AllMusic Review by

The Ascension, the fifth studio album from California-born alternative Christian music artist Phil Wickham, sticks to the Coldplay/Radiohead/U2-derived Brit-pop style of his previous outings, but it's focused more in a praise & worship direction, which makes it sort of a concept album, drawing its inspiration from Psalms 120 to 134, the so-called Psalms of Ascents, songs sung by travelers embarking on religious pilgrimages.
