Brewster's Latest: Not Spectacular, but not Bad
- 2002 10 May
Artist: Lincoln Brewster
In a Phrase: Amazed is not as captivating as Brewster's debut, but it does join together great production and an artist who always strives to create pleasing and enjoyable art for his Maker.
Scheduled Street Date: July 16, 2002
Many times a record label will postpone the release date of a CD, but the release date also can be affected by the day-to-day life of the artist. Such is the case with Lincoln Brewster's third project, Amazed, the release of which was affected by the birth of Brewster's son, Levi, as well as his role as worship leader at his home church in California.
Levi's influence on his dad resounds throughout the lyrics of All I Really Want, one of the best tracks on the record. Everybody Praise the Lord, the hardest track on the CD, is laced with Brewster's trademark guitars, which blow the doors down and rock the church house!
The hymn-like Praises Be is a soothing musical palette intertwined with beautiful lyrics, allowing the listener to reminisce about the songs they grew up with in church.
What A Friend I've Found is a simple lyric about the close relationship we can have with our Creator, while Let All Creation Praise the Lord is a call to thank and praise Him for what He's given us through Christ. Brewster also puts his mark on his cover of King of Majesty, originally from Hillsongs.
My final word...
Amazed is nothing spectacular. However, if you're looking for another modern worship project, buy it. My recommendation? Pick up Brewster's debut first; it will truly amaze you.
Until Next Time. . .
