Sounds like: Sturdy rock with a heart of praise; compare to Wilco, Gungor, Neil Young

Top tracks: "Our Hearts Bleed," "Sins Are Stones," "Murdered Son"

Could McMillan be the first contemporary Christian artist to break into the indie rock marketplace? The sound of his fourth album makes a pretty serious case in favor of that. Economy is a strong, turbulent collection that rambles with the same mid '70s rock-influenced drive of artists like Wilco and Bright Eyes. The only potential possible hurdle to crossover success would be the nakedly worshipful lyrics that proclaim how "our hearts bleed for you Lord." This is a rare work that feels just as right when leading a Sunday morning service or soundtracking a late night house party.
