Review: Jesus Culture – Let It Echo

JesusCultureFor the past several years, the music and brand of Jesus Culture has fought an uphill battle as the new kids on the block, trying to find their niche in a worship culture saturated with outfits like Hillsong, Passion, and the ever-evolving Integrity Music branch. Yet, through the nurture of worship leaders and songwriters like Kim Walker-Smith, Chris Quilala, Bryan and Katie Torwalt, and more and a constant focus on raising the name of Jesus high, Jesus Culture has proven that they are here to stay.

Review: John Mark McMillan – Live At The Knight

JohnMarkMcMillanLive albums can be a bit of a slippery slope. While some artists manage to nail it in the studio, live albums face the possibility of showing their weaknesses, the multiple takes, vocal layering, and world of AutoTune left behind while they lay it all on the line before a live crowd. Yet, even with those risks, nothing quite matches the energy of a live performance, capturing the energy and passion that only a concert being enjoyed and participated in by hundreds of people can bring. And on John Mark McMillan’s Live At The Knight, he mines that energy for all its worth and delivers one of the better live releases to come along in a while.

Review: Chris McClarney – Everything and Nothing Less

ChrisMcClarneyThere’s a sense of expectancy that leads off Chris McClarney’s latest recording that really sets the tone for the whole album. Rather than following the usual pattern of delivering a big opening call to worship, McClarney launches straight into that worship with the declaration of “Holy Moment,” faithfully claiming this time and this moment to be sacred and set apart for none other than the God to whom he sings. It’s that humble, faith-filled element that sets McClarney’s apart from many.
