I am told that there is currently a huge buzz in the States for this so gifted singer/songwriter who's moved from Australia to relocate in Nashville. Her music has been grandly described as a cross between Enya and Amy Grant. On this, the best debut collection that I have ever had the good fortune to review, Ms Tumes comes within a whisker of living up to everybody's great expectations. Her voice and songwriting seamlessly combine to bring an ethereal quality that I have rarely encountered before. Yet I can also detect other voices on this album. Listen, if you'll pardon the pun, to the title track and tell me if you can't detect the vocal style of producer Charlie Peacock. You can also hear it on "Heaven Will Be Near Me" and above all on "Feel". Whilst "Christ Of Hope" sounds like Mrs Chapman in Celtic mode, only those as old as Peacock himself will recognise the voice on "Healing Waters" as uncannily similar to that of "70s hippy singer/songwriter Judee Sill who once sang "Jesus Is A Crossmaker". When you have had your fill of rock and roll, here is the ultimate album to round off the end of a perfect day.

I was watching late night videos on TBN, and I saw one for this debut cd. The song was "Feel", and I just luved this song immediately! The video shots for the song were awesome, especially the horse riding clips. Great style and lyrics; kind'a celtic sounding. The opening title song "Listen" definitley has that celtic sound; WOW! What a sound for ccm. I just luv Michelle's voice, it is soo amazing! Charlie Peacock produced this magnificent cd; and adds his wondrous vocals to "Healing Waters". The songs on this cd are simply just a nice, fresh breath of ccm. "CHRIST of Hope" is a cd favorite, another song on my luv list: she sounds a little like Amy Grant on this song. The intro bars to "My Constant One" are similar to the 1985 song by Pam Mark Hall "Sparrow Watcher". The talented Chris Eaton lends his vocals to "Untame Lion";a song inspired by Chronicles of Narnia: I luv the chorus on this song. "Please Come Back" is a song Michelle wrote, inspired by the story of the prodigal son. I really luv this song, the lyrics grab the listener's heart. This cd is a total, nice 'n easy, feel good sound from start to finish. The cd closer "HE's Watching Over You", is a gentle reminder that, the eyes of GOD never miss you. Charlie Peacock produced a gemm cd! Buy this cd if you do not have it!! GOD Bless! -Don
