Passionate Portrayal of Love | Posted September 13, 2011
In beckoning beauty comes Jeremy Riddle, singer/songwriter and recent new addition to Bethel Church's stable of anointed worship leaders in Redding, Calif. With healing and soaring anthems, Riddle's third album, Furious, is a profound worship experience.
 
In a hushing and acoustic invitation, “Fall Afresh” calls for the Holy Spirit to not only show up, but fill every part of the individual. The song calls for renewed hunger, seeking, and thirst in Him. An undeniable top of the lung worship tune, “Furious,” comes in rock-fused attire that captures the album's entity. 
 
As Riddle himself states, “It's hard to come up with words that depict the magnitude of Christ's love--the depth and width of it. Furious doesn't work outside of the context of love; we tend to translate the word as angry, but I see it as a super-powerful force; stronger, deeper, broader than our vocabulary can fully describe.”
 
With Brit piano pop and glistering guitars, the serene “Love Came Down” sings of the love that came down to rescue us. The song reminds one that life and our identity is only truly found in this love. “One Thing Remains” resounds softly that God's unfailing love never gives up nor runs out.  
 
The enthusiastic “Acquitted" declares God's goodness that has removed our trespasses and given us a new hope, and the danceable praise “You Are Good” engagingly contemplates the same truth. 
 
With a hauntingly beautiful piano and string arrangement, “Walk In His Promise” calls upon complete dependence and trust in our Lord. The effulgent “One Thirst and Hunger” excavates the heart of the worshiper seeking God's face with intensity. “Glory to the Lamb” points out that our worship is offering complete surrender and the very best of ourselves.
 
Galvanized in soft pop texture, “The Lord is My Shepherd” echoes the 23rd Psalm, restoring and ministering to the soul. The tranquilizing “Here” allows one to meditate upon God's kingdom being here on Earth as we fall deeper and deeper in love with our King. In placid folk and gentle electric piano, “Always” evokes a magnificent obsession with Him.
 
Closing Thoughts:
Jeremy Riddle skillfully strides into a new direction. “This record is different because I wasn't intentionally seeking out songs for specific needs or situations," he said. "Worship songwriters should always ask if the content of their songs is really the word offering of our heart or simply a well-crafted lyric. I continuously tried to direct my focus onto delivering authentic expressions of my heart over something catchy and quotable.” 
 
The album is not just a listen-through, but an actual invite to worship and mediate upon God's massive love. Throughout the album one can not but contemplate and be awed by this never-ending, furious love. 
  
It's important to note that more than a third of the songs have appeared in the Bethel Live Be Lifted High album, but in a new studio recording format.

WOW | Posted September 15, 2011
Jeremy Riddle has long been one of my favorite singers. His voice range is off the hook.This new CD really shows this off.I love praise and worship music. To me there is nothing better.Every song on this CD is an excellent P&W song.I really liked "Love Come Down" and "One Thing Remains".
I encourage all NRT members to give a listen to this CD.If you are not a big fan of Jeremy Riddle, you just might be after hearing this excellent CD.

Just listened through the album and i can definatly say it is one i will be buying in the near future, very well recorded and mixed and the song writing is beautiful, even the covers are brilliantly done, putting a slightly new sound to them.

One of the Best Worship Albums of the year | Posted September 13, 2011
Jeremy Riddle has always brought his A game when it comes to his albums. There are always a HUGE amount of songs that are just GOOD. No question about it. The passion and conviction that he sings with is just ridiculous (in a good way). The album opens with "Fall Afresh" which is totally good because it's like a prequel to "Furious"- it's absolutely amazing. Those two songs are made for a set list. 

I would have given this a higher score but the majority of the songs are not new songs but reworked from Bethel's stellar worship album, Be Lifted High. The tracks Furious, One Thing Remains, Love Came down (although I love Riddle's version more), You Are Good. 

Love "The Lord is my shepherd" so many times that beautiful psalms is reduced to cliches and bad music. Riddle elevates it. 

On a vocal standpoint: I'm always partial to a guy who's not afraid to use his falsetto...jeremy riddle goes for the high notes and pulls them off. 

Some good songs which more of them would have been NEW NEW. you know what i'm saying.

Loved it | Posted September 13, 2011
I loved the new album by Jeremy Riddle. His music is full of his emotion which is what i enjoy most about it. I really liked Sweetly broken and this whole album rings with similar emotion. I will be buying this album on the 20th.

Furiously Awesome! | Posted September 13, 2011
I love this new album! I have loved Jeremy Riddle's songs since I first heard his song Sweetly Broken. The first song on Jeremy's new project, Fall Afresh, just brings me into a sweet place of worship! The song Furious captures God's love so well! It reminds me of the movie Furious Love, and just how God's love is really what this life is all about. Jeremy also has some upbeat songs in his mix of songs, such as Love Come Down and One Thing Remains. I highly recommend this album and artist!

Furious- perfect for whatever mood you're in. | Posted September 13, 2011
Heard Jeremy Riddle on a mainstream christian radio station a few years ago and loved his gritty, edgy style.  His voice is enough to get you hooked, but then you listen deeper and his lyrics are what makes this album stand out.  I personally love an album that can mix easy listening with worship.  There are times for worship, there are times to just listen and enjoy music.  For me, it's when an artist can mix the two together that I'm hooked!

This cd is better than all the others before it! I love Jeremy Riddle's music! It's amazing that all he writes is worship. His musical talent has grown very muchly. His new cd is a mixture of everything that I like, and that's hard to do.
