A Passionate And Soild Worship Album| Posted August 23, 2010
Hard to believe it has been nearly eight years since Jeremy Camp?s released his first worship project ?Carried Me? in 2004, the follow-up to his powerhouse debut ?Stay?. Much has happened since then, three successful studio albums, two live LP?s, and a Grammy nomination. You?d think with that kind of momentum, the sure thing to do would be to stick to ?what?s working? --but Jeremy Camp has never been the one to follow the patterns of what?s expected from a musician. ?We Cry Out: The Worship Project? has been an album in the making for nearly two years, and it has been well worth the wait.
Jeremy has grown much since ?Carried Me?, spiritually but musically as well, this album being far more organic and live sounding than the aforementioned. Out of the 12 tracks on the album, Jeremy only penned a handful of them, wanting to cover songs God has been using to speak to him, saying of the record, ?I feel like I?ve had a growth spurt the past two years in my walk with the Lord, and I think this album reflects that deepening. There?s a purity behind this record that I can?t even describe. I didn?t write most of it, so I can?t take the credit. And I love that.?
The album starts off with the first single ?Jesus Saves?, and seamlessly leads right into ?Not Ashamed?, co-written by worship leader Jon Egan. ?The Way? is by far my favorite track on the entire album, a powerful song that boasts beautiful string sections and showcases Jeremy?s strong vocals. Hillsong classic ?Mighty To Save? appears on the album, followed next by the title track, We Cry Out?. ?You Are The Lord? is a beautifully moving worship anthem that I do hope he and the band incorporate into their live show in the future.
Other covers on the album include a faster up-tempo version of Chris Tomlin?s ?Everlasting God?(originaly penned by Benton Brown) and a very powerful rendition of Desperation Band?s ?Overcome?, featuring a 30 person studio choir and guest vocalist, Jeremy?s wife Adie Camp. Matt Redman?s ?You Never Let Go? (which he and his band have been performing live for the last several years) is sure to lead the listener into a place of true surrender. The album comes to a close with two songs penned by Jeremy, the lyrically powerful ?Unrestrained? (?So take this selfish heart of mine / I want to give it all / And melt away everything that?s not of You?), and praise declaration ?King Jesus?.
From a music standpoint, I can say that ?We Cry Out? has taken the musicianship of Jeremy Camp and his band to the next level. If anything, it is just an exciting taste of what we can expect off the next studio album. But beyond any of that, this is a solid worship album from a seasoned worship leader. It?s sure to please not only longtime Camp fans, but also anyone looking to truly worship God with everything they?ve got. And while many are going to call this album out for it?s lack of new material, self-penned or not, I HIGHLY recommend it.
In the end, it?s not about ?a song? or how popular it is, it?s about worshiping God. I would rather listen to an album with covers sung 1000 times than something without a pure heart of unhindered worship behind it. All it will take you is one listen to realize, ?We Cry Out? has that heart --and a lot of it.
Really Good Worship Effort!| Posted August 15, 2010
I just got the new album today when I saw Jeremy Camp play after the Rockies up in Denver at Coors Field were they had the album available a week before it is set to release. I was very excited to pick it up and have been listening to it the rest of the day after the concert. I've fallen in love with the album.
Jeremy Camp was the first christian artist I ever got into and also who fueled my love for music. So I have been a fan of his music since my middle school years through my high school years to this point. Now my tastes are mostly all rock and metal but Jeremy Camp is one of the few exceptions because he has an outstanding voice, honest and heartfelt lyrics, and doing what God has called him to do. Which is showed through this album as he tackles his 2nd worship album.
There is much to love about this release. It features numerous covers and some of Jeremy's own original worship songs. WIth the covers and original material being spilt with 5 covers and 6 originals. I think the covers are done especially well and I easily enjoy Jeremy's versions more than any of the original artists recordings. Jeremy brings new life into these songs with the passion displayed and his powerful voice.Mighty to Save or Overcome is my favorite cover song off the album, but all are pulled off very well and enjoyable.
The original songs on here are just as strong as the covers and are some great new worship songs. Jeremy puts some very heartfelt worship lyrics and pours out his heart in these songs, and flow greatly with the 5 cover songs showing his great heart for worship. Not Ashamed has to be new favorite worship song, having a great declaration of who we should be as christians and is just an awesome song.
Now the only small complaint is that this sounds close enough to other bands out there and nothing too new is presented. But this is an extremely well done worship albums and one of the strongest in the genre. Strong vocals paired with great songs and strong worshipful lyrics, what more can you ask for? That's what worship music is all about. Jeremy had a great selection of cover songs that go in greatly with his originals.
You will be swept away by this worshipful albums that the 50 minutes almost goes by too quick.This is a very strong release and fits in nicely with the rest of Jeremy's strong catalog of albums. If you want a really great album to worship God with this is the one to pick up, you won't regret it.
Jeremy's Faith + Great Music = We Cry Out| Posted February 18, 2013
This is one of the few albums that i can listen to over and over and over again! My first experience with We Cry Out was with the song The Way. This single was so impacting and has an epic beat and no to mention the music video. Just awesome! I later purchased the entire album and instantly feel in love with it! Especially Not Ashamed and Overcome (all 8 minutes of it) Thanks again Jeremy for bring music and faith together in a perfectly wonderful way
AMAZING!| Posted February 15, 2013
Jeremy Camp has always delievered some solid stuff. "We Cry Out" is no exception. Jeremy has realeasd his second worship album and it has blown my mind. "Not Ashamed is my favourite song off the album as it really speaks to me and encourages me not to be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. "Overcome" is another solid track that, even at 8 min, has me listening to it all the time. It has the power to bring people to there knees and have people realize the depth of Christ's lvoe for us.
WE Cry Out| Posted August 28, 2010
I got to see Jeremy Camp this past spring for the first time live and though I was already a fan I now was hooked on the live show and what Jeremys' mission was all about. When I heard this cd was coming out I was excited to say the least. From the opening cord of his original Jesus Saves I was hooked. Not only is it catchy but by the 2nd chorus I found myself singing along. Now the other 11 songs are remakes but Jeremy has put his spin on them and his heart and soul into each one. Like Mighty to save I know worship leaders will be adding this to their song lists. The same with You never let go and Everlasting God. The song We cry out and Overcome are just amazing and I found myself getting lost into the music and praise for God. Thats a good thing a very good thing when an artist can do that! So if you Love worship music that kicks..then this cd is for you. If you like Jeremy Camp you're gonna love this cd.

Initially I was caught off guard by this CD because it seemed like that it was just a cover album- but upon further investigation I learned that some of the songs that I THOUGHT were covers were original songs (Unrestrained) and were quite good.
I'm not a fan of artists just doing covers of songs as half their album- he does them well- it's just so does anybody else that can play a guitar.
