Some Christian mainstream acts spend entire careers aiming for crossover appeal. Call Brian Littrell a little different because he is going against the grain. This Backstreet Boy has traded--for a moment at least--international glitz for a trip back home to his roots, spiritual roots that is, with Welcome Home. It's a journey that clearly resonates strongly with Littrell because he has released an album full of depth, reflection, diversity, and celebration. At least partial credit goes to producer Dan Muckala who has taken a vocal talent, stretched his boundaries, and combined with the artist to usher out a beautifully rich-sounding release. Starting firmly with his proclamation of faith ("My Answer Is You"), Littrell pours his heart and soul into a wonderful collection of material that ranges from hard-edged pop ("I'm Alive") to R&B/light jazz ("We Lift You Up") to classic Southern gospel ("Jesus Loves Me"). Littrell also offers several nods to his Backstreet days with his silky smooth vocals on "You Keep Givin' Me" and "Grace of My Life." There's a lot to be excited about with this release but perhaps two of the highlights come with the gripping "Gone Without Goodbye" and "Angels and Heroes." The former is a heart-wrenching tale of sharing the burden of grief with those who have lost loved ones tragically, while the latter builds on the ministry motif by suggesting that all of us are wired to be angels, if we so choose, in this lifetime. Littrell's transparency of heart and passionate vocals will make believers even out of the most hardened cynic. Welcome home Brian, we're glad you're back. --Michael Lyttle

Brian's solo album is a blessing and his passion for God shines so brightly on this album! He could have turned to non christian music but instead stayed close to his heavenly father!

Contemporary songs mixed with songs of praise for God and jesus make for one fantastic album! If you are christian I think you will love it and even if you are NOT a believer in God you will STILL enjoy it! Fantastic!

Brian Littrell, a member of the successful boyband Backstreet Boys, finally decides to release a solo album, just like fellow band member Nick Carter did a few years ago. On "Welcome Home" Brian proves what we already knew, that he's an exellent singer but also a good composer, Brian wrotes half of the songs. Most songs are confessional and deeply personal that deals with love, religion and past experiences. Being mostly a "Christian" Album it's obviusly diffrent from the pop/rock sound of Backstreet Boys but still it's a pretty good album. Brian's purpuse of this solo expriment was undoubltly to record something personal where he could perform something that he never would have been able to with the band, it won't become a hit and neither of the songs will get airplay on the commercial radio stations, but that is beyond the point. After over a decade with the Backstreet Boys he finally releases a personal solo effort where he tackles his religious belives and past experiences and makes a album of it all. For those that likes the Backstreet Boys, this could be something interesting to purchase but also for those that bought Nick Lachey's "What's Left of Me". Best songs here are "My Answer Is You" that sound a little like the neo sound of the band, the title track that is a catchy midtempo, "I'm Alive" that is contemporary rock and the jazzy "We Lift You Up" that gives his beautiful voice justice and a little help from backround choirs. Regardless of the fact that this aint a commerical pop album, it's a good purchase from a great vocalist that finally released his first solo album. 4/5 stars.

this cd is really inspirational and makes you realize things about life that you would have never thought of..i have loved brian ever since the backstreet boys started..so obviously i would love the album..but it's an amazing cd other wise. i'd recommend it to anyone whose a fan of the backstreet boys or if you like slow meaningful songs. it's cute how he incorporated his son onto the cd.. and i love how some songs are accappella.. that shows that he can ACTUALLY sing..if you don't already own it.. then i hope you do go out and get it because it's worth it.

When I bought this album I had no idea who Brian Littrell was except a burgeoning Christian artist. Then, one day, while reading up on him at his Web site I found out he is a former Backstreet Boy. I read his testimony and was very impressed. I believe his music backs up his beliefs. This album is very good. My favorite songs are Welcome Home, Over My Head, and I'm Alive. Gone Without Goodbye is a good song but very sad, so I can only listen to it occasionally.

I highly recommend this album to anyone that enjoys contemporary Christian music that draws your nearer to the Lord.

While this isn't normally the kind of music I listen to or like, I love the BSB's so thought I would check this out. It's actually very good although quite short, and it's a fantastic debut solo cd.

Gone Without Goodbye, Wish and Over My Head are my favourites but actually he has done a good job on all songs here. This is proof that any of these talented guys could make it on their own - I would just like to hear mainstream music coming from them - because this style of music does not appeal to people quite as much as pop or r&b. Great debut though.

I brought this CD cause I'm a huge BSB fan, and I support all the boys! I also wanted to see what Brian's songs were like, when he's just the one singing! Lovely! Just lovely! The songs are sweet, and sound beautiful! Brian fans, get this CD! It's a great price, and it arrived fast! Brand new, never opened!

I was skeptical at first with this CD. Contemporary Christian isn't something I am interested in at all. But, I like BSB, Brian in particular, and gave it a shot. So glad I did. A couple of these songs wouldn't of sounded out of place on the last BSB album (Over You especially) and some are downright heart wrenching. I have listened to "Gone Without Goodbye" maybe 30 times since I have had this CD in the last couple of days, and it still chokes me up. It is without a doubt, THE most beautiful song ever. "Wish" is another good one. I am glad I checked this album out, and am looking forward to more.

Brian did an awesome job on this record. I love the song "Welcome Home", which is my favorite off the cd. Brian has the most amazing voice and I think he is the most talented out of all the Backstreet Boys. I think everyone should buy this cd and just really listen to it because it's beautiful. I can't wait for his tour so I can go see him in concert. With all those beautiful songs-I know that the concert will rock. Brian Littrell is a brilliant guy.
