Artist: Casting Crowns
Album: The Very Next Thing
Label: Provident Label Group
“The Very Next Thing”, the highly anticipated new album from Casting Crowns, has arrived — and it is nothing short of amazing! Mark Hall and the entire Casting Crowns team have delivered a project that is powerful and passionate! Here is a ministry team that has released 14 prior albums (totaling over 10 million units sold) in 13 years. And this particular release sounds just as great as the first!
The big songs, from and to the heart of the Church, just keep coming from these folks! Continuing a strong tradition of songs that are full of truth and lend a voice to today’s generation, these new tunes are marked by uncommon spiritual depth and rich theology. Unabashedly articulated throughout the entire album is a clear call to the Church to consider the grace and call of Christ and to respond- now! Standout new favorites of mine include One Step Away, For All You Are, Oh My Soul, God of All My Days, When the Godman Passes By, and No Other Name.
Refreshingly, the strength of the songs doesn’t require a lot of environmental production stunts or ear candy. True to form, the band is bold and the vocals are gripping! A few hints of southern rock and grass roots gospel round out this album with a prevailing sense of honesty and authenticity that is absolutely captivating.
As long as the Lord keeps speaking to these folks, I hope they will keep sharing it with the rest of the world! Thanks, Casting Crowns and Provident Label Group, for such enduring ministry. You all are a blessing.
