Christian music is not a genre. The complexity and diversity is simply too vast to nail all Christian music together to one specific type of music. Christian music is actually something much bigger than a genre. It relies upon diverse artists each contributing their own unique style and technique, showcasing many different genres. Our differences in musical preference, style, and genre are united in the fact that we love Jesus!

Lovelite contributes to this ever growing collection of diversity within Christian music with their very unique sound. I tried to think of some comparisons stylistically but unique is the word that I keep coming back to. It’s the only fitting way to describe this work of art; each song is quite different.

One song can resemble the contemporary worship groups like Hillsong, while others sound more like a stylistically blended creation resembling a piece from Gungor. I enjoy the blend of harmony used in several of the songs. Some seemingly random noises and instruments only further creates the interesting and unique experience of this new album. Some of the music is a slow tempo, relaxing, and at times melancholy sounding, which seems to contrast the worshipful hope-filled lyrics. This is especially apparent in songs like “Wonderful Jesus.” While other songs bring a high-energy vibrancy that keeps the album away from stagnant pools of repetition.

As published on Lovelite's website, “Lovelite brings an energetic infusion of euro-pop sensibility and lyrical depth to the congregational worship scene. Led by the husband and wife team of Andrew and Jen Polfer, two worship leaders inspired by the thought of reshaping the mundane, the band’s anthemic, atmospheric style lays a foundation for its heartbeat: to share in the character of God’s creativity.”

I wanted to include this quote because it explains their diversity and creativity better than I could. Truly the album seems to morph and change as you listen to the songs. I think even the order of the songs on the album makes for a creation that should be listened to and enjoyed as a whole. My favorite song is “King of love”. It may not rank on my top 3 list of 2013, but I’d certainly feel like I’d missed out if I had not had the opportunity to listen.
