Christian Music Reviews

Music Review:  Newsboys' "Restart" Needs No Do-Over

Music Review: Newsboys' "Restart" Needs No Do-Over

Restart is a solid set of faith-affirming songs for diehard fans and will be a good alternative for younger listeners who like mainstream pop.


"Evening:Morning" A New Beginning

"Evening:Morning" A New Beginning

The former members of the David Crowder Band have re-banded and come out with their own new album.  Is it also their own sound, or David Crowder re-visited?  Check out the review!


Music Review: Aaron Shust, "Morning Rises"

Music Review: Aaron Shust, "Morning Rises"

Aaron Shust Showcases His Diversity on Morning Rises


Music Review: David Crowder Band, "All This for a King" May Not Be Enough

Music Review: David Crowder Band, "All This for a King" May Not Be Enough

These guys certainly merit a hit retrospective, but All This feels more like a misguided, industry-driven placeholder release.



Music Review: Brandon Heath, "Blue Mountain"

Music Review: Brandon Heath, "Blue Mountain"

Something about this fictional locale pulls a person’s thinking toward God’s undiluted truth.


Music Review: Matthew West, "Into The Light"

Music Review: Matthew West, "Into The Light"

At times cliche, but this project will appeal to West’s fans as another concept album that values the stories of men and women who have weathered life just as we all have.










Music Review: Love Like This a Safer Second Outing

Slick but slightly less adventurous …


Music Review: Millard Repeats Classic Format on Hymned Again

MercyMe's Millard scores second home run with personal hymnbook …




Music Review: Mandisa's "It's Christmas"

"Idol" Alum Turns Out Full-length Holiday Effort



Music Review: "Bebo Norman"

Self-Titled CD Personalizes New Chapter for Norman






Music Review: Hillsong London's "Hail to the King"

Worship Collection Fails to Favorably Impress


Music Review: Fernando Ortega's "Christmas Songs"

Yet Another Acoustic Delight from Fernando Ortega



Music Review: Point of Grace, No Changin' Us

Point of Grace's venture into country/lite pop continues with No Changin' Us. But does it work?





Music Review: Amy Grant, "Somewhere Down The Road"

Her first truly new record in seven years is a collection of songs old and new, built around the theme of a journey through hope, pain, joy, and sorrow.


Music Review: Sanctus Real, "Pieces of a Real Heart" Should Quell the Questioning

After nearly a decade in the industry, Sanctus Real might wonder if it still has a relevant foothold in popular Christian music. The honest lyrical and musical charm of Pieces of a Real Heart should quell the questioning.


Music Review: MercyMe, The Generous Mr. Lovewell

Who is The Generous Mr. Lovewell? And what album has MercyMe fashioned from their acquaintance with this fellow?


Music Review: Addison Road, "Stories"

After a year of unbelievable struggles, Addison Road is ready to "Fight Another Day", with Stories.


Music Review: Revive, "Blink"

Too many good things to say and not enough exciting tracks to contain them.



Music Review: Michael W. Smith, "Wonder"

With the release of his 22nd and latest career album, Wonder represents a new chapter in the artist's life and musical output. Does it measure up to the iconic hall of fame work he's done in the past?



Music Review: The Afters "Light Up the Sky" with Latest

The Afters debut most accessible album of band's career ...


Music Review: Third Day, "Move"

Third Day runs full-circle back to their Southern rock roots in Move. Does it "move" you to buy it? Check out the rest of the review


Music Review: Newsboys, "Christmas! - A Newsboys Holiday"

It's hard to believe the Newsboys have never recorded a Christmas album. But Tait and the gang do things a little differently than before, and a Christmas project from the new band brings forth many possibilities.



Music Review: The Essential Christmas Collection

With such a vast assortment of styles and talent on tap, some tracks are instantly endearing, while others take some enduring to get through.


Music Review: Chris Tomlin, "And If Our God Is For Us..."

For better or worse, these new songs are just what listeners familiar with his style would expect: a set of emotional, mid-tempo ballads, with a few upbeat tracks mixed in.



Music Review: Brandon Heath, "Leaving Eden"

When you've got a year's second most played radio single to your name, there's much expected from you. Does Leaving Eden measure up?


