Music Review: This Is Your Kingdom Come Now

The 3 primary artists on this album are Casey Corum, Torri Baker and Crispin Schroeder. As I've mentioned before on this blog, the main thing I look for when reviewing worship music is that it maintains its worship quality.   I've found that some Christian music artists, while trying to make Christian music more popular, become too focused on making it sound like secular music and in the process, it's easy to forget that it is supposed to be aiding in worship and that purpose is then lost.

With that in mind, Mr. Corum has done an excellent job of maintaining that worship quality.  And Ms. Baker has a beautiful, crystal-like voice.  They team up on the very stirring "Love has Rescued Me" to remind us that Jesus died for us.
"How I Love Your Ways" is my favorite song on the album; a song of redemption and salvation in the Lord. "Who is Like Our God" was my  least favorite (too much secular, not enough worship).  "Peace Mix3" was especially enjoyable and relaxing,  reflecting the peace we find in the Lord.

One thing that bothered me  is that most of the songs began with the same  clicking of drumsticks, and that got very tiresome.
Overall, a very good album.  I especially enjoyed Mr. Corum's songs.  I've included below  a preview of "Love Has Rescued Me"
