Review: Stars Go Dim

Stars Go Dim are the latest Christian band to explode onto an already vast and successful world of CCM. Joining the likes of Chris Tomlin, Tenth Avenue North, Rend Collective and many more, Stars Go Dim create music that the masses can enjoy and that fits well in the arenas as well as church services. Their self-titled record has already seen a digital release but is also making its way onto the physical shelves soon and if you enjoy Christian pop or Christian rock, this is the next band you need to check out. The first major label release for Stars Go Gim, this record has a little bit of everything. There’s pop, there’s rock (not heavy but it’s there) and there’s worship. The worship foundations of the band show through beautifully and strongly on many tracks- especially the opener- a modernized rendition of “Doxology,” which anyone who’s spend time in a church services will recognize and find a home with. The rock songs hit hard, the pop songs will make you dance and the intimate songs will fit perfectly with your daily quiet time or for when you just want to slow things down a bit. Each song is written and recorded exquisitely and with great detail and it shows. There\’s something on this record for everyone. With a long stint on this year’s Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, this is the perfect time for Stars Go Dim to release this record and they’ve released a powerful one at that. This could be the record that puts them on the map- and with it being their major label debut, they’re off to a great start. Rating: 9/10 -Reggie Edwards
