by: Big Daddy Weave
After four years of inactivity, long-running contemporary Christian rock band Big Daddy Weave return with their sixth studio album, Love Come to Life. The album comes after the 2011 greatest-hits compilation The Ultimate Collection and 2009's Christmas album Christ Is Come. The lack of a proper album for so many years signaled to many fans that the band might be calling it a day, but the long wait for a new set of tunes was attributed to personal challenges and adversity the band was facing in the time the album was being worked on. Love Come to Life's 12 devotional tracks blend spirited alternative radio production with a slight folk-rock bent, with huge choruses and acoustic instrumentation not too far removed from the early sounds of the Dave Matthews Band. Standout tracks include the titular track single and "Magnificent God."
