EDITORS’ NOTES

Wow Gospel 2017 reflects the tremendous amount of diversification the genre has undergone in the previous decade. The soul-charging “Chasing Me Down” captures Israel & New Breed’s boundary-breaking blend of funky vocal acrobatics and worship’s rock-based drive. Spellbindingly vulnerable, Jonathan McReynolds’ acoustic heartbreaker “Pressure” crosses over into folk music. The compilation also boasts plenty of traditional stars, including Richard Smallwood, whose “You Brought Me” explodes with timeless, ecstatic emotion reminiscent of the genre’s Southern origins.

It is what it is, but what it is too often is corny and pigeon holed.

I respect that people dig this music and find it uplifting, but it's often thick, whiny or unrelatably self loathing. Best example is Kirk Franklin who makes a career of just talking like a cadence man......I don't get that or find it musical in any way. Granted there are talents here but the praise and desperation theme becomes tedious and not relatable for ther down to earth day to day. Christian Underground music like Deepspace 5 crew or Emery seem much more thought provoking , interesting, fun and relatable. Outside of the 'church' atmosphere to make universally 'palettable' music in a group setting, this music won't be bangin in cars not sporting 'church' clothes.
