Tim HugHes Love Shine Through (Kingsway) FOR FANS OF: Martin Smith, Matt Redman QQQQ Tim Hughes first studio album in four years reads like a veritable worship All- Star game given the players and co-writers involved. Yet Hughes signature melodic touch stands taller on Love Shine Through with beautiful refrains on “Counting on Your Name” and “Never Stop Singing.” Artists like Phil Wickham, Martin Smith and others might enhance the landscape, but Hughes is a worship powerhouse on his own. –Matt Conner WE LIKE: “Counting On Your Name” sTuarT Townend The Journey (Kingsway) FOR FANS OF: Robin Mark, Keith & Kristyn Getty, Audrey Assad QQQQ Taking Psalm 81 to heart, famed worship songwriter Stuart Townend (“In Christ Alone,” “The Power of the Cross”) incorporates bright horns, clanging cymbals, scurrying strings and pedaled accordions to strike up a colorful chorus of worship on his latest full-length. Sometimes boisterous, The Journey is overwhelmingly tender, using slow-rolling banjos, gentle fiddles and dobros to address subject matter both holy and human, while imbuing his gracious hymnody with gentle reminders of redemption through Christ. –Andrew Greer WE LIKE: “By Faith” dave & Jess ray Music For the Radio (Independent) FOR FANS OF: MercyMe, Meredith Andrews, Tenth Avenue North QQQQ With every penny earned benefiting Aid Sudan’s Radio Station Project, the espoused Houstonian worship leaders soak an impacting six-song tracklist with compelling pop energy and faith-in-action lyrics. Effectively alternating lead vocals, the Ray’s proclaim faith in a way that is both radio-ready and yet starkly poignant, best exampled in album closer “Into the Night”: Who will follow as our Savior leads/We must love each other not with words/But with action and the proof of deeds. –Andrew Greer WE LIKE: “Into the Night” Tricia Brock The Road (INO Records) FOR FANS OF: Superchick QQQQ For any Tricia Brock fans worried for the solo apple as it falls from the Superchick tree, you need not. The beautiful melodies, immediate hooks and resonant lyrics pervading Brock’s solo debut, The Road, make the album an instant hit. Beginning to end, The Road is a dynamite release and this large bandwagon is intended for far more than Superchick fans already in-house. –Matt Conner WE LIKE: “Breath of God” worsHip reviews All release dates and album titles are subject to change.
