Reviewed by Tony Cummings

All those Cross Rhythms listeners who have been enjoying the band's jazz-tinged single "Shake" will have already been expecting something fresh from the best selling CCM veterans. And 'Welcome To The New' doesn't disappoint. Eschewing any temptation to stay within a radio-friendly formula, here Bart Millard and co let eclecticism rule and bring in elements of R&B, black gospel, country and even a trace of Irish folk (no doubt thanks to their extended touring with Rend Collective). Where lesser bands would be swamped in all the style-hopping MercyMe never miss a beat, whether they are offering a fuzzed out retro rocker on "Gotta Let You Go", a dirty blues riff on "New Lease Of Life" or a delicious opening title track which with its bouncy, brassy, pop hook will remind believers that Pharrell's "Happy" is okay but we can get happiness-plus with joy. All in all, 'Welcome To The New' sounds like a band released from the industry expectations of jumping through limited stylistic hoops and I've no doubt that this is their best ever album.

MercyMe's highly anticipated follow-up to the powerful The Hurt & The Healer adds loads of fun and celebration to the unwavering faith that is the band's hallmark. The lead single Shake sets the tone, with its sunny, upbeat vibe that never lets up!
