Michael W. Smith (also called Smitty by his fans) has become one of the most enduring Christian artists, putting him with such company as Stephen Curtis Chapman and Bryan Duncan. This 1995 release has Smitty's fingerprints all over it, bringing us his usual mix of pop songs and musical interludes.
Each of the 14 tracks on this album clearly show where Smitty's heart is: pointing to the Lord. The wide range of messages found on this album will result in one or more of them hitting the heart of all who listen.
His most popular album since his 1990 effort, "Go West Young Man," this CD is a must for all Smitty fans and a good one to start with for those who have never heard of him before.

I'll Lead You Home is a nice transition for Michael W. Smith from his more upbeat cds targeted more towards younger listeners. While I have enjoyed his other cds, I particularly enjoyed this one.
The collection contains more reflective songs appropriate for Christian meditation. My personal favorites include: Crown Him With Many Crowns, Calling Heaven, I'll Lead You Home, The Other Side of Me, Breath In Me, Angels Unaware, and I'm Waiting for You.
While the above are my favorites, the other songs are good also. All in all, a highly recommened buy! Buy and enjoy!

This is some of the most touching music from an absolutely wonderful artist. When I first heard this album I was disappointed in Michael W. Smith for putting out such a low key collection. After all the pre-release hype I thought I had gotten ripped off. It wasn't until much later, and I was a few years older that I could truly appreciate this album for the beauty that inside. Give this album a shot. If you don't like it wait a few years and try it again. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Perhaps the most lush of all his recordings, Michael W. Smith's 'I'll Lead You Home' is full of promise and invitation. With powerful vocals as usual, the orchestrations are formidable without getting mushy. As a lyricist, he is able to pull out all the stops. Taking on subjects such as crises of faith and racial strife, he goes for each listener's heart by extolling us to seek consolation, healing, and meaning from our heavenly source.

Much like Joel Osteen as a preacher, Smith has the perceptive wisdom to illuminate that our hearts are wounded in life's ordeals and need some perspective to sort things out. We are cajolled to continue as weary pilgrims on the title track; then encouraged not to lose heart on the truly ethereal "Calling Heaven". Truly effective, he has the goods to diagnose the problem with existence ("Cry for Love") and relationships ("Breakdown"). Then, he offers heavenly consolation ("I'll Be Around" and "Someday") Yet, once he presents an understanding God, he presents praising the Lord as our ultimate remedy ("As It Is in Heaven" and "Crown Him with Many Crowns") As is typical of Michael W. Smith, he leaves his congregation with a message that comes from God in the first person (an attribute he takes on so well with the inspirational invitation of "I'm Waiting for You").

Easily, the instrumentation of 'I'll Lead You Home,' could have become too formulaic, but Smith's ability to create a breadth of music as well as his wealth of understanding of the wounded human heart, give the C.D. a substantative healing experience without becoming muzak to our ears.

I own many of Michael W. Smith's albums and am familiar with almost all of them. I would have to put this on the short list of my best albums.

There are many tracks that I absolutely love. "Cry for Love" is a solid start and "As It Is in Heaven," "Someday," and the title track are outstanding. But the high point of the album is the Trilogy, Tracks 8-10. I think that all three of those songs are musically beautiful and lyrically powerful. Quite honestly, the Trilogy is worth the price of the album. And it concludes with several other good songs, like "Calling Heaven" and "I"m Waiting for You."

I would never accuse Smith of having a glorious voice. However, I consider him to be the most brilliant songwriter of modern Christian music and a wonderful musician. This album is a true testament to his remarkable gifts. I listen to it often and recommend it to anyone.

I've skirted in and out of spirituality, and this album has always inspired me, and if nothing else, served as quality entertainment. The vocals are improved over Smith's past works, and there seems to be more production to his sound. If you're looking for a CD with more than one good song, this is a great choice - there are numerous songs that have become favorites of mine, and they are all highly powerful songs you can connect with.

This is the best Album of Smitty's yet. It has everything. "Straight To the Heart" really touched me. I also like "Someday", "I'll Be Around", "I'll Lead You Home", "A Little Stronger Everyday", and "I'm Waiting For You", which is the perfect closing song. Add this one to your collection!

There are few albums which I listen to without skipping a song here or there. In a lot of cases, I just put it down to personal taste. But this is one of the few that I enjoy from start to finish. Not just a favorite from Smitty, but a favorite among all my CD's.
