W ORSH I P Soulfire Revolution Afterglow (Dream) FOR FANS OF: Hillsong Young & Free QQQ Colombian worship band Soulfire Revolution was an instant hit in the U.S. with their debut, Revival. Their follow-up, Afterglow, will further establish them as a favorite among modern worship bands. These dance-hall-ready anthems are easily accessible and accomplish their purpose of ushering vibrant celebration. The wide emotional range of Hillsong’s youthful releases are a good reference point for those who’ve not yet joined Soulfire Revolution for a worship session. –Matt Conner WE LIKE: “We Will Rise Up” AC Eleven22 Worship Before All Things (Self-released) For fans of: Jesus Culture, Planetshakers, Hillsong United QQQ Holly Starr Everything I Need (Artist Garden Entertainment) FOR FANS OF: Kari Jobe, Plumb, Love & The Outcome QQQQ Before All Things, the third album from Florida- based Eleven22 Worship, is equipped with many potential corporate-worship standards. Most likely to wind up in a local Sunday setlist is the powerful “Locked Up Death.” Soaring lyrically, the standout proclaims Locked up death / Buried the key / Your grace pours out and covers me. Musically, the album weaves a subtle path between worship genre favorites, the more memorable moments following the throwback trend of 80s-influenced synth pop. Just 24 but already four projects into a recording career that’s netted a pair of Top 25 singles (even as an indie artist), Holly Starr is clearly ahead of the curve throughout this latest melodic pop/contemporary Christian collection. Across seven tracks, the singer- songwriter shuffles between the personal and the praise- worthy with a newfound assurance, while production from Scott and Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe) helps further frame her gorgeous vocal range, perhaps best displayed on ballads like “My Father’s Love” and “God Is.” –Jamie Walker We Like: Locked Up Death –Andy Argyrakis WE LIKE: “Never Going Back” CCMMagazine.com
