Amazing Praise & Worship Debut
Posted January 30, 2008
By KevinMcNeese_NRT, Staff Reviewer


Raw. Artistic. Worshipful. Passionate. Other descriptive words come to mind when trying to describe MercyMe's national debut release Almost There, and all fall under the category of complementary. A modern praise and worship album written with creativity both lyrically and musically, Almost There is another defining album in this genre that continues to develop and grow with more and more artists jumping aboard. Bart Millard's lead vocals are warm and inviting and complement both the pop/rock sound and the inspirational worship music. The definite highlight on this album is the worship/ballad "I Can Only Imagine," a song that Amy Grant currently purchased rights to market and release as a single from her upcoming 2002 release. The song starts out with just piano that instantly invokes chills and builds dynamically into a powerful display of drums and guitar. But what makes the song are the lyrics, penned by Bart Millard himself. The song speaks about that day that we all dream about when we finally meet Jesus. "Surrounded by your glory/What will my heart feel/Will I dance for you Jesus/Or in awe of you be still." It's a song that can't be listened to with eyes open, and instead of being the only highlight, it's surrounded by 10 other songs penned with the same passion. Don't miss this album. You won't be disappointed
