Awaken [edit]
by Christopher and Jennifer Hopper | Genre: Praise & Worship | Release Date: August 05, 2016
 

After a six-year hiatus from recording, Christopher and Jennifer Hopper are back with the avant-guard worship album we’ve been waiting for. From full-scale arena anthems to ambient-laden invocations, Awaken is a theological journey that explores the kingship of Jesus in the life of the Christian. With guitar tones tipping their hats to Ryan Adams, and the soaring vocals and chaotic drum parts of The 1975, this record is often bombastic, complex, and then reflectively tranquil.

​Congregational Rock-And-Worship | Posted August 22, 2016
Christopher and Jennifer Hopper have been creating music and touring for over a decade, leading worship in North America, Latin America and Europe. They are beloved at festivals for their congregational worship style. This month, the Hoppers are back with their first album in six years, Awaken

As world-trekking performers, parents, producers and bloggers, the Hoppers are still highly meticulous in their songwriting, carefully crafting each song for theological soundness and sincerity. As they wrote each track on Awaken, they "tested the waters" by playing every new song in worship at their church. The end result of the care they bestowed is a well-developed album with strongly theological lyrics and a rock-and-roll feel reminiscent of classic rock.

Each song on Awaken flows into the following one seamlessly, making it fantastic to worship along to or great as background listening material. The track which easily stands out the most is the Hoppers' personal favorite, "Let The Church Arise," which also got its own music video.

The Bottom Line: The Hoppers have wonderfully compensated for their six-year break with their new album Awaken, out now. Although not really set apart from other recent worship releases, their meticulous songwriting style results in flawless, easy-to-follow, congregational worship songs enjoyable for every generation.
