When the first song of Justin McRoberts CD started playing I was surprised. It is a song about doubt--not the typical opening lyrics from a Christian contemporary artist. As I continued listening I realized this whole album isn't typical at all.

In his album "Through Songs I was First Undone," Justin shares 10 songs (including three additional bonus tracks when you purchase off his site) that have impacted him through the years on his Christian journey. He shares these songs not as a benefit album, or as filler between his own writing projects, but as a believer who keeps a lookout for God in expressions of art and creativity. Here is Justin's explanation:

"The moments I've had with the artists whose music makes up this new project have been sacred... undoubtedly. It is key to note that these sacred moments have, for the most part, taken place outside of the boundaries of the christian marketplace and the `area' generally reserved for the activity of God. These artists and their songs have been central to the necessary undoing of the expectations and limitations I habitually place on God; expectations of how, where and through whom God is revealed. I recognize God in their art and I believe it is a duty, as an artist and a christian, to point Him out where He is and celebrate Him there."

The covers themselves are marvelously done. Justin gives homage to the original artists, yet stays true to his own musical style. Some of the songs are easily recognizable, like Howard Jones' song, "No One Is To Blame" and some of them have such a new interpretation and delivery, like the Rolling Stones, "You Can't Always Get What You Want," that people will embrace them like they were original though they will already know the words.

I'm probably a bad person to review a cover project since I don't know any of the original versions, to which Justin himself responded with pride and humor that he had the privilege of introducing me to this band, you may have heard of them, the Rolling Stones. But aside from my lack of musical experience, this is a great little collection.

Justin makes them his own, like any good cover project needs to, but you can still feel some of the original artist coming through (I could easily pick out the Nine Inch Nails and George Michael songs, despite not knowing the originals).

The best songs on the album are perhaps the most intimate ones, "Gerogia Lee" (by Tom Waits) and "Head Like a Hole" (by Nine Inch Nails). Both songs are honest explorations of truth, the kind of thing Justin is good at.
