Why We listened?
Why You should too.
As for sound, this album is great. Anomaly sounds very different than other music we know from Lecrae. Lecrae keeps evolving as an artists, and it is refreshing. There are not many artist who can't master so many different types of songs. Lecrae spits over fresh jazzy sounds, but also hits us with his standard southern bangers, and even sings on a joints.
Three songs really stand out on this album.
Say I Wont feat Andy Mineo
This song plays off a song from Andy Mineo's EP "Never Land". You have to give Lecrae crdeit, getting on a track with Andy Mineo right now is brave. Andy kills everything he touches. Lecrae and Andy sound great together on this track and Lecrae matches the braggadocios feel of Mineo's verse. "Say I won't" is a dare for anyone to question the work these two will put in for their music and for their King.
This song stood out for its call to live and be different. The grimy feel to the song makes it a very clear what Lecrae thinks about the ways some of us live our life. We spend too much on ourselves and forget about the world. And the church is not exempt, because "the most segregated time of day is Sunday service, now what you think that say about the God you worship". Challenging and well done song.
Broken feat Kari Jobe
This song comes on with an epic sounding drum beat and Lecrae singing a little bit! The music on this song is so well put together. Lecrae's honesty is always refreshing and singer Kari Jobe ties it all together with a quality hook. I love this song! Two lines stand out to me...
"From heaven we all small. Ain't nobody buy a ticket, you better have will call. That reaper, he will call."
"Forget the kings horses, forget the kings men. The King is comin to put us back together again."
