Chris Tomlin’s latest project “Hello Love” is another anthem rousing worship inspiring project from a well known name. The production is very tasty, with the expected typical thumping Tomlin-style anthems such as “Sing Sing Sing” and “God of This City” which I think is the stand out tune on this project. And, there is more. “God Almighty” and “I Will Rise” where simple turns into soaring orchestration.
The songs are strong, but I sense I move to address the broadening
audience Chris Tomlin has acquired. His music is on the top CCLI
charts and is as mainstream in church music today as hymns. My only
complaint is that the production does not capture as well the energy
that Tomlin exudes in live recordings and settings. And, this
production is huge.
The layering might make some wonder if they could pull off these in
their churches. Regardless, the accessibility to worship leaders is
still there. In fact, as a piano playing worship leader, the trend in bringing that instrument back in a modern way is present in this recording. So,
that might make some of my worship leading readers happy.
In summary, I recommend this CD to my worshiping community. I give it 4 stars out of 5!
