So, we were going to the state fair that summer. Sounded cool. We were going to see Hillsong Young and Free and MercyMe. I was pretty excited for Young and Free, but I had never really listened to MercyMe. Sure, I'd heard of them, but I had really only heard a few songs, and I didn't really like them that much. But when we were walking out after the concert, I was blown away. They were awesome! Their lead singer, Bart, was really funny, and their music was really good! So, when we got home, I started to listen to some of their other albums and music, and this new album was really a step up from the others. Now, "Welcome to the New" is one of my favorite albums. Now, before I begin the rankings, I just want to say: Just because some songs are at the bottom of the list, doesn't mean I don't like them! Usually, when you get an album, there are at least one or two songs that you just don't like. This is one of the rare albums that I really like all of them!
So, here are the songs, with my favorites at the top and least favorites at the bottom.
1. Gotta Let it Go
--Love the instrumentation in this song!
2. Welcome to the New
--Great way to start the album. Pretty awesome!
--A really fun, catchy song!
4. Burn Baby Burn
--Talking about being the light of the world (burning). Another fun song!
5. New Lease on Life
--Singing about how we are changed in Christ.
6. Finish What He Started
--Great song with a great message. We must finish the work God began!
--I love the lyrics on this one! God is greater than anything in this world...
--God is perfect, and he made us the same way through Christ's death.
9. Dear Younger Me
--Very thought provoking...
10. Wishful Thinking
--It's not about us!
