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.”

“…You are absolutely perfect in the Father’s eyes! You can’t become more perfect than you already are. His heart is captivated by you!” Grace, resurrection, life, the finished work of the cross, and the impact on sin, death, and sickness, this conversation is an invitation to realize and awaken to the fact that we are co-seated with Christ. Robin speaks to the love of our Father, His affection – “He has always loved us we take His breath away!” We are loved in the same way our Father loved Jesus!

FELICIA MURRELL / EMPATHY; THE TREASURE OF THE INCARNATION

“The Spirit said to me, ‘I want you to hand to me everything that you believe to be true about God and let me hand back to you everything that is true.’”

Racism, deconstruction, shame, guilt, certainty, empathy, infinite mercy, grace, healing, and other-centered, self-giving love, in this amazing conversation, Felecia and Jason visit fear and prejudice while leaning into the AND of God’s always present, empathetic, reconciling love.

We don’t get to healing without Truth…(we) don’t get to healing in denial – so (we) have to own both the wound and (our) responsibility and completeness….”
