Sounds like: Lukewarm worship rock; compare to Chris Tomlin, Casting Crowns, Mark Schultz
Top tracks: "Give My Life Away," "Different Light," "Love Come to Life"
The worship rockers Big Daddy Weave have settled into a nice comfortable groove over the course of a decade-long career. Their albums come out like clockwork, and the music on them fall into a niche of adult contemporary pop with few frills and fewer surprises. Their new disc follows this template to the letter, fluttering along in the background with piano-driven balladry and mid-tempo barroom stompers. Were it not for an inspiring heart that urges themselves and their listeners to move their lives forward in the light of the Lord, this album would have little to recommend it.1
