I Will Follow
Rating: 4/5 stars
Jeremy Camp has been a fan favorite for years, captivating audiences with his tight blend of rock, pop and worship and his compelling story of loss and, ultimately, redemption. While the singer has continued to maintain momentum in recent years with a steady stream of solid radio hits, the songs he unveils on his new collection, I Will Follow, ring with a level of excellence that’s even above Camp’s normal superior standards.
The award-winner co-wrote all 11 tracks, and Seth Mosley (Newsboys) added a dose of youthful production to keep I Will Follow feeling bright and energetic from front to back.
“Living Word” bursts out of the gate with a fresh intensity mirroring the singer’s renewed passion for music and ministry. Meanwhile, “Christ In Me,” “Same Power” and “He Knows” move listeners with gripping lyrics and building choruses. However, the biggest and best surprise is found in “Finally Home,” a departure for Camp that finds the singer hitting some high notes and channelling Train. With a riff reminiscent of American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life,” the track reflects on the glory of heaven and features gang vocals at the end from Camp’s wife and two daughters.
I Will Follow is easily the best addition to Camp’s discography thus far. (Note: A deluxe edition, including three bonus tracks and two acoustic cuts, is also available and well worth the extra dough.)
