iTunes Editors’ Notes

Singer/songwriter John Mark McMillan follows in the footsteps of such eloquent Christian rock pioneers as Keith Green and Mark Heard in these visionary songs, filling his lyrics with vivid, almost surreal images of suffering and resurrection. Those who know McMillan as the writer of “How He Loves” (popularized by the David Crowder Band) will find the artist’s own recorded work to be unexpectedly broad in sound and diverse in approach. Songs like “Skeleton Bones,” “Carbon Ribs” and “Belly of the Lion” have a cinematic quality in their depiction of broken urban landscapes, lost highways and desperate souls waiting for salvation. The epochal “Reckoning Day” is a particularly compelling portrait of a coming Rapture amidst the chaos of modern America. “Philadelphia” and “Carolina Tide” capture a small-town Southern ambiance through their telling lyric details and bluesy shadings. Straight-ahead worship tunes like “My Only” are delivered with a disarming sincerity and humble strength. By turns quirky, startling and inspirational, The Medicine is a potent tonic for the spirit.

Just get it!

You'll know from the previews... this is music that didn't go through the ccm "machine". Glad Integrity didn't try and change it. it's honest and raw and AWESOME!

southern grease and spiritual potency

like a sage with a pan of cornbread, john mark is a great example of southern infused grit as it meets the issues of life, love, and god. dig it. been listening to it and love it.

John Mark really displays God's love through this work of art

This artist is heavily unnoticed and it is remarkable that most people have not really shed much light on this man. He truely is a man of God and the Lord has blessed him with amazing musical talent. This album is beautiful and includes a very honest and transparent look into the story behind the heavily-popular "How He Loves" single. Buy it! Praise God!
