Album Review

Reviewed 2016-01-31 
On Amanda Cook's Brave New World every song is beautifully written, arranged and performed. The album also features studio recordings of songs that Amanda Cook or Steffany Gretzinger, both worship leaders at Bethel Church (in Redding), have lead at Bethel's services, namely: Shepherd, Mercy, Closer (nos. 2, 5,8). The genre is closest to pop: there are synth keyboard and electronic sounds and effects combined with piano and symphony instruments and percussion. Interesting endings on songs. No FCC violations.
