The Whole Landscape EP: Jared Anderson



What You Need to Know:



The path for new Centricity music artist, Jared Anderson, is anything but typical. He lives with his wife and six children in Colorado, where he ventures outside to check the chicken eggs every day and makes breakfast for his family. His first instrument is piano, not guitar, and he's drawn more to songs that make you feel something in your soul over those that try to explain something to you. And Anderson, who is now a worship leader and Christian music artist, isn't afraid to confess this proclamation from his past, "I promised myself that the two jobs I would never hold in life would be Worship Leader and Christian Music Artist."


 

What You Need to Know:



Jared offers beautiful vocals on every track. He consistently brings awesome lyrics to this album during the asthounshing 5 songs. He masterfully plays the piano in the song "The Whole Landscape"  which is the title track to this EP. From there, Jared brings a modern worship vibe just like bands Passion and Elevation Worship in the song "Heaven Stands Up."  The next song, "Work of Art", showcases a slow ballad where Jared uses an amazing vocals. The song "Kindness" is a great song in the modern christian music world. It brings a great song that lives up to a christian music standard with amazing lyrics and great instrumentals to help complete it. The last song "Irresistible" ends this spectacular 5 song EP with a Phil Wickman sounding to its song. Overall, this EP is a fantastic EP to listen to from start to bottom.


 

Spiritual Highlights:



Every song has its very only spiritual highlight but the one that stood out to me was the song "Work of Art". The bridge of the song, "You're beautiful, You’re beautiful, Creating me, redeeming me, You’ll finish everything, That You’ve begun" stood out to me. This inspires us to show that God is beautiful and he created us in his image; redeemed us and that he will help finish what we were made for.


 

Best Song on Album:



While every song on this album offers something different, it's hard to pick out the best song on the album. If I was to choose one of the songs, it would be "The Whole Landscape". This song stood out due to the beautiful vocals and the piano melody it brings. If you are looking for a song to add to your slow and easy listening playlist, this song would be a perfect one to add. Jared does a great job capturing emotions in this song with his angelic vocals. You will want to keep playing this song on repeat.


 

For the Fans of:



Phil Wickman, Jeremy Riddle, Kirsten Stanfill


 

Final Word:



The Whole Landscape is an EP that you will keep playing on your daily rotation. This album helps capture your emotion and offers a nice presence of God while listening to it. Jared Anderson really knows how to get you to worship our God with his songs. If you want to feel inspired like I was, give this album a listen.

Supernatural EP | Posted October-03-2019

What You Need to Know

Paradise Now is a pop-rock group from Bridgend, Wales. Comprised of brothers Sam Taylor, Ben Taylor, and their longtime friend Nathan Beaton, Paradise Now is a trio of innovators. Years of sonic exploration and a shared passion for hybrid music lead to songwriting that crossed boundaries and built new genres–genres that continue to ripen and evolve with each song they write. The band wrestles together their adoration for both pop and rock by means of individual preferences and joint experiences.



What It Sounds Like

Supernatural EP by Paradise Now is a hard rocking, 6 song EP that reminds me of a younger version of Disciple. "Baptist" is a rock-solid song, while "WildOnesis a hard-hitting bop, and 'Machine" is a thrasher. Paradise Now offers a huge wave of much-needed rock in our modern pop and contemporary world. 



Spiritual Highlights

Paradise Now thrives on bringing hope to loneliness in their music. The EP offers a journey of self-discovery and perspective, reminding you not what people want you to do but what you were created to do. The song "WildOnesrecites the following line, “Watch it grow and it’s glowing in front of you.” This line shows that God’s love is growing for us as the bible says in 2 Thessalonians 1:3: We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater." This song will reach out for you if you are struggling with self growth and will help you overcome it.



Best Song on the Record

From top to bottom, this EP is a must listen to. It is very hard to pick just one song to choose for the best on the record but if it had to be one, it would have to be the title track of the album, "Supernatural.
The song makes you want to get up and move and is definitely a headbanger that will satisfy all rock fans!



For Fans Of

Disciple, Thousand Foot Krutch, RED



Final Word

This 6 song EP will make you want to hit repeat for days to come. It’s a hard-hitting collection of songs that will help you overcome any of your challenges.

His clean-cut image is juxtaposed against a rap dexterity that rivals many in the genre. There are numerous artists throughout various genres, but some of them use their heart and God-given talent for a greater purpose. With such a mindset, P. Lo Jetson uses his gifts to celebrate the good news of Jesus Christ.



What It Sounds Like

P. Lo delivers a unique style to his raps. Songs are stories, and the only thing that makes the difference between a good story and an unremarkable one is the inner meaning. That is how P. Lo makes his music. He delivers stories with a positive and Godly message.



Spiritual Highlights

Every song is a spiritual highlight in its very own way but the one that stuck out to me was the song "Jetson Juice." P. Lo raps, "But Christ set me free now oh taste and see that this life is sweeter than a mango, Yeah boy we have hard times, Hard times don't have us, Hear satan talking like he really bout it; them empty threats don't gas up, Tell the boy simmer down now, I'm a child of the King though."  This makes you realize that God is above Satan and he loves you no matter what. It speaks to the fact that God's way is more powerful than you can imagine.

Final Word

If you're looking for a short rap album or EP to listen to, check this one out. You will fall in love with this album instantly and it'll get you hyped for more. I found this quickly on repeat.
