Church Music is the fifth original album from the ever creative David Crowder Band. Church Music has a very creative sound, focused on the more electronic sounds then the traditional blue grass and acoustic sounds that DC*B has always used. This is the second to last album from DC*B, with their last album coming out the fall of 2011. Church Music’s most popular single is How He Loves, but any listener will love Oh Happiness, all about grace, All Around Me, a cover of a popular song by the same name, and Shadows, all about how life is hard and sometimes we need to wait on the Lord. This is the kind of album that you want to play on full volume in the car, and it has 17 solid tracks. It is a great testament to the joy that we have in Christ. You will enjoy this one.
Crowder writes with enthusiasm and realism that is trademark of his music. The subtitle of Praise Habit is “Finding God in Sunsets and Sushi” which alludes to the remix album, which remixes eight tracks from the Illumination album. Praise Habit is about a repetitious action of praise, but rather about praise being like a nun’s habit, a shroud that we put on to dedicate ourselves to God. The book itself is a synopsis of Psalms. The only knocks, if you think this is a knock, is that it mainly uses the Message as it’s source of bible reference, and that the two names on the back are two huge people in the Emergent church movement. The book itself is sound, and definitely gives the glory to God.

Buy, Rent or Own: I would buy this one, if you have the money. A great look at praise and worship, a topic that isn’t often discussed in books.
