A Kid's Review
This review is from: Awaken (Audio CD)
I never considered buying a Natalie Grant album before but after hearing the whole thing of "The Real Me" on the internet I knew I had to get this album!

"Intro (The Awakening)" is a very good way to start off the album-very high quality. It starts off with some violin on a radio and then a moving orchestra layers on top. I don't think the pop rock sounding "Awaken" fits in to well after this magnificemnt intor, but it is a great song (Listen to it when you wake up in the morning!). The more aggresive sounding pop song "Something Beautiful" has cool "Yeah, yeah"s and an encouraging message-that your life is made for something beautiful. "What are you waiting for" continues the pop rock feel and tells us to get up and make a difference. the piano-orchestra based "The Real Me" comes in next. it is sucha favorite-I get moved every time I hear it. Check out her book of the same name. This song and "Home" are worth the album alone.

"Another Day" is a road trip sounding song-the chorus is awesome! I love it! The next ballad "Home" is beautiful-is you like "The Real me" you'll like this song. It is good for everyone-a good message. "Captured" is a pop song with slightly praiseish lyrics. The smash hit single-another ballad-"Held" will minister to a lot of people. It was written out of lost but tells us through it all "we'll be held".

"You move me" is similar to "Captured". It has more praise lyrics and is cool, but doesn't really catch my attention. "Make Me Over" is very cool-about asking God to transform your life. Again, great strings and a fabulous ballad. This is good to listen to after you've messed up.

The more upbeat "live for today" slides in, flowing along in the chorus. I would have skipped the last track-the old school sounding "Bring it all together". Despite this little let down, you'll love this album. Highlights: "The Real Me" "Home" and "Held"
