51O9lyw1BZL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

I’ve just started Ted Dekker’s Outlaw series, so I thought I’d review the series. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve reviewed a novel (not since T.L. Hines Waking Lazarus I believe) and it’s time I wrote one again. I’m going to be reviewing the first novel in the series, Eyes Wide Open (if you don’t count the Outlaw novel, which is the introduction novel to the series). So how does it rank in Ted’s amazing library?

Christian rock band, Red, released their new album last month titled of Beauty and Rage. After a disappointing album that was Release the Panic, have they returned with an album that blows everything else away?

Steve Taylor and the Perfect Foil: Goliath, Review

Does anyone remember Steve Taylor? Does anyone remember his last album, Squint, released back in 1993? No? If so, don’t worry, because he’s back! After twenty-one years (longer than my whole life), Steve is back, and he’s brought a new band along with him. Steve Taylor and the Perfect Foil released their debut album, Goliath in November last year, and if anyone recalls my 2014 album list, will remember this got pretty high.

Mitch Langley: Grace Defines Me, Review

original-ml-album-1400

Mitch Langley is an independent worship artist who is more than capable of fitting into the modern CCM genre, and from that alone, it shows promise. Sometimes independent artists can succumb to the trap of bad production and quality, in both music and album art. Thankfully, Mitch manages to bypass both of those traps to create a fine CCM worship album. Unfortunately for some, that can be good or bad.

Phil Wickham: The Ascension, Album Review

In celebration of an old friend returning home, I thought I’d go ahead and review his favourite worship album, Phil Wickham’s the Ascension.

Phil Wickham is easily one of the best worship leaders active today, and the Ascension is just another addition to his ever growing collection of worship albums that are above the norm. Even the cover is as beautiful as the music itself.

My Epic: Behold, Album Review

my-epic-behold

The Metalcore label, Facedown, has a found a real gem with My Epic, and they’re not even a hardcore band.  I discovered this band through the Christian music website, Indie Vision, and with a sale on Facedown records for $2.99, I took a chance and bought it. What I found is easily one of the best worship albums I have heard in a very long time.

Jeremy Camp: Reckless, Album Review

JeremyCampReckless

Jeremy Camp is easily one my favourite artists in the CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) genre, with his amazing albums including Stay and Restored. And now, in the beginning of next year, Camp is releasing a new album titled, I Will Follow. So I thought I’d go back and look at his previous record, Reckless, and the musical direction he has taken over the years.
