Blessed are the Meekers....For They Shall Stay Current
Sarah gets it. What her fans expect, I mean. I was disappointed when The Benjamin Gate broke up, but when Adie Camp (formerly Adrienne Liesching) returned as a Solo artist, all the sound that was The Benjamin Gate, including her lovely South African accent, was gone. She sounds like any other Adult Contemporary Artist out there. Sarah, however has at least one song that could best be described as from Chasing Furies Lost Demos.
The CD opens with the title cut, and the listener immediately knows that this isn't your typical pop album. A dance hall drum beat, mixed with strings (or at least synthesized strings) is unlike most of the CCM Teen Pop out there. Fans of Chasing Furies would best be served by Laughter Comes Upon Us, Calling Calling, and Galaxy Forever.
If you're looking for a Pop album that stretches your musical boundaries, then you've got to check out Current. I have had a hard time just hitting repeat on this one. I especially love Damaged and the aforementioned Calling Calling. After many listens I have decided to go for it. Since my opinion of the album rises with each listen, I think it is fair to give this album a Perfect 5 Emerald Rating.
Curent releases March 6. Handle with care, It's Electric. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
