iTunes Review

Guitar-powered prayers and mighty-lunged hosannas are all the rage in Christian rock right now, and Phil Wickham stands above the pack by virtue of his luminous, heart-tugging voice and how he applies it. Wickham’s singing style has a sensuous undercurrent that’s uniquely his own and combined with the reverent, almost childlike tone he brings to his lyrics, the result can be transfixing. The songs here mostly fall into to the worship category, with the praise-filled “Must I Wait” and “Spirit Fall” bracketing the album’s tracks. Wickham brings color and atmosphere to his prayerful expressions, invoking the thrill of a pilgrim’s quest in “Sailing On A Ship” and embracing a pantheistic vision in “Beautiful.” While much of the album has a familiar U2-meets-Coldplay sound, “The Light Will Come” has an acoustic-centered British folk feel, while “Shining” invites comparisons with ’80-era David Bowie(!). In the end, the focus always returns to Wickham’s compelling vocals and their ability to invoke rapture, longing and devotion. He turns Cannons into a work of strength and delicacy, worthy of the sanctified message it conveys.

Customer Reviews

a relevant worship leader for our generation...

Phil has done it again with Cannons, a great and more mature follow-up to his self-titled release. Phil has a genuine heart for God that bleeds through his songs, lifted up by his uniquely strong vocal melodies crafted over brit-pop inspired guitar work. It is SO REFRESHING to hear a Christian whose music can actually stand on its own but that doesn't skimp on authentic, challenging spiritual lyrics. I truly believe that Phil is a voice of our generation. And the song "True Love" - my oh my. My only complaint about this album is that it might be almost over-produced at times. But maybe I only say that because I love the rawness of just Phil and an acoustic guitar as well. If you've never heard Phil, you're missing out. Think of music that sounds a bit like Coldplay, Keane, etc and beautiful soaring vocals that sound a bit like Rufus Wainwright or Muse, but a sound that overall is unique in its own right. I anxiously anticipated this release, and was not let down. Incredible job, Phil. Keep doing what you're doing. You are ushering in God's presence to the nations. What a privilege.

Better, Brighter - Cannons will Blow you Away

This man's heart echos the cry of my own. I've cried many-a-time, just basking in the beauty that is Phil Wickham's love for Christ put to song. For anyone who's ever longed for Heaven, Hope, and Christ's embrace, BUY THIS ALBUM! I cannot say enough about Phil's talent, so here I will end. Thank you Phil, for your heart and your voice turned to praise He that is Lord of all!

Best Full Album I have heard

I have purchased hundreds of songs off of itunes, but never hit the "buy album" button. Generally with artists there will eb two or three songs I love, and the rest I don't care about. Until Phil Wickham. This is the first time I have ever listened to each 30-second song and realized that I wanted them all. It is incredible. Phil Wickham has SUCH an incredible talent and love for God, and it is with pride that I make him my first full-album artist. Thanks for sharing your incredible music with us.
