2014 Year in Review and Looking Ahead!

Some good suggestions here, but, I’d like to add my own…

Best of 2014:
3. U2 – SONGS OF INNOCENCE – The purest release from U2 in some time. I’m looking forward to the other two releases that will make up the rest of this trilogy of albums from one of the best bands to ever grace the face of the planet.

2. Vekora – VEKORA – An unapologetic, slithering swim through moody layers of Kurt Schmidt distortion, graced by the haunting vocals of Alexandra Wendt, and bound together by the unparalleled rhythms of Poor Old Lu drummer Jesse Sprinkle. Produced by Terry Taylor and engineered by Derri Daugherty of The Choir. It’s an amazing breath of fresh air that I’ve found provides the perfect soundtrack for long runs outside on overcast, cold January days.

1. Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil – GOLIATH – An album birthed out of nowhere by a band comprised of legends assembled in a manner nobody could’ve expected. Abegg’s guitar and Taylor’s screams blast the solid back beat of Painter and Furler  into another realm where the vast majority of faith-related tunes fear to tread.

What I’m looking forward to the most in 2015: Without a doubt, BROKEN TEMPLES from Kevin Max. His voice is unparalleled and his creative perspective is a beacon to the crowd on the edge, searching for something with a bit more texture and depth. Songs already revealed like “Infinite,” “Light Me Up,” and “Clear,” serve as an indication that this new album by the former dcTalk and Audio Adrenaline front man is going to be amazing.

Gabriel Jones 

Albums of the year

Switchfoot – Fading West 

Does Switchfoot ever disappoint? This album was released alongside a really good documentary (that you can check out on Netflix). Each Switchfoot release has presented songs that challenge the listener to think and examine themselves. This release is no different.

Steve Taylor & the Perfect Foil – Goliath

Steve Taylor’s first release since 1994 picked up right where he left off. This time he brings a fun ensemble full of quirky lyrics and a fresh sound. Taylor has never been one to water down his lyrics that address topics that are often taboo. There are rumors that there will be multiple records from this…
