Brave New World

Brave New World

$14.99

Cd

Amanda Cook has crafted a striking solo album, her debut solo project with the Bethel Music Artist Collective. "Brave New World" presents 14 original songs that chronicle her imaginations and confessions about God's nature. The album's combination of dynamic lyrics, symphonic instrumentation, and crafted melody creates an ethereal atmosphere of worship. Each track is intentionally spacious and rich, inviting listeners into a time of encounter with God, free of distraction. Amanda's greatest desire through this album is that the permission and discovery God has taught her about would become an invitation for every listener to experience the same - a journey of His mystery explored.

Beautiful
5 stars By Reece, Nov 11 2015
I first heard of Amanda cook through the song "Shepherd" from the You Make Me Brave album. After that I knew that any album she makes will be good!
Its a beautiful album with a good balance of soft and intense songs. My favorite song from this album is Pieces; A song that defines Gods Love. If you like Bethel ie Jenn Johnson or Steffany Gretzinger you'll love Amanda cook! Happy listening!

New Bethel Artist
4 stars By Felicity S, Oct 15 2015
The first tracks are amazing, almost to Kari Jobe's standard. The latter half of the CD isn't as stunningly amazing, and I don't like the remix of Closer (sustained syth sounds hitting and echoing through the WHOLE song), which is disappointing, but it's still a great CD and you should get it if you like Bethel, Jesus Culture, andor Kari Jobe. She does a new version of Shepherd, which is pleasant, and doesn't insult either version. There are some subtle different music styles, eg. marching percussion in Heroes. Two of the songs are piano instrumentals, with a different sound. Those won't be everyone's preference, but it is excellent musicianship. My favourite song is Never See the End.  Initially in Bitter Sweet you can hear every breath, however once the guitar comes in it covers that, and her signature clarity and pure sound comes through. Brave New World and Flagship are instrumental piano. 

Amanda does a lot starting with simple percussion and piano. 
She uses a lot of scripture in her lyrics, which give her songs a depth that is difficult to find in modern lyrics, while having a modern, fresh and different sound, so it's not boring and uninteresting. Over all her diction is quite clear - especially considering other Bethel artists. 

Amanda Cook is an artist to watch, as she will improve with time, and this is an excellent debut album.

Review of Brave New World
4 stars By Timothy Yap, Oct 01 2015
Many of us were introduced to Amanda Cook when her song "You Make Me Brave" became the soundtrack of our lives when we were intimated by fear.  Culled from Bethel Music's #1 album of the same name, Cook is not only one of Bethel Music's songwriters and worship leader but she's also signed onto the imprint as an artist. Joining Jenn Johnson, Steffany Gretzsinger, Hunter Thompson and others, Cook has released her debut solo debut. Utilizing "You Make Me Brave" as her launching point, Cook has decided to take a whole odyssey of faith into a brave new world of trust and dependence on Jesus.  In many ways, this album is her travelogue where these 13 songs function as landmarks across her voyage.  Each track poetically and artfully captures her (and our) struggles, hopes, and joys of what it means to journey with Jesus into her (our) brave new world. 

Hailed from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Amanda has a dynamic history as a worship leader and songwriter that began at a young age. She has been a part of the Bethel Music family since 2010 and currently ministers in the US and internationally.  Cook has written many anthemic worship songs for Bethel Music including "You Make Me Brave", "Closer", "I Will Exalt", and "Shepherd".
