Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Television viewers know her as The West Wing's opinionated deputy press secretary Annabeth Schott, while Broadway aficionados are familiar with her Tony-winning work in Wicked and the revival of You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, as well as the successful 2001 American Songbook anthology, Let Yourself Go. But on this eclectic collection of traditional and contemporary gospel anthems and related songs, songstress Kristen Chenoweth claims a bold return to her spiritual roots. Her chameleonic, crystalline soprano lights up the beloved title track standard and the Gaither's modern inspirationals "Because He Lives" and "Upon This Rock" with a deft, Broadway-bred sense of drama. Yet her voice remains supple enough to impart country charms to "It Will Be Me," "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" and Amy Lee Grant's "There Will Never Be Another." One-woman pop songwriting empire Diane Warren offer Chenoweth a typically melodramatic showcase on the spiritually generic "Borrowed Angels," while the unfortunate "Joyful, Joyful" once again proves Ludwig van still doesn't need any lyrical help with "Ode to Joy," thank you. The album's bonus cut, "Taylor, the Latte Boy," closes out the album on an upbeat note of playful, romantic innocence. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD April 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Kristin Chenoweth when she won the Tony for her roll as Sally in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." I quickly became a fan, so when I found out about this CD, I had to get it.

Taking a different path from her Broadway first CD, this CD focuses on songs of faith, reflecting Kristin's Christian beliefs. While some of her Broadway fans might not like that, I loved it.

The CD includes some classics, like "Because He Lives," "Joyful, Joyful," "Power" and "Just As I Am." Yes, these songs and hymns are familiar, but they're wonderfully handled here.

I was especially pleased to see covers of some of my favorite lesser known songs. "There Will Never be Another" is originally from Amy Grant's second CD. "Upon This Rock" first appeared on a Sandi Patty live CD. Both are wonderfully covered here. Of a more recent and popular note, she also covers Mercy Me's "Word of God Speak."

There were several songs I wasn't familiar with here. "It will be Me" is a great song on friendship. "Poor, Wayfaring Stranger" is an old spiritual, and I really liked it. "Abide in Me" appears to be a completely new song, and it's a great reminder of where our power really comes from, God.

The final track on here is "Taylor, the Latte Boy," another original song. It's a fun song about love at a coffee shop that fits Kristin's personality perfectly.

Some of her fans won't like the emphasis on her faith; I love it. This CD has already gotten lots of airplay since I got it, and I can see it getting lots more for a long time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album by a Broadway Diva! April 8, 2005
By Lou
Format:Audio CD
Tony Winning Kristin Chenoweth returned to the music world with her sophomore album "As I Am." This album is totally different from her debut album. "As I Am" is a collection of inspirational covors, and an original song written by Diane Warren. Kristin even includes one of her fan favorites "Taylor, The Latte Boy", which shows off her Musical Theater talents.

For those posting reviews saying they are disapointed in this album being inspirtional themed with a country feel - there is absolutely no exuse. Kristin made it very clear for a while now she would be doing an inspirational album with a country feel.

Kristin shows off her versatile talents on this wonderful album. The mood of the album is very uplifting. Kristin even gets to show off her opera talents on "Joyful, Joyful", and "Upon this Rock", which are incredible songs.

Overall, this is an incredible album. Kristin shows off her amazing voice on many tracks. I reccomend this album to everyone, even if you're not a fan of Christian music.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's done it HER way! April 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It saddens me to read some of these reviews. Some of you feel that Kristin has "let you down" because she has done a CD of inspirational songs and that she is becoming a conformist. God forbid anyone proclaim that they're a Christian these days! You feel this CD is not the "real" Kristin and she needs to go back to jazzy Broadway standards. It doesn't showcase her talent properly...blah, blah, blah...

On the contrary, I think this IS the real Kristin and this CD shows just how versatile she and her magnificent voice can be. If you've ever heard Sandi Patti sing "Upon This Rock," you know she has an incredible range. I, for one, didn't think there was anyone else who could sing that song, but not only does Kristin pay wonderful homage to Patti, she one-ups her by taking the song even higher at the end.

Yes, musicians make albums for their fans, but their albums are ultimately a reflection of themselves. I think this album is an incredible reflection of the beautiful person that Kristin is, both inside and out. And for those of you who won't buy this album because of the "Jesus" songs, it's your choice, but you'll be missing out on a terrific album.

3.0 out of 5 stars I love Chenoweth, but this album.... September 1, 2005
By A. ries
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay, 5 stars for talent, 1 star for music selection. And that one star is only because of "Taylor, the Latte Boy," which is a lot of fun. I respect the fact that Kristin chose to express her faith through music, but of all the music to pick, why this selection? It's dull, it certainly doesn't showcase her amazing voice, and many of the songs sound very similar to one another. I'm a huge fan of Chenoweth...I think I own almost every CD she's ever been in, and I saw WICKED just because of her. (Although I have to say that Menzel rocks, too!) I loved "Let Yourself Go," which has become a listening staple in my car, and I was so excited when she released this. The only song I really LOVE to listen to is the last track, "Taylor, the Latte Boy." I can't wait for her next album....as long as it has a little more "Kristin Pizzazz!!" :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Chenoweth Brings More than Herself in "As I Am" May 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: Upon This Rock, Borrowed Angels, The Song Remembers When

For artists to cross pollinate into other musical genres is not a recent provenance. Pop superstar Whitney Houston has had cut a gospel soundtrack with "The Preacher's Wife" and American Idol winner Rueben Studdard has just professed his faith on his sophomore offering "I Need an Angel." Hence, it is of no surprise for cabaret singer Kristin Chenoweth to grace us with an inspirational themed CD. Not only is this a contemporary Christian record, but it is by far one of the most elucidating and effable efforts in years. What sets "As I Am" apart are the distinct readings Chenoweth and producer Christopher Harris had given to these paeans. Rather than allow a genre to package the sonic output of the songs, Harris has allowed the songs to define the musical intonations. Hence, you will find power ballads in the Celine Dion league ("Borrowed Angels") side by side with the more acoustic-country sounding ("Poor Wayfaring Stranger") to an all-out gospel clamor ("Upon This Rock"). In short, this album's pride of place resides in the fact that Harris has allowed these song to define themselves as any good recording producer ought to do. Also, thumbs are up with regards to the choice of songs selected: though Chenoweth has tackled some of the great hymns of the church (such as "Joyful, Joyful," "Because He Lives," the title track etc) some of the hidden gems of contemporary Christian music have been unearthed. This includes Sandi Patty's "Upon this Rock," Amy Grant's "There Will Never Be Another," Faith Hill's "It Will Be Me" and Michael W. Smith's "Word of God Speak".

I should have paid more attention to user reviews. This recording does nothing to showoff Ms. Chenoweth's talent. Background musicians dominate too much for my liking.

She's an extremely talented artist, and I enjoy Christian music, but I didn't enjoy her choice of songs as much as I thought I would.
