Various – Twelve New Faces – 1989

This 1989 release from Myrrh/Word Records featured new, mainly unreleased artists. Quite frankly I was surprised this album was actually released by them as a lot of these songs have a very low JPM score (Jesus per minute). It is almost entirely New Wave/Pop but it does have a Zion song which does not fit on the album at all. Nothing against the song it just doesn’t fit on this sampler. You should honestly listen to this album as it has some real gold unreleased songs.
