​Keeping Constant Focus
Posted August 12, 2016

Andrew Marcus is seeking to draw your attention to the Creator with an uplifting new worship release. Padded a bit by live renditions of some of the songs at the end, there are 7 original offerings here that make effective use of modern trends in contemporary worship. Some guest appearances by worship mainstays Paul Baloche and Leeland also give some appreciated flavor to the tracklist. 

Leeland's appearance on the title track makes the song feel like one of his and creates an instant album highlight. "We Are Redeemed" and "Glory to His Name" add to the accessible and engaging worship offered. All of the songs touch on some really interesting musical moments and grasp at some definite potential to transform the songs into classics. What holds them back a bit is a little over-reliance on worship music standards, both lyrically and musically, that keeps things a bit too rooted in the standard sounds expected of the genre. 

But there are moments where you can really see a bright future for Mr. Marcus. Be it a musical hook such as on "We Live" or some powerful vocal deliveries in the early tracks, Andrew Marcus has demonstrated ability worth keeping an eye on.

The Bottom Line: Fans of the modern worship music scene will find new songs for Sunday morning, though a familiar approach limits the overall memorable quality of the project.
