We Recommend - Phil Wickham, 'Cannons'

California worship leader Phil Wickham is a fairly new artist who's written a respectful collection of worship songs since his self-titled debut in 2006. I've noticed that his style, however, isn't for everyone. His vocals are undoubtedly unique and are expressed in a rather child-like fashion that is innocent and verbally poetic, especially in a generation where the Church is, in many cases, being fed with watered-down worship music; something generic that is stamped as radio-friendly. In my opinion, Phil Wickham's Cannons album stands out because it is creative and interesting melodically and captures lyrics that are true and honest. Do yourself a favor and spend some time on this album. It's sure to shed a great deal of light and hope to any open listener and willing worshipper. - Ben Cardenas

Our synopsis: "Phil Wickham's newest album Cannons stands out with brilliant innocence in a generation of watered-down ideas of worship, taking creative risks that you probably won't find in many of today's popular worship music." (Recommended by JFH's Ben Cardenas)
Perfect For: Fresh Worship
Song Highlights: "Must I Wait," "The Light Will Come," "You're Beautiful," "True Love," "Home," and "Spirit Fall."

So, what are your thoughts on and experiences with the album Cannons? Do you recommend it? If so, why?
