While it's not terribly complicated, FFH's brand of hooky pop, blended harmonies and to-the-heart lyrics carries a genuine appeal. And FFH sticks with its sincere approach (with a slight twist) on the group's fourth major-label release. Sure lead singer Jeromy Deibler and guitarist Michael Boggs have a knack for writing great guitar-driven melodies ("It's a Good Day," "Ready for a World," "His Love Goes on Forever"). But FFH now leans heavily on piano as a foundation. From the opening "You Found Me" and "Good to Be Free," to the hymn-like "If Not for Christ," to the closing "Here I Am," the group does more than just tap its creative toes into the water. With impressive maturity, the group boasts lyrics that reflect an evangelistic perspective, while not sugar-coating the sometimes harsh realities of the Christian life in the spotlight. It's that earnest transparency that makes FFH a winner once again. --Michael Lyttle

Inspirational Lyrics, Pleasant Sound Mar 27, 2006
FFH really does a great job in composing lyrically solid songs. Their music is certainly focused on Jesus.
The sound is one that is very light. They have several very good tracks on this CD. I particularly like 'You Found Me' and 'Ready to Fly'. 'It's A Good Day' is also a very catchy tune.
I generally prefer something with a bit more oomph, but this is a nice sound. My daughter is very fond of FFH so their sound can certainly be a draw for teens as well.
Great Christian album Aug 3, 2005
To be completely honest, I usually don't really go in for the Christian Contemporary Music. I don't really like listening to the mainstream Christian bands because of the stereotypical sounds, and I'm very particular about music in general. FFH, however, is one I really like. Sure, they have a predictable sound, but the fact is it's a good one. It's positive and uplifting, no matter what song you may be listening to. I can't think of a favorite song right off the bat since they're all good IMHO, but I really enjoyed "Waltz for Jennifer". It's such a beautiful and innocent love song, especially when compared to the "you're so hot, I want your body" message that's in some (of course, not all) "love" songs today. "I'm so glad that God made me for you and you for me." The other FFH albums are very good too.
Awesome Album by an Awesome Band Jul 13, 2005
I love this CD. It is very honoring to God, very pure, powerfull, and a whole lot of fun.
Ready to Fly is one of the best songs of the year, and that is just a bonus, because this album would have been awesome even without it.
Definately buy this, it will motivate you spiritually.
