Better Left Said
Posted August 24, 2009
Jason Grayís latest project, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue, is an album of disarming poignancy and ubiquitous vulnerability. Its 13 songs reveal the longings and struggles of one who is trying to live up to godly ideals. That being said, it is an album brimming with hope, joy and honesty.
A sense of self-deprecating empathy accompanied by genuine transparency permeates the songs of Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue. Gray plays to his strength as a songwriter, creating songs with an ability to establish meaningful rapport with listeners. Gray wears his beating heart on his rolled-up sleeve. In truth, every track of Everything Sad Is Coming UntrueĎs acts as a window in that house of glass where stones arenít meant to be thrown.
Fans of those artists who tend to be more nuanced, blurring the line between modern pop & worship, (i.e. Paul Alan, Brandon Heath, Matt Kearny, Jadon Lavik, Jeremy Riddle, Waterdeep, and Matthew West) should find Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue to their liking. The album drops September 1st from Centricity Music.
