JFH Staff's Second Opinion



Former Group 1 Crew member Blanca is back with her second solo offering, Shattered, a solid pop album with a great balance of upbeat tracks ("Remind Me," "Give It All," "Undeniable"), mid-tempo numbers ("Steady," "All In"), and serious slower songs ("Shattered," "Heaven"). Throughout the album, Blanca shares about her anxieties, struggles, and doubts, but then counters it with Christ's sufficiency in all areas of her life. Shattered is squarely focused on Jesus with a level of authenticity that is refreshing to hear; there is a slew of questions and thoughts throughout that can only come from someone who has truly wrestled with the faith (just listen to the first verse on "Undeniable"). Musically, the album uses fairly standard pop beats, though, from track to track (and during the songs), there are some dynamics in play that make it worth the repeated listens. Vocally, Blanca is at the top of her game--she has a fantastic range hitting high notes with seemingly little effort and even going pretty low at times ("Feel It"). Overall, Shattered is a step up from Blanca's eponymous solo debut in that there are more individual standout tracks, and it's more sonically cohesive. Highlights include "Remind Me," "What If," "Real Love," and "Undeniable." - Review date: 9/13/18, Christopher Smith of Jesusfreakhideout.com
