With his American Idol-sized voice and longstanding presence in Christian music, Chris Sligh has never stayed in the same place artistically for too long, but rather, continuously pushes his creativity. In fact, this two-part project that was several years in the making is characterized by a mini Requiem Mass, followed by a more pop-minded back half based around liturgically-inspired thoughts. To those who’ve been close followers of his explorations, A Modern Liturgy (buy) could be taken exactly as its title illustrates, yet even those who mainly remember him from that smash show are also in for some spine-chilling inspiration thanks to this gorgeously crafted blend of tried and true praises with his own prayers. Sonically, the collection boasts everything from anthemic ballads, electronic bursts, moving choir parts and the tricky ability to translate the flavor of a massive church or a dance floor (depending on the tune) into a tiny pair of headphones.
