Mr. Millard has made a very fine album! He has taken the older hymns, and made them even better without losing the integrity of the original music. Amazing music here! I have purchased this CD for myself, and as gifts for other people. Everyone who has heard this CD remark on its beauty. It is wonderful praise music!
It's hard to take what isn't broken and successfully fix it anyway, but this CD does an excellent job of honoring faultless original melodies and lyrics and rewrapping them in newer musical styles. I wish these were on the radio. And, I love that I can discern both the melody and harmony lines, and can therefore sing along to either. Thank you! When does No. 3 come out?
I was cleaning the house the first time I put this CD into the player. Of course, I was blasting the volume because I was alone. When my husband came home, he was smiling, and went over and restarted the CD from the beginning again. Oh, and did I mention he is not saved yet? Even he liked the bluesy feel of it. Thank you for making this CD
I like the old hymns and wanted to find a CD with them on it. what I got with Bart Millard's CD was a mix of the old with a new twist. I was surprised at how much I liked the spin Bart put on the classic Hymns. this is a great CD and I would highly recommend it.
