The Return of the King  (Paradigm Collective)
by The Royal Royal

FOR FANS OF: Newsboys
Rating: 2 Stars

There are inspired moments on The Royal Royal’s full-length debut, The Return of the King, that draw the listener in—the spacious approach of “Light A Fire” and pop appeal of “The Lights,” to name a few. Unfortunately the earnest sincerity of the Canadian duo is outdone by endless repetition and underwhelming melodies on tracks such as “A Real Strength” or “Every Little Bit of Praise.”

WE LIKE: “Light A Fire”
