One of the most successful albums in recent Christian music history, 'Burn The Ships' is now being acknowledged as the Smallbone brothers' greatest work so far. It is truly crammed full of good things. "Joy", with its thunderous drum track and its surprise snippet of the Sunday school oldie "Joy In My Heart"; "Pioneers", featuring their wives Moriah and Courtney - an outstanding song on rebuilding a relationship which has gone cold, 'to build our home in the great unknown'; "God Only Knows", the haunting anthem dealing with depression and suicide which has caught everybody's imagination with its numerous new mixes and with its Dolly Parton guesting version but remains a powerful anthem in its original Imagine Dragons-style form here; and the title track, a reminder that we shouldn't be looking back to the past or retreating back to our old ways are all exceptionally produced and powerfully sung chunks of Christian pop rock. An absolute gem of an album.
