Jason Gray "Where The Light Gets In" by Jon Ownbey (cmaddict.com) on 2016-05-25 12:03:57
Jason Gray releases his 6th album "Where The Light Gets In" under the Centricity Music Label. The album features 12 new songs and one hit single "Glow In The Dark" from a previous album. This album is no one hit wonder though, it showcases the strength of Jason’s songwriting ability.
The sound of this album is an upbeat contemporary sound that relies upon the strength of Jason’s vocal and guitar skills. The message throughout this album is one of hope, with lyrics that are fresh and don’t feel cliché.
All of the songs flow together very well and once you start listening, before you know it, you will be finished. What is most amazing to me and something I would have never known until doing further research into Jason’s career, is that he has a speech impediment. My only personal complaint about this album is there are a few places that almost have a country music feel and sound.
While not a pop or worship album, it is both lyrically and instrumentally sound. The upbeat message is sure to put a smile on your face and the length of this album make it a great deal. Jason Gray stands on his own as a true artist and is definitely a good listen. If you want a fresh new sound without cliché lyrics, then this is definitely an album that is worth a listen.
