The annual Pas­sion Con­fer­ence is aimed at high school/​university stu­dents and its annual album presents a yearly snap­shot of pop­u­lar and new praise and wor­ship songs, with “Even So Come” ful­fill­ing that very pur­pose.

Open­ing with the title track by Chris Tom­lin, “Even So Come” is a typ­i­cal arena anthem wor­ship song, but has a cho­rus hook with sur­pris­ing the­o­log­i­cal depth. Mul­ti­ple song­writ­ers includ­ing Matt Red­man lend their style, with David Crow­der tak­ing the most musi­cal license — uti­liz­ing lazy hip hop grooves and shuf­fling blues to great effect in “Lift Your Head Weary Sin­ner”.

If you’re look­ing for a taste test of 2015’s upcom­ing hits, this is a great record to check out.
