Building 429 ‘Live the Journey’ Album Review

Building 429
Live the Journey
(Essential Records)

Building 429’s name comes from Ephesians 4:29, and the Dove Award-winning band has made a career out of making songs that build others up. The band’s newest album, Live the Journey, is no exception. This is an album full of positive and edifying rock and roll. “1,000 Promises,” “Assurance,” and “You Can” are full of reminders of God’s power and glory, and themes of His goodness resonate throughout the entire record.

Where this album really shines is in its encouragement to those who are hurting. With songs like “The Journey” and “Shame Doesn’t Live Here,” the band sings about God’s faithfulness to meet us where we are—that we don’t have to have it all together to find His love. Building 429 continues to make powerful rock anthems that glorify God and build up His children.
