Editorial Reviews

Self-described as "just a girl with a guitar," Knapp, the winner of the 1999 Dove Award for best new artist of the year, crafts acoustic folk-rock in the vein of Lilith Fair rock-maids, yet founds her lyrics on her relationship with God rather than on that of a beau. Kansas basks in both the relative youth of Knapp as a woman and as a Christian, featuring her smartly communicative songwriting, which examines matters of spirit and faith in an era dominated by pop culture. Rather than railing against the inevitable, Knapp has wisely chosen to embrace this seeming dichotomy with the back to back "Undo Me" and "Trinity"; the former, an infectious rock anthem and 1999's Dove rock song of the year, the latter a harmonically layered scripture-based examination of the Holy Spirit. Blessed with an agile, earthy contralto that reaches from matter-of-fact talkiness to power yowl to melodious balladic lilt, coupled with her taut and circular guitar lines and inspired string arrangements, Knapp's Kansas is a testament to her well-used talents. --Paige La Grone

The lyrics constantly remind me of God's forgiveness and love for us.
Pookie
Jennifer Knapp has an amazing voice, and the songs are great for listening, but what makes this CD so special is the lyrics and how powerful they are.
Marian
Jennifer Knapp is, and her music is about her experience as a Christian.

This is without a doubt my favorite Contemporary Christian CD. Jennifer's lyrics are full of passion and deep thoughts and feelings--it's not at all fluffy and shallow. Almost every song on this CD deals with how all people are needy, and broken, and searching for healing and wholeness. If you are going through a time of struggling to do the right thing, or are having a hard time believing that God has enough grace to love imperfect people (like you and me)--the lyrics in this CD will revive your soul. And musically, this CD is also top-notch. When I play it in the car with people who aren't Christian, I don't get the groans of disappointment I get when playing other Christian artists. When listening to her CD, people have asked if it was Sarah McLachlan, Alanis Morissette, or Cheryl Crow. And in a world where Christian music is generally thought of (and many times rightly so) as being second to secular music, with "Kansas" Jennifer Knapp breaks those stereotypes.

This is quality artistry. Most of the songs are pretty simple, but they avoid pop-infection or tired arrangements, and Jennifer Knapp's husky, hearty contralto is a nice change from the sweet, smooth and dominantly alto/soprano vocals from almost all Christian female vocalists. This is clearly a departure from the norm, and a great one.
What I really like about this record is Jennifer Knapp's subtle redefinition of what a Christian woman is. I listened to this record multiple times before it occurred to me that there's no mention of relationships, or romance, or hardly even men at all on the entire record. ("I've never been much for the bearing of souls in the presence of any man" is about it -- and illustrates the point I'll get around to making, eventually.) What's more, there's nothing "girly" about these songs. I am a guy who plays guitar, and I can cover them without the slightest embarrassment. And I bet as many guys buy this album as girls do. Jennifer Knapp is a woman who defines herself, in relationship to her God, not in relationship to the men around her. This is a rare thing, and a beautiful thing. As such she is a role model for girls in a new way, and in my opinion a healthier better way. From her music, she appears to be a strong woman, strong in her relationship with God, and weak before him. I admire her for this, and am grateful for her boundary-breaking music.

After having this cd for almost two years, it is still my absolute favorite. Jen has a way of writing songs that's so refreshing. If you get this cd, you will definitely NOT regret it. There is not a "bad" or "bum" song on this cd. My favorite song is #7 "Martyrs and Thieves". The most awesome line in there goes "Could it be that my worth should depend by the crimson stained grace on a hand?" WOW. And just as I saw in another review, this is most definitely "a girl with a guitar", and she's amazing on it. It's awesome. This is a GREAT buy!

Before me, 96 people have ranted and raved about this CD, almost unanimously decorating it with a full five stars...so I did something uncharacteristic of me and bought it without ever having heard a single note off of this or either of her albums (I believe there are only two).
I've listened to it a total of three times now, and I must say that I'm very happy with my purchase. Although I find it hard to believe that out of 96 previous reviews, nobody shared my first impression of who she sounds like. One reviewer mentioned that in various tracks, she sounds like Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell, Fiona Apple, and Sarah McLachlan, which I don't disagree with--but after listening to about 15 seconds of track #2, the first thing that came to mind was "Hey...that sounds *just* like Natalie Merchant!" (of 10,000 Maniacs fame); and the more I listen to Jennifer Knapp, the more I think "Natalie Merchant sings for Jesus." :-)
If you like Natalie Merchant, you will definitely like _Kansas_, and if you are partial to any of the aforementioned artists, you'll find Jennifer Knapp very easy to listen to--a sound that is soothing and familiar yet lyrically unique. If Sarah, Natalie, Joni, or Tracy were to sing for Jesus, this is exactly how I'd imagine them to sound.

I could not believe I was hearing music & lyrics of a 19yr old.She's a brilliant artist on the rise w/a clearly beautiful soul. Her longing in her lyrics for renewal and closeness w/God helped 2 vocalize feelings of my own as a new Christian. In her lyrics I am humbled and at the same time raised. The album has a great blend of soulful listening, ballads with a touch of harder music for longer listening. She's definitely gained a fan for life as well as my respect. As poet myself she has managed to write things that make me say "Darn, that's good, I wish I'd thought of that", but I'm at least glad she did. Jennifer Knapp thank you, you are blessed by God and using your talent to praise His name and bringing the younger generation to know Him.I have to say though that this album is not just for Christians but for anyone wanting to know more about what a relationship with Him can be like and needing that one connection to make it happen. I can almost gaurentee if you do not become a believer you will at least like and respect this young artist.She's sort of a combination between Melissa Etheredge & Allanis.
