The Sounds of Daniel Bashta - CD Review & Giveaway

By Mathew Reames on September 06, 2011

The Sounds of Daniel Bashta is the new worship album from Daniel Bashta. It is in my opinion not just the sounds of Daniel, but the sounds of the next Season. I have been listening to this CD for quite sometime and it has truly been a revelation to me.

The Track “Like a Lion” has been released already as a single. Some may recognize it because David Crowder and Kristian Stanfill both did covers of this song. The song is full of Love and Hope. With its strong drive it makes for a great congregational praise song. I love the line in the bridge, “Let heaven roar and fire fall. Let’s shake the ground, with the sound of revival.” I love the thought of heaven shaking earth with sound.

Daniel pulls two wonderful duets in this album. The first is “Heaven” which is a duet with Mac Powell of Third day. This is beautiful song of passion. It is a very easy song but its powerful lyrics make it stand out from the rest. If you didn’t know this was written by Daniel, you would think it was by Mac Powell. His part suits him perfectly and really adds to the dynamic of the song.

The second is “Pursuit” which is a duet with Kim Walker-Smith of Jesus Culture. The dynamic of this duet is wonderful. Their two voices intertwine in a delightful mix of song and spirit. This is a song that really draws your attention to Jesus and calls you into his tangible presence.

As I said, I think this CD is a sample of the sounds of worship that we will begin to see in the next season. “Freedom Calling” is a song that I think demonstrates this. It is a vibrant, upbeat, faith building song. The strong driving rhythm of the guitar and drums really help to push you forward in worship.

Overall this is one of the few CD’s I can say really changed me. When I first received it, It came on the heels of a sermon series about the sounds of revival. So not only is it a phenomenal CD, but it reinforced everything my pastors were teaching. When you have that happen, you know God is speaking to you.
