The White Room: Deluxe Edition by Jonathan Thulin – Great additions to an already great album!

The White Room takes Jonathan Thulin beyond the American Idol balladry of his debut and showcases a serious and relevant artist with songs that could as easily be heard on mainstream Pop radio and push CCM beyond its traditional boundaries.  The first half of The White Room is a template in making good pop music.  The smashing, “Bad Romance” influenced, opener “Masquerade” and the militant “Coat of Arms” (which sounds like a dubstep mash up of OneRepublic’s “All The Right Moves” and Jordin Sparks’ “Battlefield” with a dash of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” thrown in for good measure) are exactly the type

The White Room by Jonathan Thulin – A template for what CCM Pop music should sound like

The Background Jonathan Thulin first crossed my path about a few years ago when he released an imagery driven, Lady Gaga-esque music video for his powerful single “Babylon”.  New Release Tuesday did a big feature on the video and it soon became the most viewed Christian Music Video on the social media site.  I was a bit confused and creeped out by the video but I fell in love with the song itself and its message.  While it was released in 2010, it was the most played song on my iPod for 2012 and continues to be a favorite of mine.

Just Kids by Mat Kearney – Woah, talk about a throwback.

This album is something I didn’t know I wanted or needed until I heard it. There is so much nostalgia in this album. If you think back to the start of his career (I’m talking 2003) you’ll recognize his sound. He’s changed so much, but some how mixing his new sound with the old created magic. I haven’t stopped listening to the album since it came out and I probably won’t stop

Fightback Soundtrack by We Are Leo – Great return!

  For those who have heard of We are Leo are used to the great  mixture of rock mixed in with pop and electriconica music. But as We are Leo announced its signing to DREAM label, I began to be afraid that  they would change their musiclike so many other great bands had done signing to a big label. But never fear, the band returns with the utmost power while staying with their original style.

No Filter by Json – An Honest Answer

With his sixth album, No Filter, Json brings us an album filled with honesty about his identity and our identity alongside anthems that we can shout to make a defining statement of who we are according to the Word of God. I enjoyed reviewing this album since Json’s fourth album Growing Pains was one of the first albums I ever reviewed, and I have followed his progression closely since. No Filter carries a clear theme throughout, similar to what Growing Pains did, and although not as personal (by Json’s own admittance), the album is powerful.   The majority
