Reviews - What do customers think about Lay It Down?
Great Second CD by Knapp Jun 27, 2006
Jennifer Knapp is definitely missed on the Contemporary Christian music scene. Her Christian-folk music is engaging, and draws the listener into a place where soft, medium, and fast tempo songs draw the listener toward God in a way that is authentic and moving.
Songs like the title cut and Little More seem plaintive, evoking the times all Christians have when they need reassurance and comfort. Knapp has been taking some time off for the past few years. We will all be blessed when she returns.
Great Lyrics, Great Sound Jul 13, 2005
Jennifer Knapp does an awesome job again in her second album. Like 'Kansas', 'Lay it Down' has deep, moving lyrics combined with Jennifer's incredible voice. Her throaty voice is a delight to the ears. Her sound has a folk music feel to it.
I highly recommend this album.
The Melissa Etheridge of Christian Music Oct 24, 2004
Jennifer Knapp is an excellent musician, somehow managing to spin folk, rock, and Christian into one musical category. She has a distinct voice that is just gritty enough to grab your attention and soft enough to make it oh-so pleasant. I haven't heard a song by this artist that has fallen short yet.
While I haven't done any research on Knapp, I would have to guess she has studied music for a while. She seems to know how to write music and lyrics that stir the soul. Her songs flow quite well, and she seems at ease performing with some of the top artists in the Christian music industry.
Ya can't go wrong with this CD. It's a keeper!
See ya next review.
Bubblegum Fluff, Lyrically empty, do not apply! Aug 22, 2004
Let me say that Jennifer Knapp is my favorite artist at the time. I'll split this review into 2 sections. Music, and Lyrics.
In this genre of music, there's no comparison to Jennifer Knapp. Deep lyrics, simple truths, and 'poetic enough to be beautiful, but not so that you can't understand it' all describe her lyrics. They are truly of God. God is in every one of them. (As opposed to some other artists who will remain nameless, who sing about 'Sadie's Hawkens Dance' in his 'Khakki Pants')
Even if you are not into this type of music, if you are a christian, you will probly enjoy this CD just because of the lyrics.
A little more had one line that really made me a real fan. "Unearth this holiness that I CAN"T EARN!" We can't earn his holiness, we accept it. A simple truth, that hardly anybody gets.
Lay it down was about asking for forgiveness, Usher me down was just plain beautiful. Unfortunently I don't know where he's 'Ushering' her down to, but still, I like the song. LOL
This CD has a theme of God's grace, another simple truth that needs to be pounded into our heads. :~)
Jennifer Knapp wrote all the songs but one, which made me like her all the more.
Jennifer's music was great. It was rocky, and a little 'countryish'. I love the mix, and I love the variety. She has songs to Rock to, and songs to relax to. She writes beautiful songs, whether rocky or peaceful!
The strings and orchastra she used were 'real' violins and such. Not some lame synthasizer (Unless it was a synthasizer, in which case it's the most convising one ever!)
My only real complaint was that the album was to short. 10 tracks filling up 36 minutes. But that's a problem most 'rocky' singers have. Oh well. :~)
Very uplifting and soul touching Jan 26, 2004
I just have such a great feeling when I listen to this CD. I'm so grateful to have such good music to listen to with a great message and such a great musician.
