Best Of 2016: #15

ftsOne of the more unique Southern Gospel albums released in 2016 ranks 15th among the best of the year.  What happens when you mix Southern Gospel with the folk rock sounds of groups like the Lumineers and Of Monsters And Men?

The answer to that question is Mark Bishop & Forget The Sea.  Mark combined with daughters Courtney and Haley to provide listeners that very sound.  While many Southern Gospel listeners shied away from the album, this listener considered it one of the most enjoyable listening experiences of the year.

One of the first album releases of 2016 and it finds a home at #15 among the best albums of the year..

The (5) Best Songs From The Album:  (1) “Baptize Me In The Rain”, (2) “Take To The Sky”, (3) “You Love Me Anyway”, (4) “Everything I Give” and (5) “Sometimes God Whispers”.

2016 changed that when the Perry Sisters returned with Lineage.  A sixteen song collection of new material and some Perry Sister hits from the past.

It was track #2 that stood out on the recording and ranks 15th among the best recorded songs of 2016.  Diana Gillette penned “No Stranger To The Pain”.
