from daring to hope that it will one day be restored. It s the recognition that any pain we now feel is somehow inseparable
from the joy that was intended for us. Light For The Lost Boy pulses with the hurt of the human condition, it s a grief permeated
with light and hope and beauty and love.
Andrew Peterson s journey as an artist, author and disciple is one that he s long attempted to make openly and in community,
using his songs and stories as an invitation to others walking the same road. Light For The Lost Boy artfully and stirringly
documents the last couple years of that journey with his children, and in so doing, is likely to give thousands of new listeners a
point of connection with his music.

Instead, I have found my favorite album of 2012, and possibly my favorite Andrew Peterson album of them all. I consider Andrew Peterson the best songwriter in Christian music today, so the 5 star score seems barely sufficient.
I would prefer that listeners discover for themselves every nugget of goodness contained in these songs. I will simply say that every one of these 10 tracks has a line (or three) so true, so powerful, or just so well written, that it could be framed and put on the wall. Peterson's way with words has found a new depth, a new high, and there is no going back now.
Musically, this is, by far, Peterson's most epic work this side of "Behold the Lamb of God," and it features a sound that attempts to match the richness of his words. I am not saying I am ready to give up the comparatively simple folk style of his past records, but this new work is a true feast for the ears, without ever compromising the clarity or integrity of the lyrics. The single, "Rest Easy," is probably one of the more simple arrangements on the album, and there is more going on even in it than in many of Peterson's songs. This is good, good stuff.
After several listens, one evident fact is that this very generous album will give back as much as the listener puts in. Its layers will be revealed with each listen.Read more ›
This one is no exception. The lyrics are outstanding and helpful for Christians who want to be strengthened in an intellectual, biblical way. These are not "7-11" songs (7 notes and 11 words repeated over and over). In this album, you'll find biblical themes like justification by faith alone, Christ's return, sin, the curse, Christian lament, creation, marriage, sadness, and joy. You won't be disappointed with the content of this album if you're looking for rich, biblical, and imaginative lyrics.
The reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because, in my opinion, the music isn't quite as good as Peterson's earlier work. The tempos of songs on this album are much faster than his previous albums. Peterson shines in the slower-to-middle tempo range - the folk style of his earlier albums complements his voice to make a perfect match. However, some of the music on this album is quite busy and hurried; there's a lot going on in these songs. There are some slower "old school Andrew" songs but a few are incredibly fast (i.e."Day by Day"). In fact, in some songs the music overpowers his voice and puts the lyric in the background rather than the foreground (i.e. "The Cornerstone", which is a very odd blend of music styles). Maybe my critique here is that the music has a little more "pop" music in it than Andrew's earlier albums (again, that's my opinion). Or maybe this album has more drums on it than the earlier ones. Or perhaps there is too much background music and not enough vocals.Read more ›
