Format: Audio CD
Let us try not to gush: You wait a decade between albums like this one.

These thirteen tracks emerge either from Ms. Grant's experience or from the collective wisdom in song selection of her handlers. Either way, we are face to face with stunning music and a beautiful young woman in a world where one grows weary of finding such a correspondence.

This is no crossover romance-or-religion puffery, where the listener takes his pick of context. To the contrary, Grant sings from deep and unveiled biblical conviction.

When she sings on the album's first track, after all, 'Awaken my heart, awaken my soul, awaken your power and take control', she is not singing to the handsome guy across the room. She's crying out to recognizable and well-defined God.

Then she pops you in the face with the utter theological simplicity that follows the manic intro to 'Something Beautiful'. What say we begin with the mania?:

'This is a song for anyone whose ever been
knocked down ; can't get back again
Stuck in the corner, can't move forward
All alone and you think you're going nowhere
This is a song for anyone whose ever stood
underneath the sun and felt so small-
two feet tall and so out of place.'

After an intro like that with perhaps a few too many intimations of girly-pop, where does a song like this go? On to feel-good, self-absorbed truisms with a nice guitar riff for distraction?

No. Not this time.

Instead, this biblically-informed terseness:

'He sees you - he knows you - he loves you
and he wants you to know that'

That's all. In the biblical dialect of divine-human relationship, that is considered sufficient. Grant seems to agree. Refreshing, that. Strengthening too.

Every once in a great while a musical artist has come into my life and grabbed my intellect and emotions. In the past its been Judy Collins then Nanci Griffith and later Alison Krauss. One day I heard Natalie Grant's "Held" on Sirius radio's Spirit channel and was swept away. This has got to be one of the most beautiful recording ever made. I got the album "Awaken" the next day and there are songs on the album that are already among my all time favorites....especially "The Real Me" and "Home". This is a truly gifted artist who can phrase a lyric with incredible tenderness yet belt out with the best of them. I have not traditionally sought out Christian Music but Natalie Grant grabbed my heart and attitude toward Faith. I have a feeling that's just what she wanted to do....she is now on the above select list of artists that will forever move me....not
bad company at all.

I have persistently purchased CDs by Natalie Grant because it is hard to not acknowledge the God-gven talent she has been given; however, with every purchase, I felt mostly disappointment. There were maybe two or three songs that were enjoyable to listen to. Usually one song that I would put on repeat. This CD is a very different story. I can honestly say that this is one of the best CDs that I currently own. It is a refreshing new approach to displaying Natalie Grant's undeniable vocal talent, which is to sing great and memorable songs. I have also had trouble with shallow lyrics in her past albums; this CD is very deep and theologically sound. A few songs stand out: "The Real Me," "Held," and "Make me Over" are beautiful and touching. I would recommend this to just about anyone.

I was fed up with the secular junk on the radio and was determined to find some Christian music, though I had never bought any before and I didn't have any recommendations or anything to go by, except for the little song clips that amazon has. Since I wanted something to replace the radio, I wasn't looking for a hymn sing exactly. My main requirement was that it not sound like a church choir. Well most of the first cds that I clicked on had great song lists, they were hymns I was familiar with- then I heard the clips and it could have been our church choir singing. If I wanted that, I could just bring a little recorder with me on Sunday. no thanks. Then after a bunch more clicks, I heard some of Natalie's and ordered Awaken and Deeper Life. I was extremely joyful to receive them, I played both of them all week and they were so incredibly inspiring, encouraging my faith and inspiring me to grow closer to God and giving me strength to live for Him.

Awaken is an appropriate title for the latest recording from Natalie Grant. It reflects the change in her life and serves as a challenge to her audience. The catalyst for it all was an episode from her favorite TV program "Law and Order". In a dramatic way it showed the horrors of human trafficking-the trade of persons across borders or within a country for the most inhumane, involuntary servitude. What Natalie saw stirred her to not only do something but gave her a passion to live more fully-to extend her boundaries as a believer and an artist.

Her new passion comes through loud and clear on Awaken. Like a number of Christian artists of late, her music on this release takes on a harder edge. The opening chords of "Something Beautiful" immediately call to mind Switchfoot's smash single "Meant To Live". She moves further from big voice, adult contemporary music toward a more modern rock/pop sophistication. The singing, the musicianship, the production, and the artistry are all first-rate.

Many of the songs on Awaken are about living life to the fullest. About half of the songs are co-written by Natalie, just another indicator of how much she has come into her own on this recording. "Home" was written for the many young girls who are victims of sexual slavery. "You keep watching the rain come down/pretty princess, broken crown/and your dreams.../but don't you know they've brought you here somehow/All you need to know is you're home."

"The Real Me", written by Natalie, is a beautiful song about being vulnerable, abandoning our efforts to conceal who we are inside. "Held" is an affirmation of God's tender care during times of difficult, inexplicable losses.
