12 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Mature reflection and ever-youthful energy come together on The Dream, Sanctus Real’s 11th album. The Ohio-bred quintet have lost none of their spiritual commitment—or pop-rock ardor—after nearly two decades of touring and recording. Songs like “Easier on My Heart,” “I Need You,” “Same God,” and the title tune display a fresh electronica influence that bolsters the band’s melodic strength and rhythmic drive. Lead singer Matt Hammitt especially shines on “33,” a loving tribute to the ties of faith and family. All told, The Dream is a grown-up restatement of the Christian mission that has guided Sanctus Real’s music from the start.
