2021 Year-End



Scaled and Icy

Twenty One Pilots

The sixth album from Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, better known as Twenty One Pilots, once again offers a cryptic-but-redemptive take on life’s struggles.


Justin Bieber

Bieber lost his grandfather unexpectedly in early 2021. And he’s still trying to make sense of that loss here as he reckons with the finality of death.

"Surviving the Game"


This single from Skillet raises a fist against the spiritual forces that oppress us: “I was born to be demon defiant, and I won’t let this kingdom fall.”

"Your Power"

Billie Eilish

For older teens, we feel like Eilish’s lyrics and the unhealthy relational realizations she makes here could offer help teens recognize when a relationship turns toxic.

"To the Guys That Date My Girls"

Thomas Rhett

Rhett's “encouraging” any guy brave enough to pursue a relationship with his girls to realize their dad has some high expectations.
