What You Need To Know
New Mexico-based worship collective from Calvary Chapel Albuquerque release their project, Breakthrough

What It Sounds Like
What's most striking about Breakthrough is the lyrics: they really are simply stories of believers walking through life with God and singing about their faith together, and that's what makes the album so powerful and such a pure expression of worship. ("What Are We Afraid Of", "Grace After Grace") The arrangements and instrumentation on Breakthrough do an excellent job of supporting and elevating the lyrics so that they stand out and draw the listener in. ("Breakthrough," "Just A Glimpse")

Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights
Battledrums describes part of their mission as inspiring the church to sing anthems that will help us live victorious lives, and "Emmanuel" is a song that perfectly captures that. The lyrics passionately proclaim that God is with us and that we are victorious in Him.

Best Song On The Record
"Edge of Heaven" wins for best song. It has an anthemic, drum-heavy bridge that connects with many when listening to the worship genre. More than that, however, it describes a longing for God's presence that is raw and sincere.
 
For Fans Of
Here Be Lions, Elias Dummer, Freedom Movement

Final Word
There's something powerful about worship songs that are born out of a local community of believers living life and pursuing Jesus together, and Breakthrough will draw you into the preciousness of that experience.
