Legacy Volume One - The White Songbook (2001)*

Price: $2.00


*Not Accepting This Title



Joy Electric is one of the more unique groups in Christian music, building its songs with nothing other than vintage analog synthesizers. The sound, pioneered by such 1970s German electronic groups as Kraftwerk, can be an acquired taste. That hasn’t stopped Joy Electric from amassing a fervent following from six albums and a smattering of EPs.

On its latest, the ambitiously titled Legacy Volume One: The White Songbook, group mastermind Ronnie Martin borrows from another relic of the ’70s: the progressive-rock concept album. The tracks are longer and more detailed than 1999’s Christiansongs. The disc is segmented into 'chapters,' and instrumental tracks bridge the movements. This is no light stuff—indeed, The White Songbook is the first in what Martin says will be a several-disc series with the theme of leaving behind a meaningful legacy.

Still, Martin shows he hasn’t lost his knack for big hooks. 'The Boy Who Never Forgot,' 'The Heritage Bough' and 'Shepherds of the Northern Pasture' rank among Joy Electric’s smartest. And though his lyrics lean toward the obscure, several take aim at a perceived lack of artistry in the Christian music industry, giving the album a welcome edge among its synthesized layers.
