The Frozen Chosen: Pop

We continue with our announcement of those albums released in The 2nd Quarter of 2012 (Actually January-March 2012 for eligibility purposes). We move on to Pop Music. Considering the size of the genre, it isn't surprising that it is also one of the largest genres this quarter. (Modern Worship wound up the largest this quarter)

Pop Music

  • Anthem Lights - The Acoustic Sessions
  • Audrey Assad - Heart
  • Jon Bauer - Forevermore
  • Adam Cappa - The Rescue
  • Rachel Chan - Go
  • Nicole Croteau - Anchors & Silhouettes
  • Kari Jobe - Where I Found You
  • Lindsay McCaul - If it Leads Me Back
  • Jimmy Needham - Clear the Stage
  • Britt Nicole - Gold
  • Rubyz - Unchanging
  • Sixteen Cities - Love is Making A Way
  • Take 6 - One
  • Jaci Velasquez - Diamond
Of all of the eligible entrants this quarter I was most impressed with newcomer McCaul. Also I thought Jimmy Needham put out a far superior album than Nightlights. On that one I was impressed with the Radio release, but on hearing the entire album, it fell short of the wow factor. This time he took it up a notch.

The next post in the series is Hip Hop. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
