Editorial Reviews

2010 release from the contemporary Christian singer/songwriter. Twelve new songs pack this new MWS project with subject matter that is sure to pierce your heart, backed by a relevant music journey. Smitty says, ''These songs on this project are hopeful, anthemic and healing, musically and lyrically. I had a lot I wanted to say and the songs on this album allowed me to open up and do just that.''

I'm having some difficulty accurately relaying my emotional response to this new record by Michael W. Smith. It would be cliche to call it visceral, although that's exactly what it is. I would say that it is a radical departure, an amazing, well-crafted work, from an artist whose been around several decades. Michael W. Smith reveals his vulnerabilities, his overtly paternal affectations in a not-so-distinct, somewhat somber, yet upbeat, almost disturbingly passionate manner. I highly recommend this album.

Let me open by saying that I have every album Michael has ever made. That's right...everything from "Project" up through this current offering. He was my inspiration to continue piano lessons as a kid, and was an early inspiration in songwriting. I've seen him in concert several times and think he is a genuine guy and a great entertainer.

The Smitty/Wayne Kirkpatrick songwriting duo was incredible. The lyrics fit the music, and still carried a moving message. Since Michael has started writing with others, I think the songwriting has suffered. Musically this album is rich and powerful...which is Michael's work, no doubt. But the lyrics just don't fit anymore. It's like he is trying to get these deep messages across, then copying someone's words onto music that doesn't complement it. On Wonder (Not Far Away) Michael is talking the verses, "Everybody has enough to bear / and everyone feels the strain / there's a lot that really isn't fair / but it isn't more than you can take." Not a bad topic for a song, but you can't just take lyrics and say them over some music. Michael did a similar song a decade ago with Kirkpatrick lyrics called "Give Me Love" but the quirky lyrics fit the rapid-fire delivery style. Not so with Wonder.

There is just a lot of "talking" going on, and not singing. The message on "Leave" is lost because there is really no melody at all. It's like reading a poem with music behind it. The trick to pop songwriting is to take words and craft them into a soaring melody - the words and the melody should be inseparable. Think of Michael's earlier works: Place in This World, Give it Away (perfect lyrical fit with that song), Secret Ambition, I'll Lead You Home, Never Been Unloved. These songs soar because the lyrics are lifted up by the melodies.

I appreciate criticism of an artist that is straight forward and musicially based. I don't have the same appreciation for criticism that points multiple CDs backwards and laments "that was my favorite one and you aren't turning that 12 song cd into a 24 song cd with your latest work." Artists stay fresh by stretching their limits. However you define this CD, it is musicially excellent. If you want that Michael W Smith from the past dancing all over the stage to a disco beat like he did thirty years ago; buy the DVD. Don't drive other listeners away with the statement that this isn't like a past CD and therefore is no good. There is not a bad song on this CD. The opening song is not even a song written by Michael. It is a piece by a little known band CarPark North. And it is a great song. That he even knows of this band demonstrates his breadth as an ever learning and growing artist. Michael has never had a "spectacular" voice. But he has always been capable of using to full capacity the pipes that he has and he uses every bit of of the emotional range of them including full tilt on this CD. More importantly he knows how to write great songs. My personal tastes don't run in the electronically driven production of his CD Rain, but that doesn't lead me to opine that the CD is bad and getting thrown out of my collection. Like other reviewers I have every CD he has ever written, including his multiple Christmas CDs and his orchestral CD. They are all splendid. I have my favorites which means I rank some higher than others. But they are all remarkable works. He is a unique, special artist that seems to have a musicial well that never goes dry. The guy is phenominal. Buy this CD. It is an excellent set of songs, well produced and remarkably performed by an artist who is still growing, focused and driven.

I have all of his albums, and this is my least favorite. Michael used to be poetic with his writing. This album seems like he was sitting on a park bench and thinking to himself and then decided to put some music to it. I guess the days of The Big Picture and Eye 2 I are long gone. This is an extremely musically talented man, but he's lost a few steps.

This is another great collection of recordings that will reach your sole and you can feel a closer relationship with God. This is a must for any person putting together a Christian music collection. I did not receive a discount on this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. For almost all my purchases I rely on reviews before deciding whether or not I make the purchase. I tend to ignore the reviews about a product where the reviewer raves about an item without giving clear reasons for their conclusions. I likewise pay close attention to reviews that are critical of an item. Customers that are unhappy tend to have a greater motivation to leave a review than does a happy customer. Customers leaving a critical review are often writing out of frustration because they had a bad experience, and they will often point out concerns that are valid that positive reviewers may often glaze over or even ignore. With all reviews, I encourage you to read between the lines. If the review is totally generic and the words could be written for any product then I suggest that you ignore that review. I find reviews often quite valuable, so I strive to leave valuable reviews. If my review helped you in anyway, please take a second to click “Yes” this review helped me.
