Unbroken Praise - Album Review



Unbroken Praise
Matt Redman
Release Date: 15/06/2015

There is nothing not to like in Matt's new album recorded at the famous Abbey Road studios. Current favourites of mine are "It Is Well With My Soul" (watch below), "Abide With Me" & "Majesty Of The Most High". On this album Matt has worked together with a large number of well known song writers: Jason Ingram, Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Matt Maher, David Crowder, Ian Yates & Sam Blake amongst others. 

The whole album is full of raising, gritty and real lyrics, telling of God's glory & majesty whilst not ignoring the struggles which many go through! 

I can see lots of these songs becoming well known anthems, as ever Matt has written songs which should be easily applicable not just to personal times of worship but also amongst congregations & larger events. 

Review - from eden.co.uk
Unbroken Praise is the twelfth worship album from Matt Redman. Recorded live at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, with an audience of 300 worship leaders, it features tracks co-written with other UK and international songwriters.

Matt Redman is one of the world's leading worship songwriters, whose songs are sung each week in thousands of churches worldwide. His intimate, accessible and relevant songs have been inspiring praise since he began leading worship at Soul Survivor at the age of 15, under the leadership of Mike Pilavachi.

On Unbroken Praise, as with his previous albums, he has written a collection of songs which communicate God's timeless truth, and are musically fresh and engaging.

Abbey Road, 'the most famous recording studio in the world', has been host to some of music's biggest names, like Pink Floyd, Ella Fitzgerald and, of course, The Beatles. On Unbroken Praise, Matt Redman and his band have transformed the studios to capture the spirit of a live worship experience.

The cover art echoes the famous Abbey Road sign, and features signatures from everyone who made the album possible: songwriters, musicians, producers, technicians, and many more.

About the album, Matt says, "Unbroken Praise reveals a heart not wanting to be beaten down by the things of life, but to actually increase worship in those moments."

Matt Redman's previous album, 'Your Grace Finds Me', debuted at number one on the Soundscan Christian Music Chart. Matt has written some of the world's most well-known worship songs, like 'Better Is One Day', 'Undignified', 'You Never Let Go' and 'Bless The Lord (10,000 Reasons)', which won him two Grammy awards.

Matt has also written a number of books on worship, including 'Facedown' and 'The Unquenchable Worshipper'. Review from eden.co.uk
