“We were leading worship a lot together but hadn’t really looked past that,” says lead singer, Sean Curran. Boy, are we glad it didn’t end there. One part David Crowder Band, one part Hillsong, and one part in your face rock ’n’ roll worship mixes for a tasty concoction as the debut from Sparrow Records artist Bellarive (it means beautiful river) drops.

 More: Programming, gang vocals, crunchy guitars, and passionate vocals throughout. The definition of irony: the cut, “Sing,” is the highlight of the album—a mind-blowing instrumental. Rock anthems abound on this gem of an album.

 Less: There is no doubt this is music by which to lead your church family into worship, but only the more progressive (musically speaking) church families will find these arrangements suitable.
