On Hope For Love, Virginia-based Brightwork blends the melodic sweetness of MercyMe with the rock guitar aggression of Skillet in the service of a redemptive Christian message. If lead singer Caleb Carpenter and his band mates stress the positive in these songs, there’s enough acknowledgement of spiritual struggle to give tunes like “Let Me Love You,” “Valley” and “Now Or Never” an urgent edge. A ringing idealism lights up “Difference,” while “Heart Shaped Hole” captures a yearning to truly know God. Hope For Love radiates a sincerity that makes its anthemic choruses feel like personal confessions of doubt and faith.
