Weighing in at a hefty 17 tracks with 73 continuous minutes of music, Church Music is not just a lot of music for the money. The latest by David Crowder Band walks that fine line between accessible and innovative, a real feat when you imagine how hard it is to say something new in the religious realm, a place where hymn writers have been waxing poetic since King David penned the Psalms. This six-piece band manages to make the age-old message of Christ's love new with its prog-rock approach to worship. Standouts include "God Almighty, None Compares" and the epic "Eastern Hymn."
