Young Oceans is one of those artists who show both a level of passion and creativity that have been displayed on each one of their albums.
I would consider I Must Find You by Young Oceans to be one of those albums, encompassed by a theme I can only describe as one of "holy desperation." Very few albums display a level of passion, honesty, and, quite frankly, a sense of anguish as the songs on here do.
Each one of the songs on this album flows almost like a hymn, but with a modern, almost ambient feel from a musical standpoint. With this being said, Young Oceans's music is an excellent companion for quiet prayer and devotional moments. That's not to say that their music is overly repetitive or even boring; all of the songs on this album have their own unique style while still maintaining the ambient, worshipful atmosphere the band is known for.
My only complaint on this album is that I did not find the closing track, "To Hear Your Voice," to be all that special. While it's clear that the band wanted to end the album on a quiet, reflective note, I feel like the album's epic title track, or the driving "Only You," would have been a better way to wrap up the album.
All in all, I found this to be a very complete album that left me feeling satisfied after it was over. It's a great album for quiet, contemplative moments of worship. Young Oceans may never get the recognition they deserve like some larger worship acts, but if you're looking for something different in your worship music, look no further than this album.JFH Reader Review: Review date: 7/22/19, written by Daniel Lockerbie for Jesusfreakhideout.com
