Top 10 Release Of 2008
Posted December 16, 2008
By KevinMcNeese_NRT, Staff Reviewer


It has been a privilege listening Bebo Norman’s music evolve over the years. I’ve certainly been a fan since his debut, enjoying most of what he’s put out there, but his self titled album released this year, and his first of BEC Recordings, has impressed me more than any other album he’s released.

The first track and single from the album, “Pull Me Out,” takes the stripped down Bebo formula and turns it on its head, resulting in Bebo’s biggest track, sonically, to date. Taking depression, a topic that he’s written about multiple times, and struggled with personally for years, Bebo sets a hopeful and even joyful tone to the album with a visual of God reaching to the lowest of low to rescue one of his children. Another standout track is “Britney,” a great example of the depth of story-telling that Bebo squeezes into the majority of his three and a half minute songs.

Beyond a great collection of music, Bebo Norman presents an artist that is truly at the top of his form, both vocally and collaboratively. His openness to work with other songwriters for the first time has certainly paid off and as Bebo begins to confront some of his inner demons beyond his songwriting, we’re seeing an artist who is more vulnerable and honest with the greatness of God than ever before. Given that Bebo has brought us incredible songs like “Light of the World,” and “I Will Life My Eyes,” that’s saying a lot.
