5.0 out of 5 stars An Invitation I'm Glad I Accepted, November 24, 2008
This review is from: The Invitation (Audio CD)
Meredith Andrews has released her first major label recording. And it is absolutely wonderful. She has a background as a worship leader, and it shows. The tracks are heavily focused praising the Lord of what He has done for us. Yet they include a strong pop element making them catchier than some of the other worship oriented releases out there.

The first single has been a huge hit. "You're Not Alone" is an outstanding song of encouragement. It's a piano ballad with heavy strings. The verses describe her search for love while the chorus is God's response, reminding us that He is always near us. Meredith's voice rises over the instruments in an absolutely beautiful way. There's also an acoustic version (without the strings, basically) as a bonus track at the end.

But this disc is so much more than just that one hit song. The piano based pop starts from the first track, "You Invite Me In," about God's open invitation to us. The upbeat "Lift Up Your Head" is another song of praise to the God who mends and heals us without changing. "Show Me What it Means" is a song of dedication in response to all God has done for us. And "The River" is the other ballad, and is a beautiful invitation to come to the living water.

Most of the 10 songs here are mid tempo pop, but they sound different enough that are immediately memorable. The music never gets in the way of the lyrics, however. I find my heart lifted in praise within seconds of putting this disc in, no matter what track I start with.

Here's hoping this is the first disc in a long, profitable career. I know I'll be back to see what Meredith does next.
