The day has come, the well anticipated John Mark McMillan album, Economy, has been released.
I have been sitting with this album for about a month now and the more I listen the more I like it.
John Mark continues to make music that is his own music and yet represents thousands of people. That might sound like indie blog-esque hyperbole, but going back to a post I wrote a while ago (found here) about the difference between writing for others and writing for yourself, John Mark does a great job of producing music that he is wrestling with instead of wondering what others want to hear.
This album is John Mark and his bands music, and for that I love it and I think you will as well.
