Top Customer Reviews
I love her music, and I want to thank Christine for creating wonderful songs in English!
Problem: Only thing I did not like about this purchase was that the case was broken. I bought this with free shipping option free so I was not going to spend extra money to have it replaced.
Conclusion: This may look like such trivial thing that I may look silly, but I expect Amazon to meet customers' needs and satisfactions 100%, not 99.9%.
I’m very impressed by Christine’s powerful and emotive vocals which remind me of passionate female Jesus Culture singers, Kim Walker-Smith, Kristene DiMarco and Steffany Frizzell. Deeper opens with a great upbeat invitational song, “Reign,” which has piercing and sincere vertical lyrics perfectly setting the tone for this great album: “Let the Church cry out, open the Heavens, with Your power, we want to see You lifted high, break into darkness, shining glory.” Amen to that! The album has a mesmerizing, contemplative vibe and every song invites the listener to join in with Christine as she praises our Savior and Lord Jesus with all of her heart and soul. “Magnified” provides me comfort as I sing at the top of my lungs: “Every breath we sing is Yours, Every heart and every soul will declare Jesus magnified.” This song reminds all of us that the pain of this world is temporary and to live for Heaven. My life verse is Isaiah 6:8, and the entire album’s sentiment ties in with Isaiah’s meeting God and saying, “woe is me, I am a man of unclean lips.” I find myself meeting God in every song on this album. For me, songs like “Magnified” provide opportunities for God to whisper to me my TRUE identity - not found in what I do or don't do, but in who I am - more importantly to Whom I belong. These songs invites listeners to worship along with her and you can’t help but get swept up in the emotion of the songs. These opening songs set the tone for a special worship experience. No matter what you are going through in life, God’s promise to His children is that one day we will overcome.
The next songs blow me away with how vulnerable and personal they get. “Pursuit” has become my personal worship anthem and keeps the cohesive theme going with the gorgeous and prayerful offering reflecting the yearnings of my heart: “I’m pressing into You, so do not pass me by / I’m breaking through the boundaries, I will not be denied.” There is incredible comfort and biblical Truth in this song and Christine’s passionate vocals will have you hanging on every word, especially during the lyrics which wreck me—“Open my eyes, search me inside / I can’t live without Your presence, I can’t live without Your presence.” What an incredible prayer to our King and Savior. There is great comfort in knowing Jesus and being known by Him in every detail of our lives. “Father of Mine” stops me in my tracks as Christine slays me with her confessional and prayerful vocal style, opening with the imploring and intimate lyrics, “Keep me, keep me, keep me, In Your shadow, Lord For this I know, there is no safer place.” It is one of the most compelling songs I’ve ever heard and perfectly captures the intimacy of our relationship with Jesus and He is our Bridegroom and we are all His bride. He is the Father to the fatherless, and as the song tenderly proclaims, He is “Abba, Father of mine.” Amen.
“Your Presence is Heaven” has another confessional lyric that also really grabs me: “Who is like You Lord in all the earth? / Matchless love and beauty, endless worth / Nothing in this world will satisfy / Jesus You're the cup that won't run dry / Your presence is heaven to me.” Produced by Paul Mabury (All Sons & Daughters/Hillsong) and featuring songs written specifically with the global Church in mind, D’Clario’s passion for her faith is evident from the first note on Deeper. Whether it’s a joyful standout track like “Reign,” that expresses her desire to see God’s Kingdom on Earth, to the soulful strains of “Faithfulness” or “Magnified,” a timely anthem for the redeemed, Deeper is filled with relevant reminders of the joys of being in God’s presence. Christine travels internationally singing, leading worship and speaking, calling people into a greater place of wholeness, healing and freedom in their lives and in their relationship with God.
CLOSING THOUGHTS (Staff Review, NewReleaseTuesday.com)
Christine is clearly in love with Jesus and how these songs convey her relationship with our Lord and Savior in these songs is truly inspiring and convicting. If you like albums with God-focused worshipful lyrics, musical diversity and engaging female vocals with a lot of range then you’ll want to check out Deeper by Christine D’Clario. Every song on this album has quickly become a staple in my playlist of my favorite worship anthems. The songs are all worshipful and catchy. The vertical worship and number of songs I could imagine singing in union with fellow believers in a corporate worship setting is another highlight of this very solid album. Some of the songs that would be great additions to church services are “Reign,” “Magnified,” “Pursuit,” “Father of Mine” and “Your Presence is Heaven.” This is one of the most emotionally moving albums I’ve ever heard. Christine’s remarkable singing voice and her interesting music and lyrics are truly captivating. For sure, this will be among my top worship albums of the year. Do yourself a favor and buy this album immediately. You’ll be refreshed, nourished, encouraged and turn to God for your strength.
