I like the CD very much and the fact that Jason writes the music is impressive to me.
Brenda Rice
And there are songs that speak of God's truth in human relationships that need to be heard if we want to bear greater resemblance to the Son.
Timothy Yap
Everyone I have played it for has commented on how good it is and that they wanted to buy it too.

Prime Cuts: Same Kind of Broken (with Moriah Peters), Only a Mountain, Enough

The music industry is iconoclastic when it comes to American Idols. How many idols of this popular competitive singing TV show have been toppled over, smashed and crushed? Save for Kelly Clarkson, Scotty McCreery and Carrie Underwood, many of the alumni are either stranded on Adult Contemporary isle recycling standards (Clay Aiken) or facilely changing genres hoping to click somewhere (Rueben Studdard, Diana DeGarmo and Phil Stacey) or frustratingly struggling with meager sales (Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks) or left without a major label recording contract (Taylor Hicks, Lee DeWyze and Kellie Pickler). Coming in as a contestant in the seventh season of the show, Castro was no carbon copy of his peers; he was essentially a man of his own. Being the first ever idol to don his signature dreadlocks, play the ukulele while singing "Over the Rainbow," sing in three languages, and offer stripped down acoustic renditions of songs in a notoriously diva-belting show, Castro was not afraid to parlay his uniqueness. Another defining characteristic about Castro is that he is also a Christian and he has no qualms singing or speaking of his beliefs. Though his Christian beliefs were shrouded behind love songs on his debut record, within a matter of a few months Word records re-launched the album with 5 added faith-explicit tracks. And on this new sophomore CD "Only a Mountain," God and Biblically-centred issues take a front seat.

Album opener, title cut and the vanguard single "Only a Mountain" sets the tenor of the album. "Only a Mountain" is a crisp, catchy and radio friendly pop burner that muscularly places trust in God without for a moment sentimentalizing life's struggles.

I think this is Jason's best CD yet! The songs are so well written and sung. They touch your soul and inspire your belief in God. My 8 year old son loves it. He asks to listen to Jason. I saw Jason perform these songs live and they made me cry! On a side note, Jason is just an awesome person. My son won a private meet-and-greet with him and he was so great with my very shy son. He really tries to be the best person he can and we are fans forever! Signed, Gunner and Mom

I really enjoyed Jason Castro's first album. I even liked the CD where they re-released it and added some more Christian songs on it for the CCM fans. But this album is a huge step forward in maturity and songwriting. Stand out cuts for me are "Stay This Way," "Safehouse," and the title cut. Love his voice and delivery. Really nice record. I am so glad I bought it!

I have followed Jason Castro ever since i saw and heard him on American Idol - i loved his uniqueness and warmth about him along with his smooth but unique voice. His songs all seem so heartfelt and genuine and so easy to listen to and uplifting and always like every song on every album. I can't wait to hear his next album and know it won't disappoint!

The production of Castro's latest is almost amaturish. The vocals seem to get lost and over powered by the music. It's very hard to say what we like about his vocals since thay take a backseat to the music. We bought the cd for Jason Castro vocals.

I heard 'Only a Mountain' on the radio and had to do a Sunday school lesson on the song. I bought the album as soon as I heard the song and love the whole thing. This guy is inspirational.

Heartfelt and soulful. If you're feeling down or broken this will lift you up. I find myself playing it over and over again because the lyrics are powerful and encouraging.
