have easily attempted a Top 40 break-in. Instead, taking a lead from the album’s title track, the rock quintet solidifies its firm worship element.

Desperation Band Gets Personal on Everyone Overcome

The sound of Everyone Overcome is still characteristic Desperation Band. But the more indie rock groove and ethereal compositions give the songs and the record a more personal, authentic atmosphere.

Stellar Kart Does the Impossible with Pop, Rock and Punk

On its third effort, Expect the Impossible, Stellar Kart incorporates additional angles of pop, modern rock and upbeat punk. The result is a palatable, though in many cases, still too simple sonic and spiritual outpourings.

Former Chasing Furies Member Returns Solo on Waiters

Both fans and critics were sorry to see the breakup of Chasing Furies, given their bright start in 1999. But lead singer and guitarist Sarah MacIntosh returns now with her first solo release, The Waiters, The Watchers, The Listeners, The Keepers & Me.

For This Fight, Franklin’s Got God in His Corner

Song by song on The Fight of My Life, Kirk Franklin peels away the hurts of life in a fallen world. All along the way, he calls on the Lord and celebrates the hope available in Christ. It’s a compelling reminder that God is always in our corner.
