Editorial Reviews

Since his 2006 debut, Christian music's beloved and twice honored Male Vocalist of the Year (2009 and 2010) Brandon Heath has an Emmy Award, been nominated for two Grammys, an American Music Award, and holds multiple GMA Dove Awards. Heath's soaring career includes three No.1 hits,"I'm Not Who I Was", "Wait and See" and 2009 GMA Dove-winning Song of the Year, "Give Me Your Eyes". Staying true to his signature autobiographical style, Brandon Heath's lyrics for his latest release Leaving Eden celebrates God's heart and the pure immensity of His love for us. Heath, and acclaimed co-writing partner/producer Jason Ingram, penned the record's first single "Your Love" as a testament to God's abounding love that never leaves us, gives purpose and lights our way.

The songs are great, and the sound on this album is very interesting, in a good way.

This is a great album... The music is very uplifting, the lyrics were great, and overall, I loved it.

His story is also my story, and I struggle with balancing faith and fear of failure.

Brandon Heath, GMA's two-time reigning Male Vocalist of the Year, returns with a new 11-song project Leaving Eden, on January 18, 2011. Heath teams again with acclaimed co-writing partner Jason Ingram on four new songs including the hit single, "Your Love." It was the first song written for the new album following Heath and Ingram's previous No.1 radio hit collaboration, "Give Me Your Eyes." Thematically, the project's opener and title track speaks to a new awareness in Heath's life that the problems of the world exist in part because of the knowledge of good and evil. However, even amidst innocence being slowly chipped away, Heath believes the world can be changed, even if it's just one decision at a time. "The album starts with the title track `Leaving Eden' stating the obvious pain in the world by just reading the headlines, but turns towards reconciliation despite the hate and frightening things that happen in life," Heath explains. "I want to celebrate the goodness in the world, and that's what the rest of the songs on the project talk about. I feel like I have a choice to protect what little innocence is still left in my life, because I think that's what attaches me to God. It doesn't mean other things can't be healed, but why do I have to feel like I'm completely ruined, when I'm not?"

"Leaving Eden" is an incredible song and from the first listen I was hooked by the challenging message including "a teacher is hiding her Bible, but at least she has a job and my local Salvation Army just got robbed" and the very catchy melody. The main premise of the album is "there is no place like home." "Your Love" is the first single and has "song of the year" written all over it.

There is a reason why Brandon Heath is my favorite single musical artist. Leaving Eden is his third full length album (11 tracks, 43 minutes total), and I am happy to say that it is as good...if not better than the first two. The lyrical mastery that Brandon is gifted with comes through majestically. This will be an album I listen to for years and years to come. Thanks Brandon!

I purchased this CD along with eight others that I had been waiting months to buy. I eagerly tore the shrink wrap off of them all, popped them in, and have been eagerly listening for the last couple of weeks. I can honestly say that "Leaving Eden" is my favorite one of all (and that includes comparisons to some giants in the Christian Music industry). The backgrounds and rhythms that Brandon comes up with make his music fresh and enjoyable. And the messages ain't bad either. This is a great compilation of songs, and you'll enjoy it.

Brandon Heath has always been adept at creating catchy, talented melodies while retaining a mellow Christian flair with his music. His latest release, "Leaving Eden", is no exception. Through eleven upbeat tracks, Brandon once again delivers an impressive contemporary Christian experience, though the end result may not be quite so memorable as his previous release, "What If We".

The title track opens up the record--an anthem-style effort that, while occasionally indulging in cheesy songwriting ("Old lady next door / Forgot her own name), remains solid in the end. Radio hit "Your Love" exposes listeners to Brandon's love of the Lord and passion for simple, honest songwriting.

With this release, Brandon has for the most part opted out of the acoustic ballads which graced his previous records, in favor of a more contemporary, pop-influenced style filled with heavy drum-and-clap beats. You'll even hear a little autotune here and there, but rest assured that the artist's new approach hasn't gone to his head. Though most of the tracks, including a heartfelt tune entitled "The Light in Me", are upbeat and modern in their composition, others such as "Only Water" bring back memories of Brandon's past ballads.

"It's Alright" actually made me cry, and there aren't too many songs out there that can do that to me. It's one of Brandon's more beautiful and emotional efforts, filled with a heartfelt message based on Christ's calming of the storm on the sea. From there we're led into "It's No Good to Be Alone", a fun track with an open and inviting theme. The album closes with "As Long As I'm Here", a quieter sort of track that asks how well we will have loved at the end of our lives, when we pass from mortality into eternity.
