Album: The Saving One
Release Date: 2/23/10
Label: Sparrow Records
Sometimes music isn't always very obvious. You can be in for a surprise or something not so appealing. From the first track on The Saving One, you can tell that you are in for an album full of worship. Playing some alternative-styled worship, Starfield has a truly memorable album in their newest effort.
The Saving One starts off with its title track, which is a great worship tune, proclaiming that Jesus is The Saving One. One of my personal favorites off the album comes in "Rediscover You", which shows a more depressing side of Starfield. It talks about how many of us as Christians really seem to lose our faith in God and need to "rediscover" Him. Despite being the album's highlight, "Rediscover You" is also its first single.
"Declaration of Dependence" opens with some driving guitars, with a very powerful sound to it. The delicate piano-driven "Something to Say" is another song that seems to be on the depressing side, but is well written and very memorable as well. Another favorite of mine is "Top of Our Lungs", which is a completely new direction for Starfield, with its electronic-driven sound. "I Need A Father" closes out the album with a toned down tempo, but is still effective.
Rating: 7/10 The Saving One is a great effort from Starfield, with its alternative worship sounding bunch of songs. From the solid worship tune "The Saving One" to the electronic-driven "Top of Our Lungs", the album seems to contain a bit of everything. A new favorite worship album of mine for sure!
