My Best Album Of 2009
is a tie between
Identity Crisis (Tedashii)
Intelligent gospel-saturated Hip-hop delivered with passion and clarity
Read the review.
The Christian/Not Christian band for the Crowder generation stepped up to the plate and hit the ball out of the park. Then walked into the car park and hit the ball back into the park. Then did handstands on the piano.
Read my review - part one, part two.
Best Praise & Worship Album (by a mile)
Awaken The Dawn (Keith & Kristyn Getty)
Shame on me for not writing about this album before now. A great group of writers (the Gettys plus Stuart Townend) write theologically profound songs that real people can actually sing! But the killer one-two punch is Kristyn's beautiful voice on top of some incredibly 'right', gimmick-free arrangements. Stand out tracks - Creation Sings The Father's Song & Still, My Soul, Be Still.
Read a few recommendations. Soul Audio
Jamie Brown (NB DO NOT judge the song Creation Sings on the awful Youtube version!)
Best Free Album
Thru You (Kutiman)
I have to give an honourable mention to Lyrycyst's Revolution, but this is why the Internet exists. Listen to it, ponder how it was made and then try and argue that copyright law doesn't need to evolve (if you dare).
Read my original post.
I'm sure you disagree. I can take it.
Who would YOU put here?
