This rock worship outfit from Georgia have a pedigree that promises much. Laced with thoughtfully delivered lyrics, The Museum's music is full of hope and lead singer Ben Richter has a depth to his voice that hints to hidden power. Backed by a solid and tight set of musicians they are a talented group. The tracks on this recording are all well written and include some catchy hooks and sing along choruses. I was, however, disappointed by the reserved nature of the music. Far too often did tunes build, only to be reigned in before a crescendo. An exception to this is the standout cut "My Help Comes From The Lord" which has been released as a single and should gain the group a following. Other tracks worthy of note are the anthemic "The Call" and the singalong "Allelujah". The Museum have certainly played it safe, but have shown enough in this their debut to make me keep an eye out for further releases.

Product Description
Let Love Win is an uplifting album that reflects a clearly talented band that came of age as modern worshippers like Chris Tomlin first broke through. Instantly contagious melodies carrying a scriptural message are supported by layers of guitars that are both sparkling and scruffy as on first single, “My Help Comes from the Lord.”
