Spotify Albums of the Month – July 2009

Last month was a little disappointing in terms of new Christian music on Spotify, but here’s the best of what I’ve been listening to recently:

Some New Albums

David OstbyBecause of You Polished production of worship songs from a Norwegian worship leader. Whilst I doubt any of the songs will become mainstream in the UK, the standard of song-writing is high, and Ostby is probably one to watch for the future. The title track, “All because of you” is the strongest.

Rating: ★★★★☆
Brandon BeeThis is the Revolution This is an album from a producer turned solo artist. The sound is somewhat similar to Phil Wickham, but featuring heavier guitar work. “Your holiness” is my favourite track.

Rating: ★★★½☆
Michael BahnPure Another worship-leader album, featuring the same sound as, well, all the other worship leader albums I have been listening to recently. Again, the song-writing is of a consistent quality. “You are in control” and “I believe” are my favourites. A solid, if unspectacular album.

Rating: ★★★½☆
Nick BattleKing of My Heart I’m not sure this one deserved its 10/10 rating from Cross Rhythms, but it is an interesting collection from this producer/songwriter with the help of several guest vocalists/collaborators. The styles are varied, and not all were exactly to my taste. The folksy “All the Kings Horses” is probably pick of the bunch for me.

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Some Singles

Here are a few recently released singles from some excellent artists which I am hoping will be followed up with the availability of the full albums soon…

  1. Cross Rhythms ratings happen to be one of my favourite sources of amusement. Thanks for all those recommendations.
