This is the album CHH & CHH fans needed!!
Gods Goon is exemplary.
In a day and age where CHH artists are wrestling with who their target audience is, BRM has found a fantastic balance. BRM doesn't pull any punches, from beginning to end "Gods Goon" is raw, real and in your face. It is obvious through these songs that BRM has a love for God and a love for people. He clearly desires to see people come to know Jesus and for the church to take God and evangelism seriously. "Gods Goon" is an album that plays well for the believer and the non-believer. There are many testimonial aspects to this album; for instance, "Where to Go" is a powerful song where BRM is sharing about an extremely hard time in his life and how lost he was. What I really like about this song is that BRM is very open about what was going, he isn't hiding things, there is a picture painted that I am sure many can relate to. This song sets the stage well for the next track "Anxious" which has a beautiful and relevant chorus. I don't think I need to go into details concerning the message of this song but something I love, is how these 2 tracks pair, but what I enjoy even more is how they lead into "To the Clouds". "Gods Goon" is extremely well thought out, it is very intentional in its layout. It's purposeful.
For the believer this album will challenge you and hopefully spark a fire to reach the lost for Jesus. "I'm Ready", "Wind Em Up", "Goon" & "Pop Off" make it clear that BRM understands the call to go and make disciples. There is a boldness all over this album that is not only refreshing, it is so needed. BRM's passion for Jesus is so evident, he knows where his gifts come from and it is also evident that he is seeking to bring glory to God with his gifts.
Here are my overall thoughts...
To CHH artists: "Gods Goon" has raised the bar. BRM has created something that should challenge those of us in the game, this album should push all of us to get better at what we are doing. Also, take the message in "Let the Fire Out" to heart and examine your life in response to the message of this song. May we rejoice with our brother in his accomplishment and may it fuel us to rise to the occasion, for such a time as this...
To CHH fans: "Gods Goon" is an instant classic, this is as an album that you will go back to often. "Gods Goon" is also an album that you can show your friends who think CHH is lame. I also ask that you let this album challenge you in your walk with Jesus. You may not be a rapper, but God has called you into the greatest mission of all time. As a believer you are part of God's redemptive plan for all creation. God has called each and everyone of us to share the Gospel and to make disciples. If you want to live a life that matters, this is that life.
