Editorial Reviews

Grammy nominated Jennifer Knapp returns from a seven year hiatus with a new album, Letting Go (Graylin Records/Thirty Tigers) on May 11th, 2010. Recorded in Nashville, Letting Go was produced by Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Martha Wainwright, Amy Grant) and features ten folk-rock songs showcasing her astonishing straightforwardness and honesty. Knapp s impressive history includes selling over one million albums with her previous releases, Kansas (debut 1998), Lay It Down (2000), and The Way I Am (2001). The Kansas-born musician toured the globe with artists such as Jars of Clay and was featured on 1999 s Lillith Fair Tour. Jennifer scored a Grammy nod in 2002 along with other awards and nominations. With a considerable fan base, critical and commercial successes, Knapp walked away from it all at the height of her career. After seven years of soul searching and time spent in Australia, Knapp comes full circle in 2010 with a new album, new tour, and a renewed love of music. This spring she will preview her new music on a co-headline tour with Derek Webb, kicking off on March 5th in New York City. She will play on the revamped Lilith Fair tour, the first one in 10 years. Since Jennifer played on the last one in 99, being asked to play the re-launch is very special, a reminder of why Jennifer came back to her musical roots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Letting go indeed July 18, 2011
By Angiego
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Jennifer Knapp for many, many years now and even to this day I can listen to every single song on every one of her CD's and gain something from it. I never tire of her music and it's gotten me through many hard times in my life. I've always appreciated her music for the simple fact that she's real- she's not pushing God down your throat or talking about how perfect she is- she addresses real life issues and pretty much lays it out that she's not perfect but willing to seek God and his forgiveness. I too wasn't sure what to expect from this album since her coming out, but from the moment I pushed play I haven't been able to turn it off or get the songs out of my head. As always, she delivers heartfelt emotions in her music that screams real, raw and uninhibited. I'm personally happy for Jennifer that she is able to free herself of the chains that have bound her for the last 7 years as she was in hiding. As a fellow Christian, I have nothing but love for her and pray that she is content and happy with the choices she makes- whether they are right or wrong is between her and God and that's the perception I have towards my other gay and lesbian friends. I will always have a place in my heart for Jennifer as being my favorite artist of all time for the sheer fact that her music touches my soul like no other artist has ever done. As for the other reviewers who feel like her music is a stark contrast to her previous stuff, well, you have to remember she's in a different place and these are the issues she's dealing with. Music is her outlet and that's exactely what she's doing with this album- letting go of her walls, frustrations and pain. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey, it's just music -- really good music May 21, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Jennifer Knapp is a minstrel and a poet -- a musician. She's not a terrorist or some sort of destroyer of ideals. She is who she is. Like most of us, not perfect but trying to navigate this world using her gifts and talents to help and affect others -- and because it's what and who she is. I'm a Christian and I hold principles that can't be compromised or tainted and so sometimes, I can't agree with myself -- the choices I make that violate what I believe, but it doesn't negate the love I have for others or my ability to express beauty -- and to be made better as I grow and struggle. Be strong and secure in what you believe and try to stop depending on others' perfect adherence to what you believe, to make you feel OK. When you feel an 'insider' has failed you, look at yourself and remember the last time you also failed. Have compassion, but respond as you must.

It's music - high quality music. I'd rather be lifted by Jennifer's new music than by some of the darker, hard rock 'Christian' music that some of the church Youth Groups are allowed to listen to. She's not promoting sexual preference, even passively. I think she just felt she owed her fans an explanation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the same... October 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Jennifer's music and voice are just not the same as her other earlier albums, seems like something's missing. I have all of her earlier albums and am very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jennifer Knapp's Best Work Yet May 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's amazing what can happen when a person is freed from their chains and allowed to explore, write, and create beautiful music. That's what's happened with Letting Go.

There is a power in Jennifer Knapp's voice I've not heard until now, and each song seems to be filled with raw, refreshing honesty. Her use of a simpler, more acoustic sound only adds to that feeling. My favorites include Fallen (which is just one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard), Mr. Gray, and Stone to the River.

At just under 35 minutes in total length, it is a short CD, but it is well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop you in your tracks powerful May 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I picked this CD up at the library and was immediately carried away by the power of the music, the depth of the lyrics, the sheer beauty of this voice. There's something in these songs and the blow your hair back strength of this voice that brings to mind the great Ann Wilson of Heart. The voice is different yet similar.

I'm surprised by some of these reviewers who apparently discount this CD because it doesn't carry the same message of Christian spirituality they've apparently come to expect from her. I couldn't care less about this myself but some of these lyrics transcend spirituality for me and talk deeply of hurt and disappointment and things both worldly and beyond. An artist of this caliber needs to change and evolve, and in briefly listening to some earlier works I find through this music that Jennifer Knapp has found just the right wind to lift to a new place.

I hope she will cross boundaries and categories through music like this because a lot of people are waiting for this artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Album December 11, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I absolutely adore this album. Lyrically it has all the raw, honest emotion you'd expect from a Jennifer Knapp album. Musically it's incredibly solid. There are some several songs that find their way into your psyche and just won't let go. Stellar album.

By Andreas

Jennifer's songs grab you right from the start. Intelligent and emotional lyrics, catchy melodies, and an amazing vocal presence by Ms Knapp. I didn't know her music before, but now I am hooked. Expect great things from this artist...

You are incorrect to say she "departed the Judeo Christian beliefs." She emphatically declares she continues to be a Christian. That said, I agree with you that this particular release should not be targeted to the "Christian" market. It has depth, beauty, and grace --... Read More

Jennifer Knapp, Letting Go=Coming Out?
I think you are biblically correct, but I can't help but have compassion on a woman who loves God and wants to be a Christian yet feels that this is part of her makeup. How many heterosexuals struggle with sexual sins for years and many never get victory. Again I am not disagreeing with anything... Read More
