Review by Joe Bragg

The difference between a good album and a great album, is that a great album gets better with each listen. 
This. Is. A. Great. Album.

 Ascension: The Creative Power of the Imagination is chalk full of relevant & engaging anthems that speak volumes given the current climate of our world. Xero deals with topics such as depression, apathy and addiction woven together with God's redemptive plan through Christ Jesus. Ascension plays more as a social commentary & personal expedition than anything else.
Tracks like Cutter, Damsel & Zombie get down to the nitty gritty of life, they meet us where we are at or where someone close to us is. Ascension is raw & as a result real, you will be hard pressed to not want to immerse yourself in the eclectic musical soundscape Xero has created. Ascension is not only a collection of songs, it is a challenge to evaluate your life, asses your direction, and make a decision as the album concludes with a most profound & important question "where do we stand?" It seems the answer to this question from Xero's perspective is a matter of life and death as the song is laced with a sense of urgency and a desire for humanity to re-calibrate its present mindset.
The more you listen to Ascension the more you catch the subtle nuances and passion that Xero has for people, and for them to know that Truth and walk in the newness of life that is only found in Jesus Christ. My challenge to you the listener is to not simply listen to the songs but to interact with them, wrestle through the content and then sit back and enjoy the experience that is Ascension: The Creative Power of the Imagination.
