Review of "Where the Light Gets in"
By Timothy Yap, Jun 14 2016
The song titles on this record are intriguing enough to warrant the purchase of this record. "Death without a Funeral," "The Wound is Where the Light Gets in," and "Sparrows" are not your common run-in-the-mill titulars you would expect to see on the CD sleeve of a contemporary Christian release. Eschewing the trite and clich, the song titulars in many ways are indicative of the tenure of Jason Gray's new Centricity album. Adding new twist to well-worth tales, giving shafts of depth to well-worn themes, and imbuing lyrics with lots of memorable quotes, "Where the Light Gets in" is a tour de force exercise in creativity and ingenuity. Gray worked with nine high-profile producers on the project, including Jason Ingram (Chris Tomlin, Matt Maher), Ben Glover (MercyMe, for KING COUNTRY) and Colby WedgeWorth (Jordan Feliz, Lincoln Brewster). "Where The Light Gets In" features 12 new songs plus his Top 15 single from 2015, "Glow In The Dark." Taking the cue from Jesus' words as contained in Matthew 10: 29-31, "Sparrows" is an effervescently upbeat pop burner about trusting in the Father who loves us more than the feathered creatures. "I Will Rise Again," which has a 90s Nelly touch with its half-spoken verses, continues an optimism which is paradigmatic of the record.
