All the key singles show up (“Testify To Love,” “Can’t Live A Day,” “Always Have, Always Will”), though more than a particular tune, fans are most likely to fawn over the group’s joyful and downright heavenly harmonies. –Andy Argyrakis WE LIKE: “Come And Fill My Heart” BeBo norman Lights of Distant Cities (BEC Recordings) FOR FANS OF: Aaron Shust, Caedmon’s Call, Jason Gray QQQQ Bebo Norman’s latest album was borne out of what Norman calls, “a long, slow progression, or digression, into a spiritual desert.” His vulnerability serves him well, especially on songs, “At The End of Me,” and “Collide.” Lights of Distant Cities is a testament to the goodness of the Lord, and the beauty of tangible songwriting. –Grace S. Aspinwall Jason CasTro starting Line eP (Word) FOR FANS OF: Jason Mraz, Chris August, Jack Johnson QQQQ “American Idol” favorite turned blockbuster recording artist Jason Castro gives fans a sneak peak of his third full length Only A Mountain (out January 15) with this instantly infectious EP. The five track offering shines with retro pop sensibility, the singer/songwriter’s easygoing croon and edifying but simultaneously seeker sensitive lyrics that chronicle his proactive faith journey. –Andy Argyrakis WE LIKE: “Staring Line” miCHael milTon When heaven Came Down (Music For Missions/Ingram Distribution) FOR FANS OF: Neil Young, Steven Curtis Chapman QQQ This collection of carefully curated songs from Michael Milton is perfect for the upcoming Christmas season. Many of the songs (including “Oh How Tender Was The Man” with its lilting piano backing) are also appropriate year-round. –Grace S. Aspinwall WE LIKE: “In The Fullness of Time” WE LIKE: “Just A Glimpse” CCMMagazine.coM
