Different kind of post today – a brief review of Mercy Me’s latest record, Welcome To The New. At first listen, I didn’t really like it- it was too different than all – and I do mean all – other worship music in style and … Tone is the only word I can think of.
But, after some time with it, I’ve changed that opinion. This is brilliant. Pure power pop, with an incredible array of musical genres. The songs are produced and arranged like “real” secular hits but incredibly, through the lyrics, maintain with no doubts the reverence of the deep subject matter: the Good News.
I highly recommend this record!
