Undoubtedly, Age to Age, Unguarded, and Heart in Motion will probably be lauded when she's gone but "Lead Me On" is Amy Grant's magnum opus and her legacy to the church and the world.

This is arguably one of the three best Christian albums ever cut (it was ranked as such by CCM magazine a few years back) and easily one of the best ever made across all genres. Confession, introspection, joy, fear, brokenness, poetry, anger - the gamut of human expression is here. The honesty and commitment are breathtaking. And there are some lyrical sledgehammers on this thing that still knock me to the floor some nineteen years later.

I cannot recommend it strongly enough.

If any Amy Grant album -- indeed, any contemporary Christian music (CCM) album -- deserves a 20th anniversary edition, it's Lead Me On (1988). Over 20 years ago, from the moment you first started playing your LP, cassette tape, or CD of this album (and I had the LP version, which had two fewer songs than the other two formats), if you were paying even a modicum of attention, you knew immediately something was different. The opening shake of the tambourine and the cascade of organic sound that immediately followed was the total opposite of the technopop of Amy Grant's previous release, the successful crossover (i.e., from Christian to secular markets) album Unguarded. Unguarded had been many things -- extremely evangelistic, joyful, and fun come most immediately to mind -- but it had only very rarely been deep and even less frequently been introspective. Lead Me On showed us an Amy Grant who was willing to bare her darker side, not (thankfully) in a way that even remotely approached a gossipy tell-all, but in a here's-what-my-real-life-is-like kind of admission. (In interviews, Grant and her then-husband Gary Chapman spelled out what much of the music pointed to: an extremely difficult time in their marriage.) In doing so, Grant not only made an "artist's album" that showed her, for the first time, to be a very talented poet as well as a very good pop songwriter, but also unintentionally brought the entire CCM industry to a new level of honesty and maturity.

The album opens with the poetic "1974," a song recalling Grant's teenage conversion to Christianity in the year mentioned.

This by far is one of the best albums..........period!
Since "Heart In Motion" became Amy's "Thriller"..."Lead Me On" is definetly her "Off The Wall"....an album that you can play over and over again and never get tired of it!
AND...if you have a chance to see the LEAD ME ON 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR...GO AND SEE IT!!!

Seeing her do these songs live after 20yrs is amazing! I remember all that I was going through when this album came out and how it got me through!!...It still has the same impact today as it did so long ago.

BTW, another reviewer mentioned how "Faithless Heart" is difficult to listen to considering what Amy has been through in her personal life...I understand why this was said ......BUT, I do want to share what AMY said during the concert:
"Gary Chapman played bass on the original tour and since he, Vince and I decide that would not be a good idea for this reunion, I got the guy who played bass on the orignal recording, Mike Brignardello".....(The audience laughed!).....So with that said, all I can say is "Thank You Jesus for the power of forgiveness!"

It's hard to believe 20 years have passed since this great CD first hit store shelves. Oh, I know her next release, Heart in Motion, would overshadow this release as far as number of copies sold. But for my money, this is Amy Grant at her best.

One reason this disc is so great is that it sounds timeless. Yes, it was released in 1988, but you have to listen close to catch the 80's influence. Yes, it is there, most noticeably on the title track or "Shadows." But it is kept to a minimum most of the time. Heck, piano is the predominant instrument in the beautiful ""If These Walls Could Speak." And there are lots of strings and guitar, too.

But the lyrics are good, too. Amy struggles here between faith, love, and how humans actually behave. "1974" opens the disc talking about the joy of her confusion. But then comes the title track that incorporates imagery of slavery and the holocaust between cries to find a place where people aren't cruel to each other. That theme is picked up again in "What About the Love" in which Amy sees how we give power to the strong and wonders where love is in our world.

True, a couple of the tracks haven't aged well due solely to Amy's personal life. I just can't listen to "Faithless Heart" and "Sure Enough" without thinking about her divorce and remarriage. Judgmental of me? Probably. But I can't help it.

When I first got this project, I got it on tape. It only had ten of the twelve songs on the CD. As a result, "Wait for the Healing" and "If You Have to Go Away" both seem odd to me to this day. Which is a shame because they are great pop songs.

And I can't leave out the one rocker, "All Right." This song of faith perfectly balances out some of the doubt.
