Heaven's Crush: A Review

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Jason Clark returns with his first new music in many years.

The former Fringe frontman also has a solo album entitled Surrendered & Untamed which also became the direction and title of his first book.

Heaven’s Crush is a crowdfunded EP that accompanies his latest book, Prone to Love.

While I love Jason’s written works, his music has always moved me in a powerful way. it’s the kind of music that brings the chaos of life into focus. The spacious, dreamy sound of the title track opens the EP in precisely that way. A variation on “I Love You, Lord,” Clark’s voice is the driving-force, falling somewhere between a gentle whisper and a humble prayer. It’s a slightly surprising opening actually since it’s so intimate and reflective.

“Grace” and “Becoming Like You” pick up where Surrendered & Untamed left off. They are more refined than that batch of songs, and “Becoming Like You” even has more of a congregational worship bent to it, but overall the atmosphere is still much the same.

“Remember” rounds out the album with its upbeat “Oh Oh Oh’s” and gorgeous guitar work. It’s likely what Dave Matthews would sound like musically if he’d never been discovered and made it big. It’s not quite as sporadic or jammy, but it’s got that same deep roots feel about it.

Overall, this is another beautiful addition to Clark’s catalog. He remains one of the most talented, yet mostly undiscovered, communicators out there. The Heaven’s Crush EP is all too short in regards to time, but it more than makes up for it by the fact that every song is wonderful.

If you are looking for music that will move your soul rather than your feet, then Heaven’s Crush is for you.”

Jesus, The Stranger

I think Jesus showed up as a stranger, so their limited ideas regarding the goodness of God wouldn’t cut them off from experiencing the goodness of God…so their limited ability to understand friendship with God wouldn’t cut them off from experiencing the friendship with God…so their theology wouldn’t undermine their ability to encounter the nature of Gods kindness…so their understanding of the reconciling love of God could be experienced without their belief in the retributive nature of God getting in the way…so the law would not cut them off from experiencing grace…so their understanding of mercy could bend the knee to mercy…so their thoughts on justice wouldn’t divorce them from experiencing justice

Can You Be Saved After You Die?

Can You Be Saved After You Die?

In measurement-based systems, God’s forgiveness, and grace, and kindness, and reconciling love are ultimately limited aspects of His nature, while we redefine wrath and condemnation as God’s eternal and defining attribute…

What Am I Still Lacking?

What Am I Still Lacking?

The young fella replied, “All these I have kept; what am I still lacking?”…“What am I still lacking? It’s a good question, a recognition that something is missing, an acknowledgment that something still doesn’t measure up, a confession of incompleteness. What am I still lacking? is the conclusion of living in the context of law instead of grace. What am I still lacking? is the beginning and end of every transactional approach to God.
