With Brian & Jenn having spent 15 years as worship pastors for the groundbreaking Bethel Church in Redding, California there can be few modern worship ministries with less to prove than Brian and Jenn. But there's no resting on their laurels here as every track features a symphony orchestra and from the off "Mention Of Your Name" featuring Jenn and "Only Jesus" featuring Brian shows that the balance between their plaintive voices and soaringly dramatic classical arrangements work beautifully. The particular standouts are "I Won't Forget", a moving confessional with lyrics many will identify with ("You came in the night and tore down the walls that held my broken heart/When all I could see lay ruined and scarred/Your light shattered the dark"). Just as moving is "Mercy And Majesty". There is one song here which breaks the worshipful focus, "You're Gonna Be Okay", a song of encouragement for those going through a bad season. Another gem from the Bethel Music movement.

Product Description
After All These Years presents new music penned by Brian and Jenn, along with never-before-heard worship songs that have been years in the making. From its start, the albums title track sweeps listeners across a moving orchestral landscape paired with honest lyrics sung by Brian.

It amazes me after all You've done, it amazes me, You're still running after us. This theme marks the project as a whole: a reflective look back on God's faithfulness, and a hopeful looking ahead.

Stylistically, the album takes a distinct turn from anything Bethel Music has previously recorded; lush arrangements recorded by a symphony orchestra are a hallmark of each track.

In lyric and instrumentation, the project evokes a feeling of timelessness and unfettered hope. Each song reflects the seasoned journey of its writers, while capturing the wonder, conviction and tenderness of heart that has marked this last season of life for the Johnsons.
