Soft Spoken Worship
Posted December 01, 2014
By SarahFine_NRT, Staff Reviewer


Worship minister Hunter Thompson, part of the intensely powerful ministry that is continually changing lives over at Bethel Church in Redding, California, is making a splash with the debut of his new EP titled Swan Song.

Going into this EP, bells and whistles are the last thing you'll find. This is as stripped down and intimate as it gets. However, with the glory-provoked opening found on "Song Of David," you'll discover that there is a soft spoken intensity on this EP that might take a few listens to fully comprehend.

"Maranantha" boasts some acoustic vibes while still keeping Christ the focus of every melody. "To Love You Rightly" almost sounds like a childlike lullaby with the inclusion of some whimsical whistles and harmonious strings: "Above all that these hands complete, let Your love always be / be the prize my heart will seek, beyond the day I die."

"Swan Song" is the darkest offering here, yet still offers such a proudly splendid hope within the midst of deeply formal lyrics: "If these words would be the last words I speak / I would know that these came from the depth of me."

Closing Thoughts:
Fans of Bethel's prophetic and personal style of worship will not want to miss this EP by Hunter Thompson. It captures all the splendor of the King, while remaining a phenomenal piece of art in its own soul-soothing right.
