"Baptize My Mind" gently reflects the truthsof John 12:21-28. "Your Love is Strong" and"In My Arms" tenderly reflect the security ofbeing His child and knowing the loving kindness of Our Heavenly Father.
I'm a very picky music listener when it comes to contemporary music. Jon Foreman's solo recordings are both genuine and artistic without being over-produced. It's obvious he's not making an effort to be played on the top 10 of the local Christian "pop" station, but looking to create art that actually comes from his voice. I found the God-centered songs to be both encouraging and convicting, and the love-centered songs to be beautiful without edging toward promoting anything sinful. I've been blessed through these songs.
Dear goodness. Both of these EPs are beautiful. They really complete the fall and winter EPs. I've listened to all of them at least ten times. This isn't the Jon Foreman you're used to, but this is an amazing work of genius.
These CDs are amazing if you're into the acoustic indie rock type music. The songs are honest and pure about cituations that happen in the world and in Jon's life. My favorite song on Spring is "Your Love is Strong" which is the sequel to "Let Your Love Be Strong" on Switchfoot's Oh! Gravity album. It's a wonderful song about how God loves us. Summer, by far, is my favorite EP of all four. My favorite song on there is "A Mirror is Harder to Hold". As I see it, the song is hard to understand but I believe the concept is that he (Jon Foreman) doesn't want God or his wife to leave him. He's talking about his life in the past and how he's not "a stranger at lonely moments". This CD is probably meant for those who like indie rock music and/or who like honest and pure songs. But be warned! Jon's sound is COMPLETELY different from Switchfoot's sound. Don't be fooled!!! I love Jon Foreman. God bless him
