Imagine, if you will, Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy back in their Uncle Tupelo days deciding to put out a CD of gospel music and you’ll have some idea of the amazingly soulful music on Ryan Delmore’s latest release, The Spirit, The Water, and the Blood. If it hasn’t already been invented, Delmore just created the worlds first alt.gospel CD. Not since The Byrds came out with “Jesus Is Just All Right” has there been a CD that has done such a great job of pulling together devotional spirit with the music of the times. Highlights for me are “Mercy, “Sing Like Mary Sang,” “Falling Down,” and “Jesus’ Name”
