Joining the Pasleys this time are several independent artists, including two members of the indie band Calling Cedar and Will Hunt, the percussionist and producer who masterminded the incredible Apt?Core project last year. The first Enter the Worship Circle featured a lot of interesting percussion instruments from around the world, and Second Circle follows suit. In the liner notes and press kits, much attention is called to the Pasleys recent mission trips to India, and the incorporation of Indian musical influences on this album's sound. If world music deters your enjoyment, fear not ? most of the Indian influence resides in the percussion and not in the song structure.
It's remarkable how these musicians adapt the Psalms into personalized expressions of praise, utilizing modern language and music. They successfully make the ancient words of the psalmists their own, demonstrating a genuine hunger to know God better that's more evident here than on the typical praise-and-worship album.
