What You Need to Know:
The release of Wild marks the 5th full album released by Bethel this year. It was recorded live at Bethel Church in Redding, CA, where Sean Feucht relocated after officially joining the Bethel Music artist collective in 2016. While Sean has recorded, produced, and released 20 albums to date, Wild is his first album published under Bethel Music.
What It Sounds Like:
Wild is an album that is devoted wholly to worship. Upbeat songs like "Till the Whole Earth Looks Like Heaven" and "Wild One" have a drive that get you engaged in the song without overpowering the message, while songs like "Still Will I Love," "There Is A Name," and "Spirit and Truth" have the hallmark Bethel sound that brings you straight to a heart of worship. No matter the music behind him, Sean's passionate worship is what makes this album stand out.
Considering this an album that's packed with worship, it's difficult to pick out highlights. I was amazed by how few words Sean used in his lyrics, yet the songs are still impactful. The chorus for "Still Will I Love" is simply, "Still will I love, Still will I love, Still will I love you more." The song "Forever We Worship" is only 13 lines, yet you get lost in a time of worship.
Best Song on the Record:
"Wild One" wins it for me on this album. The groove of the song grabs you from the start, and the melodies give the song a drive that keeps you excited till the end. Also, it's a reminder that while our God is a god of mercy and peace, there is a wildness in Him that will never be tamed.
For Fans Of:
Bethel Music, Steffany Gretzinger, Cory Asbury
Sean's passion for worship is very evident in this album, and it's contageous. Wild is an album that will get you lost in worship by the second track.
Buy Wild on Apple Music or stream in on Spotify.
