What Pleases You

Album Review

“The follow up to his self-titled debut, Chuck Gibson's 2014 release What Pleases You advances into sonic and lyrical territory that is at once soaring and intimate. Layered guitar and ambient textures predominate on the passionate worship-rock anthems "Forevermore" and "Holy," balanced by more celebratory tracks like "Alive" and the pop-infused "God Is With Us." Gibson's heartfelt lyrics, firmly rooted in grace, shine on the beautifully shaped acoustic ballad and title track "What Pleases You," which, along with a hauntingly triumphant cover of "All Creatures of Our God and King" rounds out a dynamic sophomore release that is equal parts explosive and introspective, and all parts worshipful.”
