Here is my Song

Kim Walker | Format: Audio CD

Review by Rich Houghton

Here is my Song

It was the sheer weight of recommendations that prompted me to purchase this album (without having heard any of it), from people undoubtedly gripped by its contagious joy and passion for Jesus. Here is my Song is an excellent album with an incredibly appropriate title – it does exactly what it says on the tin! Each song reflects Kim’s heart for God so unreservedly and passionately; a clear snapshot of her heart’s cry to, and affection for, God.

Kim Walker loves Jesus, this is clear, and for me this is the most inspiring driving force in this album, as she continually expresses this throughout. Here is my Song is brimming with beautifully crafted lyrics, melody and music in memorable hooks and phrases such as: ‘You are all I want, You are all I need, everything my heart could hope for’, and ‘You are good, beyond measure, and my heart longs to give You pleasure’.

Phil Wickham | Format: Audio CD

Review by Ben Symons

Cannons

This second album by Californian Phil Wickham resets the bar on culturally relevant Christian music. The combination of a stunning voice, powerful songwriting and superb production makes these songs as radio friendly as any other brit-pop sound out there.

Wickham has an ability to convey deep desire for God and his ways without simply stuffing as many Christian clichés into a song as possible and instead by using ‘normal’ all-be-it cleverly poetic language. Finally a Christian artist with genuine talent and an album you wont have to turn off in embarrassment when a work colleague asks for a lift home!
