Nichole Nordeman is one of the darlings of the Christian pop music scene. Her sophmore album, Mystery garnered her the 2001 Dove award for best female vocalist. Her next relase was Live at the Door a collection of eight tracks recorded in Houston - this is the album that I fell in love with.

Live at the Door

I first slipped the disk into my car stereo on a rainy night last fall, it'd been loaned to me: "You'll like her voice, it's in your range." I was instantly captivated by the sound which reminds me of secular Shelia Nichols: wordy lyrics, big, heavy mezzo-soprano voice over sparse, instrumental piano - but Nordeman succeeds where Nichols so often failed, the music is beautiful and interesting but never repititious. Immediately I want to sing along, but I can't because I get caught up in the words:

No more camping on the porch of indecision

No more sleeping under stars of apathy

And it might be easier to dream

But dreamin's not for me

Nordeman sings with incredible confidance, making use of a big voice that can only described as strong, crescendoing in tandem with the accordion, "'Cause sometimes I still question, too /How easily we come to You.". Most Christian contemporary and praise music can be described as a simple repitition of "hallelujahs" and "praise the Lords" but To Know You weaves a narrative that pulls together the modern struggle for faith with the biblical stories:

[Nicodemus] struggled with the image

Of a grown man born again

We might have been good friends

Cuz sometimes I still question, too

How easily we come to You

Much of Nordeman's music is about the struggle with faith.

I think Nichole Nordeman is an extremely talented singer/songwriter. She's released some great music over the years, starting with her 1998 debut. This album certainly doesn't qualify as even a good album though.

If the singing on the album was great for the entire album, than the fact that it's only 8 songs could be overlooked. The problem is that the singing on several songs is absolutely embarrisingly bad. Case in point: Is It Any Wonder. She tries vocal acrobatics which sound like "Star Search" gone real bad.

That's not to say that the whole album is poorly sung and executed. About half the album is good--Time after Time is good, as is I Am. But half the album is only 4 songs.

Another problem with the album is that it's extremely impersonal. All interaction with the audience was cut out. You barely even know there's an audience there. Which isn't necesarrily the best thing for a *live* album. It would be real nice to have had some song intriductions from Nichole. Explanations of reasons why things were written one way or another. Thoughts on life. Since this *was* a live concert, there was more to it than just the songs.

The album was produced by Brad O'Donnell, husband of Erin O'Donnell. He's done some good work in the past for Erin, and maybe he's not to blame for the failure of half of this album, but it's unfortunate for him that his name is attatched to this album.

I think it's ridiculous that they released an 8 song live CD. They could have released a full 14-16 song album for litterally, almost no more expense to them.

Save your money for a full length studio album from Nichole. This is can hardly be called a good investment, which is dissapointing from such a great artist.

When I first slipped Nichole Nordeman's Live At The Door into my CD player, I wasn't instantly excited. Nichole Nordeman's music is always great, but I didn't find this to attract my attention.

However, I soon found the worshipful and quiet disc to be great for my quite times with God. While penning something in my God-Journal, I can easily sing along to "Holy" or say my prayer of "To Know You"

The albums begins with "To Know You". It sounds quite similar to the studio version, but not so eerie. The studio version of "Holy" (On Woven & Spun) is a praise-like anthem, but on Live At The Door it is more worshipful-easily a highlight. Another great song comes next-the jazz-inspired "Is It Any Wonder". I love the original (Featured on her 1998 debut Wide Eyed) but the difference in their live version is that it has more "carnival noises"- very cool-but sometimes the vocals aren't as good as the original. The studio version of "I am" is my favorite song in the whole world, but I definitly wouldn't have made a live version-it isn't as good as the original. Instead, I might have done "To say Thanks" or "River God" instead.

Nichole Nordeman's albums all-except for her debut-have featured a remake. Here, Nichole Nordeman covers Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time". It's a good cover and it was a good idea to feature a cover on here. I think I like the live version of "Legacy" better than the original probably becuase I have heard the original a bit too much. "Fool for You" is better than the stduo version too-they have added some extra noises which changes it nicely. The album finishs very quickly with the nice-but proabbly not so good as the studio version-"My Offering".
