...but I would have been remorseful! After downloading this CD I sat and listened to it, and then again, and again. Chris Rice took some of my favorite hymns and not only gave them a update, but more skillfully kept the soft, peaceful melody of each song. After hearing so many contemporary artists cover hymns and totally slaughter the songs, this was like a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone and everyone, even if you are like me and can't even listen to Christian radio.
All that just allows the power of these classic words to shine brightly. I mean, really, how can you go wrong with "It is Well with My Soul," "Great is Thy Faithfulness," "A Might Fortress," and "How Great Thou Art." And he does multiple verses of the song. There are no medleys here. Each track is just one hymn. To my shame I must confess that I don't have every verse to these songs memorized, so this is a great way to learn more because (I can't say this enough) they lyrics are awesome.
The only song I was already familiar with is "O Freedom," an old spiritual. Chris' piano is quite fun on this one, really helping give it the proper flavor. Most of the rest of the arrangements are pretty straight up.
There's really nothing outstanding or awe inspiring about the production. But it's simplicity allows you to truly focus on the words. And that is what makes it so great.
