SOUL-JUNK - 1960

Aint no junk on this album!

For anyone who’s familiar with Soul-Junk, you know that you can never expect what Glen Galaxy and friends will throw at you. For those that aren’t familiar, I suggest you pick up a copy of 1960 right now. Produced by Daniel Smith (yes, THAT one from Danielson), 1960 is Soul-Junk’s eleventh album, and one of the finest pieces of music you’d hear this year. If you don’t find yourself scratching your head sometimes while listening to Soul-Junk, then you’re not listening hard enough. Make no mistake about it, Glen Galaxy sings loud and clear about his faith. However this is not the “Christian music” that you think it would be. Listening to a few of SJ’s albums is enough to convince you that Soul-Junk is all about making true ART. And 1960 is no exception when it comes to great art. Listening to Glen sing his heart out over some really creative instrumentals on this album is a very moving experience. No doubt, this is one of the must-hear albums of the year, whether you’re a believer or not.
