The Newsboys' latest album is a stunning follow-up to their gold-selling collection, "Adoration: The Worship Album." Produced by frontman Peter Furler, "Devotion" comprises anthemic songs, ideal for corporate worship yet intimate and personal enough for universal appeal. Lead single "Presence (My Heart's Desire)," written by Furler and noted songwriter Tim Hughes, is gaining substantial support at Christian radio. "Landslide of Love" marries the Newsboys' pop sensibilities with a potent lyric that boasts poetic lines: "Every time a teardrop falls/It's kicking up dust in our world of pain/Let's get drenched under God's good rain." Great vocals, taut musicianship and engaging songs have always been the cornerstones of the Newsboys' career. With "Devotion," such qualities are infused with a new sense of purpose.—DEP
