Editorial Reviews

Dove Award winning artist Bebo Norman is set to release his newest project entitled "Ocean" that is coming out this September. Bebo has continued to stretch the musical arrangements to his often worshipful melodies. "You can't understand light unless you understand darkness, because that's where life is most often lived - somewhere between the two. It's messy and it's beautiful all at the same time," says Bebo Norman.

Format: Audio CD
Every two years, singer/songwriter Bebo Norman undergoes what he calls an extended therapy session. The intensive process isn't always smooth sailing, but it does result in ten or twelve moments of completion--a clear look back through his own window at a story God is telling. Also known as making a new album, it's an exercise in discovery that Bebo takes to remarkable depths on his seventh studio project, Ocean. As the writer and singer of some of my all-time favorite songs "The Hammer Holds," "Great Light Of The World," "Nothing Without You," "I Will Lift My Eyes" and Dove Award winning "The Only Hope," I eagerly anticipate each new album by Bebo Norman. After repeated listens, I'm convinced that Ocean is the best overall album by Bebo Norman in my opinion and is my top overall album of 2010.

Opening song "Everything I Hoped You'd Be" is poetic, folk-oriented rock full of natural imagery to describe a choppy spiritual journey from deserts to mountains, with Bebo realizing God "will be the water I drink forever / Let it wash me over, oh my soul." "Here Goes," co-written with longtime friend and fellow artist Brandon Heath, advocates a life marked by leaps into the unknown while reasoning, "I never loved anyone by playing it safe . . . never lost and never found are one and the same." "God of My Everything," is drawn from a combination of despairing stories involving "people as close to me as anyone on this planet who had to rebuild their lives based on their identity in God rather than their own." By the time I finished listening to the first three amazing songs, I knew I was in for a treat. "The Hammer Holds" and "I Will Lift My Eyes" are my favorite songs by Bebo Norman and these opening songs are worshipful and introspective like those vintage songs.

I have all of his albums and have enjoyed his unique sound for the past 10+ years. While some of his previous efforts lacked a mainstream feel - they were solid and the message in the music was always there. On this album - Bebo retains his unique sound while at the same time pushes the edge of mainstream in the way the album is put together and some of the "sound" of his songs. It is hard to pick a favorite song off this album - but the first track would have to be my pick today. "Everything I Hoped You'd Be" is a great song. I look forward to future albums by Bebo. This is his best yet.

And for those considering Bebo for the first time...make sure to pick up his Christmas album - with the celebration of Christ's birth right around the corner - his Christmas music is a great addition to anyone's Christmas music collection.

Norman's "Ocean" demonstrates his mastery song writing, connecting his lyrics and music to make beautiful songs. The production compliments every song. He clearly put his heart and soul into his writing and invites the listener into his intimacy with God. He beautifully marks each song with depth and complexity that makes each listening interesting and new. The bridge in "Here Goes" rivals the likes of Coldplay's "Strawberry Swing". The harmony from the title song "Ocean" will have you singing for days. Exquisite!

OK, I'll admit it: I really like Bebo Norman's music. Always have.

But he sort of drifted off for a while there, musically. Seemed to have lost his luster.

But with his album "Ocean," Bebo's back.

OK, let's get the negative out of the way up front. The songs all seem to have the same pace to them. But that's sort of typical Bebo Norman - so if you like his music, this is maybe even good news.

And if you're looking for a collection of songs that will have had heavy radio play, this isn't it. My local Christian radio stations seem to have forgotten about Bebo Norman - or, more probably, his music isn't within the relatively narrow musicology they're looking for.

I'm not sure why the song "Ocean" got the nod when they were looking for a name for the album - perhaps this is Bebo's favorite (or perhaps more likely, a record exec thought this would be the most commerically viable of the lot - but as I said before: Bebo doesn't seem to be getting much radio play anyway).

That's it. Those are the "negatives" as I see it.

Now the positive: this is overall one fine collection. Solid musically. Typically thoughtful, insightful lyrics. And the sweeping chorus/main music theme that has marked the best Bebo Norman tunes in the past is present here. My personal faves are "Everything I Hoped You'd Be", "Remember Us" "God of My Everything" and "Sing Over Me".

Looking for Bebo at his best? (Or at least nearly so!) This is a great CD to pick up.