Our God loves colors, that is, people of all colors. Such a sublime truth is germane to the ministry of Integrity Music. Over the years, this God-honoring imprint has tried to spread the fame of God's name through music to beyond just English-language speakers. Sprouting off from the label's kernel of love for the nations are notable Spanish language albums such as Don Moen's "En Tu Prescencia," Lenny LeBlanc's "Fe!" and Kari Jobe's "Le Canto." Further, Messianic worship leader Paul Wilbur also has a band new Spanish album in the works. Not only has Integrity Music encouraged their mainstream English artists to record foreign language albums, but they have a whole Latin wing committed to raising local talents to sing in their own mother tongue. And many of these Latino artists are also encouraged to cross pollinate back into the English-speaking market with Julissa releasing a 3-song English ep "Forever" and a full-length English-language album "Metamorfosis" last year. 2013 ushers in Christine D'Clario. Those not exposed to Christian Latin music are in for a treat. Born in Yonkers, New York in 1982, D'Clario spent her first seven years in the Big Apple until the death of her father. After which they moved to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where she began involved in music by age nine. After years of perseverance, D'Clario was finally signed to Integrity Latin Music. As a result she has caused quite a stir in the Hispanic Christian community with her albums especially her latest Spanish record "De Vnelta al Jardin" (which means "Back to the Garden').
"Deeper" is D'Clario's first foray into the English-speaking market with 10 newly cut worship songs. From her Spanish-only choreography, one would never have guessed that English is actually the bilingual singer's first language. "Deeper" ranks up there with many worship albums especially that of Jesus Culture's Kim Walker-Smith's. Often lauded by fans and critics alike as the Spanish Kim Walker-Smith, such comparisons are by no means groundless. Just like the Jesus Culture worship leader, D'Clario likes her worship slow, intense, contemplative, Spirit-led and torch like. Moreover, one of the songs often associated with Walker-Smith is the John Mark McMillan's "How He Loves." Similarly, D'Clario's most incendiary performance caught on disc is her rendition of the Spanish version of "How He Loves" aka "El nos ama." Months after Kim Walker-Smith has just recorded Daniel Bashta's "Pursuit" on the "Live from New York" CD, D'Clario follows suit with her own version here. D'Clario offers a crisper version of this modern day companion to Francis Thompson's "The Hound of Heaven" where God is mercifully presented as a relentless Father. Also in chorus with Walker-Smth's style is D'Clario's take of Desperation Band's "Magnified."
Though Kim Walker-Smith may have been D'Clario's vector of influence but she does demonstrate that she has her own individuality too. She shows that she can gravitate around a captivating pop hook with the sunny "Reign." On the other hand, she can shed any thread of pretense and bares her soul with childlike trust on her cover of Fike and Dana's "Who is Like the Father." The way she cries out to God, "I need you daddy, I love you daddy" is just heart warming. And she kicks off her heels and delivers a passionate take of label mate Paul Baloche's "Arise;" while offering a really heartfelt version of Israel Houghton's "Your Presence is Heaven to Me." While Houghton's version is way too crowded, here D'Clario's version is more intimate and far more worshipful. Interestingly, Hillsong leader Darlene Zschech (yet another Integrity Music artist) also has offered her reading of this same song that will be released a month or so after D'Clario's album drops.
"Faithfulness" follows in the footsteps of Hillsong's "Cornerstone" and Chris Tomlin's "Crown Him" where modern verses are tagged onto a hymn. Here the evergreen hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness" is tagged onto the end of a newly written song that works out seamlessly well. Perhaps, the only dip with this album is that there are far too many covers. Though many of them are fairly obscure, one would want to see more of D'Clario as just another singer of worship songs. Maybe if she could somehow incorporate her Spanish roots a little more, the outcome might be even more diverse and interesting. And her music would be more even more colorful just as our God himself loves colors.
