iTunes Editors’ Notes

There’s a classy, well-sculpted quality to The City Harmonic’s sophomore album, inviting comparisons to such iconic bands as U2, Coldplay, and Keene. What’s most important about Heart, though, is the intensity of its Christian message, embodied in lyrics that combine personal testimony with corporate worship. Singer/keyboardist Elias Dummer avoids rock-star grandstanding as he leads his bandmates through atmospheric, slowly unfolding ballads and arena-sized anthems, fleshed out with tasteful electronica and ambient musical touches. The opening “Here & There” sets the tone for the album with its vivid invocation of spiritual rebirth. Big, celebratory praise songs like “Alive, Alive” and “Glory” gain impact from shimmering, Britpop-style arrangements; rootsy acoustic tracks like “Brand New” and “Long Walk Home” sing their praises in mellower but no less enraptured tones. Worthy of special notice are “Love, Heal Me” (sung with simple grace by bassist Eric Fusilier) and “1+1” (a celebration of marriage dressed up with swooning guitar and set to a waltz tempo). An ethereal reimagining of the hymn “My Jesus, I Love Thee” complements the band’s original tunes.

Customer Reviews

Phenomenal Album.

I have a friend from Canada who got me this album early. Every track is filled with such raw power and emotion. "Here and There" is such a powerful opener that it literally sets the tone for the rest of the album. Expect greatness from this album and this band. Even better than their previous album and EP. Hats off to you, gentleman. Congrats on another hit album.

Lost Sound

The album is decent worship. But it completely misses the Brit pop rock style that made the band relevant to a new generation. Hits such as I Have A Dream or Manifesto gave ten times the good music than what they show here. As a worship album it's okay. But as a follow up to their debut it sadly falls short by a lot.

Can't wait!

When I stumbled across the EP several years ago, I was so excited about these guys. Unfortunately "I Have a Dream" left me disappointed. So I was a little skeptical about "Heart...." ...until I heard the preview. Wow! I can't wait to get full album tomorrow. They've rediscovered the sound that blew me away originally. I found myself just wanting to close my eyes and listen to even the pieces of the songs. A must have!
