Casting Crowns' "The Acoustic Sessions": Music Review

The top-selling act in Christian music since 2007, Casting Crowns has released its first acoustic project called The Acoustic Sessions: Volume One. The record is just that – simplified acoustic versions of some of your favorite Crowns songs, including “If We Are the Body”, “East to West” and “Praise You in This Storm”. In addition, two brand new songs, “Delivered” and “Only You Can Satisfy” are featured.

Stripped down to just acoustic guitars, a piano, Cuban box drum and an occasional hint of a violin, Mark Hall and company provide a welcome departure to their recent string of overproduced fare (i.e., Come to the Well). Some of the songs actually work better with the sparser arrangements.

In the end, The Acoustic Sessions: Volume One is a must-have for all avid Casting Crowns fans. For those who aren’t, it is still a good pick-up for all the incredibly rich, worshipful lyrics that are brought to the forefront by the simplicity of strings and a prayer.
