Horizon Community Church is comprised of a small network of local church bodies across the state of Oregon, and, like many larger churches nowadays, they're yearning to make something more of their music ministry than just playing on Sunday mornings. Under the blanket name Horizon Music, the worship leaders have banded together to release a multi-artist worship album called Victory. With the plan being to reach a younger generation, and perhaps some that wouldn't normally listen to worship music, Horizon has tapped into the musical interests of the youth and young adults today, generating a handful of worship songs with a heavy pop and electronic leaning. A good portion of Victory is full synth-laden hooks and drum machines, but most of the songs also have a particular "worship ballad" feel. Songs like "Hope Awakens," "Waterfall," and plenty of others are anthemic in nature, and would fit on K-LOVE or other Christian pop stations with no trouble at all. One of the strongest offerings on this album comes later in the tracklist; "Why" features a slightly slower tempo and uses mostly organic instrumentation, though the synthetics are not altogether absent. This song is a personal highlight, and one that provides an opportunity for a more intimate worship experience. It's also the most Sunday morning-ready song of the bunch. Victory is another in a recent string of synth-driven pop worship albums that many churches have been releasing as of late. If you're a fan of worship teams like Equippers Revolution, Long Hollow WAVE, Hillsong Young & Free, or Elevation Youth, then Horizon Music might have something for you.
