Saturday Song — “Never Alone”

I don’t listen to a lot of contemporary Christian music, but there are a few artists that manage to rise above the sonic sameness that seems to afflict the genre.  “Never Alone” from Barlow Girl is a nice bit of bombast about the need for faith in the face of God’s silence. There’s a kind of 1980s metal quality to it: like something Lita Ford might have done in a duet with the singer from the Scorpions. And if you think that sounds awful, then you just don’t understand.
