Reviewed by Stephen Curry

This is the one-time American Idol man's third full album after his self-titled debut in 2010 and 'Who I Am' release the following year. It also contains all the tracks from his 2012 EP 'Starting Line'. All the songs here show a positive faith in God who can tackle any problem. Taking inspiration from Matthew 17:20 the title track is a catchy piano and drum-based pop number while other highlights include "If It's Love" about fighting for a relationship if love is there to fight for and the up-tempo Steven Curtis Chapman-like "Good Love" with its breezy ukulele accompaniment. "I Believe" is an engaging power ballad calling on us to hold on to our faith in the most difficult circumstances. All in all, a thoughtful and well produced pop album though in places it struggles to show sufficient distinctiveness to rise above the welter of pop releases.

11 songs by US singer/songwriter of American Idol 2010 fame.

"... This album is very much my journey, and what I have found in my journey is just a lot of hope. I think that's what comes out in these songs, regardless of where you come from or where you are in life or what you're going through. There's hope here for everyone." - Jason Castro

Produced by Matt Bronleewe, Ben Glover, and David Garcia, the songs on Only a Mountain are fuelled by "the realization that life is beautiful," Castro says. "It's a lifestyle philosophy that i carry: What good can we do today? How can we be a light in the challenging world in which we currently live? I feel like I'm coming into my own. This is just my story to tell."
