Review of BEAUTIFUL OFFERINGS
By Timothy Yap, Oct 01 2015
When Big Daddy Weave named their much anticipated seventh studio album "Beautiful Offerings," it's not hyperbole. These songs are truly "beautiful" in the sense that they are contemplative, reflective, and deftly crafted with lyrics that scratches behind the superficial veneer. And they are "offerings," in the sense that they are paeans of our heartfelt struggles and praises offered as worship to the Almighty God. Rather than going the steely EDM gauze route, they have opted to let the acoustics of warmer instruments such as the acoustic guitar, banjos, and the gentle pull of strings pave a more tepid feel for what is Big Daddy Weave's most reflective record. This is not to say that this album has no feet moving moments, it's just that ballads are at fore this time round.With an orchestrated grandeur of strings leading the way, the title cut "Beautiful Offerings" is worship at its best. Rather than coming to God with a puff-up chest, "Beautiful Offerings" finds a broken protagonist coming with his tatters to God for healing again.
