Hello Love
Posted September 12, 2008
By WorshipLeaderMag,


Chris Tomlin is the poet laureate of worship music in the first decade of this century. Bold? Over-hyperbolizing? Not really. With five songs currently in the top 25 used by the American church, it's undeniable. One reason is that his music is completely straightforward. No strange turns into musical experimentalism or adventurous melodic strains. This is what works for congregational offerings today, and Hello Love is Tomlin's best effort, yet.

With Ed Cash's attention to production detail and Tomlin's clear emotional binding to the offering of his songs, worship leaders and radio stations both have something to celebrate. On a nobler plane, as far as worshipers go, there are at least four tunes that hearing them feels like you are hearing a song already etched on your heart. Tomlin calls us all to join him in lifting "the name of Jesus" in the major-chord, kick-beat driven, hip-pocket, instant emotion rouser "Sing, Sing, Sing." Then there are the others you already know, "Jesus Messiah," the radio single that is likely already on your set list, and "God of This City," you likely heard this one on the most recent Passion release by the same name. This powerful anthem was written by the techno-worship outfit Bluetree for the city of Belfast in Northern Ireland, and Tomlin will now bring it to the attention of people around the world, undoubtedly helping it become the cry of thousands of churches for its anointing and proclamation God's redeeming power.

Since his Arriving Tomlin has continued to push his music beyond the realms of just Christian easy listening and into smoldering cries of exaltation that speak to communities around the world. He is emotionally glued to the meaning of his music, and Hello Love proves that he will continue to bless God's people for years to come.
