The Joint Goes Official!

BIG NEWS PEOPLE!

In March of this year 2 of some incredible blogging buddies of mine and I kicked off a fun project called the Joint, where we reviewed music in a ‘multi-personality’ format. We’ve had a ton of fun with it. I’ve been stoked to be a part of it and get to know these guys better and interact with ya’ll around the subject of music.

Well we’ve picked up another voice and now 4 of us are cranking out the music reviews. Up most recently has been the review of Fee’s Hope Rising. Before that we had Brenton Brown, Todd Agnew, David Crowder*Band just to name a few. It’s our hope and desire that through the voices of 4 different fellas putting in their thoughts into a review with a brief synopsis, a bottom line verdict, and our own personal favorite tracks and songs that we think could help your worship services that you’d enjoy an incredible introduction to some new and familiar artists!

Some of you have already picked up on it but I’m stoked to announce that the Joint Review has gone “official” and moved from this:

to this:

The Joint Review

HAHA!

AND we’ve gone from reviews showing up on our individual blogs to our very own website that can be found at www.thejointreview.com. Check out the music. Show some love and spread the word.

Thanks ya’ll!

This Day in Music – God of This City Discussion

I’ve been slacking a bit with the new music territory but it seems finally most everyone’s up to date with the fact that Passion’s got a new release. So why not discuss it? I gave you the setlist and video options already but what do you think? I think I’m a bit too close to the Passion crew for my own good. I can’t stay satisfied with these releases because there’s nothing new and what is new isn’t worth getting the whole CD. I mean seriously we have only 5 new songs here (I’ll give you Kristian’s because he’s not as well known,) we have 4 songs that have been on multiple releases, and 4 songs that have been previously released.

  1. Let God Arise – Chris Tomlin
  2. You are God – Charlie Hall
  3. God of this City – Chris Tomlin
  4. O, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing – David Crowder*Band
  5. Hosanna – Christy Nockels
  6. Sing, Sing, Sing – Chris Tomlin
  7. Beautiful Jesus – Kristian Stanfill
  8. Walk the World – Charlie Hall
  9. We Shine – Fee
  10. God of our Yesterdays – Matt Redman
  11. The Glory of it All – David Crowder*Band
  12. Shine – Matt Redman
  13. Dancing Generation – Matt Redman
  14. Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) – Chris Tomlin

All the previous released material was given a bit more gusto in the post-production or rerecorded but it’s still not enough. The one that stands out is what they did with You Are God. It really pops this time! For the Passion fan who isn’t obsessed and has all the previous releases I imagine this CD would be GREAT for them! It’s full and it does capture a real sense of what Passion’s doing. As Louie says, it captures a moment of Passion and gives it to you. However, I’m still thinking the highly favored Tomlin side of the equation is a bit much. Between Crowder, Fee, and Kristian we only get 4 tunes.

So what’d you think? I know the last full release fell on deaf ears by most. This seems like a noble attempt to rectify the situation. Did it work for you? Are you not SATISFIED?!?!

Total review of the new stuff coming up!

This Day in Music – Passion: God of This City Song list

Passion’s New One

The latest installment of Passion goodies is now available for pre-order and while the track list has not been “published” it looks like this is what we’re getting:

  1. Let God Arise – Chris Tomlin
  2. You are God – Charlie Hall
  3. God of this City – Chris Tomlin
  4. O, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing – David Crowder*Band
  5. Hosanna – Christy Nockels
  6. Sing, Sing, Sing – Chris Tomlin
  7. Beautiful Jesus – Kristian Stanfill
  8. Walk the World – Charlie Hall
  9. We Shine – Fee
  10. God of our Yesterdays – Matt Redman
  11. The Glory of it All – David Crowder*Band
  12. Shine – Matt Redman
  13. Dancing Generation – Matt Redman
  14. Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) – Chris Tomlin

That’s a hefty list! Composed of live material taken from Passion 07 and the Regionals at Boston and Chicago, I’m sure the quality we’re getting will be of the Passion caliber that comes from their “live” recordings.

The rub is that it’s “new” music from the crew but of the 14 tracks it looks like we’re getting only 5 new tracks. However, those 5 tracks all look really exciting! Apparently Kristian‘s new tune is just awesome!

Another thing that looks promising is the work from Charlie that shows up here! Could we have a new Charlie Hall CD this year?!?!?! COULD WE!! I really liked their last release and loved You are God so I am totally eager to see what he’s bringing to the table next.
I’m pumped seeing Fee and Kristian on here. Nothing against Tomlin, I mean he’s huge and his music is accessible and singable and Carson’s like The Edge’s protege with mad skills but as far as leading the next generation, we’ve got to see more from Crowder and Fee and Kristian on these CDs! So seeing only 2 Crowder songs on here kind of disappoints me, especially with a tune I already have a live version from the Passion 07 release. I hoping, HOPING these aren’t the same versions I’ve already paid for. Ah well, at least I have the Remedy for my Crowder slump (rim shot please 🙂

Regardless, it looks to be a great list of songs to bring us out of the Everything Glorious “slump” (I personally liked that collection sans Party but apparently it wasn’t as widely well liked by others.)

Go preorder it at the 268 store or wait for it to come to iTunes or wait further still for the CD/DVD release that will probably come out after we’ve already bought this one 🙂
