Bryan Duncan – Slow Revival – 1994

Slow Revival is the seventh album from Bryan Duncan. This one made it to #5 on the Billboard Top Contemporary Christian chart and had 3 #1 CCM chart hits. “Traces Of Heaven”, “Things Are Gonna Change”, and “United We Stand”. “Don’t Look Away” also made it to #3. 4 top 10 singles on one album is quite the achievement. It was also nominated in the Best Contemporary Album category at the 26th GMA Dove Awards but bizarrely lost out to Take 6. Having listened to both albums now I have no idea how the Dove’s came to that conclusion but whatever. Brian followed up the album with a tour and several people have written that this may have been his best tour.

  1. This is a good album. It’s not one of my favorites by Duncan, but it is very good. Your introductory sentence, however, was a little confusing. Were you saying this was his 7th album to make it to the top 5 on the chart? Or were you saying this was his 7th album, and it made it to # 5 on the chart? I think it was the latter. If that is the case, simply remove is from the first sentence, replace it with a comma, and then add a comma after Duncan. I’m appositive it will then have the meaning you originally intended, and yes that was a punctuation pun.
