Your Name

Phil Wickham
Phil Wickham
By various artists, Integrity Music

Your Name features songs by praise and worship artists, including Phil Wickham, Paul Baloche, Lincoln Brewster and Leeland Mooring. With the exception of the title track, each of these pop-rock tunes explores a different name for God, from “Healer” and “Almighty” to “Lord” and “Savior.”

“Life,” a strong progressive rock tune sung by Joel Augé and Mooring, brings to mind something by Tree 63. It’s the best song here, as the rest of the album settles into a mostly predictable series of pop-rock tunes. Some of these combinations of artists, all of whom are immensely talented, are less than interesting with similar-sounding male artists often paired together.

That’s not always the case, but even when Josh Reedy and Ayiesha Woods team up for “Almighty,” Woods’ vocals are hardly noticeable on much of the song. However, the album ends on a high note with Brewster and Adam Agee offering up “Rock,” a fun, bubblegum-pop song with punk influences, more evidence that despite its shortcomings, this is a solid album that will resonate with many fans of praise & worship pop-rock.
