CD Review - MercyMe's "The Hurt and The Healer"

One of Christian music’s biggest and most beloved acts, MercyMe bowed their brand-new project, The Hurt & The Healer, this week to a No. 1 debut on the iTunes® Christian Albums Chart and in the Top 10 (at No. 10) on its overall album chart.

About MercyMe 
Since their debut in 2001, Grammy-nominated, American Music Award and multiple GMA Dove Award winners MercyMe have sold over 6 million units in CD and DVD sales, while being one of few Contemporary Christian music groups to have had all of their recordings certified Gold or Platinum, as well as garner 23 No.1 multi-format Christian radio singles, and four consecutive mainstream radio hits with “I Can Only Imagine,” (No. 4 AC/top 25 on Top 40/Hot AC), “Here With Me” (No. 4 AC), “Homesick” (top 10 AC), and “So Long Self.” In 2009, BILLBOARD named MercyMe's "Word Of God Speak" the #1 Song of The Decade and the group the #1 Christian Songs Artist of the Decade, with an additional #1 as the Christian AC Song Artist of The Decade as one of the industry's most notable talents. MercyMe made history as “I Can Only Imagine” surpassed 1 million digital downloads, making it the first song in Christian music to go platinum in the digital domain. The multi-platinum selling band has sold out venues including Radio City Music Hall and has been seen on The Tonight Show, CNN, Fox New Channel¹s Fox & Friends, ABC News, CBS¹ The Early Show, and on the pages of Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, USA Today, Billboard, and more.

My Take on the CD
I have to say that this is probably one of my favorite CD's that MercyMe has put out. The music is amazing and will sink its teeth into your head before you know it. Beyond that though, the message that the music is sharing is so important and meaningful. Whether you are a long-time fan or have just discovered this amazing group, you will want to listen to the music on this CD, as you will not be disappointed!
