Not sure why this Georgia rock outfit was named artist of the year at this year's Gospel Music Assn. Dove Awards? Then give a listen to this enthrallingly well-crafted set, which showcases the band's many strengths (excellent musicianship and powerful songwriting, for instance). And lead vocalist Mac Powell is a magnetic presence that embodies Billy Graham's heart, Bruce Springsteen's passionate rock sensibilities, and Joe Cocker's vocal grit. His bandmates—bassist Tai Anderson, drummer David Carr, and guitarists Mark Lee and Brad Avery—are no less gifted. "When the Rain Comes" is a beautiful ballad; "Still Listening" pays musical homage to the Rolling Stones; "Show Me Your Glory" is

a shimmering worship jewel; and "Come Together" is a potent anthem for these uncertain times.—DEP
