Brandon Heath's "Don't Get Comfortable" is a bubbly mix of positive music. Many tracks are overtly Christian. The opener "Steady Now" is one of the best tracks with catchy hooks and Brandon's boy-band friendly vocals, "We don't have to wait until the end of the night just to say that something's wrong & maybe nobody's right; We're all victims in a battle we never had to fight." The other shining star is the title track with its driving beat and Brandon's convincing vocals, "You don't have to be afraid even if you make mistakes; You know that I'll remain." Other tracks like the closer "I Will Lay You Down" & "You Decide" are also good. Most of this CD is excellent, well worth seeking out. Enjoy!

Wow!

That is the one word that explains this album. He has amazing, insightful lyrics and accomplishes what most artists of today can't.....accountability and raw emotion. I heard one song of Brandon's and fell in love with the whole album shortly after buying it. You will not be wasting your money if you buy this album. Give him a listen. All this album will do is Bless YOU in return. God Bless <>< A+++++

Here is a listing of my favorite songs in order of my faves:

1)I'M NOT WHO I WAS~ This track is my favorite because it is an anthem song for my life~~! I love the part where he says, " I write about love and such, maybe 'cuz I want it so much.

2)LET'S MAKE IT LAST ~ AMAZING!!!! I want this love song to be played at my wedding! So heartfelt it makes me wanna marry Brandon~ He knows what he is talking about. ; )

3)DON'T GET COMFORTABLE ~ This track has a great beat and just simply states not to get comfortable in one place because God wants us to EXPERIENCE the beauty of life, love, and Grace.

4)STEADY NOW ~ This is a great song. The Beat is super mellow and catchy! You will find yourself getting lost in his melodies.

5)THE LIGHT~ This song speaks from the heart to the heart! This is a song of redemption and faithfulness~ BEAUTIFUL

6) BEAUTY DIVINE~ Yet another BEAUTIFUL song~ This one is for the end of the day~ can easily be used during prayer time or journal time

7)I WILL LAY YOU DOWN~ This one is very upbeat and speaks alot of truth! God will always give us rest!

8)YOU DECIDE~ I LOVE IT!!! Just talks about how we are all different

9)RED SKY ~ This one is just good

10) SIMPLE MAN~ just good!

11) OUR GOD REIGNS~ This is a great worship song! One of Brandon's favorites to perform at church concerts~

I just bought Brandon Heath's "Don't Get Comfortable" after hearing "Not Who I Was" on the radio. He has an excellent voice and several of his songs are stirringly insightful. "Our God Reigns" is an excellent worship song. This guy just might be the next Jeremy Camp (minus the biceps) :) I give it four stars instead of five because, personally, I prefer a harder rock sound. But that, obviously, isn't what he was out to give on this album. For this genre, it really is an excellent album.

I'll admit I had to give this CD time to grow on me. My first impressions weren't that great, and I set it aside for a month or two. But I pulled it out again and have really started enjoying it.

Brandon Heath is the latest in the pop/soft rock singer/songwriter genre. As such, he can tend to get lost in the crowd. And that was my problem originally. But there are some real gems here. There's the funky beat to "I'm Not Who I Was" and the quiet minor key of "Red Sky." And the quiet, melodious "The Light" just adds to the power of the song. While radio hit "Our God Reigns" has a full band sound, many of these songs are simply arranged. I'm not quite sure I'd call them acoustic, but it's very close.

There are some great lyrics here, too. "Steady Now" is about bridging gaps between people while "Simple Man" reminds us that God can use us despite our flaws. For pure worship, there's "Our God Reigns." I must admit I had to really listen to "Red Sky" to get it, but I love it now. It's a reminder that there is a better day coming. "I'm Not Who I Was" is a song about the lessons learned even from a bad relationship. The title track is a challenge to go out and live life outside our comfort zones. And "The Light" is a comforting reminder from God that He will heal us.

The only song on here I don't like is "Let's Make it Last." Written as a love song, it's just too slow. And I don't care for the second verse where they consider playing hooky. But that's probably just me.

While this debut could be stronger, it shows plenty of promise. I'm looking forward to seeing where Brandon goes from here.

Wow, what can I say, its really awesome. I honestly just picked this up without any previous exposure to Brandon, I was pleasantly surprised, he reminds me of a cross between Goo goo dolls and the Backstreet Boys. Its very laid back, certainly beach worthy. Do try it, its awesome, plain awesome.

Initially purchased this CD for one song, "I'm Not Who I Was", Track 7. Tracks 8 is delightful. Track 9 is such a vigorous praise and worship song, it will get you singing and praising! The entire CD was an unexpected surprise. Shared it with my boss and both she AND her 11 year-old daughter LOVE IT!

For a beginnier he has the ability weave God and love into all the stories. My favorite is "I'm not who I was" and "Make it last." The CD has the markings of both Dave Barnes and Dave Matthews. A enjoyable CD to listen to on a road trip.

I'm probably a little biased, but I have all of his cd's now. Along with JCamp and MWest these guys consistently put out some nice worship music. Give em' a spin.
