Calvary Chapel Jupiter: CD Review

Calvary Chapel Jupiter Worship CD BUY NOW

Last week Jeff at Calvary Chapel Jupiter emailed me and asked if he could send me his new CD in exchange for a review. I said…duh..of course. It showed up and I got my first look at it. Not let me preface this. Along with being a worship leader I am also a graphic designer so I am very picky when it comes to crappy design. So this thing is in my hands and I look at the cover and go “WOW” finally a non signed artist actually put something together that looks good. I unwrap the plastic and it just as cool inside. It’s not in a plastic case, but in one of those cool double door cardoard cases with the CD in the middle. Super clean design which I love. Not mainstream and no clip art. Already I am intrigued.
Pop the sucker into my CD player and the first song hits me right away. Very foo fighters sounding. Great guitar riffs  and drive. Does it stop there? I dont think so. Great song writing and it doesnt get stuck in a typical style or lyrically.

Highlights:
Glorified: great song and uses the ebow which in my book takes it up 3 notches
Unchanging: great medium tempo song with a very singable lyric and melody. I WILL BE USING THIS SONG IN CHURCH
Marvelous: very matt redmon beautiful news sounding. great feel to this song. I love it
You Deserve it all: very modern sound also very reminiscent of the new redman style. I think this song is also a must do.
Worthy of the Call: wow…just wow..
of course there are more…honestly this CD is brilliant and very surprising.

Production
These guys did a great job with this. I really hate overly produced musi. you know the stuff that goes through a yuck filter. Well this CD is great because the production is top notch yet you still walk away feeling like these guys can actually achieve this in one of their services. The vocals stand out and Jeff has a great voice. The guitar sounds are modern but also have a real classic tube driven sound to them

Conclusion
This is a must buy CD. There are some great songs on here that any church can incorporate. I think a few of them I will have to lower the key a little, but these are more than church ready. right now my band is in a transition so I am running all acoustic and I still think I can pull off the rockier ones.
Great CD 4 out of 4 Stars

Thanks Jeff

  1. There’s one on the way to me too… but since I live in Ireland I might get it next year some time… heh heh. Look out for my review in a couple of weeks.

    It’s a great idea Jeff has sending out cd’s like that. I think all the other churches should do the same! ;-)

  2. ha ha…oh yes all other churches or musicians with CD’s send them to me for review…Im closer than ireland. LOL LOL
