Where was The Goldilocks Enigma back in the covered wagon days? Christians sure could have benefited and been encouraged by their songs that challenge specific areas of growth and self-examination. OK, so they weren’t around back a number of years ago. But they are now, and oh how you sense God speaking through their music and lyrics…with twist. Songs like “Lies For Miles” not only has their almost trademark of doing something new and different with their talented, it encourages and challenges both at the same time to keep your eyes open for false prophets while consolidating your faith. And you’ll love to hum along with the upbeat and harmony-filled “Come Out”.
“Now what?” is definitely different than what might be called “traditional” Christian pop or rock albums, and the differences can mostly be found in the lyrics, which yes, are full of praise and worship, but The Goldilocks Enigma always have a question mark placed somewhere in their songs.
Their beef is obviously not with faith or Jesus, but directly with mankind and his odd behavioral patterns. So there are always warning signs in their songs to be on the alert and not to just blindly conform while finding our way out of the dark. They hit up this theme rather directly on “Church Of Walls”, one of my favorite songs.
You won’t find any fluff or sweet filler songs here as The Goldilocks Enigma move between varying acoustic-driven arrangements, featuring male and female lead vocals, as well as upbeat and slower songs. They run the entire gamut of emotions, while always infusing their songs with thought provoking lyrics.
And if it’s true that the message is the most important thing in a Christian music album then you will find many messages here. Probably more than you think, and definitely more than you bargained for. Every song is a good one, with poignant, piercing, fierce lyrics and compelling music to match.
With lyrics that could make many a Christian squirm in their comfortable lives, The Goldilocks Enigma will challenge you to step up to the plate and be the example that He expects you to be, not what the rest of us expects you to be.
The lyrical and musical talent of this husband and wife musical team is surpassed only by their devotion to the ministry of spreading His Word. For those who want to hear words of uplifting encouragement, hope and grace, you’ll find that too, as you will, plenty of melody, harmony and musical variation.
The Goldilocks Enigma knows how to cut straight to the core and shake your soul awake. Add that to music that gets stuck in your head and you have been given a gift of worship at any time you play the music.
