This gem came out at the end of 2005 and although not quite the best album of the year rather preposterously claimed by CCM magazine it is undoubtedly a very fine set which shows the American singer/songwriter at the top of her game. Sara's voice, always haunting, is here at times positively goose-bump-inducing, due to producer Brown Bannister's close mic-ing, while the stacked harmonies on songs like "You Are The Sun" are breathtaking and worthy of 2nd Chapter Of Acts at their best. Throughout the piano is the principle instrument and with some of Nashville's finest session players bringing out the nuances of her melodies and with always thought-provoking lyrics which more than once take the form of story telling narratives this is pop of undeniable intelligence. The songs "When It Was Over" and "It's Going To Be Alright" have already been turntable hits on Cross Rhythms. If by any chance you've missed out on this one I suggest you get your order in now.

The critically acclaimed singer/songwriter's fourth record label release.

Candidly truthful and compassionately hopeful, the fourth release from acclaimed singer-songwriter Sara Groves is another creative expression of faith and relationships.
This new project echoes Sara's first release, 'Conversations', in its intimate and honest lyrical journey. Sara explains, 'The album is about the kingdom of God, how it really does exist, and is as real as your car or your family, your problems. If we can figure it out, God has invited us to live in His kingdom in the midst of our regular existence... These songs are about the beautiful character that grows out of seeing people through by loving God, and loving people.'
This is Sara's bridge-building statement to fellow people pointing to the adventurous, transcending, life-changing Kingdom story. As a talented singer-songwriter, Sara offers an insightful and accessible view into the complexities of Christianity being worked out in a fallen world.
Songs include 'Add To The Beauty', 'Just Showed Up', 'When It Was Over', 'You Are The Sun' and seven more!

I heard this album this week in church and I was really impressed with the 'Beauty' of the songs and the sentiment.

God Bless you Sara
