Editors’ Notes

Profoundly reverent with a mystical tinge, Josh Garrels’ sixth album is the work of a spiritual pilgrim seeking hope amidst a landscape of human conflict and oppression. Love & War & The Sea In Between is the most fully-realized work yet from this gifted singer/songwriter, deeply Christian in its message yet accessible to a wider audience thanks to its bold mix of acoustic, orchestral and electronica sounds. Garrels’ vocals — wooly-textured, with an eerie upper range — are at the center of the album’s swirling, multi-faceted arrangements, giving his vividly prophetic lyrics a visceral power. The promise of salvation from the cruelties of the world lends a cinematic sweep to tracks like “The Resistance,” “Rise” and “Revelator; “Ulysses” and “Slip Away” frame themes of alienation and betrayal in more personal but no less compelling terms. From the silken, evocative groove of “White Owl” to the dreamy folk balladry of “Beyond the Blue,” Garrels ranges far sonically yet never loses direction. Love & War & The Sea In Between captures the struggle between faith and fear with poetic insight and musical grandeur.

Customer Reviews

Christian Music is now COOL

I'm 24 and until recently had a very hard time getting into contemporary Christian music. This past year Jesus Culture, Hillsong, Kristian Stanfill really started to grow on me, but it wasn't until Josh Garrels that I realized that Christian Music doesn't have to be, well, lame. Garrels is mind-blowing. This album/artist captures all of the great things I used to value about secular music combined with poetic spiritual lyrics. The spirt of God is truly with Josh Garrels and this album (as well as his previous ones) has increased my faith and worship!!

Did I mention he and his music are just…cool?

Favorite Album of the year

This is currently my favorite album of the year.


Josh has always produced amazing albums, and this is a testament to that fact. Every song brings on a new style of music and grabs you from the start. This album is the best album he has released, which is hard to believe because the rest of his albums are ridiculously amazing.
