Time Tested Dec 11, 2006
To me, great music is great music, regardless of genre. Songs you hear 20 years later still sound as good as the first time you heard them - and every song on this album falls into that category. I do not know who wrote these songs, but every one is superb. "Lonely River" is the best track to me, but I once drove from Maine to Maryland and back (1200 miles) and this was the only CD I played for the entire trip (despite having 30 or so in my CD case). The true test is that every single person who has ridden with me while this CD was playing has asked who it was, and has subsequently bought the album (to my knowledge). I just wish Susan could have followed it up with something as good - maybe this is her magnum opus.
A great album - never gets old Oct 24, 2006
Susan has a unique, strong voice that draws you in. I've had this album for around 10 years and the music is still fresh. I hope that Susan records more music - she has a freshness and different sound that is much appreciated.
I could've met her, but she's good Jun 21, 2005
I bought this one when I was in college. I've got the privilege to see Susan Ashton in concert. I didn't get to meet her, yet she signed autographs for me. It's a shame that she's not making any new music right now.
Susan's Best Ever Album!!!! Apr 3, 2005
I wish she would do another one like this album. It was fantastic and I play it all the time!! I love this album!
'I'm Lost in a Whirlwind...' Sep 18, 2004
'...so this is how it feels, spinning like a wheel'-words from Spinning Like a Wheel written by Susan Ashton and Wayne Kirkpatrick.
I still love this recording. When I first began to listen to christian radio, they played You Move Me and Blind Side over and over again. The radio station went under several years ago, but I still listen to this cassette even though it's 8 years old! I like it better than Vol. 1 of the best of Susan Ashton. She sings two songs written by Sheryl Crow, All Kinds of People and Hundreds of Tears which is one of my many favorites on this cd. Amy Grant helped write Send a Message, another favorite. My absolute favorite song is Lonely River, an extended metaphor comparing characteristics of a winding river to the journey God sets before us in our journey to our ultimate ending to our home in heaven with God. Wayne Kirkpatrick and Michael W. Smith wrote those lyrics: 'Lonely river, is there a place your running to, or is it something that you're running from? Is it hope that keeps you going, is it faith that makes you strong? Lonely river, lonely river, running on...' It's a beautiful song. It ends with: 'Lonely river, I think I am a lot like you, winding on in hopes to find the sea...drifting towards our destinies, the arm of God is long. And I believe that through this journey 'til we're finally home, lonely river, we will never run alone.'

Matthew 28:10 lo, I am with you alway, EVEN unto the end of the world. Amen
