Thumbs UP/DOWN: Live from Passion 07, Pt. 1

So your very first day of This Day in Music wouldn’t be complete without an actual music review! Without further adieu:

Passion dropped their first installment of 3 releases from the Passion 07 event today with 2 songs and a message from Francis Chan.

Thumbs down1. Friend of GodChris Tomlin and Israel Houghton (I think it’s Israel.) Eh, you know Chris has had me jumping the fence lately. I mean you can’t discredit the guy for writing such amazing choruses that somehow are instantaneously familiar and easy to sing along with. This song though is not that. I believe it must be an Israel Houghton song. It’s definitely a change from the typical Passion style. But I don’t think that’s a good thing. The verses are difficult to sing for a congregation and the choruses and bridge are very repetitive. Not for me.

Thumbs up2 . You are GodCharlie Hall. Oh this is what I LOVE about Charlie. It’ll never get to the top of the charts but I really, REALLY dig this tune. Funky beat, interesting melody line, great guitar riffs (maybe a Stulce amp?!?!), and in that ‘prophetic’ lyrical style of writing that I love so much about him. At 7 and 1/2 minutes, it’s long but it’s also live. I LOVE it! Great break down and he really surprises me there at the end! AND one you can do Sunday morning!

It wraps up with Francis Chan, who is incredible. An amazing speaker and I can’t wait to listen to his message all the way through! A good first release I suppose. It’s going for $3.50 which if you’re wanting the message, I think is an appropriate price.  It definitely has me chomping at the bit for the next release especially since it’s got to have a lil Crowder on it 🙂
