Andy's Messianic Music

Andy's Messianic Music
Blessed Unseen Guest

Street Date: December 19, 2015
Style: Christian Messianic / Folk
Official Site: Official Website
Buy It: iTunes


As I have stated many times, music is subjective. What one person finds very intriguing, others may find incredibly bizarre. A punk-rocker may hate the musings of opera, while the classical music lover may abhor current pop music. With that in mind, I present to you the album Blessed Unseen Guest from Andy's Messianic Music. Remaining as unbiased and open-minded as possible, I can't hide the fact that this may be one of the strangest albums I've come across. Weighing in at 19 tracks and well over an hour, it's a very heavy listen. In addition, the instrumentation is droningly synthetic and borderline monotone. At times, there are glimpses of very interesting arrangements, but the brilliance quickly flat-lines. Songs like "Exalted One" and "My Perfect Father" are great examples of this; the initial melodies are beautiful, but with the introduction of the vocals, it collapses. Eastern music as a whole has beautifully intricate instrumentation and this album does not present that musical richness. Music that sounds like it should be communal in context is somewhat misrepresented with stacked vocals. Songs like "Talk Talk Talk" and "Praise Your God O Zion" showcase some really good melodies, but because the music and vocals are lacking, the songs can be more of a chore than a pleasure to listen to. Lyrically, the album is extremely literal - which there is a time and place for - however, some artistic psalmist writing would have been much appreciated. At the end of the day, the listener decides what he/she really enjoys because they are the ones who are using their own money to purchase a product that they believe is worth it. If you're wanting what only Andy's Messianic Music can provide, you will be pleased. If you're not willing to venture into some slightly bizarre music, you may want to sample some music clips before making the purchase.
