The newest release of Mat Kearney's, "Young Love", is by far my FAVORITE record out of all his previous work. Though Mat is probably most well known for "Nothing Left to Lose", this album is highly underrated. From catchy, fun songs like "Hey Mama", and "Young Dumb and In Love", or more serious songs, like "Rochester", this album is perfectly well rounded. The song Rochester sounded like it came right from Mat's heart.. and that's an amazing thing to write like that. And of course, my favorite track on the album, is "Ships in the Night". It was actually the first song I had heard off this album, when I heard it on RadioU. Such an amazing song!
I've listened to this album numerous times, and still not one bit sick of it. Those are the best kinds of albums. :) Go pick this one up, if you haven't yet! Totally worth it!

The first ever worship album by the newsboys, and the 2nd full length album with new lead singer, Michael Tait, the newsboys have easily gotten into the groove of their new feel (since former lead singer, Peter Furler, left the band). I, personally, LOVE this album. From older, more well known worship songs, to some new classics. My personaly favorite tracks are, "Mighty to Save", "Revelation Song" and "God's Not Dead (Like a Lion)". Truth be told, the highlight of this whole album to me, was the mini dc Talk reunion, between Michael Tait, and guest, Kevin Max. I might have teared up a little. But that is illigitimate to this review.
Over all, this is a fantastic album. Weather you're a worship fan, or just contemporary fan, either will LOVE this album. Can't wait to see what the newsboys come up with next!

Alrighty, I'm just going to get right to it:
This is by far, the best album EVER. Like, ever ever. It's almost hard to describe in words.. Just the power and message in each individual song, is outstanding. Not only that, but each song flows together in such a diverse, yet still-the-same way, it just blows my mind. From Dark Horses to Thrive to Where I Belong, this album is just INCREDIBLE. But one of the things I love most about it, is that it is very Switchfoot. Just as a band, they always stay true to who they are at the end of the day, and this album is nothing short of that. Do I recommend this album? Psh, I'd give you all a copy if I could! Get this album - you will NOT be disappointed.
Oh, Legend of Chin. How I love thee. | Posted December-07-2011
In 1997, Switchfoot, formed a year earlier in 1996, released their first album, entitled "The Legend of Chin".
Okay, I'm just going to say it. This is probably one of the my favorite albums ever. Personally, I think it's one the most impressive debut albums I've ever heard. From "Concrete Girl" to "You", this album is just over-all awesome. Though this album was released 14 years ago, I feel it still very much represents Switchfoot as a band. If you heard it, you would definitely say, "Hey! That's Switchfoot!". So all in all, I do think this album FOR SURE worth hearing. Highly recommended!
Review | Posted August-21-2011
When Weekend Warrior Worship was a featured artist here on NRT, I decided I'd give them a listen. I enjoyed this album pretty much, over-all. My favorite track would probably be "I Worship You Alone". Really great song. All the songs have really great worship lyrics, but some of the beats I wasn't too crazy about. Great album, though. God bless! :) Keep up the great work.
This Is What I Believe! | Posted September-04-2011
I must say, I've been highly anticipating this album ever since Mr. Aaron Shust's 2009 release, Take Over. I knew this album was going to be good, but I wasn't sure if it would be as good as Take Over, since I loved it so much. But man, was I wrong! This is Aaron Shust's best work to date, by far. When I listen to each song, you can just hear the heart he sings them with. I know I've said this about Aaron Shust's other albums before, but, I honestly can't pick a favorite song. I tryed my best to decide, but each has such a wonderful message, and great beats, by the time I picked one, it was all of them. ;) Fantastic worship album. Best album I've heard all year, for sure. One of the best of 2011! Can't wait for the release of this album. Keep up the great work!
Whispered and Shouted. | Posted August-19-2011
The second studio release for worship artist Aaron Shust, named "Whispered and Shouted", is the follow up to the awesome, "Anything Worth Saying". But, this album definitely stands out on it's own. For me, personally, this album means alot. By far in my top 5 favorite albums. I love how each track has it's own individual message, but they all flow together beautifully. Sorta goes together with the theme, of "Whispered and Shouted". I honestly love every track on this album, but my favorite song would have to be "Watch Over Me". This song to me, just means alot. When I went through some things in my life, this song gave me great comfort the God is "Watching over me", no matter the time, place, or situation. I think this album makes a big statement in the Christian Music Industry, and Aaron Shust has definitely made his mark. Highly recommended album! :)
Aaron Shust EP. :) | Posted August-16-2011
This EP, is the first time Mr. Aaron Shust, had released Christimas songs. With 3 songs total, 2 classics, "Silent Night" and "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel", and a new song (A new favorite, in my books.) called "God has come to Earth", this is an over-all well rounded, enjoyable Christmas EP. The starting track is "God has come to Earth", is one of my new favorite Christmas songs. "O Come O Come Emmanuel" is also great, I love the background music/effects. Sounds really cool. And I love "Silnet Night", too. It just sounds like Aaron and a piano, which gives it a great acoutic-y feel. Over-all great EP - Highly recommended! :D
Review. :D | Posted August-16-2011
The debut album, by worship artist Aaron Shust, totally knocked me off my feet. By far, the best worship album I had heard to that point. Each and every song has a different message, but all flow together wonderfully. Though this is the time I usually say: "My favorite song on this album, is ____", I honestly couldn't bring myself to pick just one. All songs hold a different place in my heart. :) I honestly love them all. If you are a fan of Chris Tomlin, or any worship artist really, this album is just right for you. ;)
Beckah Shae Review. | Posted August-14-2011
This album, "Destiny", was the first album by Miss. Beckah Shae I had heard. Knowing what style of music she goes for, my expectations weren't too high (taking into account this isn't my favorite style of music). But, I really didn't mind this album too much. I liked "#putyourloveglasseson", and "Are You Ready". All very nice songs. Though some of the beats weren't my favorite, all the lyrics of the songs were great. Beckah can really sing. ;) If you like this style of music, you'll be sure to LOVE this album. Though this isn't my favorite album, it was a pleasant surprise.
