Welcome to the first ever "We Recommend" Blog! For a few years now, we've selected a record that we feel is well worth a recommendation from one (or more) of the JFH staff to YOU and placed it in a little box on the front page of Jesusfreakhideout.com. Well, we've decided it's about time to include you guys into the mix as well. How so? Well, here's the deal...
"We Recommend" includes our little one-line review plus a sort of "prescription," if you will. If you're looking for more thoughtful music or a worship record we feel breaks out of the box, we might specify that the record is "Perfect For" just that. Need a pick-me-up? Perhaps we know a record that works for us. So here's where YOU come in.
Each week, we will continue recommending a different record and then post a blog for it here for YOU to comment on how the record has affected you. But please keep in mind - *This is NOT FOR YOUR OWN REVIEWS* We're not looking for Reader Reviews here at all. This is where you can share on how a song or the whole album has affected you, maybe touched you in a certain way, and how you would recommend it to someone else (we won't approve comments that are just posts of reviews). Also, is this the first time you're even hearing about the record we're recommending? Let us - and others - know what you think about it you get a chance to check it out.
Anyway, here's the first one. Since Sixpence None The Richer is back this week with a new Christmas album, how about their 1997 self-titled gem!
