Aaron Gillespie’s follow up to 2011’s “Anthem Song” was recorded while he was on the road as touring drummer for Paramore. Gillespie’s trademark soaring vocals and powerful delivery hallmark a strong and refreshing contemporary worship album that builds on Gillespie’s momentum as an excellent songwriter.
The album is fairly acoustic driven, though it’s thickly produced and many songs have a sense of layering and depth. Gillespie injects snippets of other well-known worship songs occasionally, which gives his own verses and choruses extra weight without feeling overbearing or lazy.
This is a n uncomplicated record, driven by simple rhythms and infectiously catchy melodies. It’s a great listen and worth checking out.
