No doubt, this is not your typical Becker CD. That is the only reason I gave the four stars. It calls the faithful fan to stretch a bit to find prayer's light in each song. But if you've ever experienced matrimony's reality check, or found yourself in the middle of much belated singlehood, or a midlife crisis, you will totally get this CD. It's the prayer of one that has sunk everything into an intimate walk with Christ and has just realized there really is no turning back; the cost will be uncovered. If you still don't get, read her book "Coming Up For Air". Then just maybe...they might become your prayers too. There sure did mine.
I am a fan of M. Becker's music. This CD is inspirational. I teach Bible studies, and have found the lyrics coming to mind as I prepare for the study. At this price, I am ready to purchase a copy for everyone of my ladies as a completion gift for the study. I have frequently been moved to tears. Thank you Margaret!
Am I being to quick to respond here?Being a supporter of Ms Beckers ability to go with the flow, I was well disappointed with this album.Too heavy a reliance on what I (personal opinion)would call a rock sound. Too late in the day, with the middle four or so tracks, which did allow a certain amount of reflection, thought and praise.Tracks on "the hunger stays", (Look me in the eye/Never be an Angel)albeit more guitar and instrumental, were more soul searching and I think will be more difficult to eclipse as an album.Sorry Margaret just being honest.
