This album features independent singer-songwriters from the growing music scene in Utah as they gather to contribute to Eric Robertson's arrangements of classic LDS hymns. The production quality gives the hymns a fresh treatment that will appeal to an adolescent and young adult audience while paving new ground for spiritual music in the LDS tradition. This exciting collection is a perfect blend of old and new, tradition and innovation, creating a fresh hybrid unlike anything you've heard before.
I have listened to this album many times and appreciate the spirit it brings. The compilation of new voices, along with updated arrangements of well know hymns gives me something that is fresh and new but old and familiar. I recommend this to people of all ages. I gave this album to my 80-year-old mother in law and she loved it. But I can see how this will be most appealing to younger generations since it has such an inventive and buoyant sound.
If you want to update your Sunday music library, you will love this album.
I am picky when it comes to the hymns and although the music and voices of this CD were good it wasn't my favorite. It didn't keep my attention that much because it was a little dull. However, after saying that I still think it was good that is why I gave it 3 stars. I didn't hate but I didn't love it either.
