Light up the World
Style: Artful worship rock Top tracks: "Mercy Is Falling," "Joy Will Come," "Dawn Till Dusk (Soaking Session)"

In a nutshell: With four albums already under their belt, this Colorado Springs-based worship band has settled into a recognizable, though still affecting, routine with their latest LP. They start off with loud, musically complex attention-grabbers, then move into slow weepers before returning to the fist-pumping epics that close out the album. Although it does help the album flow, the mixture of singers and approaches highlighted in each section makes it hard for the project to cohere into a whole. It's a good but not great collection saved by some surprisingly experimental touches and movements that break up the song suites.
