The follow up to 2014's 'Alive', this second album from Nashville-based boy band Mass Anthem is a supremely polished affair and features the kind of upbeat pop-orientated sounds you would expect to find in the higher echelons of the mainstream charts. Consisting of brothers Chad and Tyler Sowards together with Joey Antansio, the trio kick things off with the buoyant song of perseverance "Keep Runnin'" - complete with some show-stealing guitar work - whilst inspirational songs like the title track and the candid "The Real Me" celebrate how God uses ordinary folk like you and me. The lads and their sizeable production team provide catchy hooks aplenty in order to keep the listener's attention and, although there is nothing much artistically to distinguish Mass Anthem from the vast array of other similar acts out there in both the CCM and secular markets, there is no getting away from the fact that this is a skilled piece of work that communicates the love of God in a relevant and entertaining way.
