Artist: Phillips, Craig & Dean
Album: above it all
Label: Fair Trade
From one of the most highly acclaimed Christian artists of all time, Phillips, Craig, and Dean, comes a much anticipated new album that is energetic, revitalizing, and full of great new songs! “above it all”, produced by Nathan Nockels and Seth Mosley, is marked by the rich PCD vocal harmonies that fans have loved for over 20 years. In addition to the powerhouse ballads, soul-stirring anthems of praise, and intimate moments of honest reflection you would expect from these guys, there is a youthful infusion of European pop influence in a few tracks, making this a project that will undoubtedly reach people of all ages.
A few new congregational worship songs grabbed my ear and heart right away: Throne of Praise, High Above It All, and Hope Has A Name are ideal for any corporate worship gathering. Additionally, my heart was moved by these powerful songs of deeply impacting ministry: Come As You Are, If Not For Grace, and Voices From the Other Side, tunes that speak straight to the heart of real life circumstance and point people to the mercy, grace, love, forgiveness, and hope they can only find in Jesus Christ.
As has always been the case with Phillips, Craig, and Dean, at every moment on this album one can easily grasp that these are three guys who possess an uncommon depth of understanding of the Word of God. A pastoral heart beats within every measure of the music and is poignantly discernible in the solid lyrical content, so rooted in Scripture.
This album contains something for everyone from the unabashed passionate worshiper to the one who is discouraged, broken, and searching for hope. If you don’t own this project, do your heart a favor and get it today. You’ll receive a blessing!
