If there was such a thing as a CCM version of Trivial Pursuits then this is one man who is destined to become the answer to the question, "Who was the first artist Michael W Smith signed to his new Rocketown label?" And now you'll be able to answer "Chris Rice"! For his name is the name to remember which shouldn't be too hard because on the strength of this sonically beautiful debut, he'll be around for a while! Rice has managed to develop a piano-based, mellow, smooth style that is both compelling and relaxing. Mainly acoustic in nature the mellow moments here are the best. The closing tune "I Need A Hero" is exquisitely vulnerable (and vocally reminiscent of England's John Martyn), "Hallelujahs" and "My Tree" (a great story song by the way illustrating the unconditional love of Christ) are also on the quieter side without descending into melancholy! On the other side of the coin, there's the intriguing "Sometimes Love" and the kookie "Clumsy" is a perfect piece of groovy acoustic pop with a powerful encouragement to allow God to complete his work. Mr Rice is even given the chance to rock out on "Good News" but generally he remains unruffled throughout this album. Beneath the perfect acoustic pop stylings, there is a songwriting strength that will hit paydirt with a stonking album in the future. For the moment, this is a good strong debut promising much!

What a great debut for Chris in the summer of 1997. I will never forget hearing the first song from this cd for radio airplay, "Deep Enough to Dream" (the title track). Who doesn't dream or think about Heaven. The song "Clumsy" was the second song I heard on ccm radio. The anthem "Welcome to our World" so wonderfully written and sung as well; also covered by Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant. The cd photos for the front and back really comment the title. Way to go hit it with this one. GOD Bless!-Don
