So...this weekly addition has turned into a monthly thing. Very bad of me. Sorry. But I do have a band that I'm loving right now. They're not new but they have changed up their vocalist and I'm telling you...I like the additions and changes very much.
So...without further ado...I give you.........THE NEWSBOYS!
Now, don't get me wrong. The old Newsboys will always had a dearly loved place in my heart and mind, but I have to say...the new addition of the former DC Talker, Michael Tate, gives the new Newsboys a competitive edge. When I listen to the new project it sounds contemporary...not Christian music contemporary...but Bruno Mars contemporary. And let's face it, that's an edge that the Christian music world has been missing for a long time.
Besides that (and really most importantly), this project is powerful. I'm meaning, Holy-Ghost-anointed-bring-tears-to-your-eyes-while-jumping-up-and-down anointing. Not very many groups that I've heard lately confront the social issues and false doctrines that fly around this Christian scene like this group. (Honestly, I mostly listen to worship music, but that's really a different point entirely.)
All of that to say this, the new NEWSBOYS...buy it NOW.
