As we all know, Lincoln used to front the original Sonicflood before becoming a full time worship pastor. After some patchy earlier solo albums he finally delivers with this one. It is one of the rare albums that once you press play, you never want to press stop. It makes you get up on your feet and dance round the house, air guitar at the ready and singing at the top of your lungs. Brewster has cleverly crafted a worship album which sounds equally good on your home stereo, your car CD player or in your church. The songwriting is top rate, the singing passionate and the guitar work often sublime. As a bonus there are accompanying worship resources and sheet music. Once you hear this album's soaring melodies, you'll want everyone to hear them. There is material here that deserves to raise the roof at worship meetings across the globe. Ear-to-ear smiles and a lifted soul guaranteed.

If like me you like guitar driven music then you will know how difficult it is to find a worship CD’s where the electric guitar is the main instruments (with the bass and drums coming a loud thumping close second). Either you get the ‘sound’ and the lyrics have all the depth of a puddle in the Sahara or you get real depth of lyric but played in a style of music that you can only truly appreciate if you wear Arran jumpers, wear a beard and tug your ear while singing in a nasal kind of way.
It’s even worse if you want ‘happy’ celebratory worship, we often get angst, passion (nothing wrong with that), pity poor me styles but it is very hard to get music that lifts the mood, I know call me picky but hey that’s me. You know music that puts a smile on your face and puts a spring in your step. Music that you sing along to, at the top of your lungs, on the old mp3 player while on the bus or walking across town, to funny looks from those who have the misfortune to hear you.
Well I have been listening to a worship CD over the last few weeks by an American chap called Lincoln Brewster, which has all three of those elements, guitar driven, good lyrics and ‘happy’. It has made a refreshing change, so I thought I would post up a review of the CD in question “Today is the Day”
The CD is an eclectic mix of styles and in some cases seems to be heavily ripped from some secular music, at least in feel and riff. For example the third track (Give him Praise) on the CD has over tones of Paula Abduls “Opposites attract”, track five (The Arms of my Saviour) has an opening very similar to Parisian walkways, Track 8 (The Love of God) sounds like something off Stings Twelve Sumners Tales CD, track 10 (Let your glory Shine) is a direct clone of Bon Jovi’s “Lay your hands on me”.
But don’t let any of that put you off. There is not one bad track on the whole CD, all have excellent lyrics and Mr Brewster can make the guitar sing, wail and scream. Especially watch out for the ‘poodle perm rock’ solo on Let your glory shine.... the band are obviously having fun playing that! I play in a worship band that often “Jam’s to the Lord” at practice I know how powerful that style of free praise can be and how glorify of God it can be.
So get out there and get your copy today. Then you too can sing as you walk / drive / ride and get funny looks!
One cautionary note however you will need to buy an air guitar to go along with this CD!

This album is great! You can listen to it whenever, it is an album that you can have on in the background with Christians and Non-Christians. It has a real modern tone to it and puts a :) on your face!!
