One word sums up this cd
Awesome! I purchased this cd for one song, Reaching for You, but the entire cd is great. Can't wait until they offer, Reaching for You, on soundtrack. This song really touched my spirit, and reflects where I'm at right now in my own life. I love songs that speak to me. Lincoln Brewster does it again. He has had some out of this world worship and praise songs, not to mention he's a highly gifted guitar player.

Music For Everyone
Our family has a fairly diverse range of listening preferences, and itÃ¢ÂÂs rare that we find a CD that the entire family enjoys. My little ones and I tend to enjoy music that is a bit Ã¢ÂÂharderÃ¢ÂÂ than my husband prefers, but even though Lincoln Brewster employs old-school electric guitar solos and riffs in his compositions, my husband still appreciates and enjoys the songs he has written.
This is our first Brewster album, though heÃ¢ÂÂs been on the Christian music scene for some time. Clearly a seasoned musician and worship leader, Brewster provides solid musicianship with clear Christian themes that itÃ¢ÂÂs nearly impossible not to Ã¢ÂÂget intoÃ¢ÂÂ as a believer. My first take on this disc is that BrewsterÃ¢ÂÂs musical style is fairly straight forward, it is definitely electric-guitar heavy which always brings to mind Ã¢ÂÂ80s rock, but thatÃ¢ÂÂs not a bad thing in my mind.
The CD opens with some up-beat, get-inspired tracks that are always helpful to pop on when I have a project around the house I need to work on. Some of my favorites from the disc are the more melodic, thoughtful pieces: Ã¢ÂÂMade For YouÃ¢ÂÂ, Ã¢ÂÂWhom Shall I FearÃ¢ÂÂ (includes Kari Jobe), and Ã¢ÂÂMore Than AmazingÃ¢ÂÂ which is arguably the Ã¢ÂÂdonÃ¢ÂÂt missÃ¢ÂÂ track of the album.
Ã¢ÂÂShout for JoyÃ¢ÂÂ is an enthusiastic celebration of redemption through the love of God Ã¢ÂÂ very upbeat, and another not to be missed track. IÃ¢ÂÂd like to see this track getting a lot of play in worship services, itÃ¢ÂÂs accessible across the generations (not too guitar heavy) and so appreciative of GodÃ¢ÂÂs nature Ã¢ÂÂ I love it.
My husband is SO picky when it comes to music, so I was so thankful when he said, Ã¢ÂÂI like this guy, he writes nice songs.Ã¢ÂÂ That is high praise coming from him, so this CD will be in regular rotation as an album that everyone in our family can enjoy together!
