God Bless you Chris!
Rachel Cassady
The lyrics to his songs seem to cut away all the irrelevent things in life leaving only the drawing power of a God in love we US!

Great variety in musical styles throughout the CD, and solid Christian lyrics.

I bought this CD several months after it came out, and my only regret was that I didn't buy it sooner. Chris Rice has such a wonderful way with words and images it's hard not to fall in love with his music. And this CD is loaded with some of his best songs.
The project opens with the title song, a dream about Heaven. It's a fun little song that fills me with warm thoughts about eternity.
"Clumsy" and "Prone to Wander" deal with our human weaknesses while striving to be holy in a way I can relate to.
"Welcome to Our World" is arguably my favorite of Chris's songs from all three of his albums. The images he invokes remind me of the humanity of the Christmas story. I wasn't surprised when Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant covered this song on their most recent Christmas projects, but this original version remains my favorite. I hope when Chris records a Christmas album, he includes it again.
"Sam's Song," the only song Chris didn't write himself, is a wonderful prayer for more faith to trust God to guide us everyday.
The album closes with "I Need a Hero." This slow song is a cry to God to be the hero we need to save us from the bonds of sin.
These are my personal favorites from the disc; the other songs are great as well.
I will say that Chris has a definite style to his music. If you like him, you'll love him, but if the style isn't for you, you'll hate it. While I have to be in the right mood to listen to his CD's, I find that they are some of the best Christian music today.
I highly recommend this great CD.

I first heard Chris's "Deep Enough to Dream" song on the "WOW the 90's" CD. This song came to me at a difficult time in my life. I had just recently lost a very dear and young aunt to cancer. This song touched my soul in a way unlike any other I've ever heard. It helped me to grasp a deeper concept of heaven by knowing that my aunt Brenda was joining those billion people for the wedding feast and that she was at peace! I was able to "let her go." Chris's music helped heal my pain. I am so thankful that God has blessed him with this talent.
I received this CD for Christmas from my husband and I love every song! I am amazed every time I listen because I receive a new message from my Lord through each song. God Bless you Chris!
This is a must have....don't miss out on any blessings God may have for you by passing this one up!

In a world where every male solo Christian contemporary artist sounds like a clone of Michael W. Smith, Chris Rice breaks the mold, not so much in his sound (he actually kinda' sounds like Mr. Rocketown), but his songs on this effort are way better than Mike's have been since way back when he used to call his records "Projects." Peaceful, spiritual, meditative and reverent are how I would peg this cd, even with that one goofy song thrown in there. Chris is great at the piano and his voice is clear and full of worship. "Deep Enough To Dream" will be played on Christian radio stations just short of forever. "Hallelujah" and "Welcome To Our World" are both so sweet, melodic and touching that they are worth the price of admission all by themselves. This is pretty powerful stuff from an industry that tends to be very watered down and thinks good music means a sappy copy of the current secular trend (which is why I never go in for so called "Christian" music).
As an aside from all the praise, once you have heard this (his best) work, you have pretty much heard it all as his later cds tend to sound pretty much the same. Stick to this first effort and you will love Chris Rice. Listen to two or three of his works in a row and you may be calling him just another Christian artist who sounds kinda' like Michael W. Smith.
As an even further aside, he does have a cd not currently listed on Amazon called "The Living Room Sessions" (NOT the Christmas one) which is simply him playing traditional hymns with no lyrics on his piano in his living room. It is REALLY good. Track it down and be blessed!

Chris Rice's first CD is still my favorite, and they are ALL awesome, so that says something. He has a great, mellow, James Taylor-esque sound, plus some of the deepest and most honest lyrics in Christian music today. In trying to write songs myself and in listening to a lot of Christian music, I have found that it is difficult to write heartfelt Christian songs that are not cheesy...Chris Rice achieves this as well as anyone.

Rice never sugarcoats his faith, but addresses real issues like the frustration of messing up over and over again, feeling weak and helpless, and feeling burdened by pain and shame. Yet a loud note of grace rings throughout all of these struggles that he sings of.

My favorite songs on this album are "Deep Enough to Dream" (great guitar part; a hope-inspiring vision of heaven), "Welcome to Our World" (a beautiful Christmas song that reflects on the wonderful mystery of the incarnation...lines like "Tiny heart whose blood will save us"), "My Tree" (a song that infuenced me a lot as an often lovesick teenager...likens Christ's love for us to being in love as a young boy, yet he avoids cheapening Christ's love in the process), and "Hallelujahs" (which gives words and a melody to the often inexpressible feeling of being overwhelmed by God's majesty as expressed in His works on earth).

This CD gave me strength to get through my first year of college some years back, and I have used it as a gift to friends who are hurting many times. It also makes a good gift for non-Christians, since the message is expressed in such honest language, without being "in your face" or obtuse with the message. This is a fine, fine CD.
