Editorial Reviews

Light For The Lost Boy emerged as a chronicle of the ache that comes from deeply loving something that has been lost, and
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.

Light for the Lost Boy sounds immediately new and different, especially for someone who has cherished every one of Peterson's albums to this point. This newness is exciting, and at first also a little scary. My ears have become so accustomed to the sound of Andrew Peterson's music that I was almost preparing myself for a let down after the first few moments of the first song, "Come Back Soon".

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.

While I'm not a fan of contemporary Christian music, I do appreciate Andrew Peterson's work because it is deep, rich, theologically robust, and dripping with biblical imagery (contrary to most CCM). His music is not cotton candy for the consumer! That's why I own all of AP's albums.

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.

Wow, what can I say? I don't know why Andrew Peterson isn't better known in the Christian music industry, except perhaps because his lyrics take a few good, hard listens to really be understood. He seems to be a poet at heart, and he has a knack for colorful imagery that belies a deep wisdom and knowledge of God. His music is folksy and his voice is soothing, but what really strikes me are the words. If you listen only casually, you get comfortable, light guitar and a sweet voice; if you listen deeply and work out the meaning to the lyrics, you get wisdom and advice that is, for me at least, uplifting and refreshing. This album came for me at a time when I was beat down and exasperated, confused and hurt, and it was like a salve on my emotional wounds. The first listen reduced me to tears, the second gave me strength to carry on, and subsequent listens revealed the quiet, contemplative wisdom of someone who has spent time thinking about things, questioning things. This may not be exactly what you need at exactly the moment you need it, but it was for me; and it was proof that God does, indeed, move in our lives.

Andrew Peterson has done it again... I can't think of another living soul who is able to weave together melody and lyrics as movingly as he regularly does. For returning listeners, Andrew's trademark authenticity will remind them of why they were first drawn to his music. For new listeners, be prepared to discover a new awareness of the aching beauty of God, Christ, salvation, creation, and new creation.