Music Review: Josh Wilson, "See You"

See You combines the mellow but heartfelt style from his debut with the solid pop sound of Life Is Not A Snapshot. Because of this, unfortunately, little new ground is gained.


Music Review: Rebecca St. James, "I Will Praise You"

A more complete fit between singer and style


Music Review: Francesca Battistelli is All Grown Up on "Hundred More Years"

Hundred More Years isn't going to churn up deep discussions or make big challenges, but that was never Francesca Battistelli's style anyway.


Music Review: Tenth Avenue North Takes Fans Inside and In Between

Live CD/DVD shows both depth and rock facet of this maturing band ...


Music Review: Passion, "Here For You"

Worship Continues on Passion's Here for You. Chris Tomlin leads another excellent Passion compilation …


Music Review: Jonny Diaz, "Jonny Diaz"

Diaz appears to have perfected the art of writing catchy pop songs.


Music Review: Laura Story, "Blessings"

Worshipful pop, or pop-tinted worship?


Music Review: Nicole C. Mullen Makes a Joyful Noise on "Captivated"

While Mullen has never recorded a full-on praise album in her 20-year (!!!) career, she's always been a worshipper at heart. So with that said, it's really no surprise that she's finally getting around to releasing one now.


Music Review: Building 429, "Listen To The Sound"

If Listen to the Sound is the measuring stick of Building 429's musicianship, the bar remains terribly low with their best probably behind them.



Music Review - Tricia Brock, "The Road"

Superchick lead singer Tricia Brock's debut as a solo artist, The Road, takes a softer and more personal turn from her usual rock tendencies.


Music Review: Peter Furler, "On Fire"

Furler's comeback album isn't an especially inventive endeavor, it's nonetheless an extremely endearing project.


Music Review: Matt Redman, "10,000 Reasons"

Live Worship Offered with 10,000 Reasons



Music Review: Steven Curtis Champan, "re: creation"

Forward-Thinking re:creation Looks Back


Music Review: Aaron Shust, "This is What We Believe"

Faith Fuels This is What We Believe


Music Review: Downhere, "On The Altar of Love"

Mission Accomplished On the Altar of Love


Music Review: Matt Hammitt, "Every Falling Tear" is Personal

Every Falling Tear works from a specific valley to arrive at a mountain of hope we should all aspire to scale, regardless of any earthly circumstance.


Music Review: Jason Gray Shines on A Way to See in the Dark

Jason Gray is one of the most underrated singer/songwriters in Christian music. His latest release further proves this point.




Music Review: Switchfoot, "Vice Verses" Rocks and Floats

The fun yet philosophical rock band's creative chemistry and contagious enthusiasm never seem to wane. Vice Verses is proof positive.


Music Review: Various Artists, "The Story"

While not perfect, Music Inspired By The Story is an extremely creative idea. What Nordeman and Herms have created is truly remarkable. One of the better compilations of the year.


Music Review: David Crowder Band, "Oh For Joy"

David Crowder Band Brings Christmas Joy


Music Review: TobyMac, "Christmas in Diverse City"

Christmas a Little Lacking in Diverse CityTobyMac's Christmas in Diverse Cityâ ”a pop-meets-hip-hop mishmashâ ”does invite some complaints.



Music Review: Casting Crowns, "Come to the Well"

Come to the Well yields finely crafted songs that can and probably will soon double as sermon outlines at a church near you.


Music Review: Sara Groves, "Invisible Empires"

Invisible Empires, Groves' 10th album release, is a milestone that clearly shows she still has much more to say musically.



Music Review: Hawk Nelson, "Christmas"

While it won't be everyone's cup of tea, for fans of Hawk Nelson, Christmas proves to be more than festive in its own way.



Music Review: Newsboys, "God's Not Dead"

Worship Lives on in God's Not Dead


Music Review: Chris Tomlin, "How Great Is Our God"

Lives Celebrated in Tomlin's Collection


Music Review: Michael W. Smith, "Glory"

Glory Smith's Second Instrumental Outing


Music Review: "Wow Christmas 2011"

Something for Everyone on Wow Christmas

Lots to love about A Thousand Little Things
