Album Review

The introduction of this Canadian quartet's soulful "speakeasy gospel" could hardly be a more welcome contrast to the derivative pop and rock that was dominating CCM radio at the time of their self-titled release. A delightfully rhythmic blend of '50s-style soul, '70s-style funk and '90s-style jam rock, Newworldson's debut hinted at their dynamic live shows.
