EDITORS’ NOTES

Celebrating 20 years as a Christian pop trio, Phillips, Craig & Dean reaffirm their artistic strengths on Breathe In. From the start, Phillips, Craig & Dean have emphasized faith's uplifting side, moving naturally to worship music in recent years. Breathe In sings God's praises and delves into the need for individual believers to find healing. The lead single, “When the Stars Burn Down,” takes a widescreen view of Judgment Day against a backdrop of chiming guitars and feedback washes. The trio celebrates resurrection in “These Bones,” surrounding their voices with a bright country-pop arrangement. The minor chords framing “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” add poignancy to its hopeful lyrics. Reverent expressions like the surging “Great and Glorious” and the hymnlike “All Is Well” are both heartfelt and smoothly crafted. Producers Bertie Herms and Nathan Nockles give the trio’s trademark harmonies room to shine while keeping the tracks clean and contemporary. Polished in its presentation and plainspoken in its message, Breathe In is a fine addition to PC&D’s inspirational catalog.
