Style: Soaring, piano-heavy worship rock; compare to Coldplay, Phil Wickham, Keane

Top tracks: "Yours," "Spark," "Mountaintop"

Building on the popularity of Christian radio single "Manifesto" from the Introducing the City Harmonic EP (and awkwardly tacked on to the end of this record), this Canadian group's full-length debut takes cues from Coldplay and other anthemic rock bands, though the City Harmonic's lyrics are a cut above some other worship bands following the same trend. "Mountaintop," for example, incorporates snippets of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech to chilling effect. The album starts off remarkably strong and meanders a bit in the middle, but it's a worthwhile addition to the ever-growing Coldplay-as-worship canon.
