A Glittery Release | Posted March 26, 2012
Britt Nicole is easily one of the most popular and youthful female artists in the Christian music industry. Her music is catchy, uplifting, and powerful. With two incredible releases under her belt (plus a great acoustic EP), Britt returns with Gold.
The album begins with "Gold", which is easily one of the best tracks on the album. It's a bouncy, upbeat track with inspiring lyrics and powerful vocals. "All This Time", Britt's third number-one hit, is a gorgeous piano-led adult contemporary track.
"Look Like Love" is a cheery midtempo song, while "Who You Say You Are" is a jingly guitar-driven track. "Ready or Not", featuring Lecrae, follows the mainstream trend of mixing pop artists with guest rap vocals. The song is an explosion of musical epic-ness that bursts at the seams with an incredible R&B flair.
"Breakthrough" is a brooding, dark track with a killer dubstep influenced bridge and powerful vocals. "Stand" is reminiscent of "Walk on the Water" from The Lost Get Found, while "The Sun Is Rising" is a tender ballad.
"Amazing Life" is a dancefloor anthem that is easily the best track on the album. The last two tracks, "Still That Girl" and "Seeing for the First Time", are gorgeous ballads.
The two bonus tracks are absolutely fantastic as well. The Capital Kings Remix of "Amazing Life" gives the song an even more incredible, polished makeover. "Straight for Your Heart" is another beautiful ballad.
Overall, Gold is a near-perfect pop album that is sure to please fans and invite new listeners as well.
