All my favorites with a twist, +2 new!
on January 22, 2013
I have several of Casting Crowns previous albums, and I am very happy with all of them. This CD is great because it has many of my favorites with an acoustic twist. I really enjoy the simplicity of the piano, or guitar, and the beautiful melody of some of God's most beautiful voices. The harmonization on East To West is definitely one of my favorites, and Praise You In This Storm is even more moving on this cd. I believe that I enjoy this version of Set Me Free even more than the original on Lifesong.
'Delivered (acoustic)', which is new, is wonderful, upbeat, and I can see myself listening to this in the morning to get going. 'Only You (acoustic)' really cuts deep with powerful lyrics, it is a gripping musical arrangement. I'm really excited to see new music intertwined with my go-to favorites.
With the occasional string arrangement, this acoustic version really lets the message shine through. The clean and clear music just makes Casting Crowns even more of a treasured band in our household. I look forward to subsequent volumes! I would really recommend this to a new fan since it has so many of my favorites, but it would be a good addition to anyone's collection.
