We’re coming to the end of March, and it’s officially Easter time. So before we post any Easter themed blogs or reviews of Easter themed albums, it’s time for another instalment of the ‘Best of’ series. Last time we delved into our anticipated TV series and anticipated movies for 2018, and this time, we are going to reveal to you all which songs throughout the first 3 months of 2018 have impacted us greatly, made us jump up for joy in praise to Jesus, have tugged at our heart, and have encouraged us to tap our toes and just dance! So without further ado, here are 20 songs that are our most favourite of January-March 2018.

BEST OF 2017- PART 10: Top Ten Anticipated Albums/EP’s of 2018

Can you all believe it? It’s the 1st January 2018- well, it’s the 1st where I am in Australia, I’m sure other places around the world, it’s still the 31st December 2017. It’s been quite a while since we as a site have posted anything (not since mid December), but with busyness in work leading up to the Christmas season, we have since decided to take this time to rest a little. Now with this new post, I have looked forward to the year of 2018, and what it will bring. While 2017 had a lot of great albums released that we could celebrate, I have catalogued 10 album/EP releases that release between this year, that I have been excited about, and I’m sure you will be too. While this year has been quite possibly one of my favourite years when it comes to album releases, if these 10 album releases are as great as I reckon they could be, then next year will be one of the best years yet in Christian music!

Top 10 ___: (Christmas Albums: 2011-2016)

5 weeks to the day. That’s it. Exactly 35 days until Christmas Day 2016. Not long to go isn’t it? Pretty soon we’d all be thinking about buying presents for our friends and family, alongside getting into the Christmas spirit by listening to carols and original Christmas songs. Department stores in shopping centres will start playing Christmas songs (if they haven’t already) and sooner rather than later, we’d see the Christmas decorations and fake Christmas trees that’ll be around the main centre courts of the shopping malls we would frequent between now and December 25th. So what does that mean for our next top 10s post here at 365 Days of Inspiring Media? Our favourite Christmas albums over the last 5 years, that’s what! No seriously, there has been a lot of Christmas albums that have released and therefore choosing 10 albums can be difficult. But we have nevertheless narrowed them down, and have made difficult decisions. So without further ado, here are 10 Christmas albums below over the last few years that have been impactful for us (plus 5 albums that are honourable mentions that didn’t make the cut)!

Top 10 ___: Top 10 Artists Within the Last Few Years that are not American

The CCM community is humungous, and while I like my fair share of artists like MercyMe, Casting Crowns, TobyMac, Building 429 and the like, sometimes I like to put on an album of an artist that doesn’t come from America. Not that Americans don’t produce great CCM, quite the opposite. But rather I’ve realised that artists from Canada, Australia and even the U.K. seem to employ a broader sense of style, and music that is somewhat more ingenious and interesting to listen to compared to the endless sea of American CCM that floods the K-Love and Air 1 airwaves. Hopefully these 10 artists I’ve listed below will encourage you all to broaden the musical landscape of whatever Christian music you listen to. So what are my favourite 10 artists within the last few years that are not from America? Read on to find out.
