sanCTus real Pieces of Our Past: the Sanctus real anthology (Sparrow) FOR FANS OF: Switchfoot, MercyMe, Kutless QQQ Including a trio of discs from their CCM-lauded catalog—2004’s Fight the Tide (“epitome of tight”), 2006’s The Face of Love (“flawless execution”) and 2008’s We Need Each Other (“brilliantly written pop”)—Pieces of Our Past archives Sanctus real’s Grammy-nominated discography for fans unfamiliar with the band prior to Pieces of a Real Heart’s 2010 blockbuster success, while offering loyal listeners a price-pointed retrospective, though all tracks have been previously released. –Andrew Greer WE LIKE: “I’m Not Alright” BarloWgirl Our Journey…So Far (Fervent) FOR FANS OF: Rebecca St. James, Krystal Meyers QQQ If you’ve followed BarlowGirl closely over the last decade (i.e. purchased every disc), then their 10-year retrospective, Our Journey…So Far, holds absolutely no value. If, however, you’ve missed a disc here or there of the sisters’ distinctive rock brand, then the 15 tunes (and one remix) here are worth getting hold of. Chart-topping hits like “Never Alone” and “I Need You To Love Me” are present alongside a surprising four tracks from their most recent Love & War. –Matt Conner WE LIKE: “I Need You To Love Me” Coffey anderson Coffey (dream records) FOR FANS OF: Blake Shelton, Jack Johnson, Blessid Union of Souls QQQ After finding international fame as a contestant of “Nashville Star,” Coffey Anderson finally releases his label debut. Though the program was country- slanted in nature, the singer/songwriter switches between that style, pop, folk, worship and soul on Cd which follows in the footsteps of an equally diverse opening act resume (including Chris Tomlin, Boyz II Men and Trace Adkins). Add in poignant, vertically- inspired songwriting, and it won’t be long before Anderson’s right in step with the prominent company he’s already keeping. –Andy Argyrakis WE LIKE: “You Are All I’m After” adulT ConTemporary revieWs All release dates and album titles are subject to change.
