This was the first Fernando Ortega album I listened to. I kept playing it over and over. My wife and I have probably listened to it a hundred times. It is artistically, technically and spiritually the best Christian album I have ever heard. I later went out and bought four more of his albums, and they are all great, but I still go back to this one.
Looking for Christian Meditation? This Is Your Music Nov 6, 2004
After seeing Fernando Ortega on Christian television, I went hunting for some of the songs I'd heard. As it turns out, I LOVE this CD, for meditation and contemplative time. Being a depressive sort, I go into my time, with the positive and uplifting "This Good Day", and am deep into sincere prayer, as I sing, with the CD, "Pass Me Not". By the time this CD is over, I'm relaxed, DE-stressed, and regrouped, ready to go on with whatever is to come. Therefore, if you're looking for something calming, soothing, and yet positive, this is the CD for you.
Pleasent, but kind of boring Apr 22, 2003
Home is better than Ortega's previous CDs, in that there are a few tracks with a faster beat and upbeat tune. His music tends toward the safer, "mild" worship sound that winds up putting you to sleep. This album, however, has some good stuff on it. "This Good Day", the first track, is a happy, upbeat song about thanking God for this good day, even if the day isn't that good after all. "Old Girl" is a milder, minor-key portrait of an old woman. The poetry is fine, for it paints pictures in your mind of the old, proud woman who nonetheless will pray for you. "On the Line" touched me, whether it is a combination of the lyrics or the melody, but I was surprised to find myself playing that track over and over. And then Virgina Rose is the Other Good Track. Upbeat with a strong country violin strain, I'm sure it will wind up on a Greatest Hits album sometime in the future. I consider the rest of the album "boring and tuneless", but then my tastes are inclined more toward Alternative.
If you're looking for an Ortega album with some good stuff on it, varied by his usual "quiet" style, then consider this album in your shopping.
