Let The Ground Rest album review by Chris Renzema



Read Time:1 Minute, 9 Second

What You Need To Know…

Let The Ground Rest: B-Sides EP, a documentary project by Chris Renzema, follows the sophomore album Let The Ground Rest which released on April 2020. The EP features two new tracks plus three live versions from the original project.

What It Sounds Like…

Even with drums being heard, Renzema still allows an acoustic flow into each song. “Springtime” certainly has that buildup on an acoustic beat, but it’s never overpowering. On “Let The Ground Rest,” Rezema enters a slightly folksy sound along with orchestrations. Overall, the entire project simply stands out as his best work.

Spiritual Insight…

A go-to song for so many, I would go for “Tear My House Down” on the spirituality. Of all the things we go through, often times situations become challenging or we end up ruining something specific in our lives. This is where start praying for God to rebuild the house we had built up inside ourselves. The song is, essentially, a perfect prayer that each on of us has prayed a time or two.

Recommended Download…

“Let The Ground Rest” has got to be my favorite with its characteristic folksy sound and driving guitars long with strings all built into the chorus.
