Jor’dan Armstrong – STRONGER | Review

12

“STRONGER” instantly made me feel an exuberance of maturity in both his music and his spiritual walk. Jor’dan displays a sense of confidence throughout the album about how he lives his life. This album gives us an inside look of how a Christian should live and how Jor’dan handles living in an unclean world. In “Stay Clean”, Jor’dan exemplifies that living in this world isn’t all about having swag. It’s about having a true relationship with Jesus Christ. He describes how he lives his life with “Jesus, beats, and fashion” and how to witness to people through his lifestyle.

Jor’dan does not disappoint in the variety of music that he can encompass on an entire album. With dance tracks like “Love if you wanna” to slowing it down in “Angel” to the progressive reggae-pop “Tropicana”, you discover the versatility that makes Jor’dan’s albums so unique.  His catchy hooks and raw production made this album both serious and fun.

The only downside I saw to this album was the brief use of autotune. Only a few tracks used autotune but it definitely masks Jor’dans smooth sound and instantly reminds us of a sound that is much emulated. However the use of autotune isn’t overpowering to the point of it being obnoxious and the production blends in with the vocals nicely.

The second half of the album really concentrates on Jor’dans’s relationship with the Lord and this is where Jor’dan goes deep with his feelings. In “Hands”, Jor’dan gives up all his troubles and shows us that all you need to do is lift up your hands to God. This is the ultimate surrendering song and Jor’dan does an amazing job of putting you in his place when things get hard. What I love about this song is Jor’dan shows someone how to surrender to God who may not understand when or how they should.

“STRONGER” will leave you satisfied and thankful to have heard that Jor’dan is stronger now than he was 3 years ago. In his debut album “Champion”, you find Jor’dan pouring his heart out as he searches for God and his desire to need His love. This is the perfect continuation where you truly see the growth in Jor’dan’s life. Jor’dan shows you what it’s like to be walking with the Lord for a while now and where he draws his confidence from. The song “I’m Down” portrays a vivid picture that Jor’dan will do whatever the Lord asks him to do. This sense of confidence was nowhere to be found in “Champion” and it is encouraging to see what true growth in Jesus Christ looks like.

  3. One of the best Christian albums in a longtime. I actually bought it thinking it was going to be like his Jesus, Fashion, and Beats mixtape. So when I first listened it was not what I expected and I was alittle disappointed. But after I kept listening to it, man so of these songs are just GEMS. I mean super catchy hooks, great production, and just a wide range of music! From Hip Hop, R&B, Pop, Dance…..can’t believe he was able to put all this in one album and make it work. This album is a classic and will be played for years….glorifying the name of God and showing that followers of Christ can have good music too! Thank you Jordan for this album homie! You killed it!
