Since Kari Jobe’s Majestic album is one of my current favorites, I quickly agreed to review her latest “The Garden”. Lyrically, the songs are excellent as is Ms. Jobe’s beautifully pure voice. At times, however, my husband and I both thought that the studio background music nearly overpowered her vocals. I suppose that this is definitely a matter of our personal taste but we agree that we much prefer her live worship albums.
“The Garden” is undoubtedly a much more personal and introspective collections of songs than “Majestic” which is such a powerful worship CD, Despite not being overly fond of what I considered to be overproduced background music, I did find several of the songs to be quite meaningful, especially “Heal Our Land”.
I am positive that as I listen to “The Garden” more and become familiar with its songs, it will grow on me as is often the case. I would, however, love to hear this album in a live setting.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this CD that was provided by Flyby Promotions. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music. Coming off her last live album, Majestic, which featured the worship anthem “Forever” and radio hit “I Am Not Alone,” Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, The Garden, full of brand new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection. Finding inspiration from life’s joys and hardships, Kari leans into the firm foundation of Christ through it all.
