Revival (Capitol CMG/ Sparrow Records)
by Soulfire Revolution

FOR FANS OF: Hillsong United, For King and Country
Rating: 2 Stars

With cameos from TobyMac and Martin Smith, there are a few solid moments on this project, particularly in the vocals and arrangements on, “Count The Stars.” “Place of Surrender” also shows off the band’s talent with a Hillsongesque bridge, but the rest of the album is lackluster and a bit simplistic. More creative energy and intricate instrumentation will work well for them in the future.
