Reviewed by Lins Honeyman

Already receiving rave reviews, veteran CCM hitmaker Amy Grant's first for many a long year captures something of the spiritual, vocal and musical maturity that has come from over 30 years in the business. Whilst Grant has enlisted the help of some celebrity buddies (James Taylor on "Don't Try So Hard", Carole King on "Our Time Is Now" as well as Sheryl Crow and Eric Paslay on "Deep As It Is Wide"), their involvement is sufficiently low key not to take away from what is essentially another seasoned and skilled performance from the artist herself. With songs such as the evocative title track and the Springsteen-like opener "If I Could See (What The Angels See)" looking at things from a distanced heavenly perspective, this is a considered release that sees Grant tackle life's ups and downs in the reflective "Better Not To Know" and "Not Giving Up" with a combination of gritty realism and a sturdy faith whilst the stunningly poignant "Shovel In Hand" documents the brutal effect of sending young men into conflict - all of which makes this one of her most satisfying releases in her long career. Welcome back Amy.

A return to the CD racks for the CCM hitmaker.

As a teenager nearly 30 years ago, Amy Grant began embracing fans with a heartfelt singer-songwriter style mixing elements of pop, folk and country. As Contemporary Christian music's first major crossover success, she has earned three Multi-Platinum albums, six other Platinum albums and four more Gold albums. She's scored 10 Top 40 pop singles and 17 Top 40 Adult Contemporary tracks as well as a string of Contemporary Christian chart-toppers while winning six Grammy Awards and numerous Dove Awards.

With fans clamouring for new music, Amy worked closely with highly acclaimed producer, Marshall Altman (Brooke Frasier, Natasha Bedingfield, Matt Nathanson) and is set to release her first studio album in over 10 years.
