This is pop nearing perfection. Remarkably, every track on this, Britt's second album, has the potential to become a US/UK mainstream number one hit with sufficient airplay. That success is beginning to show with the album and the title track single both hitting number one on the US Christian charts. With slightly breathy, sultry, intimate verses balanced with powerful choruses, each song radiates such positivity that you wonder how they managed to get the rainbows and sunshine packaged in. Track five sums it up as "Love's coming through your headphones". The prolific use of the non-lyrical vocals such as "Hey, hey, oh, oh" are a peculiar highlight as they scan well into the bouncy melody lines, and are well positioned to fit into the rhyming scheme; ie, "Oh, oh", "we ain't getting caught in the undertow", "dance everywhere we go" and "turn the lights down so we can glow, glow". Musically targeted at excitable teenage girls, the Christian aspect is brilliantly natural and portrays God as a normal integrated part of any teenager's life without dumbing down or hyped worship and is a major credit to Britt's songwriting. As a pop album it fits into a mainstream genre and consequently sounds similar to singers like Avril Lavigne, which is no bad thing.

Product Description
Fresh off the heels of her critically-acclaimed debut album, Say It, rock/pop artist Britt Nicole is back in the studio crafting her highly anticipated sophomore release, The Lost Get Found, filled with high-energy tracks, extremely catchy hooks, top 40 beats and lyrics that delve into the heart of real issues facing the youth of today, The Lost Get Found is an album that is sure to draw praise from tastemakers, youth, and radio alike.

Carefully constructed as a vessel, The Lost Get Found in Britt’s words is ”... simply about being who we are called to be as Christians, and through that, seeing the lost get found. I believe that when we become who we are called to be, the lost will come to know God. They will see that God is real, and that His love is greater than any problem, any fear, any sickness.”
