In many ways, Jeremy Horn’s Sound of the Broken harks back to the British Invasion–inspired sound that Phil Keaggy and Randy Stonehill made popular in the early years of Christian rock. His high tenor vocals and aggressive yet melodic guitar style lend a visceral energy to his messages of praise and redemption. Horn’s ongoing role as worship leader at Memphis’ Christ the Rock Church brings a spiritual heft to these tracks, inviting serious reflection amid the ringing riffs and surging tempos. Tracks like “Now Is the Time,” “Surrender,” and the title tune are anthems of spiritual commitment that reflect on both human weakness and God’s healing love. “Sons and Daughters” offers a message of unity in Christ, set to an uplifting blend of guitars and keyboards. As a lyricist, Horn brings a wide-eyed sense of reverence to songs such as “Father of Lights” and “Emptiness,” culminating in the hosannas of the shimmering ballad “This Reflection.” In all these tracks, Horn carries himself with a joyful heart and positive spirit, qualities reflected in his propulsive rhythms and lightly woven textures.
