if you are tired of all the typical christmas music, i recommend this cd. the more you listen to it, the more it grows on you. the 2nd track is so beautiful, and that's coming from someone who is not really a big amy grant fan.
Song #5 Jun 23, 2006
I ordered this cd for two reasons: 1. I love Christmas music. 2. I really love Christine Dente (Out of the Grey). The cd is really nice, but song #5, "Prepare a Place" is GORGEOUS! I play it over and over and over...you get the drift. Christine sings a duet with Michael W. Smith and WOW! Do they blend well! If you can sing, add the third part harmony and turn it up. It will give you goose-bumps to hear the "trio"! I say buy the cd if only for "Prepare a Place". It is worth the whole price!
Takes Some Getting Used To But Growing On Me Dec 7, 2004
Rocketown has quickly become my favorite label because it's home of some of my favorite artists. When I first heard about this CD, I was excited because it would combine some of my favorite artists with my favorite genre, Christmas music. And, based on the Christmas themed songs they'd already written, this would be a great project.
Then I bought it. The first time I heard it, I was highly disappointed. Probably the biggest problem I had with it is the high level of involvement of Charlie Peacock. While many think he's great, I'm not especially found of most of his work. While I still think it could have been better, it continues to grow on me.
There are some great songs on here. "God is With Us," sung by Amy Grant, is great. In fact, it's better then her last Christmas CD. Wayne Kirkpatrick does a good cover of "Welcome to Our World." (In fact, that's another flaw with the disc. Where's Chris Rice?) And the covers of traditional carols are great, especially the haunting version of "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel."
Probably my biggest complaints are a couple of the original songs. "Prepare a Place" featuring Michael W. Smith and Christine Dente falls flat lyrically. Musically, it's beautiful, however. When I heard Taylor Sorensen and Alathea were teaming up for a song, I knew it would be interesting. And I was right. "Love Came Just in Time" looks at Christmas from the perspective of Simeon and Anna. While an interesting take and fun tune, it doesn't quite live up to it's potential, either.
Not all the original songs are bad, however. "Sing Gloria" is a great song of overflowing praise. Although I must ask what the deal with one line is. ("Like you're living in a house that has no ceiling?") And "Christmas Kind of Feeling" is a great celebration of the fun of the season.
All told, this CD is worth getting. I'm just a little disappointed that it didn't live up to what I thought it could have been.
