Artist: Master’s Voice
Rating: 3 1/2 stars
More: A phenomenal entry into the Southern Gospel worship movement. This quintet has great things in store. They even feature their sound technician on their website as an equal contributor to the album is admirable.
Less: The band uses a variety of lead singers as they segue through the album which at times can be good, but in this instance creates a dynamic that is too much variety. “At Home” is the weakest track on the entire album.
Southern Gospel lovers who are looking for their “Gaither Vocal Band” fix need look no further than Master’s Voice and their January 2020 release on Sonlite Records, Solace.
Solace features a typical fare of down home lyric expressing the honor and worship to which God should be attributed with the occasional “human perspective” ode thrown in to bring balance to the project.
Supported by the strength of songs like “Last of the Last Days”, “Five Minutes”, and the brass section flavored, “He’s Coming Back”, Solace is a perfect edition to any fan of the genres playlist.
