Album Review

Canadian-born Christian singer/songwriter Matt Maher returns with a collection of upbeat tunes that explore both personal topics and heartfelt religious devotions with his fifth widely available album, Saints & Sinners. Following his well-received 2013 full-length All the People Said Amen, Maher worked again with noted Nashville producer Paul Moak to sculpt the album's sound, a full-bodied reading of contemporary alternative radio pop with an emphasis on Maher's jubilant vocals. The album was written during a time of personal uncertainty for Maher, who looked to his music and his faith for guidance. Saints & Sinners was preceded by the release of first single "Because He Lives (Amen)."

Customer Reviews

Because He Lives!!! (An awesome album for a troubled time)

I must say, like all “one offs” that artists release before their actual album, I was a bit skeptical of Because He Lives (Amen). Keywords “a bit”. The song is SO powerful, so inspiring, so thought provoking, and so worshipful that I continue to loop it on my iPhone for hours on end. Matt Maher, if you have never heard of him before this album, is a crazily gifted song writer from Newfoundland Canada. He’s released 7 studio albums including this one and has written dozens of great classics such as, ‘Your Grace Is Enough”, “White Flag”, “Turn Around”, “Hold Us Together”, “Christ is Risen” and “Lord I Need You”. Honestly, this new single just might be the greatest song he’s ever done; after singing it in church twice I’ve found no substitute for Jesus praising anthems on the radio at all. Honestly, the one song available is so good, I just might be willing to pay $12.99 for it alone. However, knowing Matt Maher and his extremely well done previous albums, I can guarantee you this work of art will be worth every cent.

Little details

Awesome to have 18 tracks. Music is lyrically thought provoking. Love Matt Maher. I was just wanting more from the opening track I wished it was a full song LONGER:(
My reason for not giving the full five stars is the mixing on this album when listening to it in my car at the same volume from track the waiting into because he lives there was a shift in volume and that was not cool for me. Only because the waiting is leading you into Because he lives at a high volume then suddenly drops volume. Not coo. I want it the same volume.
Unfortunately you can't always get what you want.

Album of the Year

Highly anticipated after the success of his last album, All the People Said Amen, this compelling album Saints and Sinners is an excellent follow-up. The album keeps Matt’s signature holy energy flowing, and has plenty more songs that you’ll soon be singing with fellow believers. The album perfectly captures the penetrating spirit and charisma Matt Maher’s worship songs have become known for. Maher’s theological, holy and reverent style of writing and singing worship songs has consistently attracted me. Several of Maher’s new prayerful sentiments should be added to your Sunday morning worship set, especially “A Future Not My Own,” “Deliverer,” “Glory Bound,” “Because He Lives (Amen),” and the gorgeous ballads “Abide with Me” and “Rest.” This album provides listeners with vertical offerings to God that you can sing in any circumstance, and this is my Album of the Year.
