Christiansongs (1999)*

Price: $6.00


*Not Accepting This Title

Joy Electric make savvy, sweet, supremely catchy synth-pop ditties that glorify Christ. This 1999 BEC Recordings release continues down the techno path trod on 1997's Robot Rock. The joyous songs on Christiansongs are sung and composed by Ronnie Martin in a breathy, high-pitched voice and are performed exclusively on old-school analog synthesizers, vocoders, and the like--no fancy, new-fangled samplers or drum machines here. Think Gary Numan, New Order, or Soft Cell, without that heavy air of late-night decadence. It's an exceptionally effective formula and the retro elements are handled with unironic, straightforward simplicity. All of Martin's songs give praise and the majority are based on passages from scripture (which are printed below the lyrics). The beautiful, fast-paced ‘Lift up Your Hearts,’ for instance, is based on Timothy 6:12 and concludes with the lyrics, ‘Are they ashamed to bear the name / When all the while they fool themselves / With fake acclaim they never get.’ --Mike McGonigal Standout tracks are a cover of Keith Green's 'Make My Life A Prayer For You,' and the heavenly closing track 'Birds Will Sing Forever.' Many of the songs on this project encourage young believers and the bands they idolize to be bolder and more explicit in their message, thus the title. Songs include: 'The Voice Of the Young,' 'Children Of the Lord,' 'Disco For A Ride,' 'Lift Up Your Hearts,' 'I Sing Electric,' 'Make My Life A Prayer,' 'Singing In Gee,' 'True Harmony,' 'The Magic Of,' 'Synthesized I Want You Syntheiszed' and 'Birds Will Sing Forever.'
