When you listen to this well, there isn’t listening but worshipping going on. Immediately you feel God’s love power tenderness and presence. Absolutely amazing and top worshipful albums of mine.

Best of 2018

Saint Lewis Band

Pat Barrett’s self-titled solo worship debut overflows with memorable, easily reproducible corporate anthems for the church. It's everything a follower of his previous releases (with Housefires, Grace Midtown, & Unhindered) & fans of Chris Tomlin could hope for, & more.

Featuring both a number of the ‘greatest hits’ from his previous Housefire projects, & at it’s core, the same raw “live in your living room” approach, the songs both new & old are given new life with light production flourishes around the edges, walking that thin line between “organic” & “polished” in a way that feels perfect for these songs.

The highlights are many.

“Info Faith I Go” is a beautiful, confessional song, with an immediately gripping chorus melody, & refreshing phrasing.

“The Way (New Horizon)” is the obvious first single, uplifting, & catching from the opening note. This would be an obvious Sunday morning pick: the lyrics are profoundly Biblical & vertical, & the melody is effortless and memorable.

“Better” is my personal favorite, sharing all of the winning characteristics of “The Way,” but with a disarming spontaneous, quiet moment at the song’s end. I cannot wait to lead this!

“Build my Life” is one of the most popular Housefires songs, but here the song shines even brighter, set aflame by the crisp production & the subtle the notable electric guitar work. Again, I cannot wait to lead this, too.

“Hymn of the Holy Spirit” is an excellent modern hymn of the faith, vertical, & confessional - the chorus is part bold proclamation & part prayer, & altogether lovely.

“Sparrows & Lilies” is like Pat channeling James Taylor, & though maybe not ideal for Sunday-morning singing, it’s an encouraging listen that’ll leave a huge smile on your face.

“Sails,” featuring Bethel worship leaders, Stefanny Gretzinger & Amanda Cook, is the song that will likely stick with me the longest from this release. An ideal special for a duet or trio to use an as altar-call, don’t be surprised when the whole room rises to their feet to join in, loudly singing “Let out the sails of my heart - here I am, here You are!”

“Over half of these tracks are highlights?”, You may ask. Yes - yes they are. In fact, this whole release is a highlight, & likely stands as my family’s favorite worship release of 2018 so far.

Amazing Album

The Most Uplifting

This Is Greatness In The Making For Sure!!!!!
