Building 429: ‘Unashamed’ album review

Ever since they took home the Dove Award for New Artist of the Year in 2005, Building 429 have established themselves as one of the top pop/rock groups in all of Christian music. Mega-hits like “Listen To The Sound,” “Where I Belong” and “We Won’t Be Shaken” all settled near the top of the charts in recent years, turning Jason Roy and company into a headlining act and one of Christian music’s surest bets.

Unashamed follows suit with a radio-ready 10-song set of encouraging songs for the church. “GO” moves the church toward the marginalized with a memorable mid-tempo refrain. The title track is a worshipful track that should find some congregational use, as should “Ocean Deep” as an inspiring song about the mercy and grace of God. “Eyes Up” is a Bruno Mars-esque number that’s a simple ear-worm to kick off the album.

Given the tremendous success of Building 429’s last few albums, it’s hard not to project the same for Unashamed.
