Editorial Reviews

A career-spanning collection from this acclaimed rock troubadour

Dubbed "a new troubadour," by Time magazine, Peter Himmelman has had a long and critically lauded solo career. Not only does he have 10 solo albums and three award-winning children’s albums to his credit, but he also is an Emmy-nominated television composer (Judging Amy).

Mission Of My Soul: The Best of Peter Himmelman is the first CD to collect the greatest songs from each of his acclaimed solo albums. It features such signature songs as the title track, plus "Woman With The Strength Of 10,000 Men," and "245 Days," alongside more recent offerings, such as the title track to his latest album, Imperfect World.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Aperitif for a Finer Meal April 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay. Here's the problem with Greatest Hits CD Compilations: they only contain an artist's greatest hits. Fortunately (or unfortunately), Peter Himmelman has not had a boatload of greatest hits - at least radio-wise. Instead, for the past few decades he has offered up songs that have touched the hearts, minds, and spirits of thousands of music lovers who have discovered his art outside of the corporate radio format. Several of those songs are included on this CD. But as good as they are, they're just a small representation. So consider this an aperitif. Something to whet your appetite for a larger and more glorious meal. From the rollicking and life-affirming "Beneath the Damage and the Dust", to the beautifully plaintive 'Shiloh', to the heart piercing and convicting 'Racing Off To Nowhere", Peter Himmelman has tapped into the soul of those of us who are trying to make sense of the world we live in. If you are already a Himmelman fan, well, I understand your favorite song may be missing. I'm sure it is. But for those of you who've somehow stumbled onto this page, the only thing I can say is this: put on some headphones and listen to the track previews. Hopefully, you'll realize that you're only catching a glimpse of what Peter Himmelman has to offer. I travel a lot as an author. Peter's music is a welcome respite on the road. Buy this CD. I guarantee you will be inspired, as I was, to buy the others.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Mediocre September 29, 2007
By GoBuffs
Format:Audio CD
I love some of his stuff and hate some. Overall I am deeply moved by many of his spiritual and heartsy tracks. What a great poet! But some other stuff just surprises me at times. Overall a great talent, but I honestly expected more from his "Greatest Hits".

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's his best song? April 22, 2007
By Galley
Format:Audio CD
I'm sure this is a fine collection of an artist not too many people know about, but it has one fatal flaw, and that it does not contains his best song, the amazing "Waning Moon" from Gematria
