Nothing Stands Between Us 4:56 - -- - -- John Mark McMillan is something of an anomaly: an artist and Platinum-selling songwriter bending genres and defying categorization by carving out his own unique and independent path. With an ear for melody and a poet’s eye for metaphor, no topic has been off-limits. While each of his albums over the past decade have continued to explore new territory, it’s McMillan’s ability to give lyric and language to the human experience that many consider his greatest gift. "Mercury & Lightning" reminds us why we love great songwriters; The exceptional ones find a way to put new words to private musings and desperate feelings until the songs themselves begin to live in our bones. - -- The vibe and tone from each song on Mercury & Lightning will mesmerize, but it’s McMillan’s voice that draws you in and makes you feel as though you’ve entered a conversation you want to stick around for. Recorded just outside of Portland, OR at Feng Sway Studios over 18 months with close friend Gabriel Wilson and longtime bandmate Jesse Proctor, this is the kind of record that your kid usually discovers before you do - something progressive yet accessible. Borrowing from their childhood influences, they bring elements of 80’s rock and 90’s R&B together, somehow making the record feel both modern and unexpected. - (Source: Artist PR) -- UPC 752830894525 -- The Amazon ASIN for the mp3 version of this CD is B07443V3DJ -- Another listing by Zip

The vivid imagery in the lyrics we've come to expect from JMM is there, along with a stronger emphasis on textures and sound that ever before, in my opinion. I can tell each musical part was truly deliberately crafted to add some special texture to the whole.
Lyrically and topically, the songs really do resonate with me, ranging from wrestling with the concept of God, to pondering the validity of the measure of success, to contemplating the cause and effect of hurtful dialogue and it's self-fueling nature. There's not much more to say, except thank you to John Mark and his crew.
