Newcomers to the Christian pop scene, PureNRG introduce their self-titled debut album targeted for kids, tweens, and teens. In the world of music that young people are unfortunately listening to today, this trio couldn't have chosen a better time to jump into the market with a fresh new mix of fun, catchy pop songs that show their true desire to spread the Word to thousands in need.
With the soon-to-be absence of the group that practically defined the tween pop music genre, Jump5, PureNRG can keep their legacy going. From the first track on the record, "360," right down to the last track "It's Still Love," lessons of love, forgiveness, and setting a Christ-like example are found everywhere on this album. The upbeat song "What If" promotes being satisfied with who you are and who God made you. "Thy Word," a song originally sung by the legendary Amy Grant, is given a more pop-like feel but at the same time does not stray far from the classic, original version. One of the slower songs on the record, "Someday," shares many similarities with the MercyMe hit "I Can Only Imagine" and also proves that Carolyne Myers, 11, Caroline Williams, 12, and 14 year old Jordan Yates (who looks strikingly similar to Jump5's Brandon Hargest) have great and mature voices in spite of their young ages.
There is no doubt in my mind that this young and talented group is a breath of fresh air for parents in the midst of "This Madness" (ironically, that's the name of a track on this record) offered to today's young people through the media. Already they have performed for crowds of more than 3,000 and their cover of Kenny Loggins' 1984 hit "Footloose" is getting spins on Radio Disney as you are reading this. There is no question about it. PureNRG's positive, fun, and faith infused lyrics can guarantee that they'll be around for a long time. And that's a big relief.- Review date: 7/26/07, written by Logan Leasure
