When youve sold millions of records and delivered great singles such as Who Am I, Voice of Truth and Praise You in This Storm, the arrival of a new album carries a high level of expectation. The good news is Casting Crowns once again meets and exceeds those high expectations with this compelling new release. Lead vocalist/principal songwriter Mark Hall and his group have made a point to stay grounded in their home church, not letting their music industry success interfere with the foundation of their music ministry; and the wisdom in that decision can be heard in these powerful songs.
As a songwriter, Hall has the ability to create stirring anthems, easily embraced by the masses, and he also has a gift for penning achingly vulnerable, introspective songs that often make individuals feel hes been reading their journals. Slow Fade, for instance, is a cautionary tale urging believers to make the right choices. The potent hook line states, People never crumble in a day, its a slow fade.
The track The Word is Alive is a celebration of the power of Gods Word and its impact. What This World Needs is a hard-driving number with more of a rock edge than Crowns usual radio fare that boasts an in-your-face lyric about the current state of our society. Prayer For a Friend is a sweet, simple song of intercession with a pretty melody and heartfelt vocal performance by Hall. The title track is the type of radio-friendly yet lyrically substantive song that has propelled Casting Crowns career thus far.
With this new set, Hall and his companions again deliver songs that are musically engaging and lyrically insightful. The band has a gift for being entertaining, challenging, thought-provoking and encouraging all within the course of one finely crafted album. Few acts more eloquently capture the complexities of being a Christian in todays tumultuous world, but these fine folks continue to help light the path for the rest of us.
