An Album to Remember
Posted April 27, 2014
Since 2011's Neveroddoreven, we haven't heard much from R&B/hip hop artist Shonlock. After all these years, however, we are able to enjoy a new, energetic, and spiritual album. Here is my take.
1. A Night to Remember
Genres: Dance-pop, pop rock, electropop
Content: The lyrics of this energetic and synth-y opener are about leaping out in faith and remembering the night that Jesus Christ saved you.
Genres: R&B, trap, pop
Content: This song describes how we should surrender everything to God and stop running from Him in vain.
Genres: R&B, hip hop, glitch, dubstep, electropop, trap
Content: This bangy song is a futuristicly sounding take on the concept of becoming a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
4. Don't Play
Genres: Hip hop, electronic rock, hard rock, trap, grime
Content: This equally heavy hitting song is about taking one's faith seriously and staying focused and determined in it.
Genres: Pop, pop rock, R&B, power pop
Content: This powerful song tells of how hard God's grace hits when we need it the most.
6. We Walk On Water
Genres: Pop, house, electropop, dance-pop
Content: This song comforts a listener in the fact that God loves us and we should never let Him go.
Genres: R&B, trap, hip hop, grime, electrohop
Content: This song is an anthemic call to unite believers to keep the faith alive through future generations.
8. I Like To Win
Genres: R&B, alternative hip hop
Content: This uptempo song, similar sounding to Can't Hold Us by Macklemore, is about having victories in life since Jesus won the ultimate victory.
9. Beyond This World
Genres: R&B, electropop, pop rock
Content: This song restates the "in the world, but not of the world" statement in a way that calls us to reach out to all kinds of people.
10. My Choice is You
Genres: R&B, pop, folk, electropop
Content: This song is about lovingly worshipping God and lovingly comforting loved ones who are going through hard times.
Others may disagree, but I think this album is better than Neveroddoreven. With a more diversified sound and more messages, Shonlock delivers another strong album in A Night To Remember.
