Let's face it: if you're familiar with JesusfreakHideout, you may know that most of us are not huge fans of the modern praise & worship scene. It's not anything to do with the fact that it's praise & worship, cause we all sing those very songs from our hearts at church and in our devotional times. It's simply from a musical perspective. And musically, groups like Hillsong and Michael Gungor Band are just bland and run-of-the-mill. Then, in 2007, Tooth & Nail treated us to a new signing, the label's first praise & worship band, The Glorious Unseen. Tonight The Stars Speak is refreshing. The production value helps so much, especially to bring somewhat of a raw feeling to it, not the overproduced and way-too-polished sounds that are all too common in the AC world anymore. Vocalist Ben Crist has some vocals that are a little hard to handle, but they also add so much to the ambience and rawness of it. This a great album for anyone who wants something new in their praise & worship album repertoir. Go ahead, give it a listen and see what you think. - Scott
