This is Your Kingdom Come Now Album Review
This is Your Kingdom Come Now is a brand new album (just released today!) from Vineyard Worship and Casey Corum and friends. It was recorded live at Sugar Land Vineyard church. The album combines modern rock, R&B, and gospel for a unique, and largely mellow sound. The album contain 14 songs designed to be used in congregational worship.
One Blessed Mamma says: Although the vocal qualities and obviously the lyrics were quite different, several times the instrumentals called to mind a U2-esque feel. In general, while not my usual genre, I liked the l sound. The first two tracks in particular really ministered to me. But, as much as it pains me to say it, I have a few cons as well. I feel like the album is a little too repetitive for my taste. While repetition is a great thing in corporate worship--it makes it easy for large groups of people to quickly learn new songs and participate in the worship-- it loses its magic when it's jsut one person listening in the car. My teen daughter remarked that the songs were LONG (5-6 minutes each) and repetitive. And I think another con is that all the songs on the album have the same "sound" so there is not much auditory diversity. I found a few songs were all I could listen to in one sitting, even though I liked the music.
This is Your Kingdom Come Now can be purchased directly from Vineyard Worship's site. It is $11.99 for the CD or $9.99 for a download of the album. Also on the site are free tutorials for playing 3 of the songs on the album.
