I had to listen over and over again. I had to nod my approval as I reviewed this album.
With a mature fusion of ska, punk, and some pop mixed with indie rock, Luke Dowler is one of the few emerging Christian Music crooners to reckon with today. He's got that 'Him' in him. Although he's had to come through difficult periods of group disbandment in the past before he set sail on solo efforts, thus coming to terms with the realization that the declaration of the Father's Heart is his calling.
Growing up in a Marine's household, Luke's upbringing has indeed helped groom a disciplined and tenacious musician, which is evident in his former release Three Minutes from Home 2007. However,Luke's expression of passion, unashamed adoration, and a transparent heart of appreciation unto God for the works of Christ at the cross, is reflected even deeply in Compared to You 2010 makes this production even better than the former. You wouldn't know when your heart responds to God's love as Luke begins with the "Intro" beats leading into the title track "Compared to You", which begins with a plea for God to "melt down our pride deep within our conscience" in preparation for a full blast of God's presence in the following nine tracks. Luke's music is for worshipers seeking to touch the heart of God.
2.Compared to You
3.Hope of the Nations
9.Worth it All
10.Least of Perfect
