EDITORS’ NOTES

From the first notes of the bouncy, analog-synthesizer bass line that kick-starts the opening track, “This Life,” it’s clear that MercyMe is bringing a bit of the ‘80s into the 21st century with its new album, The Generous Mr. Lovewell. The collection offers other styles, from the title track’s sunshine pop to the adult-alternative rocking of “Move” to the Eno/Lanois-worthy ambience of the closing track, “This So Called Love.” But the big drums and choruses of “All of Creation,” the explorative guitar work at the front and back of “Only You Remain,” and the power-keyboarding of “Free” take listeners back to a time when hair mousse and primitive drum machines were the norm. The group’s lyrical messages remain strong and present, as heard in the narrative and musical power of the touching “Won’t You Be My Love.” And to get a glimpse of how the magic was created, there’s an exclusive iTunes bonus video of in-studio footage.

The Generous Mr. Lovewell

Mercy Me, have mercy! This is a great album. The message rings through crystal clear throught the captivating beats that you can't help but tapping your feet to. Personal favorites are Move and Back to You which are just absolute fun wrapped around meaningful words that are bound to bring smile to your soul ... and Only You Remain which is a song that one can not help but fall into worship while singing. To top it off ot was available today ... the 3rd ... 24 hours before it was actually due to be released. What a pleasant surprise, and a great way to end the day. May we all take the premise of this project to heart and try to live a little more like The Generous Mr. Lovewell.

Amazing, I'm stoked, but expected nothing less!

Wow! I was not the least bit hesitant to buy this like I normally am when I buy albums. It's so fun, and I knew that it would be amazing. I heard them sing All Of Creation at the Rock and Worship Roadshow and hearing that live I knew it'd be worth it. And let me tell you: it is. I reccomend this to anyone; anywhere. It's beyond phenomonal. It's such a cute and fun theme, the whole album. Bart Millard just makes it all so energetic and fun, the song Mr. Lovewell is SO cute and fun. Buy this album if you like good music. Cause this is good music.

Jesus loves you!
