This CD has been amazing for our family. I have a daughter with special needs and this particular sound is totally her jam, she is calmed by it and loves to attempt to hum along and dance to it. Kristen's voice is one-of-a-kind and she really brings these songs to life in a way I hadn't experienced before.
I keep this cd in the car. It never fails to make the ride better. It's a lifesaver.
Pros: Music is great.
Cons: shipping took forever.
I'm not sure what the big deal is about this album. I had 2 different friends recomend it and so I bought it. Its different from other stuff on here and its pretty good. I just like something with a beat. My daughter likes it tho so 4*.
Only 'Sunday music' I will listen to when it's not Sunday.
I bought this for the kids but I can't stop listening to it. Great music with such a good message. Really phenomenal album!
When my wife said I should order this, I rolled my eyes. She'd heard it was good. I ordered it, really, because I knew if I didn't she would, and I knew if she did, she'd leave with a full cart. Imagine my surprise and relief to find a refreshingly clean, stripped-down version of some of the songs of my childhood, instead of the over-produced quasipop stuff out there. It's honestly so good. The singer has soul. She doesn't inject the false emotion and dynamics that are so common on these kinds of albums. It's really just great music.
My kids love it. I thought it might be a little old for them, since it's not in the bouncy, happy style where you hear the smile on the singer's face. But they listen to it any time we're in the car and they know all the words, even to the obscure verses I never knew existed.
I almost gave this 3 or 4 stars because of the process of getting it. I ordered the CD version just before the mp3 was available. When I found out about the mp3 version, I tried to change my order and was told I could not because it had already shipped. Reasonable, right? Well, 3 weeks later, I still hadn't received it (if you're all out and waiting for another shipment, just tell me) and the tracking status was some vague term that could have meant anywhere in the process. It was clearly worth the wait, but wow.
