Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

Artist: Hillsong Live
Album: A Beautiful Exchange
Release Date: 6/29/10
Label: Hillsong/EMI CMG

Hillsong may just be the biggest name in worship music. With their hit songs being sung in songs across the country, such as "Mighty To Save," it's not hard to tell why this is. One of the main reasons is that they put everything they have into praising God. In fact, Hillsong Live's new album A Beautiful Exchange was actually a live worship session that they just hit record and took it from there. No studio, but a church full of some of the best worship leaders/songwriters out there and a crowd whose intentions were to praise their Creator with all their hearts. That's what it's all about.

A few tracks on A Beautiful Exchange stand out, being "Forever Reign" and "You." The live version, as well as the recorded radio version of "Forever Reign" are both done and written nicely. The recorded single version has a bit more of an edge to it, but the live setting does add many more worshipers' voices. The other highlight, "You," is a high energy song that has a pop rock feeling to it. The whole album does have a nice worship setting to it and is sure to be a satisfying listen for fans of Hillsong.

Rating: 7/10 Hillsong Live are back yet again with their newest worship album, A Beautiful Exchange. Containing many songs that are soon to be heard in churches all over, the album fulfills it's main purpose, which is of course to praise and worship Jesus Christ. It does have a typical Hillsong feel to it and there is nothing completely new here, but does have some well written worship tracks to accompany it.
