REVIEW: Guy Penrod – Blessed Assurance

Producer: Guy Penrod
Record Label: Servant Records/Gaither Music Group

[yasr_overall_rating size=”medium”]

Guy Penrod is a staple in Gospel Music. Those who know him from his days with the Gaither Vocal Band recognize the heart and vocal ability of this powerhouse artist. He has returned with another project of hymns with his special touch on arrangement. Let’s dive in!

The album begins with a fresh arrangement of the classic title cut, “Blessed Assurance.” An acoustic guitar and a progressive drum track really bring this song to life with Guy’s tender vocal.

“Before the Throne of God Above” is a very mention-worthy tune. Lyrics like “My name is graven in His hands, my name is written on His heart” bring the listener to the eternal reality of the salvation and unrelenting love of God. “Standing In The Need Of Prayer” is a great memorable lyric with a progressive-bluesy arrangement. This would make a great radio single choice.

Once again, Guy has put together a fabulous project of classic material that tells the Gospel story in a fresh and catchy way. This project is sure to catch the hearts, ears and souls of those who listen. Fabulous job!
