Editorial Reviews

Steven Curtis Chapman returns with his new album re:creation. The new album features 5 new songs from Steven including the first single "Do Everything", and all-new recordings of his 8 biggest hits. The entire album has a progressive and fresh acoustic sound, which reflects the energy and life found in the songs. The title speaks to the actual re:creation of these songs, which are re-imagined and re-recorded in a new musical space. More and most importantly though, the word re:creation speaks to the new life God is creating... re-creating... for Steven and his family as they walk forward in their lives.

"I wrote the song "Do Everything" really to remind myself and also to encourage others that everything matters; everything we do can be done as an act of worship," says Steven. "I Corinthians 10 says, "Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God." There's this tendency it seems to think of life with this line drawn down the middle where there's the spiritual stuff on one side and then just the stuff of life on the other. Really though, I think God wants us to remember, and I'm trying to learn, that whether it's walking the dog, washing the dishes, taking out the trash... to the really big spiritual moments, that all of that can be done as an act of worship and everything can be done to bring glory to the God who made us for that very purpose."

Prime Cuts: For the Sake of the Call, Heaven in the Real World, More to this Life

Some album titles are frivolously thought of, but not Chapman's 17th studio effort. "Re:creation" is a profound title as its meaning unfolds on a few levels: First, this is the first Chapman disc after his heart wrenching "Beauty Will Rise"--a collection of songs in response to his daughter's death. Thus, this new disc is a new "re-creation" for Chapman as he soldiers on in life after his bereavement. Second, many of the songs speak of the "re-creation" the Bible teaches after one has experienced the life transforming power of the Son of God. Songs like "Heaven in the Real World," "Long Way Home," "Magnificent Obsession" all details the renewed hope one can find in Christ. Third, though there are 5 new cuts and a new recording of the hymn "Morning is Broken," the bulk of the disc are Chapman's re-interpretations of his older hits. Some of these 8 chestnuts have been re-written, and all of them have been re-imagined, re-worked, re-interpreted and re-recorded in a more subdue and understated acoustic setting. Despite its scantier backings, these "re:creations" are heftier in meaning and affect as they have been imbued with greater sensitivity, warmth and brokenness than its original takes.

Of the newly composed songs, "Do Everything" is first to be let out of the gates as the first single off this disc. Already charging speedily up to the penthouse position of the Christian charts, "Do Everything" finds Chapman back to his signature pop sound.

Being a heavy acoustic listener, I was really looking forward to this album. For the most part, I was pleased, and it spoke to me. What I was expecting was an extended version of his Abbey Studio acoustic CD. However, it's not fully acoustic as they advertised. I wasn't expecting loud electric guitar songs, but they did this for some reason on "Do Everything" and "All That's Left". It also felt like the keyboard was overdone and loud which drained the "acoustic" feel, like "Magnificent Obsession". But, being someone who listened to him for 15+ years, I have to say the re:created songs were very welcomed. It brought back good memories, and out of difficult times, his message is even more clear to me than it was 15 years ago: to appreciate this short life, and do everything for His glory. I guess I was expecting Abbey Studios 2, but that's okay! Most were acoustic in nature. Thanks for the message at this needed time.

If at any time you had an experience that changed your perspective forever, and you saw the past differently, then this album is one that you might understand more than most. Re:creation is Steven Curtis Chapman's look back at his musical career with the eyes of an older man perhaps having reached higher mountains and survived lower valleys than he ever expected. He has taken these songs- songs that had bright youthful faith and determination,- and turned them into his later in life anthem of dedication to God, Jesus, and his family. His voice reflects a more mature man with a more mature faith. His strength in singing songs dedicated to God after living a life most would agree was dynamic and held tragedy is evident and there is a new nuance not heard before.
The instrumentation also reflects the maturing of a musician. There is more emphasis on lyrics for some (Dive, Not Home Yet) and the intricate use of different musical instruments offers a different mosaic to hold these lyrics against. Not exactly pop, I'd call this album more worship than anything else. If life (and God) changes us, then this album is the beauty that continues to rise from the ashes for this man and family.

I was a bit disappointed with this album. SCC seems to be a little hung up on his old songs in this album, and redoes them in a way that they all have the same sound and feel to them--very similar to the tone of his previous album, Beauty Will Rise. For those die-hard fans of SCC (of which I am one) it probably won't disappoint as much as it has me, but you just have to listen to it and find out for yourself. You would be wise to preview it online if possible before purchasing it, or, borrow it from someone who has a copy to see if it meets your listening expectations. Sorry Steven!

I’ve been a Steven Curtis Chapman fan for close to 20 years now. His discs are on my automatic buy list. I’ll admit I don’t listen to all of them equally, but all of them have some songs on them I love. So when I found out that he was releasing Re:Creation, it went on my buy list sight unseen. Turns out I didn’t need to rush out to buy it.

This is not a disc of all new music. Instead, it features 6 completely new tracks, one of which is a new arrangement of a classic hymn. The other 8 tracks are “re:created” versions of some of his classics. And anyone who knows Steven’s music can probably guess at many of the songs included here. Unfortunately, both sets of songs are mixed bags.

The disc starts out with two of the new tracks. “Do Everything” is one of the more upbeat songs on the disc and ties in with Steven’s usual pop/light rock sound. It’s got a catchy tune that will easily get stuck in your head. The lyrics remind us to do everything for God’s glory. It’s fine, but it’s a sentiment we’ve heard before from other artists.

“Long Way Home” is one of several songs that find Steven playing the ukulele. (And why is this suddenly the popular instrument of the year?) It’s laid back feeling is more in keeping with much of the rest of the disc. It’s also easily my favorite track on the disc. First of all, it references a few of his classics like “Great Adventure” and “Not Home Yet.” But more importantly, it shows a faith in God to help through the mountains and valleys of life. Considering all Steven has gone through in the last few years with the loss of his daughter (which provided the background for his last release), I find the statement of faith here encouraging.

Also in the new song department, we’ve got “All That’s Left.
