This is really beautiful. I love Brian's voice :) it's really encouraging to see artists showing their faith
Beyond my expectations
I rarely write reviews of CDs or anything else, but I felt I should with this CD. I saw Brian and the team at a special event last week in Apgujeong, Seoul, where they performed a few selections from this album. I had the chance to buy the physical CD for about $12. I wasn't sure how much I'd like the music, but I thought it was worth the chance since the proceeds go to Africa to help needy children there.
When I listened to the music, I couldn't believe how good it was. It was far beyond my expectations. I've listened to it while cooking, walking, riding on the subway, and even falling asleep. I am disappointed with most Christian music today; it seems to be more of a show or performance than actual worship to God. In the realm of Christian pop today, where most music seems to sound similar, the music on this album is so refreshingly different, and easy to worship to.
Buy on iTunes to save a dollar and get the bonus videos and digital booklet. Or spend a dollar more to get the physical CD from their website (and probably more money will go to charity).
If you are resolute against buying the whole CD, do anyway; it's for a good cause. But if you're looking for individual tracks, my favorites are 2, 3 (so amazing), 6 (Choi Siwon's heart is so apparent in this song), and 8.
if this is the next wave of Christian music we have a lot to look forward to. We're called to be bold and unashamed of our faith and there's a quiet movement to reflect this at our workplace and not just in our personal lives ... including for mainstream artists.
