We’ve teamed up with our friends over at One Man In The Middle to bring you regular, unbiased and honest reviews of music albums aimed at the Christian marketplace. Scoring the latest Jesus Culture album, Let It Echo (Live) at an impressive 9.7 out of 10, read more of what they had to say…
It’s hard to imagine a time when Jesus Culture didn’t exist. Not only does it feel like their music has been with us forever, but also the world would seem a very strange place without them! Recorded over a period of a month and a half at their church in Sacramento, Let It Echo (Live) is truly outstanding and features 12 new songs all penned solely by Jesus Culture artists. Guests Chris McClarney, Bryan and Katie Torwalt and Derek Johnson add to the excellence of this album.
These are worship songs that I think will be filtering through the Christian culture in 2016, particularly the more youth oriented churches and events and then spread back into the mainstream worship. Certainly there are some great tunes and imagery included in every track. The performances are passionate and joyful where needed. Kim and Chris do a great job on their lead vocals, and the others also bring a different dynamic to the album. Chris McClarney’s “Everything and Nothing Less” seems somehow more welcome on this album than when included on his own album of the same name.
Overall this is an excellent taste of modern worship which will encourage you, but more importantly will make you think about God, who He is and His fierce love!
