Review: Jonathan David & Melissa Helser – Beautiful Surrender

jonathandavidmelissahelserSurrender is typically seen as a negative within the thinking of our world, the term indicating the defeat of one against another, evoking thoughts of failure and more. Yet, within the Christian faith, surrender is seen in a wholly different light, one of positive encouragement as believers are challenged to lay down not only their burdens but their lives before the conquering Christ. Of course, the beautiful caveat is that in losing our lives we are bound to find them and it’s this truth which provides the heartbeat of Bethel Music’s latest act, Jonathan David and Melissa Helser, and their debut for the label, Beautiful Surrender.

Review: Amanda Cook – Brave New World

AmandaCookAs much of the world of Christian music has gone the way of the “worship” genre, there’s been a slight homogenization of the music. This shift has led to some lessened songwriting and rather pedestrian arrangements as well intentioned artists seek to craft music that’s engaging but able to fit into a congregational setting. Yet, thankfully, there are others who’ve stepped forward with a different understanding of what worship is and can be and who have set forth on a creative journey to explore and discover new ways of giving praise to the Creator. Bethel Music has been among those pioneering outlets and this latest from Amanda Cook, Brave New World, continues that journey.

Review: Bethel Music – Without Words: Synesthesia

BethelInstrumental albums, by and large, are often a tough sell in and of themselves. Add in the concept of delivering already familiar tracks in that same format and listeners are oftentimes left expecting cheesy Muzak-flavored jams which pale with their vocally enhanced counterparts. Yet Bethel Music has been taking a new approach to these releases and continues to do so with their latest album, Without Words: Synesthesia, blending their popular worship anthems together with emotive and ambient instrumental textures to create an all new worship environment that really connects.
