Review: Writer Dye: Deux or Die

Playdough is the kind of artist that makes inspired music.

Review: Excellent

There’s something about the artistic brand of hip-hop that Propaganda has created. The music that he creates is laced with honesty that is hard to find in most of today’s modern music.

Review: Ten Stories

There’s something intriguing and definitely different about the music that mewithoutYou creates. From the eclectic composition to the incredibly vivid writing of Aaron Weiss, each release from this band brings something different. My first mewithoutYou album was Catch for Us the Foxes in 2004. The album was so full of passion and powerful content that [...]

Review: O Ransomed Son

Anyone who has heard Ascend the Hill’s 2010 release “Hymns: Take The World But Give Me Jesus”, knows how a single album can create an atmosphere of worship. The much anticipated follow up “O Ransomed Son” is out now and is probably the most incredible worship experience recorded. I don’t hesitate in saying this because [...]
