The first offering from husband/wife duo Nathan and Christy Nockels is a solid, mainly acoustic based project with creative lyrics and some good hooks. Christys vocals are standout. She does a nice job of singing with plenty of soul and emotion without over-doing the vibrato thing.
Her beautiful voice really shines through in the projects best cut - "Gloria". But something more important shines through even stronger within this song - the glory of the songs inspiration - Jesus Christ. This is a worship song in the purest sense...
"Wish I could roll like the thunder
To leave the Earth below in wonder
In an effort to praise You
Wish I could fall like the summer rain
And every drop would sing Your name
In an effort to praise You..."
Other standout cuts include: "Take Me There", "Everything", "Peace", and "Walk Your Road".
"Watermark" is yet another excellent project from Michael W Smiths record label. If Rocketown Records keeps this up, "Smitty" might have to give up touring and become a bigtime record executive...
Na, thats impossible. He never shaves!
