Cantelon Offers A Colorful Worship Release | Posted May 30, 2012
Ben Cantelon may not be a name that CCM fans will instantly recognize, but his music carries a familiar feel that should make listeners feel right at home with other genre mainstays. With catchy choruses, upbeat melodies, and honest (if fairly typical) lyrics, Cantelon's Everything In Color should have no problem catching on. 
 
The album opens with the title track and its radio-friendly nature instantly makes the song--and as a result the album--likable. In the song, Cantelon sings of how Christ's love colors our lives: "My life is colored by Your love, full of patience, full of kindness enough, the sorrows of my yesterday, are forgotten with joyful sounds of praise." 
 
"New Day" follows with a similar theme of Christ's love bringing on a new day in our lives: "It's a new day, it's a new life, it's a new start for every heart that's found you, Jesus we found you." 
 
"Guardian" and the resurrection-themed "Saviour of the World" follow and continue the trend of upbeat worshipful choruses. None of it really breaks any new ground but it feels like it does what it intends too well enough, so it doesn't have to.
 
"My Deliverer" and "Be Exalted" take a slower approach to worship that ends up feeling a little bit more like "worship music" than the "contemporary music with worshipful lyrics" that dominated the first four tracks. The songs are good and uplifting enough, although the lyrics play it even safer than the initial tracks as far as worship goes.
 
"Love Came Down" and "Through The Cross" offer highlight moments on the latter half of the album, keeping the upbeat pop moments continuing. The album concludes on a softer note with "Love Divine." The album never ceases in its solid melodies and delivery. The lyrics rarely go beyond the fairly straightforward worship, but the music and melodies keep things enjoyable from start to finish. There's a lot to like here. Cantelon has crafted a worship release that does everything it's supposed to do.
 
Closing Thoughts: 
Ben Cantelon's sound may not be totally earth-shattering and his lyrics often draw on several commonly used worshipful phrases, but all the while, his obvious earnestness to spread God's word carries over in each note. It's hard to find anything to criticize in such an honest delivery. Everything In Color is probably not going to change the face of CCM music, but it's an enjoyable worship record. And that's more than enough.
