The Museum: My Only Rescue
Style: Worshipful, socially conscious rock; compare to The Fray, Keane, Tenth Avenue North
Top tracks: "All Over the World," "My Only Rescue," "Not for Sale"
Named after a monument that marked the end of communism in Romania, The Museum continues to dive deeply social issues. Gleaned from activism with Compassion International and the anti-slavery organization Not for Sale, this album overflows with the pursuit of justice, while urging listeners to break out of comfort zones. There are hints of worship throughout, but it's all wrapped around massive power chords, escalating electronics, and arena-ready balladry.
