I have to say that if you are a fan of Chris's style (I refer often to him as the James Taylor of Christian music), that this is Chris's best work to date. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys Chris Rice. "Spare An Angel" touches me deeply, in that it makes me think of someone near and dear to my heart who is experiencing a tremendous amount of stress and needs the Lord. Chris, I didn't think you would be able to top "Past The Edges", but I was so wrong. Keep up the good and faithful work!
I have been taking ballet for a while and this year I did a solo toCome to Jesus. This song really touched me and (hopefully) the audience. I am very thankful that Chris Rice wrote this song, it's meant a lot to me.
This is my first brush with Chris Rice music, fueled by my passion for the sensational "Untitled Hymn (Come To Jesus)", a true classic in the waiting. While there are several other nice cuts, this album is weighed down with silly lyrics and over-reaching songs (especially "Other Side of the Radio").
It's True Chris's music may not appear to be over worshipping. That is how I viewed his music when I first heard it, however, if you really pay attention he is more of a comparative writer/composer. His songs are indeed spiritual but are done in a way of parables. He is a poet to music with his very own unique and gifted style.
