460. Everyone’s Beautiful – Waterdeep
EVERYONE’S BEAUTIFUL (1999)
Everyone’s beautiful and that includes this band and especially this project. Primarily seen an alternative worship band, this album branched a little more into rock and mainstream content lyrically. Waterdeep is husband and wife combination of Don and Lori Chaffer.
There is this powerful dynamic on this album between the sadder and darker moments in life juxtapose against the hope and faith found in Christ. Touches of Dylan and Neil Young combined with the White Stripes and The Innocence Mission are seen throughout with a combination of ethereal, atmospheric sounds and straight, stripped down rock and roll.
Introspective, creative…borderline indulgent, in a good way, this remains the best Waterdeep project from beginning to end.
