There was one perfect album in the mix this time around. Cloverton was just about the definition of what Alternative should be. All that was lacking was a photo and a dictionary. Coincidentally, of course, they are first on the list.
- Cloverton - Patterns
- Crave - Crave
- The Digital Age - Evening Morning
- Falling Up - Hours
- Falling Up - Midnight on Earthship
- Gungor - I am Mountain
- Jars of Clay - Inland
- Nations - Nations
- Seabird - Troubled Days
- Search The City - Flight
- Derek Webb - I was wrong, I'm Sorry, and I Love You.
I loved Gungor this time. Not perfect, mind you, but really loved. I say that because a lot of reviews criticize it for being too "new age" and "Not a Worship Album". Of course, for someone who loves New Age Music (yoo-hoo Mannheim Steamroller), I said, "you say it like it's a bad thing."
A few more to go. To all the entrants of the Great WENC Night Beat 3rd Birthday Giveaway, thank you. If you were a winner, your prize was shipped. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
