Beautiful News

Beautiful News

by Matt Redman



Matt Redman's return to prowess came with this confident, emboldened collection of Brit-pop-style worship. Short of a rogue hit here and there, the talented songwriter had failed to live up to his potential with his releases in 2002 and 2004. Beautiful News put him back in the center of everyone's radar screen with its emotive, high-energy output. Even the ballads are crafted with pointed stylings that maintain the album's stirring momentum. The simple yet meaningful album title comes from John 3:16 -- common fodder for worship artists if ever there was any. Yet Redman injects creative imagery and thoughtfulness where others have settled for the routine. If Delirious? ever produced a cover album of Chris Tomlin standards, it might sound like this. Fresh, fervent, and potent, Beautiful News stirs the souls of young and old alike.
