Review

I love it when things come together. And they come together in a big way in this album: shining vocals and superb instrumentation; soul and new age and adult pop; Mary-Kathryn's Christian upbringing and her appreciation for all of the world's religious and spiritual traditions. Immensely listenable, the melodies are both light and deep. In instrumentation, the keyboards and piano are strong, backed by acoustic and electric guitar and sitar, bass, Chapman stick and drums. The first cut, Incense of Praise, celebrates the greatness of all religions, followed by You Are There wherever you go, you and the Holy Spirit. In Dreamers, the Mary-Kathryn addresses our need for men and women of vision in our day. The tune Psalm 91 has backing angel voices by the Finnish group Fire 4U. Mary-Kathryn plays piano on two of her original tunes, In Your Time and Flying Toward the Sun. Eve of Your Return looks with hope to the future, and the final cut, Glory Forever, is done in the spirit of worship with a large choir in the background. --The Light Connection

Mary-Kathryn is a unique voice in the popular and rapidly-growing New Age/New Thought movement. She is one of today s few musical artists to sing deeply spiritual lyrics over a world music-influenced sound that also includes elements of new age and adult pop. Mary-Kathryn has built a loyal following that appreciates her gentle yet passionate vocals, the mysticism of her music and the prophetic nature of her lyrics which have a broad-based sacredness to them. --Celestopea Times

Mary-Kathryn is one of the few artists moving comfortably between the Christian market and the Adult Eclectic market, otherwise known as the commercial world of New Age. I imagine it s not an easy path, as her sound is possibly New Age-y enough to offend some Christians, and her lyrics, while not always overt, definitely come across as Christian and even are straight-up Scripture at times, probably too spiritual for New Agers. But it s where she believes she has been directed, and Dreams & Visions is her fourth offering along those lines, a unique blend of soft pop, folk and world music with strong spiritual overtones. --Crosswalk

Mary-Kathryn is an incredible talent. Her voice is mesmerizing, her lyrics absolutely inspiring and her musical style and influences embrace many cultures. She blends New Thought, New Age, Pop, World and Christian based spirituality in a very unique way. I love her newest album "Dreams & Visions" but I also like her previous CDs One Spirit and Stream in the Desert If you like Loreena McKennit, Enya or Sarah Brightman you will enjoy Mary-Kathryn.

On Dreams & Visions, her fourth release, Mary-Kathryn has created a worship album for the world. God-breathed but somewhat generic lyrics, a strong and beautiful voice, world music influences, soft pop/rock and a heart that seeks to unite people combine to produce an album that anyone looking to connect with God through music will enjoy.

The first song, "Incense of Praise," with its opening sitar and Hugh Marsh's electric violin flourishes, set the stage for a song that envisions people of all nations worshipping before the throne of God. It's strong rhythm, exotic instrumentation and a brief interlude of singing in the spirit make it one of the outstanding tracks.

Another highlight is the alternative rock sound of "In Your Time," which includes a barely audible reading of Isaiah 60 toward the end. The power and beauty of Mary-Kathryn's voice is particularly evident on the hymn, "My Father's World." "You Are There," which includes an answering male background vocal, is reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac.

Though many of the songs are directed toward God, they also convey comfort as in "Flying Toward the Sun," which speaks of unconditional love. Mesmerizing and soothing are two words that come to mind in connection with Mary-Kathryn's music.

It's a delight to hear Hugh Marsh's violin on several songs. His brother Fergus joins him on Chapman Stick and bass. The out of the ordinary instrumentation and production scattered throughout give this album a unique sound.

Though this might be a little too "new age" for some, it provides a broad appeal making it accessible to those of varied persuasions.

First off, for those who wonder... this is NOT new age music. It is more like Christian dance or pop. But genre aside, the music is upbeat and the lyrics are strong of faith and worship of God. I did not enoy it as much as earlier Mary-Kathryn cds, however, because of its "pop-ishness" and heavy bass sounds.

Mary-Kathryn has be recording and sharing her music since her first album in 1995. "Dreams & Visions" is her fourth album to date and is her best album!! My all time favorite song on this CD is the first one called "Incense Of Praise." I loved it the moment I heard it. I would classify her music as World Music but some songs sound more Celtic sound where others sound more Middle Eastern. I was listening to an interview and she said that God told her that her call was to be a psalmest and she was to share her music to help inspire and bring healing. If you like Moya Brennan, Enya or Loreena McKennit then you will like her. She has recontly gained success in the New Age genre. When asked about the sound she states that it was ours first. It is a great album and I highly recommend any of her albums. In my opion this one is her best!
