Album Review: "Robert Pierre EP" by Robert Pierre

Genre: Adult Contemporary/Pop
Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

For those of you who have not heard of him, Robert Pierre is a young, eighteen-year-old contemporary music artist from Orlando, Florida. He toured in the Winter Jam 2010, and his new album will be released later this year. I had the pleasure of listening to his full EP, simply titled Robert Pierre EP, right now for free. The EP contains three songs from his full album Identity as well as a new song that will be featured on the album soon to be released on July 26. At the end of this review, I'll let you know how to listen to the EP for free and download all the songs as well.

The EP begins with the upbeat song "Jesus." It sends the great message that no matter how terrible our troubles are or whatever it is we are going through, God is always there to help us. Robert sings in the chorus, "Any desperate day, one word I can pray. All I know to say-Jesus." With good lyrics and a great tune, this song provides for a nice listen.

"You Hold Me Now" is the only song on the EP not featured on an earlier album. It speaks about the Day of the Lord. Robert creates a picture of how it will be like to finally be in heaven with Jesus our Lord. He mentions wars ceased, streets made of gold, and suffering and pain finally gone. One of my
favorite lines from the song comes in the second verse where he sings, "In this life I will stand through my joy and my pain, knowing there's a greater day. There's a hope that never fails." That line seems so filled with hope for the future and is really encouraging to the listener.

I had trouble trying to understand exactly what Robert was trying to relay to the listener in "Breaking My Heart," but I believe he is talking about giving up his life for Christ and letting God use him for whatever is in His great plan. The final song "Identity" is definitely my favorite from the EP. Robert sings about two people-a guy and a girl-who are different than the people around them. Their friends, of course, are confused by their actions, but as the chorus states, "That's who I am...It doesn't matter what the world may think of me...I know my identity." "Identity" displays two people whom we as Christians should be acting the same as.

In conclusion, Robert Pierre chooses good topics to sing about in his songs which are both encouraging and inspiring. The only downside of the album is that the lyrics seemed to be just a little too simple, but the message in the lyrics makes up for some of that. Robert Pierre is an artist who's music all Christian Contemporary fans should check out and will be happy they did.
