Though fledgling label Indelible Creative Group may at a glance appear to be another worship imprint—its flagship artist, The Longing, is a worship band, while founder Chris Thomason is a former top-level executive at worship giant Integrity Music—the company's mission is broader than that. They seek to "help build God's kingdom by creating remarkable experiences through media products that are culturally and spiritually relevant."
It's a bit unclear how the new label's second release fits within that corporate vision, but multi-artist compilation
Despite this fifty-fifty emphasis on praise and performance, the compilation gels well together, sounding cohesive even in light of the stylistic shifts. More tellingly, the songwriters (Ronnie Freeman, Alli Rogers) and rock bands (Vapor, Spur58) do have a slight edge over the more standard worship representatives (Christopher Williams, Ten Avenue North, Among Thorns), proving more characteristic and memorable in terms immediacy and thematic variety.
Especially noteworthy is Freeman's empowering "Breakaway," a song with more pop/rock energy than anything he did during his short tenure with Rocketown Records. Or Vapor's stunning "Dying to Myself," a potent anthem that chronicles the battle between flesh and spirit with introspective humanity. And the sole folk-pop entry in the disc, "Tanzania," deserves a mention for its poignancy in anticipation of life in heaven. Save for a few exceptions, everything else is hit-or-miss, depending on whether you favor straightforward worship or mainline Christian music.
