Format: Audio CD
Never designate Sara Groves as a mere coffee house singer who is pleasant enough to listen to but easily forgettable. While there are some Christian artists who are embarrassed by any blatant doctrinal content, hiding their songs in the double-talk about love that could as easily be physical as well as spiritual. This is not so with Groves. In fact, no one has ever been more pedagogically clear in their teachings about God's truths than Groves. Yet, she is never too heavy handed coming across with hell, fire and brimstone. This is because she has an effortless yet alluring triple-A piano pop style that has often been compared to the music of Shawn Colvin, Nicole Nordeman and Cindy Morgan. "The Collection" is Groves first and her most exhaustive "greatest hits" collection. Featuring 27 prodigious songs over 2 CDs, "The Collection" finds Groves dialing back the clock to 2007 with her debut single "Word" prodding along the passage of time over 10 albums until 2011's "Invisible Empires." And for the avid fan who has owned all her records, there are 4 new songs bookending each disc. They are "Strangely Ready," "Lay It Down," "Kindness to Strangers" and the inaugural single to this set "Blessed Be the Ties."

One thing of note about Groves' oeuvre is that her lyrical contents are catholic in scope yet they are uniquely deep in its literary exposition of pertinent issues. We already see this in her earlier records. From her major label debut "Conversations" we have "Painting Pictures of Egypt.

Groves skillfully and eloquently addresses everyone's cornerstone passions -- life, love, family and faith. THE COLLECTION serves as a tremendous, comprehensive time capsule for a prolific artist whose music truly is out of this world.

Sara Groves is the best Christian songwriter I know. She chooses not to just write the familiar praise and subjects of our day.
She writes from life experiences that have grown her faith or tested it. She's even better in person. But I honestly don't think
she knows how good she is. The humility is genuine. She listens, she writes, she shares what she's given to share. We are
so privileged to receive those gifts of God by way of Sara. This Collection doesn't have all my favorite songs--what could?
But it is a career-spanning collection of quality work and joy. I always look forward to new material from Sara, and the new
material on this was definitely worth the whole purchase.

I have enjoyed Sara Grove's music for several years, this has a bit of new songs and a mix of her best previous work. She always makes me stop and think about her lyrics. She has a individual style all her own. Her songs can be deep with meaning and symbolism but always enjoyable and reaffirming of faith in Jesus. This is another winner, I can't play it enough and am learning her new songs too. Enjoy, learn and grow... Highly recommend.

I love Sara's song "You Are the Sun". It's been playing in my mind for several days. I have found in on occasion to be emotional experience raising the hairs on the back of my neck if I'm in the right mood or drinking properly prepared te for some reason. At any rate there are other good songs on this album, but You are the Sun is a classic to me for sure, along the lines of Amy Grant's El Shaddai, a lot of Keith Green, Michael W Smith songs like Rocket Man, a lof Steven Curtis Chapman, maybe some of Jars of Clay like Work etc.

I love the sound of her voice and the depth of her lyrics. This is a great intro to her works.
