Kicking off another week and back to the best of 2010 countdown. Coming in at #6 for best album of 2010 is the Nelons, Beside Still Waters. This album was released back in February. Current vocalists in the group consist of Jason Clark, Kelly Nelon Clark and Amber Thompson. This album was a return to that classic Nelons sound.
Personal favorites on the recording include: “The Love Of God For Me”, “I’m Going Home With Jesus”, “Jesus, What A Wonderful Name”, “Weep”, “Beside Still Waters”, “Consider Me” and “Settled At The Cross”.
The group turned in a great cover of one of my all time favorite McGruder songs, “I’m Going Home With Jesus”. Great production, song selection and powerhouse vocals make Beside Still Waters one of the year’s best at #6.
It just so happens the Nelons dominate the #6 spot. The song I chose as sixth among the best recorded songs of 2010 is “The Love Of God For Me” by the Nelons. This song was penned by group member Jason Clark as a praise song for their church.
It is one of the best ‘kick-off’ songs to any recording this year. Amber Thompson is featured and turns in one of her best vocal performances. The melody reminds me of the song “Don’t Let Me Miss The Glory”. It is also the group’s current radio single. It could become a hit for the group in 2011.
A brief clip is provided for #6 among the best recorded songs of 2010; “The Love Of God For Me”.
