This cd is very good. Matt Maher is very pleasant to listen to. His lyrics are very scriptural and have an honest attitude. The instrumentation is awesome and it just impresses me that a lot of the instrumentation is Matt playing! He has a few songs on the cd that feature Audrey Assad which was a totally great surprise! Their duet, "Garden", is really beautiful with amazing harmony and it reminds me of the music from the movie "Once". Plus the instruments on the song are Matt playing guitar and Audrey playing piano, SO impressive! The price I got was AWESOME, it was the best price I found online or in a store and shipping wasn't bad either!
The only thing I didn't expect was that the instrumentation seems to be more piano than acoustic guitar although there is guitar.
This is my favorite right now. Every song is so full of meaning, and the music is so full of inspiration. Matt is a talented treasure and obviously inspired by God. Thinking of buying 10 and giving every one of my friends this awesome Christmas gift
An excellent CD! The first half is somewhat upbeat and will definitely put an extra spring in your step, while the second half is more worship-oriented and is good for simply praising God. In fact, there are a number of songs where it sounds like Matt's voice is almost completely unedited; but instead of sounding bad, it gives the track a more "raw" feel and, in my opinion, makes it all the better! This album would makes a great addition to the collection of any CCM fan!
