NATHAN JESS : Phoenix. (Integrity Music)
This is a collection of rock / pop style worship songs, which are fairly easy to listen to. The Album starts off with a song called “Awake My Soul” which kind of sounds to me like a more refined version of early Delirious. There are also some slower more acoustic songs on here too, and also some more powerful atmospheric slower arrangements. I don’t think that this is the kind of album that I’d listen to everyday to be honest, it’s one of those that has lyrics from the more intelligent end of the spectrum, you need to listen to it rather than leaving it on in the background. . Nathan has a quite distinctive vocal style that works well with this kind of music. It also is a well produced album, with some excellent arrangements, and well worth a listen. 9/10 Andy Sayner.
