There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My biggest beef is that it does seem a little short. This is probably because out of 11 tracks, one of them is just a little over two minutes, and there is one instrumental (but that's okay because it is amazing!). All in all, though, it's pretty great.
The single "That Was Then, This is Now" starts off the album with some great declarative statements about who we once were as children of darkness, but who we now are in Christ Jesus. The perfect song to start of the album to get you excited about it.
"This is the Day" is another great track, and it is followed by one of my favorites on the cd- "No More". Josh says it is based on Romans 8:1- "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus". I just love the freeing redemptive quality about the lyrics. The chorus says "No more guilt, no more shame, no more thinking I can't change. Who I was is dead and gone, who I am is moving on. Saved by grace, held by love because of what the cross has done. You've blown away the prison doors! Hallelujah, God, I am condemned no more!" It's my prediction this one will become the next single.
Then we have the slow, and very short (2 min, 17 sec) song "The Songs I Need to Hear". Not my favorite song on the album, but I like the transparency in it.
"Blown Away" will blow you away! Well, maybe. This is another one of my favorites... it's about how we need to slow down and just realize what a wonderful world we live in and take time to be thankful and grateful for God's "extraordinary grace every ordinary day".
Then comes the instrumental "Ode to Joy" Love this one because of the awesome acoustic guitar playing and drums.
"Say Yes" is about how we just need to stop refusing to go where God wants us to and just do it, knowing He'll be with us, to "say yes" to Him. Pretty good song, though definitely not my favorite.
Then "House Divided"- another great song about a person fighting with their two natures, their old self in sin and their new self in living for Christ. A great picture of struggling with sin or doing the right thing that I think a lot of believers can relate two.
"Don't Let Go" is next. Not my favorite, but okay.
Then "Coming Home"... an awesome "prodigal son" type song about a person who has strayed so far but is tired of looking for answers, so now he is coming home. Another favorite of mine.
And to finish we have the lovely "Grace Upon Grace" which is a reflection on all the God has done for us by pouring out His "grace upon grace" on our lives. A great one to finish the album.
And that's it folks- "That Was Then, This is Now" by Josh Wilson. I pointed out my favorites ("That was Then, This is Now", "No More", "Blown Away" and "Coming Home") and now it is up to you to discover your own. How? By buying this album and giving it a good listen to! (You guessed it!)
