A Second Opinion



    June 2017 might be remembered as one of the best months of Landry Cantrell's life. Following two very solid albums that were self-released in 2011 and 2014, Cantrell's label debut, Projections, comes six days on the heels of Cantrell proposing to his now-fiance Kelsey Hicks. Hicks even makes a feature on the duet "Indian Summer," one of many highlights on this stacked album, which (by my count) currently stands as the best pop album of the year. The twelve gems on Projections, all written or co-written by Cantrell, strike balances between many different tensions: both fun and interesting, impressive and catchy, lightweight and thoughtful. How often is an album perfect for focused headphone listening and windows down summer cruising? The make-or-break for a good pop song is often its bridge; it's the point when we ask, "Is this just a rehash of what came before?" or "Should I press skip already?" Cantrell proves time and again that he crafts stellar bridges, elevating tracks like "Separate," "Dreamin'," and the B. Reith-lite "Feedback." In the bridge of "Indian Summer," the engaged couple sings a profound response to fears of the permanence of marriage. It's not all summery here, though. On "Deeper Love," and especially on its thematic antithesis "Underneath," Cantrell does what this genre so desperately needs; he sings like he actually knows the Christian faith. He isn't afraid to address the earnest elements of following Christ, while his constantly fabulous vocal performances and gorgeous harmonies make it all go down easy.
