If there is an album I was excited to hear, it’s this one. I have actually never preordered an album before, but I did this one back in May. The excitement was real. Plus, hearing songs here and there, I already had some favorites and it was all sounding good. So let me unpack it a bit.
First, something I love about Mosaic MSC is that their sound is completely their own. They completely embrace their uniqueness which makes their music stand out in a good way and doesn’t sound like something you’ve already heard. They’re a breath of fresh air in Christian music.
The second I heard “Speak to Us” I knew I was going to love this. I basically, more or less, watched the whole live recording through Snapchat. There’s always one song in every album that sticks with me way before it’s actually released and that song was it.
The album starts with “Across the Universe,” which I think was perfect because it builds up and sets the mood for the whole album. “Heartbeat” and “Speak to Us” are upbeat but not in an overwhelming way. They’re chill and captures the LA vibes. One of the songs that completely caught my attention was “Not Afraid.” It’s one of the slower songs but the lyrics completely hit home and it’s a beautiful track. Also, if you’ve listened to their first album, Glory & Wonder features a new version of “Never Stop.”
The album is so well done that you won’t even notice that this was recorded live. I love Mosaic MSC because they push their limits and show how different and amazing worship can be. They have a sound all their own and I’m excited to see where they go to next.
